Drawing around Sagrada Família

In 2012, I spent a week sketching around the Sagrada Família. Had an amazing time drawing the inside and out of this fantastic building, along with the intense street life around it. The two and a half sketchbooks that I filled was then published in this Sketchguide from Zahorí in 2013.

Right now, the book is available from at a very reasonable price, so if you´re into Gaudí, the Sagrada Família, Barcelona or just enjoy plain sketching and drawing, this is the moment to get your copy!

Want to see more? This link will take you to Zahorís intro of the book, with a video and all. Also, more pages from the original sketchbooks below.

Packing for Clermont-Ferrand

Monday, November 14th, 2011


I have been busy busy busy lately, packing my sketchbooks and some paintings, getting ready to head off to Clermont-Ferrand in France for the Rendezvous du Carnet de Voyage! I feel honored to have been invited to the Rendezvous this year, and also to exhibit my paintings in Vic-le-Comte.

Otherwise I always go places with my dear M, but this travelling-on-my-own thing is becoming quite the habit this year – first the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Lisbon, and now this! If you are anywhere near the Rendezvous – come keep me company for a few minutes! I´ll be in the Scandinavian corner! : )

Portrait format Moleskine, anyone?

Friday, June 18th, 2010

fake_molieJust a thought: wouldn´t it be nice to see the Moleskine Watercolour Notebook in portrait format? Picture it before you, opening a portrait format Watercolour Notebook and having that almost square shaped spread to work on! Quite nice, huh? Because, honestly, the existing ones have a rather hopeless extreme landscape format, that many of us just don´t find very useful.

So, as an experiment, I created a Facebook group (my first, and probably last) to see if it´s possible to have some influence on what Moleskine decide to put out on the market. But to have any effect at all, a group needs members, right? Therefore, if you feel the same about this, follow the link below to join the group! And don´t play it safe by just hitting “Like”, JOIN! ;)

We would love to see a Moleskine Watercolor Notebook in PORTRAIT format
