I have been planning this together with the local commune and the cultural arts center, Kulturmagasinet, here in Sundsvall for a while now.

Her name is Linga Sjöqvist and she is working with several producers in Sweden. I love her voice,... Continue Reading →
Tonight I'm watching soccer, england vs italy, and drawing on a new piece of art. Sometimes you can get inspiration on the weirdest of places. In the sofa infront of the tv can actually be a quite good place to start! A little distraction and some noice can be quite helpfull for some people while... Continue Reading →
