eggs

I am taking part in The Lindt Big Egg Hunt – an incredible event challenging the public to take on the world’s biggest Easter egg hunt while raising vital funds for Action for Children.

The two and-a-half-foot high fiberglass eggs have been designed by leading artists and designers, such as Sam Taylor-Johnson (formerly Taylor-Wood), Alexis Harding, Billy Childish and Michael Petry, and feature some of the UK’s best-loved children’s characters including Peter Rabbit, Peppa Pig, Moshi Monsters, SpongeBob SquarePants, Thomas the Tank Engine and Ben 10.

The hunt captured the imagination of the country last year when it landed in London for six weeks – setting two Guinness World Records, raising over £1 million for charity and engaging more than one million people.

All money raised from the hunt will go directly to Action for Children.

My egg, “Where did Anna go?”

I am very excited about my Cassette bedding set for Land of Nod. I have also done a dog one and a ABC one for 2013 collection. Nearly even more excited about them!

I am currently working on an AD campaign for “VW”. The campaign includes both print and website.

The story goes that “Vic”, the “VW” representative is with you all the way, hence him being hidden in all the images.

I am hoping to get paid in cars (just one… please?).

I have made some more stuff for the fun loving company “Teelocker” in Hong Kong. My drawings were made into designs for T-shirts, belts, hats and Vans look alike shoes etc.

I am exhibiting together with 5 other Swedish illustrator at Fika, Brick Lane, East London. The theme of the show is “Fika”, an activity us Swedes love-sitting down with a cinnamon bun and cup of coffee!

New Melamine tray for sale in my online shop. There are also new prints, among other an Animal ABC. Have a look!

I was comissioned to do the cover for The Guardian weekend magazine.

The article was about “Designers vaginas” and the new trend among American surgeons and patients. I loved embroidering the piece, since I haven’t done that in a while!
