Siege of Vyborg
The opening illustration from The Birch and the Star, a storybook I illustrated. It's available in Swedish here -> www.scriptum.fi/sv/books/child…

From Wikipedia:

The Siege of Viborg took place in the spring of 1710 during the Great Northern War (1700–1721), as a second attempt by the Russians to capture the fortress port of Viborg (Vyborg), near the modern border between Russia and Finland, after a failed attempt in 1706. After the outbreak of the war, Swedish forces had fortified themselves in the port of Viborg. In order to assure safety for the newly founded city of Saint Petersburg, Peter the Great ordered the Swedish fort to be secured. A first unsuccessful attempt was made in 1706. Later plans were put on hold because of other ongoing conflicts but, after the Russian success at the Battle of Poltava in June 1709, the men and resources were available to capture the town.

Thirteen thousand troops under General-Admiral Fyodor Apraksin marched to Viborg and laid siege on 22 March 1710. Magnus Stiernstråle, the Swedish commander at the fort, waited in vain for Swedish assistance, while a stalemate ensued because the Russians lacked sufficient artillery. In April, Peter the Great managed to bring through a fleet of 250 ships to deliver guns and supplies, and to help perform a final assault on Swedish positions. After these Russian attacks, the Swedish garrison surrendered on 12 June 1710.

Book Cover-The Birch and The Star
Fairly recently I illustrated a modern version of an old story by renowned Finnish author Zacharias Topelius. It's a story about two siblings who are trying to find their way back home, having been abducted during the Great Northern War. With the guidance of two birds, the siblings are determined to find the big birch that they so fondly remembered from their childhoods, and the star that illuminated its crown.

The book is available in Swedish here-> www.scriptum.fi/sv/books/child…

D R I F T - Exhibition poster
Shit, haven't posted anything here in two years. Partly because I've simply lost interest in this place, but also because I've been busy with a book-illustration project, as well as my graduation project. In other words, stuff that I can't show here yet. I hope you've all been well.

Here's the poster i made for our bachelor's exhibition. It opens in less than five hours, so get over here!

Today marks the 8th anniversary of my presence on this website. Yay.

But I am now also on Tumblr!

You'll find lots of sketches and other content there that won't be posted here so do check it out.

Also

I recently voulenteered for a photoshoot with my friend KasperGustavsson.
The result is crisp and clean with strong shadows, just the way I like it!

While I am flattered by your very direct approach, I'm going to have to say no.
