The flowers in my garden

We have mostly edible things in our garden. Most flowers can be eaten without any greater harm; dandelions, chive flowers and strawberry blossoms. We're bringing up our children to try everything and not be picky. We didn't think the 1 year old would take it quite that literally. We knew he would like to try eating grass, and that's fine. Maybe a fistful of soil, that's ok too. But to be sucking on a snail? An alive one... Bring back the picky children, I say!

Theo and mamma in Milk Magazine

Lovely piece of press in French Milk magazine. The main picture is so sweet ( photographed by Christian Doyle 3 years ago...) and seems like a lifetime ago...  this little boy has now grown into a seven year old and has had two siblings since.

Springier spring illustration

Ah, couldn't resist. Had to do it straight away. 

Spring has come!

The colours in this illustration don't do spring justice but I love the way spring is bursting out of the seams and the hair of the girls. I should do a green version of this, with butterflies and blossoms.

Hello Book!

Went in to London to meet the publishers of "my" book, face to face. ( Obviously not just mine, lots of people involved.) We had met before, over a colourless Skype connection and Claudette and Anemarieke looked very chic in the nippy London morning. I went on into Earls Court to see the book sitting there, on a shelf, at the London Book fair. My heart made a little jump. Hello Book!

Chocolate Owls...

Found a bag of easter eggs yesterday. Hidden away from hungry little fists. Hidden away so well I'd forgotten about them... I ate them all! So now I better replace them... before those hungry little hands come back.

Would you...?

We're conducting a poll over at www.isak.co.uk to find out if this would be well received out there. Thommy & Ted are close friends with Blossom & Bill and all the rest of Familjen. Do you think they should feature a product for Isak? If so, what kind of product?

Friday Patterns

Feeling nostalgic in the spring rain... The sound of wind and rain hitting the roof brings back memories of  childhood. Drawing in the attic for hours, waiting for the rain to stop. And then all of a sudden it would! The woods are never more silent than after a spring rain.

My Body!

Well, not mine personally... but all our bodies! They are beautiful. This poster has been made to take the "ugly" out of bodily functions and to make it fun to learn about the functions of our organs. I'm naming the boy Theo and the girl I'm naming after Theo's lovely little friend Emily.


It's been a while... I thought I'd best show some new work. Ever since our first son was born we have been telling him this troll story where he himself has the leading part and it's now gone to the point where every body in the family is involved. Over the years we have brought over a hand full of trolls to life. Our Trolls live in the old forest of Tiveden in Sweden. We've been to their caves, walked on their paths and swum in their lakes. Once they came on holiday to England and camped in our garden, but that story we were asked never to tell again. Best to keep the trolls further away, not let them get too close...

Tree Top Friends

"My" baby gym in this month's Junior magazine!

Tuesday, 18 January 2011


Here are some spring colours to cheer up and inspire. Can't get enough of triangles and geometrical shapes at the moment, and neither can anyone else it seems! When I choose the designs for the Nova wallpaper range for Isak there weren't many triangles about. Now they're everywhere. Just seems to be in the air. One of those things...
