Nature smells good. And slowly the colours are changing. You can see the branches in the birch-trees turn red as they always do just before leafing. Saturday night during Earth Hour I went outside in the dark and two fallow deers passed me by so very close. The thuds of hoofs on the ground, and then the loud and spectral barking. Living this close to nature is never boring.

Many wonderful animations to discover on YouTube. Milch (Part 1/2) for example. Enjoy!
At home there is still a lot of painting and stuff to be done. And sawdust and splinter is almost everywhere... We take a breather in the kitchen, the only place where you can find things inside drawers and cupboards. Kitchen is fine. Kitchen is tidy. Remember this sandblasted glass? Finally... it´s up.
Maybe these photographic tiles could be fun to try?
Hey grey, where is the green? Outside, looking for spring, but it is hiding somewhere. Trying to concilate spring by carrying my green bag but it doesn´t help much. At this very moment snowflakes big as mittens are falling from the sky.
Something for this weekend? Lars Arrhenius´ animations? The Man Without Qualites, for example. But it is a very sad story.
Back from a new trip with my picture book characters Hurman & Vesslan (their names translated into English will be something like Howie U. and the Weasel.) Have been visiting schools and meeting the young readers. Inspiring! Above; some nice drawings made by children in Råsebäckskolan, Hultsfred.
This book project is called Lässurr, wrote about it a year ago. Here and here.
Illustration made for latest issue of the Swedish magazine Tecknaren, about copyright. The graphic designer says to Rune (something like this): Stationary and signboards we had an agreement about, but I´m not sure whether the application on your left upper arm really is included in the using rights...
Floorball tournament in Blankaholm, Saturday. Our ladies´ team struggled hard, came second last, but had fun. (And no, it´s not me, the person in the helmet.)
