Here is a little video of the wall i made over at @designtorget (götgatan 31, Stockholm) . really hard to take good indoor pictures without so much natural light but i still hope you can get an idea of it! its pretty big!!! can you spot the animals in there?! 🌿🐱🐻🐰🌿 ps. check out my stories today, there is a new @skillshare campaign where you can get 2 months of free creative classes!!! its my favorite place on internet to learn new skills for my illustration work. 🤓
a pic from earlier this week when i made a big mural drawing over at one of the shops of @designtorget (Götgatan 31, Stockholm). they are reopening on monday, july 16th after a big makeover! and then you can come by and see the full wall if you are in the area 😋! i used @molotowheadquarters acrylic markers and drew directly on the wall, a bit scary at first because there is no perfect way to fix mistakes, so i had to really concentrate, but it was S O much fun!!! photo by my lovely intern @felice_lycklig #designtorget #mural #muralpainting #muralart #molotowmarkers #acrylicpaint #acrylicmarkers
It’s here!!! my uterus print (good symbolic picture right ?! 😎) its an art print made on velvet paper in a limited edition of 75.
This was my first time trying this exclusive printing technique so i was a bit nervous how it would turn out, but it was soo cool to see the result - the prints actually look just like (or almost better than) the original gouache drawing!!! 😍🙌 .
Because of the motive and because I could have died when giving birth to my first child if I would not have been in an hospital, I have decided that 20% of the money for this print will go to medical care for women with child birth related injuries who dont have access to the same medical infrastructure that i was lucky to have.
So the project that you are supporting by buying this print is called @hamlinfistulaethiopia / @fistulasjukhuset (swedish) and is an organisation treating child birth injuries and training midwives in Ethiopia. if you have time to read about their work i really recommend it, i promise it will be hard to keep the tears away when learning about how they are fundamentally changing womens lives every single day.
my mother in law works at hospital here in sweden and she introduced me to this organisation, when its her birthday she ask her friends and family to donate money to their work instead of giving her gifts! pretty inspirational!
you find the print in my webshop! link in bio. 📸 @mathildelpn

Just have to share this pic from the other day when my son had some close encounter with a 🐑 as you can tell he is totally helping me with research for my next animal book 😎🧐
I don’t know if anyone has missed this, but the text is referring to the jacket Melania Trump was wearing the other day visiting immigrant children stuck at the American border separated from their parents, where it said “I really don’t care, do u?” its not a bad joke. it actually happened.
I am terrified by what is going on in the world at the moment.
We will this year have an election in Sweden, and a party that seems to be gaining a major amount of support is a nationalist party with a racist, misogynist agenda.
I can’t even believe I am writing these words because it is so INSANE. Racism is caused by ignorance and fear and I had hoped that 2018, knowledge would have won.
But recent events in the world have again proven that this is clearly not the case.
i would love it if you would take a minute and share if you have any thoughts or ideas of what steps you think people can take in order to make this world a little more well-informed, friendly, more equal and safe place for all of us sharing this wonderful planet.
could be anything; accounts to follow, organisations to support, books to read, protests to attend.
Nothing is too small, nothing is too big.

So proud to present this new collab i have made with @augustno916 and @mimihammer !! They started by selling unique swimwear pieces online and grew from that and now they make so many nice things, all fair trade and all encouraging body positive! i felt so honoured when they asked me to make their new body diversity print 🙈💛 i am really excited and happy how it turned out!!! (i usually make things black and white but i think this colour combination is perfect!!!) #mimiandaugust #mimihammer #augustno916 #bodydiversity #bodypositive #majasbok #tshirt
i am so FRUSTRATED, the last video i uploaded looked blurry for some people (including me 😭) so here is one last try. i would be super grateful if you could comment below if it looks blurry or crisp?! because if its still blurry now i feel like giving up posting videos on instagram and that would be so sad because so many ask for these drawing tutorials!!!! fingers crossed for this little beaver!! or maybe i should just start a youtube channel with video tutorials instead 😅 #drawing #drawingtutorial #beaver #howtodraw #illustration #illustrationvideo #pigmamicron
new drawing tutorial!!! or at least a video of how i draw... a beaver 🙃 (with a flower in its hand hehe) hope you can get some inspiration from it!! (for this drawing i used a fineliner with a 0.5 mm tip!) #drawingtutorial #beaver #howtodraw #illustration #illustrationvideo #doodle #pigmamicron #dailydoodle #dravibgvideo #tutorial

wah I just recieved the chinese version of my book (The illustrated compendium of amazing animal facts). this feels extra special because i lived in shanghai for a year (2009-2010)! back then i was interning at an architect office (fun fact about me; i have a masters degree in architecture) that was a really cool year but i was never 100% comfortable as an architect and if someone would have told me then that i would be an illustrator with a book published in chinese less than 10 years later i would probably not have believed that! now i would love to go back in time and give that young confused maja a hug and tell her everything will be just fine and amazing! anything can happen you all! follow your dreams!!! 😘😘😘
what this is?! ah its just my own tissue paper with my birds on!!! 😍🙈💛 i am so excited because i have been planning to make something like this for years and now they are finally here!! normally to produce something like this you have to make an order of like one million sheets and that is impossibe for most humans and independent artists who like to make nice things. then i found @noissueco who have made these for me and the cool thing with them is that it is possible to order from 250 sheets and up, which is also a lot but not insanely much 😅 i will use them to pack your webshop orders 😍😍😍 plus i will send THREE sheets (50x70cm) with every order in the webshop so you can use them for wrapping too!! (they will be carefully folded to fit the size of package that the rest of your order is sent in!!) 🐦🐦🐦

when someone orders one of my books directly from me, i always write and draw a little something in it! (with a special greeting if you wish!) and then gift wrap it and send it together with a little print from the book! in this case the otters holding hands in the water! there are cheaper ways to buy my books in shops or online and i encourage you to get it in any way you prefer, but i think its cool to be able to offer it in my webshop with this special treatment from the author 😋 (to the right in the picture are my mini businesscards! )🙃
