i have a question! 🙈 its a bit scary to ask but i would be so happy if you could tell me a little bit about what your favourite posts from me are? would you like to see more of something? my process? workspace? tutorials? products i make from my illustrations? pictures of me 😜 and my family? or do you prefer to see just the finished illustrations?! 🤔 i am happy for any thoughts about this. the instagram algorithm has changed so much since i started this account and i think at the moment how it works is that every post is just shown to about 10% of your followers and if a lot of them like it from the start then it will be shown to more people. (i am not sure it is exactly like this but it is what i have heard...) i think this makes chosing what to post a bit stessful 😣 but i am trying to turn this inte something positive..! and make this account as fun as possible four you to follow 😅 so i thought you could perhaps help me in a direction so that i share more of what you really want to see!! So feel free to hit me me up with feedback and suggestions!! (no critisism please because then i might start crying) 🙈💛😍 ps. remember to like posts from people you want to see more of so that they contiunue to pop up in your feed!!! 🤩 big hug from me!!! .

valentines day coming up, i have not many good things to say about this day (except that my baby Estrid turns 6months old feb 14th 😍) but i use it as an excuse for searching in my archive for some ”best of” - love themed drawings! first up: this sunflower! 😋💛🌻

the bears with only fur. need to make a second one with the funky clothes, right?! 😄🐻 ps. love everyone who called this drawing ”bearobics”, you are all brilliant persons. 🙌
#bears #illustration #sketchbook #doodle #bearillustration #drawing #fineliner
i had a poll (voting session?) in my stories the other day to let you decide if some bears in a drawing should have clothes or not, and a majority voted for ”no clothes”. i will post the final drawing here tomorrow but i had to first make this comparison to show what you actually voted for 😋😎🐻
During the autumn i made a job for @linakworld (a company that makes all the technical things behind for example tables that can move up and down!) they wanted some illustration for their monter at the @sthlmfurnfair that is live this week! they wanted some illustrations to show how their products can work in different contexts. i told them that i don’t draw people, i draw bears 😅 and they said GO! i think it turned out pretty awesome 😎🤟⭐️ the figures are die cut and mounted on the walls. i think i might have the best job in the world!!! if you want to see them in the fair , it is monter (A36:28) #stockholmsmässan #stockholmfurniturefair #stockholmfurniturefair2018 #linak #linakworld #majasbok

OMG! finally they are here! the babywearing slings with my cat pattern 🙈😍 this was a collaboration between me and lovely swedish @sjala and i am so happy for this because i think it is so amazing to carry babies like this. i usually use an ergobaby to carry my babies but this is one step cooler! 😎🤟 i only got a few ones and they are now up in my webshop! (link in bio!) i think they will go pretty fast so be quick if you want one 😊🎉
ps. this photo was taken when i just got the sling and had not practiced tying it so much so its not done perfect..! but i like the picture so much anyway.

I will now ask you for a little favor 🙈 Maybe you know that i am from the beginning an architect! and my boyfriend too! and he has made a beautiful cabin that you might have seen pictures of in my stories sometimes. now the architectural site @archdaily have a contest called ”building of the year” were all the best architectural projects in the world are competing! and now, since our cabin was published on their site last year, it has, if it gets enough votes, the chance to be nominated to the shortlist of this competition.!!!that would be the coolest thing ever if that happened..!! SO... if you like our house (you can swipe to see more pictures!) and want to vote for it we would be so super duper incredibly happy if you did!!!. the link to the voting is in my profile, (it takes about two minutes because you have to create an account to vote) its such a beautiful house and i am really proud of Daniel for making it so if you would do this i would really be so grateful! 🙈💛💛💛 thanks! (his architect office is called @lowenwidman_arkitekter if you want to see more of their work! (ps. fun fact is that we actually built a big part of the house ourselves, not me so much but Daniel and his dad 💛🙌)
pictures in this post are by @akeeson @lowenwidman_arkitekter and @amanda.lindgren

I made a pattern with the qouache painting from the previous post! (if you swipe to the right in the picture you see the ”tile” that the pattern is made up from.) to make it i scanned the drawing and then edited it digitally to make the tile, and then added a soft cream white background to make it softer! now i just need to figure out what to use it for 🙃

thanks for all the lovely comments about this gouache painting that i showed in my stories last night. 🙈💛 its SO fun to work with colour!! one part of me have mixed feelings about sharing these kind of illustrations here, i realise that my feed would look cleaner with just ”one style” of posts, like just black and white line drawings. but that is just ONE part of my creative work and i just cant force myself to stay that coherent just to please the look of my instagram feed 😂😅😆 i don’t have the patience for that. so i hope you enjoy following my process just as messy as it actually is 😅 ps. some of you have asked about gouache tutorials and i am absolutely no expert in painting with gouache but i have my way of doing it and really like it so if you want i could try to show my own little tips and trick in some videos here in the future!! if you have any specific questions bring them on and i will try to answer!! .

found this old scribble when i cleaned out a drawer in the studio! a portrait of when estrid was a piglet in my belly! second picture is when she was two days old sleepig next to her brother. and then following are some more recent pictures of them! now she is five months old (!) and Wille turns 3 in february. i love them so much that it hurts.
a little bit of unconditional love can brighten up any gloomy day! 😅😇
Here is one more drawing tutorial (I know, i am on fire! 🤩) this time: a FLY! I dont think anyone wished for this one 😂 but i love doodling flies. they are so gross and cute at the same time. like this emoji💩!
I am thinking of changing the title on these videos because it is a bit misleading when it says ”how to” - its of course not showing ”the correct way” of drawing. its just an example of how i would do it.
Any suggestions of a better wording? maybe ”Let’s draw a...” ?
ps. SO fun to see when you post your own drawings from the tutorials, please tag me so i dont miss it! 😍 .

thanks for the fantastic response on my llama tutorial 😄@kaylamichellesmith i hope you meant in a good way when you said it changed your life 😂😇 . however experts were quick to inform me that it looks more like an alpaca, they are right it actually does 😅 anyway if you draw one yourself and want to share it, would be so fun if you tag me in the picture, so i can see 😍 . in my stories i will post a video with real time speed when i draw them! .

I listed all your wishes about drawing tutorials from a few posts back and decided to try to show how to draw a llama in a simple way. it was a bit tricky but now when i figured it out its SO easy and so much fun! i am doodling little llamas everywhere now 😄 (note! the video is speeded up x1,5 and even more in the end, so you dont think i am some kind of a superwoman) also people have been asking if i have a youtube channel or something where i share tutorials and i dont at the moment BUT there is an amazing website called @skillshare where you can learn thousands of cool things, illustration, cooking, ceramics, you name it ! its online courses and one day i hope i will have my own illustration course there ! anyway they have a great campaign right now and i will post a a link in my stories where you can get access to all their online courses for three months 😍 (this is not a sponsored post but the link in my stories is 😄🎉) i really do recommend it for anyone who is eager to learn something new!!!!! (so proud to have this collaboration because they are the best and tutorials are the meaning of life-ish)
