Couldn’t find the text at Helsingborgs Dagblad‘s site, which is too bad because I really liked today’s chapters. It was about urban myths about terrorists (the thankful terrorist who returns a good deed by giving advice about places to stay away from during certain periods of time – nowadays the tale’s star is an arab, some time ago they were Irish). I did my own version:

World Tour 2010…

May 24, 2010

How come everytime you decide to take a night off, it’s to survive rather than relax? At least in this line of work (precarious illustrator, pro-bono graphic designer, cyberpunk comics artist)…

Anyway. This is what’s going on this year, past and future, as far as I can see right now. I may skip some of it to take a night off, and I may end up in places I haven’t yet thought of.

And of course, yesterday was Sunday, which meant another illustration for Helsingborgs Dagblad‘s publishing of Lena Sundström’s Världens Lyckligaste Folk:

Translation:

Why of course, everyone is welcome in Sweden! Where did you say you’re coming from?

Eritrea? Oh no. You can come back when you’re from Holland…

A little sample from today’s installment on www.elftorp.com/piracy:

Information is dangerous only when it breeds new thoughts, thoughts when they breed action.

Piracy on the web…

Today’s page. See more at www.elftorp.com/piracy!

Book 001, chapter 1, page 4.

Updated daily, so check back to the site tomorrow. And the day after that. And so on… Maybe not this weekend ’cause I’ll be at the Komiks.dk festival, but even then I might find a solution, so it’s still worth checking.

Yesterday’s illustration for Lena Sundström‘s series Världens Lyckligaste Folk in Helsingborgs Dagblad:

Well, it was nice of you to join us for the cooking, but we think it might be best if you leave now.

So stay away!

Återupptäck MAUS…

May 8, 2010

I just finished my contribution for Seriefrämjandet‘s Återupptäck MAUS event. If accepted, it will be published in an issue of Bild & Bubbla and featured in an exhibition shown at different locations…

Here’s a panel from it:

But here in Sweden, we have no bad conscience.

What are a couple of military transports compared to real death camps?

CBAvol11 illustration

Illustration for the upcoming C’est Bon Anthology vol. 11 (C’est Bon Kultur):

I thought the theme for this issue was quite interesting. All participating artists are, or have been, part of the editorial crew, and all the comics included are remakes of comics published in past issues av CBA and/or other publications from CBK.

I chose to do my own version of an image by Daniel Novakovic from the old Publikation(34)C’est Bon.

I’m looking forward to seeing Allan Haverholm‘s variation on one of my old comics…

I’m starting to run out of copies of the first Piracy is Liberation book, so I decided to share the entire series as a webcomic.

The webcomic will be updated once a day. As an extra bonus, I’ll occasionally be
running a commentary track along with the images. I also might do some pages
now and then in color…

It all begins May 15 2010 at www.elftorp.com/piracy!

For some reason, I couldn’t find the link to last Sunday’s episode of Världens Lyckligaste Folk in Helsingborgs Dagblad. Here‘s the latest episode.

And here are the two latest illustrations:
