This is so stupid

Yes, this is very stupid indeed.

Locked out!

I am still locked out of my apartement! I thought I should give you some background information of why I couldnt open the door with my spare key ...

No Barton today.

Since I have been locked out of my apartement, I will not be able to post comic strips today. Maybe later if I manage to get in to my apartement. Sorry for any inconveniance.

Release of Babian no. 14

Cover by Sofia Falkenhem

Today a new issue of webcomic-magazine is released! I have a comic there! One of my favourites is Kalle Landegren's contribution, Clownen Jorgi, a psychedelic story about a clown. The clown is a common figure in horror-movies and comics, almost a bit over-used, but Kalle get's away with it by his cool "retro" style and insane and grotesque humor.

Also, check out Sara Hansson, Reetta Laitinen, Sofia Falkenhem and Rebecka Lindberg's contributions! And don't forget Erik Melin, Adam Boman and Beata Hemer! Ah, what the hell, check out every comic in this webzine!

Hjärnan säger nej, men Barton säger ja!

I did an experiment in combining simple drawings with illustrator. The result was this weird little comic on the theme The brain says no, but Barton says yes:

Yesterday was the official end of pigweek, but since then more pigs have been sprouting up and more seems to come. A group has been created on facebook to celebrate the memory of pigweek.

Today i've seen famous comic artist Malin Biller's pig and I believe there are a lot of other pigs out there by now. this is now an internet phenomena out of control! Congratulations to everyone who have been drawing pigs this week!

The Week Of Pigs, day 3 -- Pig Men!

On my journeys throughout this big world I have stumbled upon a strange and bizarre phenomena. I speek of Pig Men, humans which have succumbed to the foul nature of the beast. Equipped with a ghastly snout and and strange guttural vocabulary they dwell in small communities and forests in the inland of sweden.

I also have proof of the existence of Pig Men outside Europe in this videoclip:

The Week of Pigs, day 2

The pig of the day is stubborn. Doesnt want to move an inch. No matter how hard you pull its ears, it just doesnt wanna listen to you! But, let us not stick to the slow pigs, let's move on! Somewhere there is a field where the happy one's running around, squeeking their joy!

I've noticed a lot of pig activity on internet since yesterday. Frida Ulvegren, Louise Lange, Mikael Sol, Åsa Ekström , Nina Bunjevac , Simon Andersson and maybe even more people have started to make internet more pig friendly!
