When the last story is told, #33
As announced a week or so ago on Twitter, I set up a little shop to sell my artwork from When the last story is told — I didn’t post it here until now because it was a bit too rough to look at, but a few extra hours made it presentable to the discerning readers of this blog.
So far the prices for works are ridiculously low (so get them before I change my mind!) and because I couldn’t be bothered with very detailed shipping prices either, all items ship for free to the Nordic countries, too. I’ll very likely regret that as well.
Bear in mind that the printed book is also still available as a signed and numbered Artist’s Edition, including individually hand-crafted bookplates! All of this, of course, goes directly toward buying me time to make Prisoner’s Cinema, my next book which I’m really looking forward to putting out next year! Think of this artwork sale as an old-timey kickstarter, if that softens your spending tendons a bit.
Thank you, and choose wisely.
Hey all, a quick update to let you know that I just finished the first third of the pieces that are going into Prisoner’s Cinema. That is not bad if I do say so myself, and if responses from people I have showed them to are anything to go by, the book is shaping up…
The contact section has been updated, please amend your address books accordingly. While I prefer to host as much of my online presence myself, I have added a few privacy-aware third party platforms to cast my complicit web wider.

Last summer I announced that I started work on a new book, and at the time I intended to have the bulk of the artwork finished before I started university in August. Of course, it didn't turn out that way. Recently, however, I have started a enough new pieces for it that I feel confident…
So I updated my Artmoney account with 15 pieces today. They are little exploratory pieces that I do at the kitchen table when I have an hour or two, or if I’m just stuck on a piece for that book I’d intended to be done with last summer.
Artmoney is a project that I heard about years ago, but never got around to signing up for until recently. It allows artists to produce their own money, all to a set format and value, which are accepted as currency in a few select shops worldwide, as well as sold on the artmoney website. Since my no-silos policy prevent me from using funding sites like Kickstarter, this humble, offbeat initiative is a tolerable compromise between making a bit of money and signing up for an external service.
Do check out all the artmoney – I mean mine, of course, “all my artmonies”! – and support the arts, one homemade note at at time!
