Haverholm

(b.1976) is a commercial and graphic artist and teacher living in Malmö, Sweden. Alumnus of the Malmö School of Comics Art, co-founder of the Danish comics association, and long time member of the art comics collective C'est Bon Kultur. Whittling away at sequential narrative from his 2006 graphic novel debut, via musical expressions in comics onto the minimal, observational sketchbook work that now comprises his main efforts, he feels he has cut to the bone of comics and is now going for the marrow.

Sneak peek: Prisoner’s Cinema

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!

An emphatic ≠

Spotted on a parking automat, I see three possible interpretations of this glyph: 1. An asterisk coupled with an equation sign (perhaps meaning that the solution to a question in the main text is hidden away in a footnote) 2. The K and the E are comfortable enough in their relation to share a bed…
