(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.
