illustration of In the summer of 2018 there were several forest fires in Norway. One such fire stretched 20 kilometers along a train line, which was investigated by the Accident Investigation Board Norway, to find the cause and how to avoid further fires.

The article details the cause of the forest and shrub fires (also detailed below), but also the Accident Investigation Board Norway’s recommendation of how to prevent similar fires from happening at a later point.
illustration of A fan art poster based on the video game Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy, the protagonist of the game stands in the foreground as one of the dinosaur-like machine walks past.

The colours I've utilised in this image is a reflection of the rich colours in the game as well as the way the lighting and time of day changes the colours in the game.
illustration of Plastic is slowly taking over our world. On land single-use bags float around like ghosts, but, instead of moving through things they get stuck in them. Trees and bushes tend to wear these shapeless plastic ornaments to no fault of their own.
illustration of On a scorching day humans are so happy that they can be able to keep their abode cooler, though, it seems the plants are envying their wild cousins. They stare out of the windows longingly, wishing to be able bask in the sun and fresh air.
illustration of Fan art for the wonderful game that is Journey by Thatgamecompany. If you haven’t played this game yet, I highly recommend you do, as it’s such a lovely and serene game.
illustration of Packaging design created for a fictional brand as part of a personal project. The inspiration behind the design came from tea and its country of origin: China. The illustrations were inspired by inspired by Asian ink wash paintings, also known as sumi-e.

The four different products are one for each of the types of tea you can find: black, white, green and yellow.
illustration of Plastic, no matter how big or small, poses a threat to our wildlife. Six-pack rings are known to end up around limbs and even necks, slowly cutting off blood suppy to the animal, leaving it in agony as it cannot get rid of it itself. Some animals end up eating the plastic, which they cannot digest. While others get stuck in bags, but might hopefully manage to get out.
illustration of A portrait of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia from Star Wars Empire Strikes back. This was drawn after her passing.
illustration of Fire, and especially forest fires are something I really dread, as I know the destruction they cause, especially if they’re not under control. 

During the summer of 2018 Europe experienced a massive heatwave, which also meant drought, which in turn sparked several forest fires. Parts of Scandinavia was set ablaze. There were so many and big forest fires in Sweden that several EU countries sent firefighters and equipment to help to get the fires under control.
illustration of A memorial image of the dog of very dear friend mine. My friend would bring his dog to work, and it was the most chilled dog ever, who would lie around and never be annoyed when someone came over to pet him.
Sadly this lovable and wonderful character passed away in the middle of 2019. He will be sorely missed, not just by his family, but everyone who knew him.
