“Kärlek” is “Love” in Swedish.

“Kärlek” is a series of both illustrative and photographic illustrations exploring “Love”. I only focused on the love between lovers, rather than friends and family. As people will always find it easier to relate to and since it’s such a abstract topic to explore. It would be interesting to see how I manage to illustrate it in my own way.

This is rather personal investigating of love, as I am looking at the topic in my own point of view. What I am trying to achieve through this project is a better understanding of myself and my identity. I want to create something, which could touch the audience’s heart. This is not a project of showing off how great love is, but a project of rediscovery of myself.

So far, five individual projects were done and they could be viewed as an individual project under the “Illustration” category.

First one is “Can you see me?”, an illustrated book focusing on the feelings and emotion while in love.

The second project, “Kan Du Se Mig?”, focused on the hallucinated, dreamy state of being in Love.

The Third project, “The Fox Story”, a short illustrated story focused on the dark side of love.

The forth project, “The Illustrations”, was a collection of illustrations produced under the theme.

The fifth one, the major piece “I can see you without seeing you”. Is a sum up of my personal realisation, and a piece represents my identity and my love. A special gift for a special person.

Another illustration under the same theme, “You are not listening”.

Kärlek – Illustrations

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Part of the on- going project, “Kärlek”.

Illustrations done under the theme “Kärlek”, which means “love” in swedish. I won’t give up any explaination for the following illustrations, as these illustrations aim to trigger the audience’s own experience. Everyone will find their own unique answer to my illustrations.

The Fox Story

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Part of the on- going project, “Kärlek”.

A short story of a girl being consumed by the demon fox. Girls and fox were used as a metaphor to describe if one is not able to control the “negatives” and eventually it will be consumed by it. The meaning of “negatives” are left opened for the audience to decide in their own perspective.

Kan Du Se Mig?

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Part of the on- going project, “Kärlek”.

A rather experiemental approach to illustrate the feeling of love.

All photographs were taken in low shutter speed, capturing the dreamy state while in love, everything is blurry and uncertain. Being Clouded by sudden emotions and feelings. Everything then become so unreal.

Photographs were then put into a book accompanied with text, hand written by myself, about my personal experience of love. This piece is an in depth study of my own emotions and rediscover my true identity as a human.

“Kan Du Se Mig” is “Can you see me” in swedish.

The following are a few samples of the photographs.

Can you see me?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Part of the on- going project, “Kärlek”.

A illustrated book illustrating feelings and emotions when one’s in love. The insecurity, despair, uncertainty, and other feelings are explored in this illustrated book. A total of ten illustrations were drawn, each accompanied by a short sentence hinting the emotions of the illustration.

I hate the day I don’t see you.

So confused, so confused.

Since when it has become an addiction which can never be stopped?

Please don’t look away from me.

Always wonder where this feeling of insecurity came from.

I hate to realise I am the one who stopped myself from moving forward.

So many questions, so little time.

Can I have a look at your mind?

I don’t want to drag you out of your life by taking part in yours

Because all I want is a beautiful world with you living in.
