In the writing spirit

Jag har precis varit inne i ett par veckors skrivkramp. I två veckor har jag befunnit mig på sidan 39. Så nu ikväll släppte det äntligen! För första gången vill jag fortsätta skriva när jag väl börjar skriva. Innan dess har jag tröttnat efter ett par meningar på sistone. Med lite tur kan jag skriva av mig så pass mycket ikväll att jag kan njuta av min arbetsplats utan att längta hem till den där förbannade boken och lida av ständig prestationsångest. För första gången på säkert två veckor blev det roligt att skriva igen! Kramar på er alla, kära vänner!

The Lack Of Self Criticism In Muslim Communities

In 1979, Monty Python’s movie “Life Of Brian” caused a lot of stir amongst christians in the world. Due to Sweden’s secular society in that time, the movie had premiere in Stockholm of all places in the world. The movie was forbidden in Norway, where heresy was still a crime. The humorous Monty Python gang had to sit in a debate with christian bishops and defend their brilliant movie.

It didn’t take long before the christians actually cooled down and learned to accept the classical comedy. Since then, religion and mostly Christianity has been a popular theme in comedy, to make jokes about and to chritizise. As an atheist, I have no problem with that. But I have a problem with people, comedians and politicians who have completely surrendered to muslim extremism and let the extreme muslims decide what to joke about and what to not joke about.

The muslim community has an issue when it comes to chritisism. The peaceful religion of humanism and peace, must not be mocked, or otherwise you will be killed. That isn’t a peaceful logic at all. But it is surely a logic that is normalized in a lot of islamist circles. But I cannot see this issue amongst christians, jews, buddhists or hindues at all. Imagine a group of jews gathering in the streets, knocking polices and burning their neighbours cars, just because some fool has burned the Talmud in front of them. Imagine christians cutting the throat of a teacher, whose only crime was to uncover a charicature of Jesus or Maria. That doesn’t sound very familiar doesn’t it.

So why does it always happen when you moch islam? Well, the answer is easy. Muslims often come from countries, where their religious freedom are restricted. Therefore they do not have the same tradition of democracy that we have had in the west. That’s not very strange. But we should never let muslim extremists decide for us what is to critisize or mock. Do not stop mocking religion and critizising it, no matter if it’s christianity, judaism or islam. If we stop chritisizing it, the extremists have won.

You can mock and insult ideas, both ideological and religious. That is not the same thing as mocking and insulting people. I don’t like people burning religious books. But it should not be illegal. That’s very dangerous. If you have an idea you want to share and spread, I will listen. But don’t come and say that I’m not allowed burn your book. Do you really believe that people will find your religion convincing if we’re not allowed to burn your book? Are you really so weak in your faith that you let such nonsense effect you? Come on!

Never Before Seen Footage

I’ve now finally moved in to my new appartment. So I discovered some new drawings that i’ve forgotten to show you. Here they are.

Skam Den Som Ger Sig

Första dagen på jobbet kommer allt närmare och då jävlar ska vi börja leta lägenheter så det står härliga till. För övrigt har jag på sistone experimenterat mycket med kartor. Omskrivningen av boken har dessutom kommit igång. Jag tror jag har skrivit tre kapitel vid det här laget. Awsome! Här kan ni se några exempel på mina kartor jag tecknat och satt ihop bit för bit!

Men där finns faktiskt en jag gillar ännu mer. Skillnaden är att den är gjord helt för hand och således inte hopsatt i datorn. Målet är att hitta någon som kan skanna eller fotografera en såpass stor bild. Så ni får ursäkta om mitt foto blir en aning suddigt.

Det blir en helt annan känsla när den är helt gjord för hand. Jag vet inte varför. Men här är min favorit i alla fall. Vilken är din favorit?

Utöver detta går det trögt med tecknandet. Jag vill göra illustrationer, men har på senare tid insett att jag är för dålig för att illustrera min egen bok. Nu väntar jag bara på att få lite rutiner i mitt liv, få ett jobb och flytta hemifrån. Den tionde augusti blir jag anställd på Masterpack i Kristianstad. Wish me luck! Wohoo!

Här kan ni också få ett litet smakprov på mina mer enkla illustrationer. De är gjorda helt utan blyerts. Det betyder att jag inte har suddat alls. Jag vet att jag har visat upp några av dem tidigare, men det är ju aldrig fel att påminna, eller hur?

Music Cooperation Alert!

For quite some time now, I’ve been working with a project together with a friend. She wants to stay anonymous for a very clear reason, so I will call her Anni-Naomi. She has a blog named Blue Bird the 3rd. She wrote a song a year ago and suggested me to arrange the instrumental part. But different issues came along and we had to put it forward. Now we’re back on track and we will soon suggest a time and place to record the song to an upcoming single.

You should really check her blog out. She writes really good poems and songs and I realised she had potential. But since she has no suitable recording device, nor music program, we decided to work together. And here we are. When we first started to know eachother, her song wasn’t very good, but now she has trained her voice and become a lot lot better. I think I will invite her as guest singer in some of my future projects as well.

At her freetime, she writes novels just like I do. Anni-Naomi needs more followers and support for what she does, so I will link her blog here. So long, guys.

A little poster image

And some other stuff of course. This was quite advanced, but I’m deeply satisfied. Time to make some sketches and drawings and paintings again.

On the 10th of August I will be employed and start to work on a packaging factory. I am so happy for that. Then I will start to search for an apartment.

I don’t know If I’ve told this, but I have a friend that read my manuscript and after her feedback, I’ve decided to re-write the book completely to make it better and more original.

In general, not much is happening now. But I’ve been starting to use my leather books to illustrate. Soon I may be writing some calligraphy in them as well. Here they are.
