The Sweden-based illustrator talks about what gets her going.
1 What gets you out of bed in the mornings?
I’m not much for breakfast, but the coffee I make after breakfast is the highlight of the day.
2 What gets you to sleep?
Watching a series like BigLittleLies or the scary but brilliant Gomorra.
3 One music track that you listen to, at work.
I listen to a lot to hip-hop, Latin and African like A’won Boyz’s Azonto. Dance beats keep me going…
4 Your favourite pets.
Lubbe, one of our two chow chows we had when I was kid, had a nice personality. You can’t train these stubborn dogs, but that’s the charm with chows.
5 A natural element that inspires you.
Peaceful mountains inspire me the most. I’d like to think that love and togetherness come with peace automatically.
6 Fondest childhood memory.
I was in heaven when I was six years old and got my first orange Crescent bike!
7 A style that you hate and never want to see again…
Not too crazy about the ’80s style; I’ve been there, done that.
8 Your last meal on earth would be…
Swedish fresh scrimps with Hellmann’s mayonnaise, lemon and a glass of cold white wine.
9 Name one movie that you have watched more than once, and why?
TheHangover (1). I don’t know why I think it’s so funny, when it’s actually about some pretty miserable guys…
10 What’s the last picture you took with your mobile device?
My bottle of Absolut World, which I recently designed for the vodka brand.
