Book illustrations

One of my current projects is to illustrate Leif Häggström’s pioneer book about prehistoric hunting in Sweden. Leif is a hunter and archaeologist living in Fotskäl, SW Sweden. Above is one of the illustrations: a mesolithic archer inspired by one of the Skateholm graves in the very south of Sweden.

It is very inspiring to write a book together with Måns, he is a most talented and skillfull artist. I think the text and the paintings in the book work excellent together. Hopefully it will attract persons interested in history and archaeology along persons interested or involved in hunting.

When will the book be ready?

Once we have found a publisher it will probably be published within a couple of years. You never know about books.
