What is your name and how would you shortly describe what you're doing?
My name is Stina Lövkvist and I belong to a seemingly declining crowd of artists who likes to create pictures with traditional techniques. Teeming, colourful and imaginative watercolour illustrations are my prime number, but being as exemplary modern that I am I also master Photoshop and digital painting like it was my own tooth brush.
Where can I see your pictures?
In the children's magazine KP since 12 years back. In the book series Kamtopparnas Mysterier and Cirkusdeckarna, and a dozen other books. In the buisness magazine Socionomen. In Träna Läsförståelse, a series of text books for school kids. In self published comic books. On the wall in homes of happy customers. I have long experience and have tried a little bit of everything.
What signifies your working desk?
A grand oil painting, depicting a "Skvader" (fable cross between a hare and a capercaillie) that never gets finished and takes up a lot of space. A heck load of stuff that could've used their own very place. A stack of pencils, brushes, erasers, paints and other essentials. A filthy Laptop. Five generations of empty coffee mugs.
