My day jobs

Since somewhere around October 2006, I’ve been freelancing in lettering and graphics, usually related to comic books. Before that I absolved the two semester course in Publishing and Book Market Studies at Lund University, and interned at avant-verlag for two months.

Lettering

I letter comics mainly digitally. I also construct custom fonts from handwriting. Here is one based on my own, and here are fonts based on the handwriting of other comic artists. A small selection of the many books I’ve lettered:
