The first Crumelurs appeared in a hotel room in Stockholm in Feburay 2019, when I was drawing while talking on the phone as I usually do, i.e., phone doodling. I had bought some new pens and was playing around and ended up with a full-color drawing. I was very surprised, and since then, Crumelurs keep appearing as soon as I sit down to draw. I never know what will happen, who will show up in what surroundings. Actually, they draw themselves, and my part is to hold the pens.
I use a fine liner to draw them and alcohol-based markers for coloring. Sizes of drawings are primarily A3, and occasionally I do A4 and A2. It has turned out to be a kind of meditation, and that puts me into a flow. I’ve always used various methods and tools within the arts to express myself, e.g., ceramics, acrylic -and oil painting, coal, and various pencils for drawing. As a Crumeleur, I’m the entrepreneur taking the Crumelurs to the world, making people smiling and feeling good.
More about me
Another artistic side of mine is that I’m a writer, blogger, and author. I’m for now based in Sweden, and working off- and online. I wrote the first Swedish book on the digital working life. My latest book is “I’m a Cebra on the digitized Savanna – are you? How to succeed in the digitized working life”. The writing and blogging have so far primarily been about topics in areas of my working life. The writing skills are what I use as a Communicator.
So the day-to-day work has varied quite a bit, since I also used to work as a Consultant, in mentoring, connecting, and investing in people and businesses. In short, I was inpowering people and businesses within the southern Sweden tech startup/ scaleup ecosystem, as well as in Europe, to flourish. My particular area of interest was tech and its cross-innovation with creative industries, and how that has changed the business life. The emerging blockchain technology, as well as AI and VR, I’m following with great interest. And I’ve done it mostly from the perspective of: What impact will this have on humans, our private and working life in the ongoing transformation of the societies? You may also have met me from time to time as a speaker, workshop leader and panels.
The Crumelurs have taken over and I’m now focusing on taking them to the world. The Crumelurs keep me living here and now, reminding me that the meaning of life is to enjoy it every day, in your ways and means. And of course, though without harming anyone.
