Today it’s one year since Kristiina Kolehmainen passed away. I honor her with one of the very last photos I took of her. We were at an official ceremony in Angouleme 2012, where Art Spiegelman was given a prestigious French medal. Kristiina was characteristically unimpressed and sat in a corner chatting away with friend and great artist José Munoz instead. They looked and sounded like an old couple and I remember leaving all the reporters struggling to take photos of Spiegelman to walk over to their corner and take a few photos of them instead. Kristiina was always happiest when meeting up with her friends in the international artist community, and in this beautiful moment, she apparently forgot about her illness, which otherwise plagued her a lot on this her last trip to Angouleme.

More interesting comics in old Swedish weeklies, this one from 1947. Beauful colouring! Anyone know where “Atommannen” (The Atom-man) comes from?

Just found an ad using comics to promote Mazetti cocoa, in a magazine from 1934. Kind of fun, as today, the old Mazetti factory building contains The Comic Art Centre…

Sunday comics. Relaxing in the sofa, me surfing with my trusted iPhone, my son opposite with a Donald Duck book. I think he has the best deal… Oh, and listening to the music from the film The Hobbit. Sunday bliss!
