My last sense of Sweden

Hello, guys! It is my last night in Sweden and I just cannot sleep. Tomorrow I'll be leaving for Moscow and at 5 pm I'll already be there. Today's day was crazy: I was doing my last shopping spree in Malmo. I had to visit every store again and again to be sure I haven't missed anything. At last my wish was to look for some T'shirts in Topshop, but it was too late and the store was already closed. So I only got my arms cold and experienced a crazy ride on a bike through the dark Lund streets.

To add today I was doing some photoshoots in Malmo for my Voronezh newspaper and got a pretty nice picture of a very stylish look. I wish I was from sweden to be the same self conscious about being dressed in whatever I want.

Paris fails

I used to talk about Paris Hilton as a fashion star, vogue giver and just a well dressed woman. But after starting scrutinizing her latest snapshots, I totally changed my suggestions.

What happened to poor thing Paris? Maybe she got under her rock star boyfriend's influnce.

The exact point I only know now is that I do not going to continue following her fashion look any longer. Otherwise I risk to become one of those people we are calling "style chawbacons".

She was born in Sweden, worked in Brazil and is now settled in the Portland area. The prolific illustrator and mixed-media artist Linn Olofsdotter is a global citizen of the most interesting kind. Her own life indifferent locales gives her many sources of inspiration and most likely helps her flex her illustration muscle to meet the needs of a vast variety of clients.

Her work has appeared in Computer Arts and Bon Magazine; she’s created T-shirt graphics for Levi’s, wall murals for a hotel in Los Angeles, CD covers for artists and illustrations for Oilily and La Perla. Nearly all of her work has a collage-like feel, with many layers, nuances and media. The some what surreal and psychedelic look of some of her pieces attests to her ability and willingness to trot not just the globe but regions beyond.
