Meet me at Stockholm’s international comic book festival!
So! Stockholms internationella seriefestival, Stockholm’s international comic book festival, is coming up this weekend! I will be in Stockholm at Kulturhuset among with lots of talented artists and sell stuff. Don’t be as shy as I tend to be - say hi! :D
Stockholm, T-centralen, Kulturhuset, 3rd floor. Saturday and Sunday, 11 AM to 6 PM.
The books (all of them are in Swedish) I have prepared for the festival are:
”ÅROR”: 84 A4 pages, black/white, 260 KR
The name of the comic, “Åror”, means “oars” in Swedish and refers to part of the story’s essence. “Åror” is about a meeting between two teens of different personalities, looks and social situations - but with one important thing in common, which pulls them together much tighter than they first expected. Their relationship that started out as shallow as most simple acquaintanceships do swiftly escalates into something darker, rawer, and incredibly important.
Åror is the project I worked with for about a year. I brought the drawing pad that I kept the comic in with me at all times. Scrutinising myself and people around me along with the comic’s development made it an interesting journey creating the story.
”EGEN”: 60 A5 pages, full colour, 160 KR
Egen is a book which collects my one shot-comics as well as my short ones. Some are humorous, some are serious - most of them are a little bit of both. You will recognize many of them from this blog, but there are plenty which I have never published neither here nor any other place on the internet, including a very personal one.
I also made some small zines:
”HÅLLA HAND”: 8 A5 pages, black/white, 20 KR
A short story which deals with the fear of being out as queer which is (sadly enough) based on a true story.
”PK-MAFFIAN”: 8 A6 pages, full colour, 20 KR
A short comic about casual oppression in Sweden, made into a neat little mini-zine!
Soooo… hurry up and get your grabby hands on my stuff if you want it, especially my books, since there’s not an infinite amount of copies available! If I get any left I will sell them to whoever’s interested.
And oh, I might do some more small last-minute zines and prints, because I finally got my printer working! Might do some live sketch commissions as well! See ya! UvU~
Not that many of my followers are in sweden right now, but this is a pretty big event for me and my buddies. So IF you by some miraculous reason happen to be in Stockholm this weekend then look out for us!
This is what I’m going to sell:
“FOERVRAENGD - The art of Mirjam Löfgren”, A4, full color 200 kr
My very first artbook! It’s a collection of my best works I’ve done 2011-2013!
“Understanding Anatomy part 1 & 2” - A5, B/W, 100kr separately -170 kr for both!
These are my online tutorials in printed format - but it also has improved illustrations, more information and some bonus content that I never published in the online versions!
“Krig RAWR chapter 1 & 2” - A5, full color. 70kr each - 120kr for both!
The printed version of my webcomic Krig RAWR, do you like dinosaurs? Do you like dinosaurs fighting for their lives in a world of war? Then this comic is for you!
I will also do some live commissions at the festival! For just 50 kr I’ll draw you as a dinosaur of your own choice!
