Ya estas demasiado viejo para eso

Cuando tenía 19 años mi sueño era trabajar para Disney en el EPCOT Center. Hice la solicitud, escribí, según yo, la mejor carta de motivación y prendí muchas veladoras para que me aceptaran. No me aceptaron. Estuve triste por unos días pero luego se me olvidó. Como la vida es muy chistosa, a los 24 volví a aplicar y me dieron el trabajo. Prometo un día contarles cómo sucedió eso. A los… Read more »

Ramen Bowls

Escribo este post desde una casita roja sueca. En los últimos meses mi vida ha cambiado mucho. Renuncié a mi trabajo. Vendí, regalé y doné casi todas mis cosas, salvo por los libros que guardé en casa de mis padres y lo que pude traerme en una maleta de 22 kilos. Tobbe, Lasse y El Vikingo están conmigo en esta nueva aventura. Hace dos meses que llegué a este país que me… Read more »

Flower Vase

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep” — Scott Adams Currently I’m experimenting with shapes and glazes. Sometimes the results are awesome (or at least awesome to me), like this vase. Other times the results are less than awesome, but at least they teach me something. Anyway, I’m still learning and trying to understand the complicated world of ceramics. And surprisingly, unlike so many other… Read more »

Vegan Matcha green tea latte

But, with the rain comes cloudy thoughts and a darker mood, so I find myself needing a extra energy boost. My current antidepressant-cheer-me-up-and-make-everything-great favorite drink is a lovely matcha green tea latte. I’d normally get it from Starbucks, but going there every time I’m in need would cost me a… Read more »

Carte Postale

(Rough translation) A year ago I bought a bunch of french postcards at Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen and then completely forgot about them. I wanted to post them on the blog with translations but they are a pain to read. I’ll see if I can find someone to help me, but for now I though I’d share this one with you. It’s fun to imagine who this Georgette was… Read more »

The Closet Voyeur Sneak Peek

Like I promised last year I’m relaunching the The Closet Voyeur. This is a sneak peek of Luis’s and Angel’s house. Luis is an industrial designer and Angel is a journalist, and they both have exceptional taste. For this picture I asked them to pick some of their favorite things from their house. Each object has a story, so please mouse over the object to learn more about it. Cool, right? The full closet… Read more »

From calendar to frame

One of my best tips for getting new prints to frame, is to buy a calendar. I’ll use it as a calendar during the year, but when the year’s over, I select the best images, cut them out, and frame them. It’s cheap and you recycle. That’s what I did with this chat noir. So think again before you spend money on an expensive print — you might get twelve for less.
