"I work in Gimp, a free photo editing program very similar to Photoshop. The first thing I do is duplicate my layer and change the new one to soft light mode, then I work on its transparency level. I try to not over do it, so I start with it on 100% transparency, so that the changes are invisible, and then I gradually decrease transparency until I’m happy with the result. This gives me a more controlled, less hard contrast tool." Read more on the blog.

"This summer has been different, not for the weather, but because I've had it hard to get inspired and to work on my blogging, I felt quieter and less social too... Somehow the idea of moving back to Spain to be close to my family and friends had been lingering in my head since New Year, and a couple of weeks ago I just got that feeling.... I got to go!"

"Soooo… Whiskey Monday. I’ve known your work for awhile and it hits so close to home – the honesty in your images, subjects and how you end up blurring the line between second and first lives have a lot to do with it. When I asked earlier today if you’d be down to answer a couple of questions I was still debating which approach should be taken on this interview because there is literally so much I want to ask, so I’ll try my best to narrow them down."

"There are times when I sit and stare at a blank screen. The small little blinking line taunts me to move it across the page. Sometimes it is because I can’t seem to think of something to say. Then other times, I have so many different ideas floating around my head, I am overwhelmed." Read more on the blog.

"STÖMOL was released on 23 July 2020 in a private inworld premiere, with the Linden public showing taking place the next day – one year ago exactly. How to celebrate this? I don’t think we’re at the Director’s Commentary edition just yet; to tide you over until the moment that becomes something that doesn’t cause eyes to roll (I reckon the five year anniversary for that), I’m releasing today publicly a few scenes that never made it into the final movie (yes, these have been previously available, but only if you did Complicated Things With Secret Hidden Stuff)."
