I told you, didn’t I? I’m a lazy blogger.
Anyway, I’ve been scanning originals from the years before I began working from home, that is from 1992 until 2000, more or less. The status is around 8.000 editorial cartoons included illustrations to other columns written by the editorial team, analyses and such. That is a Finnish record, I think. And I’m still counting, because this year isn’t included in that number.
I’ve done more than that, though. Altogether I’ve made 14-15.000 illustrations for Hufvudstadsbladet, everything included, during the 27 years between 1992 and 2019. That adds up to around 500 illustrations annually which equals 45 drawings per month or one and a half per day, seven days a week, all year round, during 27 years.
And that’s only what I’ve done for Hufvudstadsbladet. Aside from that I’ve made a few hundred illustrations, if not thousands, for other publications, books, magazines etc. etc.
Aside from that I’ve painted at least a hundred paintings and some other artworks as well.
And counting, because I’m continuing to draw for Hufvudstadsbladet as long as they want my drawings, or till the pen falls from my dead, cold hands 🙂 And I’m always open for other assignments as well.
But I think I deserve a day off, once in a while.
