This blog will present the work with the anthology project called the 'Swedish Comic Sin'.
I started this project to challenge some of my fellow Swedish cartoon artists, and see if they each could deliver one erotic short story for an anthology. 10 artist accepted the challenge, and now the book is on it’s way to the print shop!
The book release is set to Small Press Expo in Stockholm 23rd-26th of April.
Back in the 50’ies, there was a rumour about Sweden being the most sinful place on earth. Movies like Arne Mattssons ‘One Summer of Happiness’ (1950) and Ingmar Bergmans ‘Summer with Monika’ (1953) made the world gasp with their open depiction of the naked body.
As a salute to these brave artist, this is the revive of the Swedish Sin – a comeback in cartoon style.
Drawing erotic porn comics is not exactly a stroll in the park. Making comics is like calling someone on the phone. You, the artist, speak directly to the reader – often reading your story alone. So, making erotic comics is like calling a stranger and start telling him or her a sexy story. The reader can always choose to put away the book, but you still have to tell the whole story, for them who want to read it.
In the following posts, I’ll interview the artists in the book and let you get to know them better. It will be like a great foreplay before the grand finale, the book release in the end of April!
