In 1854, 26-year-old Jonas Falk was sentenced to death by beheading for robbery and murder.
The sentence was carried out in 1855 in the forest area of Svedmon in the Västergötland province. His body was buried on site, as criminals were not allowed burial in a cemetery according to the custom of the time.
A cross with the words "FALK - 1855" still exists today, not far from the execution site. The headless ghost of young Falk is said to appear from time to time, and the grave always has fresh flowers.
My art is a blend of both traditional and digital media. I love to draw in pencil and/or ink, and then color digitally, while trying to maintain a traditional feel. Sometimes I work fully digital if the project requires more flexibility in terms of image manipulation.
I’ve always been fascinated and inspired by the strongly narrative, densely detailed and yet delicate works by old masters such as Rackham, Rockwell, Doré, Bauer, Larsson, Clarke and Rossetti, just to name a few.
