I totally forgot to announce the contest winner! One would think I would keep track of these things better now that I am on vacation, but nope. In my defense I have not been home much, been seeing family and friends a lot. So it’s not been all comic-work-related days :)

The winner of the June 2015 Contest is:

Jonathan Blund

who was the only one who got the correct number of symbols! Skillful voting job, Jonathan! I’m happy he won the contest because I’d say he’s one of my most supportive readers. He even read the comic before I put it on hiatus to redraw Chapter 1. It’s so flattering getting in touch with readers who’s been following the comic for so long!

Thanks for voting, Jonathan! You will receive a package with The Din-related goods. :)
Hello everyone! The contest is over now! Don't forget to send in your results!

The Din – June 2015 Contest

The deadline for sending in the number is the 2nd of July 24:00 EST

If you missed a few days, don't worry. Send in your result anyway! Who knows? Maybe you're not the only one who missed a few days!

I'd like to thank everyone who participated! It's been a great month and The Din received more votes than usual. :) Thank you so much! I think The Din was at top 117 at best, which is a new record! Means a lot to me that you all have been going through this extra effort of voting regularly!

I will try to update the vote incentive images more often, because I realize it's much more fun to vote then. Let me know what kind of vote incentives you like and I'll do my best!
Anyway, in a few days I'll replace the current vote incentive with a print I made this spring. It's probably going to be the vote incentive until I find time to upload a buffer of vote incentive images. :)

Oh, and the contest winner/winners will be announced next week! Stay tuned!

I'm happy to announce that The Din has become an affiliate of Hiveworks! This is really exciting news and I am so honored to be among these great storytellers and artists. Thank you everyone involved for giving me this opportunity!

So what does this mean for The Din? As a reader you won't experience much of a difference! The webpage will change a bit in a while, there will be new slots for ads and a slight change of the layout (for the better!). The updates will still be weekly or twice a week if I have more pages than my buffer goal. :)

If you got a minute, take time to read about Hiveworks and the great webcomics there! I'm sure some of you already read some of them, but there are a lot to discover!

The prize


A physical copy of The Din Chapter 1 + sketch.


This is a 96 pages long album in full color. I only print these in limited editions. It contains the Prologue and Chapter 1.

How to participate


The contest runs from the 1st of June to the 30th of June. I have uploaded 30 incentive images to be shown once a day throughout the month of June over at topwebcomics.com. In a number of these vote incentive images, I have included this symbol:

In order to see these vote incentive images,  you need to vote for The Din over at Top Web Comics. You vote by clicking on the vote-image on the right side-bar or click here. If you are not a member, you will be asked to confirm your vote before you are sent to the vote incentive image.


Make a note every time you see this symbol. At the end of the month, count the total number of symbols you found and send the number to me at:

The Din - June 2015 Contest


The deadline for sending in the number is the 2nd of July 24:00 EST


The one who has the correct total number of symbols, or closest to the correct total number of symbols, will get The Din Chapter 1 + a sketch of any The Din related character shipped to them as soon as I have their address. :)


To increase your chances of winning, you need to vote as often as possible. Preferably once a day since there will be a new image every day. This is what a vote incentive image with a symbol might look like:


EXAMPLEDo not count this one! It's just an example!


What happens if more than 1 person gets the right number?


I will collect the names and let a random generator pick one winner. If more than 4 people get the right number I will let a random generator pick two winners etc.


Can the symbol appear more than once in one picture?


No, the symbol can only appear once in one picture. Some images might have a similar symbol in the drawing, but it's the clean black symbol inside the red circle that counts. It will be very clear when you see it!


I don't want to give you my address, can I participate anyway?


Absolutely! If you win I'll give you a PDF of the album + a digital sketch instead!


The vote incentive images


All the images are related to The Din. It's a mix of new doodles and old art from before I started drawing the comic. I tried to find images that haven't been posted anywhere before, but old time readers might recognize some of these!


That's about it! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!


Best of luck to all of you, and thanks for participating! Every vote helps The Din to reach new readers and grow as a webcomic! <3

Going to the Stockholm International Comic Festival at Kulturhuset this weekend? Then this is where you'll find me and my comic The Din (F37)!

I'll bring the prologue and the first chapter of the webcomic The Din - a book of approx. 100 pages.

This time it's in full color and 10+ extra pages compared to last year's black/white edidion. Will also bring some prints and old fanzines!


Stop by and hang out in my corner!

I got my first proof copy the other week! Man am I excited! The colors, the sharpness and the paper quality is amazing. Feels much thicker than the black/white version I printed last year.

Excuse the photo quality - I'll take more photos when my next proof copy or when the whole batch arrives. :)

Finally got around to make a flat colored version of the Animated transition-page of the prologue. It's not as fancy as any other colored page, but it's in color! :)

I had to reduce the frame rate by half, again, to make the size reasonable. It's still double the size as the black/white one. Let me know if it makes a laggy/stuttery reading experience.

Next transition page, I'll make sure to not use such an ambient movement. Only few, effective frames!

I got a really nice fan art from my friend E.U. , the artist behind Bits Fair, the other day and I really want to show it here on the blog!

Gregg Living The Pinecone Life

Totally awesome and so accurate. He could totally build a whole factory of pine cone airplanes with this kind of life! His future is suddenly very clear to me.

If you haven’t already, you should totally look into Bits Fair! It’s a really nice webcomic in a lovely, original style and setting. First time I read it, my first impression was that it’s a very beautifully crafted homage to battle Shounen-comics, but with a unique take on it; style- and storytelling wise. You think you know what’s going to happen because of the comics you read when you grew up, but are always surprised. Super nice to read on your phone and tablet too, since it’s scroll friendly. Go read it on tapastic or the website! :3

Also, I need to figure out if there is a hidden message of critique in this fan art, since we joked about combining critique into a fan art over at twitter a while ago. How will I ever know? She mentions there is none, but that could hint that there is one. Right? Time to trace all of those dots in the texture to see if there is a message!
