Hello, and welcome to my new blog, “Inked In Hell”!

For several years I’ve been running this website (Tomte.org) where I’ve been showcasing my work. I’ve had several blogs during the years…and the last one ended up being more or less a photo blog. Not quite sure why it ended up that way, but I’ve wanted to start a more personal blog for a while now, with more in-depth posts about what I’m working on and what’s going on in my life. There’s a lot to tell, I can promise you that! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve been working on this blog for a few days now, and decided to use the same theme and layout as my previous blog (which has now been converted into just a photo blog). I first struggled a bit with deciding what kind of name I wanted. Some ideas were “Heads Are Gonna Roll” (as you probably have seen already, I’ve had a habit of drawing people getting their heads chopped off, specifically gothic/punk women chopping men’s heads off, and there’s also another reason I love this title which I will explain sometime laterย ๐Ÿ˜ ), and things like “Tomte’s Mansion” came to mind, but was quickly discarded as being a bit too…well, dull. Another title I had in mind was “Black Ink & Nightmares”, but decided to go for “Inked In Hell”. Since I work mainly in the horror & punk/gothic genre, and often draw devilish pinups, monsters, ghosts and all kinds of hellish creatures, I found this title to be quite fitting.

I also worked on multiple headers. Below are two I decided to not use, and instead I chose a simple one with just text instead. There will be enough graphics in this blog to come anyway!

Thanks for looking around, please stay tuned if you want to see more ๐Ÿ™‚
