The Swedish Flag

Heritage and culture are important. As many of you may know, I'm Swedish-American. What you might not know is that I'm actually a true Swedish-American. I hold both citizenships. Both countries are important to me.

The other day at school, our younger son (who's really not that little anymore, he's in middle school) tried to make a graph look like the Swedish flag. When he told the teacher, she said it wasn't a flag at all, just a cross... Yeah, as you may have guessed (being that I have the subtlety of a sledge hammer), I wrote the teacher soon as I found out. 

It turned out that she didn't know how the Swedish flag looked like at all. Still, if a student claims it is a certain flag (and obviously are very determined that they are correct), just be like oh okay, that's cool. Admit that you don't know and perhaps /GASP look it up! How hard is that?

In the Studio

I'm working on concept sketches for the new series... I don't have any pictures to show of it right now, because I am going to have a lot of rough sketches which I then need to combine to other concept sketches....
