Week of piggies: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and all eternity

Tomorrow I’m going to Rügen for almost a week, where I will not have Internet access at all!
So I’ll have to post the rest of the piggies for the piggy week already now … ;_;

The Soviet tank soldier piggies (one of them with thalidomide deformities?) are of course inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s comics about Otto Carius and Hans

Oh, and then I found this sketch somewhere in my computer:

I think it might be related to my comic Pigs Have Wings. Or maybe not, because the girl doesn’t look like Ebba. Or maybe that’s the reason why it stayed just a sketch.



Many people assume that I’ve been inspired by rape-revenge movies in my comics about Eva. As a matter of fact I had hardly seen any such films when I drew these comics.

But some of them seem like good fun, so I looked a bit closer at the genre in an article for the new blog of my publisher Epix. Read it here (in Swedish)

Screencap from the film Thriller – A Cruel Picture, at which I take a closer look in the article.


In Swedish at allehanda.se: “Stenhård hora som seriehjältinna”

It says that “after a while you start to see that Tinet Elmgren is challenging conventions when she makes a whore into a heroine and thrashes on so much violence. She is a kind of Tarantino in comics form.”

Whee, that’s really flattering.
