Stockholm: day 4 + 5
But seriously, check out that beer in that birds hand?
Pizza served uncut, eaten with knife & fork, always.
My old friend Sven who I know from Minneapolis in the late 9o's took me to his work space & shop where he does pin stripping, sign painting and design work. He is also the president of the Stockholm chapter of the Black Label Bike Club.
I was in Sweden to lecture about DIY craft and activism to members of the Swedish Craft Council and industry folk at the Modern Art Museum in Stockholm. I learned about what I found to be the very confusing Sloyd and it's importance within Swedish heritage.
The fantastic Dr. Otto Von Busch who spoke before me at the conference

On very little sleep I parted ways with Sweden to arrive home in time for my 33rd birthday.
