Hold your tongue

Hold your tongue

I've often read that the ancient Greeks didn't have purses and carried coins in their mouths. There isn't a whole lot of proof of this though.

Happy Friendly Animals

Happy Friendly Animals

For some reason more and more moose from Sweden have started swimming across the sea to Denmark, and from the other end wolves from Germany have started crossing the border.

Thanks to my twitter followers for this one. :)

So close yet so far

Most Danes are really bad at telling Norwegian and Swedish apart.

Case in point, I was watching Twin Peaks with a friend who complained about the terrible Swedish some of the characters were talking, and then it turned out they were Norwegian.

There's no story behind this one. I just felt like drawing a slice of life comic about the assholery the Nordic characters subject each other to.

One bird in the hand

One bird in the hand

My Faroese housemate was telling me about her country's local birds, and that was when I realized what stupid names we've been giving said birds here in Denmark.

Auroras can be quite serious business up here in the north, especially because some have more than others.

New Year 2014-2015

New Year 2014-2015

Happy New Year everyone! May the next 12 months (and the rest of your life) be filled with all the things you don't necessarily want but are good for you!

In Denmark it's a tradition to jump from a chair (or anything really) right before midnight so that you set off in the old year and land on the ground in the new year for good luck.

When this was first explained to me as a child, I though it meant you could jump whenever and skip ahead to New Year if only you knew the right way to do it.

Christmas Kitten

Christmas Kitten

You get an early Christmas comic this year because I'm leaving for the holidays and won't get much internet time.

This creature is also known as the Yule Cat, but I thought Christmas Cat sounded funnier.
