Vi presenterar stolt vårt senaste samarbete!

By a wild coincidence last year we met a guy named William Cheung, whose brother David Cheung is a very talented artist.

We got to know William, who runs David's website where they sell his art. Here is what David writes about his brother:

"He was born on November 28, 1983 in Slagelse, Denmark to parents from Hong Kong. As a child, he had difficulty with school and could not relate to other children. He was mostly alone in his own little world.

"In adulthood it became difficult to work or study, he did not understand why.

In 2015, he had a mental breakdown and was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, he was 32 years old.

He started using art to express himself and today his art brings joy and inspiration to people.

The motifs in his artwork come from his love of mountains, forests and classical church buildings."

Ahead of this summer's big release, we wanted to do something really cool (which we always try to do though).

We came up with the idea that David would draw historical and iconic buildings and stuff on Gotland. Since David loves to draw buildings and natural landscapes, it was a perfect fit. We spoke to the Cheung brothers, and they were just as ticked off as we were.

The result was these super-stylish illustrations that you can now find on our new patterns. They have been a super hit from day one, not least at our local dealers in Visby.

Cool stuff, cool stuff.
