Finally! Äntligen! Very proud to share the official Polar Music Prize commissioned docu-animation of its founder, and manager of ABBA, the late great Stig ‘Stikkan’ Anderson. A nostalgic journey through his life featuring stop-motion animation and time-lapse videos of my drawings – sometimes you see my hand, and sometimes you don’t 🙂 It’s MAGIC! Courtesy of Director/Animator @IreneLopez and @lillasysterproduktion. Narration by Polar Music Prize favourite Monte Reid, it of course also features a killer soundtrack!
So after this first ever* official ‘Jenny Soep’ animation, may there be many more! Couldn’t have been a more perfect beginning – to be commissioned by the most prestigious and inspiring music prize in the world – that represents everything I strive for in my own work. Over the moon. Now off to cycle in the sun to Stockholm’s best ‘International Cassette Store Day’ Larry’s Corner with Oma333 and Mother events.

*First ever timelapse drawing/animation video was made for a song called ‘Admission Number Two’ with the help of multi-talented animator/games designer Garry Whitton, an experiment for one of my favourite bands/art collective ‘FOUND‘.
