Here is the “family” photo from this year Jubilee dinner with Your Majesty at the Castle On The Hudson. Everyone is wearing a wig (tradition), and everyone is looking fabulous! This was an amazing night and if you click on the photo, or here, you can see some parts of it….
Graduation week has started in Karlskrona, and many of my classmates are back there. Today we all presented our learnings, and what we have done during these 7 months. Since Nina, Theo, Henrik, Alexander, John, and I are still in New York, we made a movie with our answers. Above is a screengrab from my interview, and the whole movie will be public shortly.
Here is another image from our Graduation party at Hyper Island NYC. DM11KNA, DM11STO, and IAD11STO….you can tell we are happy!
We had a pre-graduation party on Friday and it was awesome. Nina, Vanessa, and I had arranged with Nyper Island NYC so we could all gather there for some mingle, drinks and we also had a surprise for the other students. We made stars (as we have seen from the previous Karlskrona graduations), and everyone shared their best memory and what their plans are for the future, and then they got their star. We continued the night at White Slab together with YM and friends. We also went to one fifty one…and to Pianos. Yes it was a long night, and everyone had so much fun.
We got Memorial Day off from work, so Nina, Theo, Henrik, John and I went to Coney Island for the day. 31C and felt like 35C, a lot of people, and great times. In the afternoon we also got some footage for our Hyper Island Internship Presentation video.
I just emailed ASF to get a confirmation that they received my papers and documents, and the response I got was “yes, I received the email but I haven’t looked through the papers yet“. Hmm, I know my deadline was the 20th, and that isn’t the same date as for them to send it to the next person. But this makes me a little worried. What if something isn’t right, do I still have time to change it then???
It’s the 18th of May and we just sent all my papers to ASF. It feels really good to have two days until deadline, wich will give them, and me, time if something needs changes.
Below is a list of what ASF need from me and Your Majesty so that we can extend my J-1 visa:
• written explanation of why I need this extension
• Training/Internship Placement Plan, DS-7002
• verification that my insurance is paid
• letter of endorsement from Hyper Island
• payment of the ASF program fee
Deadline: May 20th
I talked to James and Jens today about my work so far at Your Majesty. I’m so happy I made the transfer, and I really love designing. I only got good feedback from both of them and we all want me to stay. So tomorrow I’m gonna email ASF and ask what they need from us so they can extend my J-1 visa to November.
I’m featured on the Your Majesty website together with Tobias and Simon.
Buck created the opening titles of the F5 Festival together with Antfood and it goes in the theme of hand-sewn puppets, painted geometry, and full body spandex. It is really nice, and if you want to see the whole clip CLICK HERE. Above is the rated R Puppet Outtakes.

Third day at Your Majesty and I’m loving it. I got right into a project my first day and with three internal reviews we delivered some pieces to the client today. It feels really good to design, and I’m happy I took this opportunity. Thank you James and Jens.
