We had lots of fun doing this character from the Walt Disney film Aladdin. Always thought that this Jordanian beauty would pull it off splendid. And she did!

A little bit about the model. Nerjes Nana’s mother is from Amman in Jordan and father kurd from Iraq. They met in Sweden and Nerjes was born in Brunflo, Östersund on April 26 in 1997. After her parent’s divorced she moved to the U.S.A at the age of nine and attended school in Bakersfield, CA. After five years she moved to Jordan with her mother. Her mother is an arabic Muslim and always taught her about Islam, but the path of belief and practice was to be of her own choice. Neither Nerjes, her mother or sister wore a hijab. In fact Nerjes states that Jordan is a fairly liberal and a predominantly Muslim country. Some parts of Jordan are even Western and cosmopolitan. However, Jordanians have a deep respect for their King and Islam, and are conservative at the same time as they are liberal. After a few years Nerjes came back to Sweden and settled down in Stockholm and became a certified makeup artist.

This is about the time when I met Nerjes because she was in the same class in school as my daughter Adina. However her mother lived in another part of Sweden, so she stayed with us for longer periods of time. Telling us about her travels in the midle-east. One day we will have to travel with Nerjes to Jordan because through the ongoing troubles and conflicts of the neighbours Egypt and Syria, Jordan still enjoys a stable and peaceful environment to see. Petra, the historical rock-cut architecture and Wadi rum, the impressive red desert landscape and of course the Dead Sea. Just beautiful places and certainly on our To-Do list.

Dark Ages

Jörgen shot these photos of me and my noble knight in the mist of dawn, in the Norra Kvill national park. A small troll-forest in the county of Småland that has been untouched for ages. You can’t see the gnomes and fairies but you can certainly feel their presence here. This virgin forest has not been logged for over 150 years and some of the pines are 350 years old. A rich flora and enormous boulders covered with moss. Perfect environment for some medieval pictures.

All this talk about princesses this week has reminded me of my childhood dreams on the matter. Dressing up like a princess is a passage that lots of young girls go through. I have also had that dream, but it was always different from other girls. I didn’t want to wear a girly-cinderella-pink-fluffy dress. It made me feel a little bit submissive and weak. Nothing wrong with little girls wanting to dress up in cute princess dresses, but I just don’t like the stereotype and discrimination against girls and women, physically helpless on assumption that women are suppose to be that way. I would  always return to the stronger characters in my Tarzan comic strips. The princesses of the amazons. I was enchanted by them. Independent and strong princesses, both physically and mentally, plus they have all the allure of good beautiful women. Amazons or women from the mythological or fantasy literature, as well as our real world. I am talking about girls like Wonder woman, Pippi Longstocking and especially my daughters. They all deserve a tiara made of cameos, gold and pearls.

These past weeks have been all about princesses. Thanks to Princess Victoria’s wedding, of course. To my foreign readers I’d like to explain that Victoria is our King, Carl Gustaf’s daughter and the next queen of Sweden. On saturday she tied the knot with her gym teacher Daniel Westling. I am certainly not a royalist, but I am not against it either… I am indifferent. I simply don’t give a damn. But, of course, I sometimes wonder what the real value of the Royals is? What do they bring the nation today? Tourism, identity, international relations? We fund a lavishing lifestyle for a few people who spend it on stupid things. They are multi-millionaires so it’s not like they need our money. Furthermore I don’t like how the regent is decided by blood and not by democratic means. It really goes against everything this country stands for, in my opinion. But on the other hand I like the royal tradition that has been around for 100’s and 100’s of years.  I say…. keep the royal family, the castle and what ever they have. Good for PR, but cut a big part of their royal allowance.

So, did I watch the wedding on TV? Of course I did, and it was beautiful. Victoria looked astonishing. Oh… that’s right, I don´t give a damn ; )

The movie Prince of Persia – The sands of time, is also a story about a guy that, like Daniel Westling, was picked up off the streets and became a prince. The movie is directed by Mike Newell and is starring Jake Gyllenhaal as prince Dastan in the lead role. Gemma Artenton as the lovely Princess Tamina. I just saw the movie and I liked it… Good old-fashioned, action-adventure film.
