Welcome to d-Pixie’s portfolio page. Here you will find links and summaries on Jonas Schubert Erlandsson’s professional life, and some personal information.
In this day and age on the internet it’s easy to collect any number of personal and professional profiles, you can find links to the most relevant of them in the sidebar. There is also a collection of some, not too many but just enough, samples of previous works for your perusing, enjoy!

A large collection of vintage computers have recently accumulated on the premises. The venerable C64 together with some basic electronics tools, the standard array of Arduinos, Raspberries and other assorted gizmos is the jumping off point into some hardware explorations.

One can be a nerd of many things and another area that is growing to become something of an obsession is good coffee. They are already on the second, good quality coffee grinder - working through many kilos of interesting beans every month.
