The first four pages of a (potential) comic book I startet at the comics workshop at school. The first page is the only one I’ve coloured so far. Hopefully I’ll keep working on it. Nevertheless it’s going to take a while.
It’s about a small society of mice, and all the aspects of their lives. This first story follows a young female mouse and how she tries to solve a murder mystery.
There’s actually more text in my sketchbooks than images. I tend to write down ideas, but the past months the doodles and sketches have grown. And I guess a sketchbook gets more interesting that way. Here’s a nibble!
A follow up on the mushroom project I had before Christmas.
I ended up with two editions of this picture, because the pen i drew the first one with wasn’t waterproof (I found out after I was finished). I wanted to use watercolour, so I drew one more. I used ink and dip pen, which gives nice and organic lines. I also got to correct the mistakes I did on the first one. Plus, I had a kozy time with the colouring, joined together with classmates: pizza, beer, music, talking, drawing and watching wierd stuff on youtube. It was a win win situation.
Graphic printmaking. Drypoint on zinc and copper. The first print I made with the mice and tree wasn’t dark enough. I coloured it using watercolours, quite satisfied with the result. Yeah…and I have read Mouse Gard, so I guess I’m inspired by it.
Montage with 10 pictures plus threedimentional objects illustrating different facts about the mushroom, and conveyed through the genre of fairy tales/myth/storytelling. Illustrations for children. My main goal was to experiment with different techniques and materials, looking for a visual style I like and may continue to develop.
Interested in taking a closer look? Einar Granum is open for outsiders tomorrow between 16-18.
Addition to the last post. Two more illustrations from the illustration course.
The first picture is a character based on my own personality…sort of. Acrylics on paper.
The second picture I made for the news article below, which is about vandalism on the “King’s trees” in Oslo. Just for the fun of it, I threw in some references to Game of Thrones. Because I wanted to! Pen, acrylics and photoshop.
