Små grå

I started to make these small pencil drawings during the fanzine week. I had a really good time drawing them and I found myself in a flow, completely in my own bubble. I just starting without a plan, except staying within a forest, nature -mystical kind of genre. I printet and bound two editions that I gave away for christmas.

 

Visual identity

Before christmas we had a course at school where we worked with visual identity. It started as a visual identity for a made up publishing house, but in many ways it became a start of discovering a visual identity I can develop further for my own work. I made a small booklet that showed the process and ideas. I made bookmarks with magnets, and also tried bookbinding for the first time.

D-I-Y

Two week D-I-Y, autumn 2015

PART 1: Illustrating a norwegian folk tale through photos

PART 2: Playing with the use of objects, staging of objects and a personal system of symbols. In many ways inspired by still life and surrealism. I am not sure if the pictures illustrate the poems, the poems illustrate the pictures, or that the pictures are a sort of continuation of the poems? Anyways the poems are written by me mainly through the method of automatic writing, as some surrealist sometimes used themselves.

Recently submitted this t-shirt design on Threadless. It did not win, but I thought it went quite well for my second submission. Anyways, it was fun to draw (Digital: PhotoshopCS5/Intuos4), while I listening to Sherlock Holmes on audio book. Pluss, I sold one print when I had this Art Market in my hometown two weeks back. Yay!

The Forest Mouse

And now my watch is ended…

…at Einar Granum School of Art. Thanks to all the wonderful students and teachers for two great years! When autumn comes I’ll take my stuff and move to Bergen. It’s time for a new chapter  of my life: Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

Semester assignment 2014

Last week:

Ipad workshop at school. We got introduced to drawing programmes such as Brushes, Art Rage and Procreation, and also Bamboo Paper. Bamboo Paper works nice as a sketchbook, and I liked Procreation for more advanced drawing (even though I haven’t reached the advanced part).

The first picture is part of my room. We were given the task to draw/”paint” in the dark to capture light an shadow, which you can’t do in the same way when painting on a canvas(or similar), because you need light.  The second picture is a sketch for an idea I’m working on for my application to art schools.

All in all i think Ipad seems like a fine tool for an artist. When I’m rich I’ll buy one! Probably I’ll buy an Ipad before I’ll buy a smartphone.

My semester assignment. Finished today!

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.
