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.
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 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.
