At the start of the autumn semester 2015, we worked with methods and process. The goal was to test new methods when working with ideas and process, and challenge ourselves to take different and unexpected paths. I worked with drawing through free association, and setting up both controlled and randomized boundaries to pull the process in different directions. It was fun and resulted in a two-sided poster/drawing and some gift cards. At the end of the semester we had a Christmas market at school, where I had printed these among other stuff to sell.
Old and New
I’m in the middle of my second week at Bergen Acadamy of Art and Design. I always enjoy starting on a new sketchbook. There lies so much potential and anticipation in the blank pages – just like starting a new education. So I bought myself a book I really liked (mainly because of the binding). And because it looks nice, I have decided that I want to be more critical of the content that goes in. Not VERY critical though, cause that’s no fun.
Here’s a double page for drawing whimsical characters. Just for fun!
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.
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.
