Ok, now it's getting close, Almost finished just some minor fine tuning :) And then the big questions what colors to actually use? I rather like there but I might change them after trying some other combinations. And now on to the other 2 illustrations in the same series.

The first snow came today, or well the first snow fall came a few weeks ago but it melted away in minutes but now it seems to be here to stay, and it's getting colder outside by each day that passes. I been picking up work on a illustration I should have finished a long long time ago. But there's always other stuff in the way :( But now we are getting somewhere :)
Later at night Maria came home from a Halloween party dressed as a zombie haha kind of scary :)

Man I just got back from a trip to Stockholm. I went to see one of my favorite oldschool bands growing up; Gorilla Biscuits reunion tour, the show was so awsome. I wish all shows where like this. Constant stage dives, singalongs, arms in the air and people filled with joy.
Here are 2 pictures ok my camera is more or less dead by now and I can't almost use it no more it just keeps giving me errors and I had this great video of new direction on it but it wont work. So I guess I should really get a new one soon :) anyway here are 2 pics from the show.
And when I got back home today I found this huge jar of cloudberry jam my parents left me on their way past umeå, this gotta be the biggest jar of cloudberries ever :) But it's the best jam ever so it's gonna be a great autumn haha :)

Ok it's been a long time now with no updates so I thought I would put an end to that :)
Anyway been working on some commerscials together with popcore film that should be aring in norway anyday now I guess, and a HP project at north kingdom that just finished aswell. And I have a whole bunch of personal projects I'm working on but they have been pushed aside for to long now hopefully I will have more time for them the coming months. Animations, illustrations, tshirt prints you name it :)
Any way here are some sketches / comps of a few things I've been working on:
This first one is a owl illustration I'm working on but it's far from complete, I think I will make it into a tshirt print if I get the end result I was looking for. Been really fascinated with owls in a long time now it's about time I did someting with that :)
A portrait of a burglar this is just a rough first look of it, I haven't decided on colors or number of colors or anything like that yet and I'm gonna give him more of a body aswell and some other details. This will probably end up as a tshirt print as well when finished.
And here are a few previews of what I'm working on for upcoming artwork for Soldier one. a lot of abstract planarity explosions and stuff like that, I'm gonna do some animated sequences of that as well I think it will look really cool. The last one is a tribute of the first angel in Neon genesis evangelion, one of the best mecha anime series, I hope weta will start working on the live action adaptation of that for real soon.

Got my order from the Astropitch today.
The latest Subtle 12" on red vinyl. A Themselves tee, and Doseones latest cd "soft skulls" that consists of him reading poems from the forthcoming subtle, themselves, and 13&god records and a few classic poems and a few other things :)
Great stuff anyway, Doseone is by far my favorite poet very inspiring and strange stuff :) I hope he will make a sequel to his book "the pelt" one day, not to far from now.
"the photophobic poet has onehundred dollars to his name
and must go see both the dentist and the therapist.
and both does he desperately need"
/ doseone - the pelt
There will be no ape with a fire for a face
singing a word like fate while banging a fork on a plate
no gates no stakes no plants that are fake…
just the simple tetrahedron and it's vagina of states.
did you really think that hydrogen was made to make apes…
or maybe made to make an ape to make a net for catching whales in space…
and that's why we whale
I'm crack some ink
hugging the rock
wind wound around bone…
every raindrop calling earthsick."

The new John Butler Trio video was released this week. Popcore film asked me to help them out animating some streetart-ish gig posters on walls in a urban setting. The posters would feature the band members singing and playing the song. We spent some really long workdays to get it done in time. Anyway I think it turned out nice :) hope you like it.
Have a look for yourself:
Here's a quicktime version of the video:

I thought I would share some pictures of the process of making the "earth intruder" illustration / canvas print for the blackout creations artshow in Florida themed/called "robot invasion".
01. Well actually first I drew some thumbnail sketches but I couldn't find them anywhere and I'm usually really good at archiving and saving stuff :) but anyway here's the first pencil sketch I drew. A rough sketch basicly.
02. I re-drew a few lines on a different paper to be able to see it more clearly. Just some rough outlines.
03. After that I took out my light board and traced the lines of the sketch into a more precise and more detailed drawing and added all the details in. This was done with a few difrent types of markers on acid free paper
04. I then made a few difrent papers with ink and a brush to get some textures and layers to use when I would later colour the illustration on the computer, above are a few examples.
And Oh yeah as usual my cat "Lego" likes to get in the way, whatever I might be doing :)
05. I then scanned the drawings into the computer and started vectorizing the inked artwork in Flash to get a more perfect look and feel of the lines, I like them to feel hand drawn but still exact not like shaky and unbalanced that can happen when you use the original inked drawing especially when you are going to make a huge print of it and blow it up like 4 or 5 times its orginal size. Above are the final line work after it has been vectorized.
06. After that I got everything into photoshop and started coloring everything. Brought in the brush strokes I made earlier and some other textures and made some extra brush strokes that I scanned into the computer and used as well. Above you can see the finished piece.
07. Then it was sent to the printers and here's a picture of the finished print. Printed on canvas and mounted on a framework 100 x 70 cm. I'm pleaces with the way it turned out and the printer did a great job the colours got really good when printed :) looks great that big and colorful.

I just finished watching the latest David Lynch movie. I'm a huge Lynch fan and have been waiting to see this movie for so long now. I absolutely loved it. It's so strange and mysterious and scary it's like you're watching someones 3 hour long nightmare, with worlds within worlds within worlds within movies within movies within movies :) Well if you've seen Mulholland drive and did not enjoy that this film is not for you. This is like a more complicated and bizarre version of that film. Anyway some seens are just brilliant and I love that he put it some parts of his mini series "rabbits" to.
Here is the UK trailer on youtube:

Continued painting on the calavera tattoo canvas, it's now 1 am sunday night so I guess I should go to bed now.
The pictures is a bit hard to make out the details in. Anyway I added a hourglass on each side of the scull inside one is a green key in red liquid and in the other a red key in green liquid and their is a scissor for each going to cut it in half. also more details on the scull added and some lines such as lips and chin and some shadows. still more to go.
Listning to the audiobook for the old classic noir "the maltese falcon" really good. Also seen 2 movies this weekend Adaptation and Red dragon seen both of them before but it was years ago, both great films. Looking forward to Charlie Kaufmans new film Synecdoche, New York.
