Picnic time

So it's getting colder and colder here, and I'm starring out the window and the snow is falling once again. Time to get ready for 6 months of winter. Anyway it's about time to bring life to this blog again. First up is a illustration I made back in the early summer, for a invitation-card to a picnic celebrating the birth of our daughter Myra.

I really like how some of the characters turned out, might just see more of them in the future.

Here are the first few character sketches.

And a rough layout sketch.

The final inked piece.

Sometimes it can be a bit hard to draw when you have a overly social cat :)

Kitchen collaboration - NK STOCKHOLM

This spring me and Robert Lindström did this illustration together. It will be put up on a wall in the kitchen at the North Kingdom office in Stockholm.

Robert worked on the overall concept/art direction and the girl on the left, and I did the octopus and jelly fish on the right.

Here's the first sketch that I received from Robert, and by that my starting point.

At one time it was just going to be jelly fish in the right area but we decided on a octopus as well to give it more life and for me to bring something more to this concept. Here's the first sketch I did, but it didn't feel just right.

So I reworked the octopus into a new style. But I liked that the octopus is asking her for a cup of coffee :) so that I kept.

Here's the flat colored version, mashed up with Roberts illustration.

I started working on the first drawing of a new series of illustrations today. I've been thinking about this for some time now and I'm very excited to see what it will end up looking like when it's done. And I have plans for a bunch more in the same series when this one is done.
Anyone who wants to take a guess on what this fist sketch is suppose to resemble? :)

My cat likes to be the center of attention, it's kind of hard to work when he ends up sitting on my drawings or falling asleep on top of them :P

Also I just read about this new documentary "Waking sleeping beauty", sounds like a great film I can't wait to see it. It's about the Disney animation studio between the years 1984 and 1994.
More info about the film can be found over at firstshowing

Two new illustrations

I recently finished two new illustrations for the youth branch of Swedish; Save the children.
They wanted two illustrations about gender roles and the norms that restrain us.
The first one is an illustration about breaking free from norms and gender roles.

And this second one is about; how we are molded into different gender roles in different situations. So for example the line of crosses represents biological gender, the line of pyramids; legal gender, the cylinder line; social gender, and so on. And how some fit into these roles and some don't and some are more or less trapped in them. And in the end of the lines it's transformed into a new shape representing all different types of gender roles in one single shape.

Cameleon portrait process pt.1

First post of the new year!
I'm working on a new illustration of a pile of cameleons coming together and forming a face. Above is a film from when I was drawing the linework. Music by DZR:P, check them out.

Since I could not fit the entire drawing in my scanner I had to scan it in parts and reassemble them on the computer afterwards.

Cleaning up the linework, there's always alot of dust and imperfections when you close enough to it.

So I cleaned it up digitally to get more clear lines.

Trying out a few different coloring options, not finished with that part yet stay tuned for the finished product.

The finished linework. I'm working on the coloring now. My aim is making this into a limited silkscreen poster print when it's done.
And possibly do a few more illustrations in the same series to go with it.
If anyone know of any good silkscreen artprint studios that will ship to Sweden, please let me know.
