Artist Proof

I been thinking about releasing art-prints for such a long time now, and now it's finally happening. This week I received the artist proof of my first art print :) And it's looking great, the details in the print work are amazing. It's a 4 color screen print on 250 grams acid free paper stock, 50 by 70cm, in a limited edition run of 70 copies. I'm so pleased with how this turned out and can't wait to get it out there. So stay tuned for more information on sales it will be available soon.

So this first print is the first illustration I made in my chameleon series, a portrait built up out of chameleons piled on top of each other. Below are a few photos of the artist proof.

Just finished this illustration the other week. It's an illustration for a folder about music rehearsal spaces and courses in music and so on. It folds in 2 places and stretches across the front and back of the folder so the half on the right is the outer 3 pages of the folder and the left half, are printed on the inside 3 pages, and then on top of that is a text layer with all the information.

Below are my original ink drawings before coloring, some of them didn't fit into the final composition.

I made a few different color suggestions so here are a few more, I think we ended up settling on the red one at the bottom. (click for bigger versions)

Creative Summit 2011

Been attending the annual Creative Summit conference in Skellefteå this week. Had a great time meeting up all the people from the North Kingdom Stockholm office. And checked out some interesting speakers. By far the coolest thing was Lorne Peterson's presentation, Lorne worked as a model maker at ILM for many many years, and is now retired since a few years back. He has worked on all the 6 Star Wars films and the Indiana Jones films, Alive, ET and a lot of other cool films. Great to hear him tell stories about how things where done, and different unexpected materials they used to achieve different looks and effects.

It's been a crazy sunny day here today, but I've been at the office all day so didn't catch much sun.
Working on a lot of new ink work right now, just started on a new record cover design, that has crazy amounts of ink work.
It should be done in a couple of weeks I hope. And then I have some new personal stuff in the works as well.

Anyway, speaking of ink I thought I would share a drawing from last year.
Forgot about posting it when it was done.
It started out just as an experiment in drawing fur, but ended up as an entire drawing, that I really like. Just black ink on paper and lots and lots of lines as you can see :)

Stay tuned for more.

My first tshirt design

Been going through some of my old clothes from back when I was a child, and came across this.
My first tshirt design :) Hand drawn with some sort of textile crayons on a black tshirt.

The front features a rainbow, some sort of santa clause looking guy down in the left corner, a house in the lower right corner and the text "Kenny 4 år" which translates to "Kenny 4 years" I guess that means I was 4 when I made it :)
The back has some sort of gangsta motif, haha a Gun and the words "pi pii pii", I have no idea what that was all about.

Digital clean up

Finished the inking last night and just now finished the clean up. Above is a comparison of the two. More to come.
