raccoon

This is a print I made for Molo Kids of a raccoon. It will be placed on a girls T-shirt.

 


listening to...

Ane Brun.
I am loving the album "It all starts with one" is soooo in sync with my mood these days.
She has the most lovely melancholic and beautiful voice. Strong yet fragile. I love that.
You should indeed take a listen!

So exciting it is to get a package all the way from Japan. Loveliest thing.

Thanks to the great people at ARTBOX International for choosing to showcase my work.

more portraits

These are two portraits and some vignettes for an editorial about women and alcohol. I made these for ALT for damerne, a Danish lifestyle magazine. I can not remember in which issue the are featured... but I think it has been a while (crocodille).




 
Now I will head to bed - been working late. I always find that the evening/night is the most peaceful time to work. I love the quiteness and it oftentimes feels like a vacuum in time and space. But now I am truly tired, so I better close down the curtain and say "nighty night" before I start making too many errors! Will have a read in my book before I close my eyes though. (Haruki) Murakami that is.

private portrait commission

It's been so very long since my last blog post, I can't believe it!

You have probably already noticed that I changed the look and design of my blog. I felt it was time for change, so I hope you like it.

I have been lucky enough to have been working on a couple of very nice projects, which I will be sharing with you in the coming blog posts.

Anyways - today I will share with you a private commission that I had for a portrait of a young girl named Chili. This was commissioned by her mother; such a sweet, honest and accommodating person, who had stumbled upon my blog and had fell in love with my work.

Chilis mum told me that her girl liked butterflies, dragonflies and birds and since she have such an unusual name it was obvious that I needed to but some chili flowers and chili in the portrait as well. I put two butterflies and a ladybug and initially also added a dragonfly but then the drawing started to get a bit crowded with insects, so I erased the dragonfly and added the dog in her hand which is their family dog.

I think one of the reasons why I loved working with this portrait is because it was of a kid. And because the main purpose was to express her personality. A happy, carefree one indeed.

I hope you all have had a wonderful summer up until now. In Denmark the weather has been incredibly warm. Resembling the childhood summers in my mind - long and sunny.
