Sexy Gloster Corona Action!

As the top search term that’s been driving traffic to my site, I’ve found it’s probably a good decision to pay the noble bird some more attention.

Some of my older posts only have small images. This is one of those posts, sorry about that.it's another drawing of a gloster corona canari (mer…)

Illustration and installation

Model made by Ingar Midtbø

An outdoors-stage for the local theatre. From a school project this fall, concept developed together with classmate Ingar Midtbø.

The stage would host free plays directed at children, providing a more outward community-oriented profile for the theatre.

The actual stage is a small amphitheatre dug into the ground, so it interferes as little as possible with the facade. Lighting is installed in, on and around the stage, giving plenty of flexibility for creating different moods.

Some of my older posts only have small images. This is one of those posts, sorry about that.

Trees, sculptures and the landscape around the stage is modified to allow less conventional seating, and to provide a fun place to climb and play when the stage isn’t being used by actors.

Trying out my new tria markers

Super professional smelly markers.

A guy with lots of colors, I think this could be a nice direction to take with these, at least if I use paper that bleeds less:

guy with purple, green and blue shadows

The tria markers do work differently from other markers, the strokes seem to flow into eachother more, and if you aren’t careful, you end up with an image that looks like it’s been drawn with the standard soft brush in photoshop. Please don’t make images using only the standard soft brush in photoshop, it looks sloppy.

I also got myself another pentel brush-pen, replacing the one I lost. More heads! Used the tria markers for shading:

No I don’t know what’s going on with the hair on these :l

New studvest illustration, modest Tora

norwegian minister of higher education asking your average norwegian for more funds

«please sir», said Tora, «I want some more»

The text I’m illustrating claims we need a more agressive minister of higher education than Tora Aasland, who is the one we’ve got.

I’d hoped that people would get the Oliver Twist reference, but the friends I asked didn’t. I guess the work just isn’t as big as I thought in Norway.

I’d say the illustration still works as long as people can see that Tora Aasland is being a bit timid.

Even more discoveries

Discovery 1: Satoshi Kon’s last words
Satoshi Kon
As Satoshi Kon died, the world lost one of it’s best storytellers, and one of the few directors of Japanese animation whose projects went beyond just pure adolescent escapism (not that there’s anything horribly wrong with pure adolescent escapism). Makiko Itoh, a Japanese blogger, translated his last words to english — there are a lot of them, and they’re very good: http://www.makikoitoh.com/journal/satoshi-kons-last-words

Cheese based Studvest Illustration

Picture of sighing students at a student cafeteria, with signs advertising cheese-based products

The issue this time is the fact that students aren’t engaged enough in student politics — the last student election, only about 16% of the students at the local university chose to vote. The danger with this, of course, is that a relatively small group of cheese-extremists could steal the election by simply voting for their own party! The illustration shows the result: the cafeteria now only sells a cheese based coffee substitute, Gorgonzola Cola, parmesan lollies and, of course, cheese. The student newspaper on the stand lets us know that this happened because no one cared.
