Dagtavletegninger til barnehagen

Siden i sommer har jeg jobbet med å tegne nye dagtavletegninger til barnehagen. Disse bruker vi om morgenen til å prate med barna om hva vi skal gjøre den dagen.

Sjekk butikken for å bestille. Her er de jeg har laget så langt:

Self-promotion

It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy. Mostly with some economic troubles, but also with preparing to go on the big job hunt.

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

Here’s my portfolio:

Exquisite corpses

hossdt

Last week at a roleplaying session, we started doing what I’ve now found out are called exquisite corpses. Armed with the knowledge that what we did was, in fact, not silly children’s games, but subversive surrealist art, I decided to ink up the plain pencil drawings we made, and make some proper pieces out of them.

We started off pretty straightforwardly with this two-parter:Continue reading

The Zoo in Bergen

Yet another illustration for an op-ed in Studvest. More restrictive rules are being considered for bars and clubs in Bergen, due to the noise and violence that’s associated with Norwegian drinking culture.

Testing Onone photo tools

I recently bought my upgrade to CS5, just before a promotional giveaway, where I could choose between 30 days of tutorials, a font that’s sort of like Minion but with a bigger x-height — and a Photoshop plugin.

I picked the Photoshop plugin, and I can now choose whether to make my photos look like they’re hipsterriffically vintage or part of a bland European advertising campaign. Thanks Onone!

Jokes aside, the plugin contains a range of preset actions with effects that are commonly used among professional photographers, including ones that simulate analogue effects such as cross processing. The interface seems kind of unfinished, but it’s fairly intuitive.

I didn’t see a single effect that couldn’t be achieved by using what’s already in Photoshop, but it’s a lot faster to combine several complex effects using this. Some of the effects do have that good «workhorse» feel to them, but many of them feel more or less like tired clichés. Even tired clichés can be useful, though.

I went for a more subtle effect on the image below.

Guess which film I just watched

Say what you want about the plot of Tron Legacy, the visual style and the music is some of the most inspirational and striking stuff I’ve got from a movie for quite a while.

Knocked the above out in an hour or so after watching it while listening to the soundtrack. Drew up the basic composition in Illustrator, exported to Photoshop to add some grit, and just had a grand old time.

On buying an apartment as a student in Bergen

Another illustration for the local student newspaper. With the standard student loan and stipend provided to students in Norway, you can lend enough money to buy an apartment that’s six square meters in downtown Bergen. This is a suggestion for how to do the interior.
