#ThrowBackThursday -Nocturnal Deception
October 30th, 2014 | Other

Resized Image

Now this was a while indeed. For this weeks TBT I chose something Halloween themed. This is ‘Nocturnal Deception’ done with pencils. I read in my description from DA that I did this drawing for Zindy Nielsen’s Vampire contest back in 2009, and that I got first price!:) I was kinda happy with it because I only used my own references and combined them to suit my idea. Also I drew more from my imagination. Usually I’d just draw straight off from a photograph. The funniest part about this I think is that both models are meXD Pretty freaky, uh!?

#ThrowBackThursday -Isolate
October 23rd, 2014 | Other

Resized Image

It’s Throwback Thursday and today I will throwback to February 2012. This is ‘Isolate’, painted with black, red and a bit of white ink. This is one of my first ink paintings and by that time I had started to realize how much I loved working with ink. As in many of my artworks I want to capture an emotion and this truly is one of those that gets under my skin. I don’t want to get too personal, even though this piece is that for me. I went through a very tough time with a lot of feelings and broken hearts, that’s when I felt I just want to isolate my heart. Protect it from my feelings, cause they will only make me hurt. That’s how the idea developed in my head and later I started experimenting with red ink and learned how to get the bloody effect that I wanted. I used some kind of medical illustration as reference to the heart and a photo of a glass sphere, otherwise I worked from my own imagination. I wrote a poem to it as well to capture what I felt at that moment.

Is there any work that you would like to see for next weeks TBT?

This artwork is taking a lot longer than I first expected it to. But I always want to do my best and I just loove drawing the small details. So here’s an other work in progress. It’s going to be exhibited in Stockholm, but more about that later!

#ThrowBackThursday -Love escape

Yey, it’s #ThrowBackThursday again! 

This is ’Love escape’, done 2012 with graphite pencils, ink pen and red ink for details. It has a long background story which I will now tell you. And no, I’m not referring to the story I wrote to the work, that one you can read on my website. It begun as early as in 2008, my final year in high school, in art class. We were going to paint in oils and I chose to do a big painting, 100x70cm, inspired by the renaissance masters. Although I had almost never worked with oils before, especially not this big. Anyway, that did not seem to frighten me at that time, I was thinking big and went all in. I planned the concept carefully and I also developed a story to it that I wrote down. I’m still very fond of that story, which is the main reason for why I then 4 years later, wanted to redo the artwork. This time in a new style that I had just started developing. Also because I never felt quite finished with that big oil painting. Every time I see it, I see the details I never got to paint. Now the story got a new life again and I hope that you will enjoy it!

Well that is my background story to ’Love escape’, and if you have any questions about this work or wanna tell me what you think, I’d be glad to hear!
