TED-ed

My dear friend Mette Ilene Holmriis just finished this beautiful piece of animation for TED-ed about “The evolution of animal genitalia”. She has been chipping away on this beauty for several months on her own. And the end result is super charming! I am super proud of her. I helped a bit with animating a few sperm-cells, a spider and a few other tiny things.

I had a bunch of art- and animation-hungry kids hanging out at my place today talking about how I work, the creative process and how to survive as an artist. Just for the heck of it (and because it is cool) we did a photogrammetric scan of one of the students. When you have 11 youngsters sitting in the background it is pretty sure that something is bound to move during the process of taking the pictures. But somehow we ended up with a couple of pretty interesting images as a result of ‘the living backdrop’.

And a little added play with textures…

Projection mapping breakdowns

I did a spot with the good people at Visionaere a few months back. The spot was called for to be dynamic, but we only had a couple of pictures at our disposal, so I decided to see if we could create something interesting using the Projection Man tool in C4d. I have had a couple of questions about the process, so I thought I would just post a breakdown of 2 of the shots. It took me around a day per shot.

Asia Sketchbooks

We just returned from an amazing trek through Myanmar and Cambodia. (I will upload a couple of pictures when we get them developed) but for now you will have to settle with a couple of pages from my sketchbooks…

Fare well Starman

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of David Bowie. Unfortunately there was a very tragic heartbreaking event unfolding in my circle of friends as the Thin White duke passed away, so it didn’t really hit me as hard as it probably would have at the time. He was an extremely inspiring artist (to me at least) and walked a perfect tightrope between ultra cool and ultra kitsch while constantly playing with the norms while exploring new forms of expression…
It can never be better or more heartfelt than the work by the master himself. Regardless, about a month ago I sat down and did this cover as a goodbye to one of the greatest songwriters and producers of the 70’es and 80’es. Fare well Starman…
