Finally a full day of work done.

The last two month since I came here to La Palma, I have been a lot on holiday. And I have to admit, very little work has been done.
The situation also being, me still not having found a place for myself where I can work undisturbed, has led to a lot of moving about. Hence not a lot of art or music has been produced.
But I am lucky to have a friend resident here on the island, whom have lent me her computer, scanner and flat with an internet connection.
Thus today I’ve done heaps and even managed to knock out a few drawings and a painting.

The first one here, is a watercolour piece I did over three days.
Like I just did a few min each morning, and this morning I felt it was ok.

Then again I am also constantly working on the characters for the new graphic novella I try to stitch together (still have no name for it as of yet).
Her’s a couple….

Just to show I am still at it.
Stay cool and keep an eye on my blog, more cool news are on the way.

Space ships, Female naked killer, sketching and character design….FUN!

Hie! everybody, here’s a little to inspire and enjoy….

Due to sickness in my family and travelling, my access to internet has been sporadic, and I’d had no scanner in this time. But I’ve been sketching, drawing and going on as usual.

 

Now I have lots of stuff I can tempt you with over the next days, and I will start of with some neat space ships I tried to do for a series I am about to put together at some time in not too distant future.

 

It’s very early in the idea stage and I am just playing around a little to get some ideas and inspiration….

 

…..all these drawings was done with a black marker, Black ballpoint pen and a few colored markers
 

 

 

Now here you can have a peak in to what will be one of the key figures in the last part of “The St. Pauli Blues”, and whom we will also meet in the third part (witch just happen to be one of the two things I am drawing at the moment…are seven pages in to it already).

 

She is a murderer for hire, and she come from the most infamous of stocks….. OK that’s as much as you get …ALRIGHT THEN!!!   her real family(if one can call it that)name…. is Meinhoff Baader….. OK THAT’S IT!!!!

 

Here are some of the many sketches I’ve made to try to visualize this character …..all these drawings was done with a black marker, Black ballpoint pen, few brushes, ink and watercolor …..enjoy

 

 

Tough bitch eh? …. See y’all around

Mighty Moti

Hello all and sorry for my long absence. I haven’t had a PC or IA in a while thus not been able to upload stuff for you to enjoy.

To mend this lack of attention from my side I will now share something very special with ya’ll.

You see A good friend and helper in emptying of bottles of Bushmillls, Harris Moore  shared an excellent poem of his with me the other day.

It did in its turn inspire me to wanna draw the bloody thing. And needing a little diversion from the  task at hand (The st. Pauli blues) after three years, it seemed a good idea to me anyway…..

I used to busk and both Harris and Moti (The stories protagonist and hero) are friends from back then.

Last two days I’ve tried to visualize the characters and get a feel for the kind of look I need to give it.
These are just quick sketches done with the tools on the first pic, on scraps of paper and in my notebooks.

 

I will do more sketching before I write a script and make a panel plan.

Especially exterior and the weather we wanna have….


“The St.Pauli Blues” finally online

I have finally gotten myself around to do a online version of my graphic novel. You can read it here:  http://thestpauliblues.smackjeeves.com/comics/1296301/cover/

The St. Pauli Blues has finally gotten a cover we might be able to use

Anyone who has followed me and my struggle to create a graphic novel that I can look at and still be satisfied in 10 years, has realized it is a lot of over and over again.
And since I started learning to draw in a proper way at the same time, there was bound to be lots of it.
That goes for the cover as well.
But still it is only the third attempt, and I feel good about this one.
I would have sourced out that task if I could afford to, it being such an important marketing tool in this business and all.
But here it is, hope you like it as well….

 

Second Studio45 Gallery on Behance

This is the second gallery we open in just as many days on Behance .

This exhibition is a peek in to our new graphic novel “The St. Pauli Blues”

Final Page Design for The St. Pauli Blues

I have redrawn 60% of the 70 pages and changed the over all graphic design since I last posted.These last 5 pages are the final design.
There will be variations on the graphic design since I plan to make a web friendly version for online reading (like one and one picture in stead of pages of’em), and another for iPad related reading devices.
These pages are also with text thus you’d just get a few assorted once to save the suspense until release ..sorry :) but it won’t be long now before we can have a look at the whole thing in all it’s glory.
So now, here we go…
