Caught red-handed.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008


This is just for fun. It's full of cliches, but I'm standing by it defiantly! The background was heavily inspired by the wallpaper in the upstairs bathroom back home, I always kind of liked it.

The fix

This one isn't quite ready yet, I'm still thinking about the colours and stuff. I thought I'd post it now though, because I'm going to Lapland for a week to visit my parents and I propably won't be posting anything during that time. So, to keep the illusion of a steady stream of posting, here's The Fix!

Royal plague

I've been thinking about this image for months and now I finally got it done. I'm very happy with how these came out, I really like the floor and the cape!
Here's the digital version:

And here's the original watercolour version:

Ice princesses

I was going through some old stuff and came across this unfinished piece. I don't remember if I've posted this or something similar before, but I don't think so. I don't know why I tossed it aside when I did, I guess I just got tired of working on it. Anyway, it's definitely not one of my best drawings, but it's got some interesting elements, so I here it is. Maybe it'll inspire someone to make something actually good!

Voodoo madonna

I wanted to make an icon-like painting with a voodoo theme, this is how it turned out! It had a lot more voodoo related stuff in the first scetch; knives, feathers, beheaded chickens, but they were kind of eliminated in the process. Now there's just the wide-horned bull. Here's the computer aided version:

And the real-life version:

I made the halo and the frames with tin foil to give it an icon-like look. The scanner made it look a bit funny, it's a lot less crappy in nature.

The sword

Of lately:

Here's the hand-coloured version of it:

Although my aquarelle-technique is embarrassingly bad, this one has some home-made charm to it. I wasn't sure about the colour of the ocean first, but now I love the coldness and crispness of it. And I will get better with water colours, I just have to.. It's kind of nice to have a finished piece that you can actually hold in your hands.

Cats, bags and new addresses

I've drawn a few birthday cards lately. First one is for my sister's 30th birthday, that's her with a Louis Vuitton -bag ready for countdown. She loved it! The other one I drew a couple of days ago for a friend of mine. I'm a bit obsessed with big cats at the moment.

It was a big change to make something that has to be ready as it is, no tweaking or colouring with software (and no undo-button..). I liked it, it forces me to make desicions about the colours and other stuff very fast, it usually takes me forever. Now it's just you and the material, the possibilities aren't endless like with a computer, and the piece comes together very organically. I'm planning to do some water colouring very soon, I'll be posting it if it turns out any good.

My submission for Illustration Friday. I've been away for a long time, but I'm planning to be posting a lot in the near future!

Another one in the same series as the "plain" -entry for IF. I think I'll add some kind of a tattoo in the girl's back, once I figure out what to do.

aaargh! my eyes!

i have been thinking about this picture for a few weeks now and i finally got it on paper. the drawing came out ok, but the most fun i had in photoshop colouring it. i know it is eye-wateringly insane, but for me, it kind of works in a perverse sort of way. i cant get enough of that blue! i recommend shades if you are going to stare at it for a long time though. my vision is kind of blurry from working on it for hours...

I'm finally back in the game! I'm quite happy with this one, and it was relatively painless to do.
