Hjælp Uganda spil


et lidt anderledes løsning på en illustration til en artikel i DJØF. artiklen handlede om ulandshjælp, og om hvordan at store summer altid har det med at forsvinde undervejs til de trængende hænder. jeg måtte gerne vise korruption men endlig ikke overdrive... mig overdrive? må jeg lige være her :)
det ovenstående spil var mit bud. find en almindelig sekssidet terning frem (ikke en gammel rollespilsterning med underlige tegn og 17 sider) og du er klar til at spille.

Flammen og Citronen


en rigtig sjov lille opgave. journalist og forfatter Michael Holbek Jensen ringede mig op og fortalte at Danmarks Blinde Bibliotek skulle udgive "Flammen og Citronen" som lydbog, og at der i den forbindelse med udgvielsen ville blive uddelt en gratis special version af lydbogen... og kunne jeg tænke mig at lave forsiden til den? meget kort pause. ja selvfølgelig.
der var nogle få krav i forhold til mål, tekst der skulle indgå, TV2 logo og ikke mindst måtte man gerne kunne genkende Mads Mikkelsen og Thure Lindhardt på tegningen... men den skulle ikke være den sammen som filmplakaten eller bogforsiden.
jeg begyndte at rode materialet igennem og fandt frem til nogle fotos der kunne bruges. og ud fra dem dannede jeg en komposition at arbejde ud fra.
den anden dag sendte Michael Holbek Jensen mig nogle stykker af den trykte version med bogen på cd. lækkert. min oprindelige tegning har dog mistet nogle milimeter til limning med bagsiden af etuiet, men det er ikke noget der rykker ved noget.

Journalisten - portræt


et lille portræt til det seneste nummer af fagbladet journalisten. til en ny klumme af journalist og forfatter Anders Rou Jensen.
nedenunder er et foto af den trykte version.
den opmærksomme læser vil ligge mærke til at jeg skriver på dansk og ikke på engelsk som jeg plejer. fremover vil min blog være på dansk. om jeg får taget mig sammen til at oversætte de tidligere indlæg vil tiden vise.

Husk at børste bisserne


en mere info-grafisk illustration til det danske arena, om tandpleje. husk at børste og bruge tandtråd. og et godt råd herfra, børst i cirkler, så undgår man blottede tandhalse.

Shelter from the storm


from todays edition of kristeligt dagblad for an article about how we all are hoping to seek shelter until the financial storm blows over. you can read the article in danish here.

Stop the thief!


one of two illustrations in the latest issue of "taenk" for articles about new devices that are sure to make the already stressful job of breaking the law even more aggravating.
the little policman/guard was cropped in the final, but it still works okay. i don't mind, i'm at ease, pure zen, out of my hands, none of my concern.

Latest issue of Socialpaedagogen


a couple of illustrations i did for the latest issue of "socialpaedagogen", for two articles about anti-depressives.
in the first one i tried to show the anti-depressives being shamefully hidden... but the color of the pill glass and the hand blended more than i intended.
this is how it printed in the magazine. god i love that huge black area, and the thin lines cutting into the flat color shapes. i have to do more illustrations like this.


in the second illustration i wanted to show the girl shielding herself from the very people she was hired to take care of. very symbolic she has taken refugee in the pill glass.

and this is how the second illustration was printed.


Designer babies


the illustration was for kristeligt dagblad for an article about sperm banks, written by Jon Gehlert. apparently the recipients can by more and more choosy when it comes to selecting the sperm for there future baby. i hope my own feelings towards this is conveyed clearly in my drawing.
this is how is printed in the paper. it got a little cropped at the buttom.. :(

Slugs

after playing way too much crash bandicoot on our playstation, Jonas and i decided to draw for a while till dinner was ready. we stayed in the game mode and made up new enemies and fellow heroes. these slugs are my contribution to our little mind game.

In saturdays paper

this illustration was printed saturdays edition of kristeligt dagblad for an article by Freja Bech-Jessen. the article was about modern young mothers who want to do it all... while having a baby.

this was my first version, but the paper wanted a few changes to better fit the article.

Yesterday and today

a couple of illustrations for kristeligt dagblad. the top one ran in yesterdays paper, for an article about a new pill that will supposedly erase bad memories (traumatic ones). the writer is curious about if memory enhancing pills will be made, or even pills that give you memories of things you never experienced.


the one below is in todays paper for an article about identity, and how many of us let our job dictate our persona. what happens when and if we loose our job? how are we?

Doodles



lately i've been working too much... well at least too much to get a lot of doodling done. so i could only find a couple worth posting.
