RebelNature concept drawing of Mutated Brittlestar emerging from the deep


I you wonder what effect the plastic pollution of the oceans has on the marine life then meet this new mutated gadget wearing brittlestar, crawling up the metal leg of RIG21 in the Rebel Nature universe.
Sadly there is plenty of food for this new specie and it is just a taste of what is happening deeper down. This is not a "bad-guy" in the common sense. It is evolution mixed with human waste and technology.

NOT just another day at the Ghost office!!!


It was never in question but today it is official that Ghost VFX deliver the stuff legends are made of. The poster you see here with dedication from ILM and the director, appeared in the Ghost office and we all vent to Copenhagen's biggest cinema to see Rogue One and guess who was on the creditlist...
Ghost VFX is simply the best and most dedicated company with the coolest crew.
It is amazing, quite surreal and historic for a Danish company and it promises great for future epic projects like our own Rebel Nature. Christmas definitely came early this year.

Merry Christmas from Goodman Rock and Rebel Nature


Snow falls heavy around the rocky outpost in the middle of the ocean nicknamed Goodman Rock. The lights are on and we are planning that 2017 is going to be Rebel Epic on many accounts. The amazing crew at Ghost has been busy doing a lot of other mind-blowing new projects that you will hear about very soon. But for now have a fantastic holiday, merry christmas and get ready for an epic 2017. #RebelNature #GoodmanRock #GhostVFX #FaberFuel

A tribute to all the true heroes of Bionicle. You the fans!

"Mask of time" made from pure protodermis, lie waiting in the sand, waiting to be discovered. Waiting to give it's bearer the ultimate power. Even a Turaga who have seen it all will search for that. The power to change time. The power to create legends. It is right there, grab it and grab it now!

"The stories we hear and the stories we tell, shapes who we are and what we do". This is what I have learned from working with creative storytelling through almost 30 years and no story has proven this stronger than Bionicle. The fans was, is and will be the true heroes of a story that becomes a legend.


I made this piece of Bionicle fan art earlier this year, on request of the french fansite Bionifigs.com. It is a tribute celebrating their 10-years anniversary. At the same time it is a tribute to all who have been a part of this great adventure.
Please share this with all the fans you know. This one is for you!

Res Waveborn's leap of faith

Creating the new RebelNature story universe and launching the startup feels a lot like taking a "leap of faith", jumping into the unknown. You have to believe in the future and the survival skills you have learned through the years. One thing is certain, it is not going to be easy or routine.

Inktober 2016 - The INKredible Adventures of Drawboy #12

"As I walk through the valley of the shadow of waste"


 

worried is putting it mildly. 

Is this really the legacy we will leave behind on planet earth. Maybe creativity is the answer. draw what you dream about instead of consuming it and leaving it as waste.

A new setup and a new gallery

A full can of FF Zero G floats just above the sand waiting to refuel a well-traveled craft


This visual is an attempt to show what I intend to deliver through my new company called Faber Fuel. It also marks the launch of a Gallery where I will collect my original artwork, photos and concepts from the past and present. Please visit, like, comment and share (That is my best fuel).
Link to the Faber Gallery blog

The name Faber Fuel comes from the idea of this faraway FF "Gas"station in the middle of an amazing rocky dessert where all kind of vehicles and characters land to get re-fueled before going on new adventures. The travelers both give and get inspiration and stories and they know that this is no ordinary fuel. It is FF Zero G and it neutralizes gravity giving amazing positive lift and power to go anywhere. Zero G basically gives you the power to travle infinite distances and infinite time in a single thought with almost no harmful emission:)
The FF station is just a thought away and I hope to see you there for a refill, a chat and new adventures.

"Someday, somewhere in the universe" My first piece of PostBio fan art



With the discovery of a new Earthlike planet reasonably close to us the idea of arriving to a new world gives lots of new inspiration. This is my first visual thought on this subject and maybe you can spot something familiar on the beach. If the content is organic or robotic that is up to your imagination. Any thoughts?:)

Sketches from Turaga Beach - Tribute to the fans


Dear longtime fans of a certain biological chronicle. This video is an attempt to do a Turaga Beach tribute to the real heroes of this story and that is all the fans who joined and build the adventure through all those years. Your imagination and creativity is what it has been about since the beginning. I've used an unreleased version of an old #Cryoshell tune.
I came upon an early mix of "Closer to the truth" and for some reason it fits really nicely. It has a melancholic and fragile tone that is broken up by raw guitar riffs. The text also has some of the good references to the ending of G2 and then there is the alternative ending that has a nice "Kick" to it.

Now everybody is Turaga and it is time to move on from the beach wether you sail out or move inland to find new stories, pause a while, turn your head and look behind you a last time before you leave. You have everything you need in your memories and all the fuel you need in your imagination to go on new adventures. Go, go, go I'll see you on another beach someday.

RebelNature concept - Mind controlling a Drone


This is a concept poster of Res Waveborn learning to mind control her small custom build drone. This little drone plays a vital part in the escape from RIG21. It s the merge between human and technology where the drone functions as an extra external set of eyes and a remote brain extension. Some less friendly drones are approaching from below.

Low gravity craft concept sketches

Rainy days are good for especially one thing and that is free sketching on the Ipadpro. Here you have 2 crafts/vehicles form a low gravity planet where vehicles can float just above the surface if they have  zero gravity tanks abord. Maybe I can find place for these in the future edition of #RebelNature or some other type of story/universe.
This low gravity freighter can detach into 3 separate crafts

Res diving into danger



Concept drawing of Res Waveborn diving into danger in a new type of innovative all-terrain vehicle. It works as well above water as below and is build out of spare parts from a research sub and a jet plane plus a new experimental dark-matter engine. The pilot sits on a free floating seat moving inside the sphere. 
This is the danger zone and right behind the tiny craft a giant mutated ray hunts the prey. The lifeforms underwater has totally changed and this is just below the surface. Imagine what awaits deeper down. #RebelNature and #ResWaveborn will travel sea, air and land when the universe unfolds:)

Flashback to Brazil



Back in 2003 after coming home from 10 days vacation in RIO to the cold winter in Copenhagen, I was desperately seeking the iconic softdrink that is an important part of everyday life on the beach.
At that time Guarana was not imported to Denmark but by strange coincidence I met the guy who was planing to independently import the brand. I spottet a logo streamer in the back of his car and stopped him to ask if he knew about the brand in DK. I ended up helping him make a small campaign for the launch in DK. I did some posters and postcards, got them printet and delivered them to the bars and cafe's around Copenhagen. It never went as big as it was/is in Brazil but you can still get the brand in Denmark and soon all eyes will be on Rio so here is a little taste.

Res Waveborn Escape RIG21 - LOG

Res in her hideaway on RIG21 preparing for the escape.

I have been preparing for this all my life. I had no idea this was where it was all going. Everything I did, every move I made was always leading to this. The switch is in place. Inside Mind One’s protective shield like my father designed it. It will make the entire rig sink into the ocean. We need to get out before that happens.

We can do it. As long as Scraper doesn’t run out of power…

Exaggerated?


#RebelNature is all about using story and visuals to make change in our approach to consumption and environment. Plastic in nature is a big issue but often it is covered by waves and foliage so here are 3 visuals where the problem is difficult to overlook.
Please use, share and spread these posters if you agree that we and the coming generations have a giant issue right outside our door. Try to consider if you really need that plastic bag or that plastic lid for your coffee to go.

4 faces from the past

Fire Slizer/Throwbot
Sub Slizer/Throwbot
Jungle Slizer
Judge Slizer
Cleaning up some old files these 4 faces suddenly stared at me from a distant past (1998)
This is the original illustrations that went on the faceplates of 4 of the Slizer/Throwbots. It was important to make the face asymmetrical and chaotic with reference to the different environments to give them a unique personal look. #Slizer #Throwbots

What you don't see will hurt you...


I apologise for this sinister image but it is an image that has grown in my mind and I had to try to create it.
If you see it upside down you might recognise an old black/white picture from 1945.

I fear that the plastic pollution of the oceans is to resemble with a slow detonating bomb of unknown magnitude and effect. The bomb has exploded but the effect is longterm and probably won't effect me and if I'm lucky not my kids but then what.
We are going to be measured very hard by future generations if we don't act knowing what is wrong. So like smoking some years ago was considered a human right and now is strictly regulated. Our use and attitude to plastic has to change dramatically. Plastic is oil and it has to be contained. If a supertanker spills oil in the ocean it becomes a giant press story but the 8 million ton of plastic that is estimated to be spilled in the ocean each year all over the world goes invisible.
It ought to be a human duty to collect plastic everywhere we see it and not a human right to throw it away. If we don't start acting biology will change and nature will rebel. RebelNature is an adventure but it has a very important inspiration.

Flashback to Hero Factory episode 11 concept. Shrineroom

A quick flashback to 3 years ago when we worked hard on creating the world behind Hero Factory episode 11 "Invasion from below".
The basalt Shrineroom underneath Antropolis created in ancient times. Warning the future not to enter the underground


Concept sheet describing the look of the Shrine room and Big drop

Much has been said about Hero Factory and episode 11. But given all the compromises and budget issues, voice talent that wasn't available... - bottom line I think this episode produced entirely by Ghost and Advance, actually turned out very adventurous and actionpacked.
It was definitely ment to be continued because Heroes do not leave a half done mission. But HF was abandoned and the rest is history.
A fun fact behind episode 11 is that it is seen more than 5 million times on different Youtube profiles.

Amy Winehouse & Prince tribute sketch poster


I would love to have been at that aftershow in London on 22h September 2007 when Amy Winehouse and Prince performed "Love is a losing game" together live. Now they are both history and legends. I don't have the rights to put the music on this video but go and check it out here on YouTube. Amy and Prince encapsulates what music is about. Pure emotion and energy.
