The INKredible Adventures of Drawboy #26

"You are what you draw and each drawing is an image of you".
DrawBoy is originally a title I gave myself when people asked what my job was at the advertising agency I used to work at. The name kind of grew on me because it describes the craft of drawing in it's purest form. This was and is the craft I love and it is my favourite meditation and expression.
So DrawBoy is my superhero and alter ego. He tries to catch as many impressions as possible, stack them in his memory and merge them into visuals and concepts. It all starts with the simple pencil and the white surface of the paper or whatever media you choose.
"So go chase those images and make them your own. Consuming and creating images are the most sustainable type of consumption you can imagine"

50%, 50% robot, 100% new evolved hermit crab

Deep beneath the waves of the ocean and Rig21, this strange creature scavenge for spareparts and energy. It is a mix of organic life and robot technology. The head of a deepsea robot reused by a mutated crab. In nature everything is reused, even the thrashed and replaced technology.

Still "Emergency on planet earth"

This is my interpretation of a 2017 version of the 1993 Jamiroquai album "Emergency on planet Earth"

On May 17, 1993. 24 years ago, something epic and magic happened on my musical world map. For many years I had been into jazz, funk and soul and I had been chasing rare vinyl albums in strange record stores since my early teens. Suddenly this album "Emergency on planet Earth" landed on my turntable and a lot of dots connected. Suddenly the music I loved for it's groovy ear catching quality carried a message of purpose. Not just the usual text subjects but danceable music that actually at the same time made you think. In the middle of this small revolution (in my book) stood the amazing Jay Kay who in some way managed to merge funk with a purpose. He displayed the coolest style in a mix of sporty, hippie and funky, and he could dance like never seen before. I was blown away and many years later when I first sketched the idea to my story universe Rebel Nature, it was actually to the sound of Jamiroquai.
Jamiroquai and Jay Kay represents the perfect picture of the situation our civilisation is facing right now. They amplify the knowledge about our planet and environment and the epic challenges we face yet at the same time they have a party and dance the worries away. Living the dream with fast cars, private jets and models in bikinis.
When raising kids they do what you do, not what you say, so in this case we tent to hear the music, have the party, dream about the star life and then forget the purpose.

If this post ever reached Jay Kay, I would beg Jamiroquai to reissue "Emergency on planet Earth" in a 2017 version or 2018 making it a 25 years anniversary, and have Jay Kay drive a electric supercar.

Here is a link for the video that is still depressingly relevant here in 2017.

Cryoshell 2017 Kickstarter teaser poster

Cryoshell Kickstarter 2. April 2017

I am thrilled to tell you that the Kickstarter for Cryoshell 2017 is now fixed to 2. of April and it feels so good to be back in the Cryoshell work zone with Christine, Kasper & Mikkel. Hopefully we can send you updates and keep you posted until April the 2nd.

Everybody talks about their bucket list...

...if I ever had written a bucket list, this is one thing I would never have dared to put on. But then again..., there it is ...
I recommend not writing things down on a list making your dreams into assignments but follow your heart, stay curious, a bit humble and creatively hungry, have fun and embrace coincidence. To but it short "Do good work". Scrap the lists and the impossible may happen.
I'm immensely honoured to have my name on this ad in Cinefex where Ghost VFX thanks ILM for the assignments on Rogue One - A Star Wars story. I'm so impressed and proud of all the people at Ghost VFX for constantly chasing the dream, the excellence and the skill.
