Cars, Cars and more Cars!

Geeez this post is up late! But it’s still a weekday, som I’m still kinda on time. Sooo I made me some cars, why? Well I don’t really know, it was fun? Something I do know is that Back to the future celebrated it’s 30th anniversary and in honor of that I made two DeLoreans, one modern pink and the other old school grey. Oh yeah!

 

 

Hope you like it!

The Patterns

Been working on repetitive patterns in photoshop this week, Added som fabric textures and grain to make it a little more interesting. I had an idea of printing stuff I like on fabric, watched some clips on youtube, Not really sure if i would want to walk around with these prints and patterns, but I had a fun time working with this post.

 

Hope you like it!

Wearable Food

I still have a food thing going on here on the blog, can’t really help it. Started this project last friday/saturday, didn’t really turn out as expected but then again it never does. My little studio still smell of chickpeas, glue and beans. So here we go, a little beans, sesame seeds, chickpeas and coffee  jewellery for everyone.

Paris is always a Good Idea. – Part 2

A The worst part of all this is going home. I mean, Who wants to leave so much art, sun, love and food behind!? It might have been a lot of first timers for me but defiantly not the last. Here’s some more random pictures from Paris.

Meet me in Paris

Last weekend had a lot of “firsts” in it for me. My first trip to Paris, My first Louvre walk, my first Crème brûlée, and my first legit utter of the words “Je voudrais un croque monsieur, s’il vous plaît” (ordering a freaking amazeballss grilled ham and cheese sandwich). Had been waiting for almost 10 years to say that xD . It might not look like much 2 the world, but honestly if you get the chance drop by “La Fregate” and grab a Coffee or a Coke and a Croque monsieur!

Anyway when back in reality I decided on making the weekend in Paris into 2 posts. Didn’t want to bore you with to many pictures at once.

So here we go! Enjoy Paris from a 35 mm lens!

The diapositive project

It’s after christmas now, that means that I finally can share one of the longest and sneakiest christmas project I’ve done so far. 2,5 months of dealing  with white lies, borrowing scanning equipment and hours retouching, noise, scratch and damage removal from almost 100 diapositives or in other words slides. Designing and developing you name it, I’ve done it!

It started with my Auntie talking about all the slides they had in the basement, we brought some up and her husband started talking about the pictures, looking at them trough the projector on a white sheet that was hung over the bookcase. I saw some funny pictures of dad, think he was about my age, and asked if I could borrow some of the pictures, so I could “show dad”. Little by little I started “borrowing” more slides, scanning them, give them back.

So here we go, let me present a mix of the pictures that got printed in the book, before and after, work in progress during the time and much more.

I’d like to thank the people who lent me equipment and lending me a last minute hand removing some dust particles when my hand cramped up haha, you know who you are! So If you have any old photos you want restored, give me a call and I’ll give it a try!

Stores and vendors – NYC part 3

Walking around china town, little Italy and other random streets in New york I found some cozy places and funny people. Some doing stuff like starting a fire in the middle of the street, others just sitting, relaxing, smiling or stressing over customers. I didn’t get that “There’s always a buzz going on in New York”. But I think I do now.

This post is gonna be all about the vendors and stores that fill our stomachs with delicious food and mysteriously make the extra change disappear from our pockets!
