Tokyo 2018

So I went to Tokyo with Jens a couple of weeks ago! For so many years I told my self, I want to go to Tokyo, and guys! I DID IT! And it was the coolest trip I’ve made so far. 1 day in and I already knew that this wouldn’t be my last visit.

I don’t know where to start, the food, the culture, the hype, the people, the lights! I’m gonna let the pictures speak for themself. I also made a movie about the trip, check it out if you haven’t seen it <3

Hope you like the post! <3

Work of art? Art for work?

A while back I asked my workmates if I could take some pictures of them and make “little-big-people”art. After quite a few hours or should I say a couple of days behind the computer, alot of figuring out the things that to me represented each individual and a little magic here and there. I finally finished the posters. And I’m quite satisfied with the outcome!

Hope you like it!

 

Want to see some more? Check out this post from a while back :D

The vow renewal!

A while back I had the opportunity to witness my first wedding vow renewal. It’s hard to try to explain in words, the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you see a couple that’s been together for 60 years still look at each other like it’s love at first sight.

Add in some family, love, reminiscing about the past and looking forward to the days coming,  and you have yourself the most “on point” life recipe you can find!

I’d like you to wish you the best of luck in the future and say thank you for letting me be a part of this amazing moment!

 

Hope you all enjoy the pictures!

Amy Winehouse

You know how you have to be in a certain mood to listen to a certain kind of music? Well I’ve listened to Amy Winehouse before, always loved her voice! But it hasn’t been until now or during this week that I’ve really come to appreciate, or how can I put it…” feel” her voice and lyrics. It was like everything struck me at once. Isn’t it weird sometimes.

Any who I just decided on dedicating a post to Amy and to tell people to go and listen to the album Back to black!

Keeping this short I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas with lots of love!

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.

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.
