Gåten Ragnarok

During the summer of 2011 I was asked to do some monster concepts for a Norwegian action adventure. The movie was "Gåten Ragnarok" which premiered last week.
At first the brief was pretty vague - as you can see I even did some bipedal designs based on Nøkken a.k.a. The Neck.
Soon after Ghost VFX in Denmark ended up creating the monster. And so far I have only seen a short glimpse of the final design in the trailer.
Anyway, here are some of the suggestions I came up with back then. Enjoy!

Volkswagen Animals

I just left Gimpville and I am now back in Qvisten Animation doing cartoony stuff. :)
It doesn't mean I never did any cartoony work in Gimpville. Here are some concepts for animals used in a series of spots for Volkswagen. Some were done last year and some this year. The spots can be found here.

There's an aquarium in work, and in that aquarium there is a fish and that fish looks something like this:

Halvgudene III

This is the book cover illustration I did for Arven etter Maél which is the third book in Mari Moen Holsve's fantasy trilogy Halvgudene (The Demigods). The previous two covers were done by some good, old colleages and friends of mine, Christer Sveen and Grant Regan.
The cover design has just been announced and the book will be published by Cappelen Damm some time next month.

40th World Wide SketchCrawl in Borneo

Last month Hanne and me spent a fantastic honeymoon in Borneo (yes, we got married on the 22nd of June!) and while we were there the 40th World Wide SketchCrawl took place.
Since I didn't expect to find any other sketchcrawlers at Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort outside Kota Kinabalu I arranged my own little mini SketchCrawl - both in size and duration.
There's an orangutan in the first sketch. That's because the hotel had it's own sanctuary where we went to watch the feeding this day. Since it was incredibly hot and crowded (and I rather wanted to observe the feeding and take photos) this is the only tiny sketch I did. The other pages were done in the air conditioned lobby a bit later during an afternoon shower.
The sketches were later photographed on the bed with my tablet and uploaded without any enhancement.
Hope you like them!

Last autumn I did this quick concept for this spot.
It's for the Norwegian bank DNB and was released a few days ago...
