My first comic strip ever!

I've been spending some time lately laying the groundwork for a new comic strip. As a former journalist, the newsdesk lies close to my heart. Through the years I've observed quite a few characters – and their conversations. Therefore, my comic strip is called "Local news". It revolves around a set of main characters working…

Levanger harbour

It was time for a visit back to watercolour painting, so I spent an hour or so the other night painting a scene inspired by the Levanger harbour (the city where I live). The painting does not do the real scenery justice, but it was nice to get back to the medium again. This is…

Character 4

I think this'll be my last character for now. Which means that it's time to actually try and make an attempt on a comic strip... It may take some more time than just drawing up single characters, so there will probably be some posts regarding other mediums in the meantime. Until then, have a nice…

Unnamed character 3

Another character drawn for my potentially new comic strip. I don't know the name of this character yet, but I'm happy with how she turned out. Too bad she has no hands, though... 😉 Anyway, I'll figure out all the details in the end. I think I need at least another character or two before…

A comic character

I've been thinking about making an attempt on a comic. Like a more comprehensive comic, with short comic strips. I've always been a huge fan of comics and the whole drawing style, so why not have a go at it, right? I have some ideas about the general theme and story of it all, but…

A colourful goat

It's back to the animal drawings again, and this time it's all about the goat. I've never drawn a goat before, but I found one in a tutorial book I bought a few years ago and basically just tried to copy it's main features. First by pencil, then by pen. The pen drawing turned out…

Blue breaking wave

If you’ve read my last post, you’ll see that this painting is very much like the last one. Basically a copy of the motif. The reason for that is an urge to try and make it better. So this was my first attempt: And this is the new one: I do like the new version…

A Blue Wave

I had such a blast picking up the acrylic paint again in my last session, so I decided to have another go at it right away. Using acrylics I find that a looser style seem to suit my technique best, as I struggle to paint close details and make well blended color. Anyway, I really…

Back to painting!

It’s been a while since my last painting session. A lot longer since my last painting session using acrylic paint. So I decided to pick up my palette knife again. I didn’t really have a plan for what I was going to paint, I just wanted to use the medium again. So I spent a…
