Speak!

I have to speak. I am not used to speak. I have asked Dorthe to help me. Derfor er der stimmeworkshop i mit atelier, den 17. juni! Læs mere her:

Se videoen og kom til tegnekursus!

Her er nogle indtryk fra min tegnekursus og en rigtig fin testimonial fra Lise Evald Hansen. Jeg håber jeg kunne vise noget af den helt særlige stemning med koncentreret arbejde og gode resultater. Her er en oversigt over de næste kurser.

Live Drawing: Moon Spirit

There seemed to be a connection to some mythological realm… . K. is weaving connections between the earth and the sky (as a metaphor for music, poetry and art), and between the future (her lively kids) and her ancestors from another continent. She is taking care of the requirements of the modern world (bright sparkly…

Making of…

I worked two days with Dorthe Eggertsen and Rasmus Kajhøj from arthotel on a stop motion music video. Here is a small clip from the unfinished video. Here is a peek behind the scenes. Here is a peek behind the scenes. This was when I started at throw paint on Dorthe. Dorthe looks beautiful, in…

Live drawing: Reluctant Princess

This is a sketch of B, who is in the process of breaking free from the beautiful little island where she has been asleep for too long Now she is done with finding herself and a gentle breeze is taking her out to explore the big wide world.

Live drawing: Relaxed celebration

Connection to the past, to other cultures, to nature is the vibe I got from N. Soft sparkles, coloured feathers, laughter and celebration. 

Live drawing: Mother of the planets

K. needs deep roots and stillness to balance out the lively and creative energy around her. In a way she is nurturing the planets.

Live Drawing: The Curious Collector

K. is  collecting random material and organizing it systematically, improving and beautifying her world, working towards her dream Read more about essence drawings here

Live drawing: The modular gardener

M. is fascinated by the ever-changing patterns of life that emerge around her. She watches them without holding on to them, attending to them as long as needed, but moves with ease to new places.

A touch of digital magic

Michelle had attended a drawing class in my studio last week. (You can see her portrait in the last post). Today she asked for help with a drawing of herself holding a rose and a whip (don’t ask me….) and a cat with a big bushy tail. The drawing is nice and lively, but the…

Drawing class

Yesterday’s drawing class was fun. I really enjoy to see how participants soak up the instructions and make really nice drawings – all different. And I wonder why this is not taught in every school! Why is drawing considered “fine art” and not “communication skill”, like writing? We worked hard and concentrated, but there was…

Image streaming

I found a website called “Project Renaissance ” by Win Wenger. He is proposing to use a technique he calls “image streaming”, to enhance intelligence and creativity. It is basically letting images come to your mind and describing them while they show up. Interestingly, this is is exactly what I did constantly when I was a…

Webinar sketchnotes

   The other day on the train I watched a lovely webinar that Amir Karkouti held about how to run a Facebook group, and made some messy sketches. Thank you DSB Danish Railway for free internet on the train!

Jammed head versus clear head

This drawing is inspired by a little text by success and resilience coach Sara Priestley: “Jammed” head is likely to be looking “outside” for reasons and fixes. “Clear” head is likely to feel happier and have more confidence. Big generalisations. The key thing is, both are normal. We move between them as naturally as breathing…

Your life purpose in three easy steps?

I did this drawing a few years ago, after YouTube showed me the Ted Talk by a guy called Adam Leipzig. I guess it was in one of the phases

World canvas

This is my new really big, really ugly chair for my studio. But, transformation has begun.

Ordinary evening

Independence

I couldn’t draw for a few days. Then I caved in and bought a new pencil. In my next newsletter I’m going to tell you the brand I’m using.

Two ways

I have been working on my soon-to-come online drawing class – and for some reason it just didn’t happen. I couldn’t get myself to concentrate, I was facing technical problems, it just didn’t click.

Summer memories

Sketching a scenery connects you in a deep way.  While you’re sketching, and later when you look at the drawing. I hope Ibster, Hunhans and the others are having a great time  hunting worms in chicken heaven.

Drawing classes are FUN!

After yesterday’s drawing class in my studio I think I am about to get passionate about teaching to draw. Everybody can draw, given the permission, the right tools and a few hints. (Don’t turn feet upwards!)  

Focus

I really want to finish my little online-drawing class. I also want to do more graphic recording.  I DON’T need more ideas for t-shirts. On the other hand – it is FUN to play with these blobs…

Don’t overdose

I have kind of a love-hate relationship with Pinterest, Instagram and other sites that lead to picture-binging. A little dose might be fine, but  most of the time it makes me less productive.

A sad day.

Work-life balance

I really have to get back to work now.

Manifest your reality

i Love painting.

Two wings

Thoughts – and the associated  feelings –  go up and down. There seems to be a natural fluctuation, and no way to control them. But that doesn’t have to keep you from doing your thing. Maybe you even need the “bad stuff” in order to fly?

Bad art day today

  Yesterday I sent out an uplifting and inspiring newsletter. Today it didn’t go so well.

Automatic writing

I don’t know yet what to do with these glyphs… I guess they will show up on a painting sooner or later.

Listen to your hands, not your thoughts

If I would always listen to my thoughts, I would never get anything done. All I get from thought is: 1) Fantasies how great everything is going to be, and then 2) a devastating critique how what I am doing is not meeting the standard from point 1) The funny thing is that my hands…

Ask your hands

What is your why? What is your life purpose? What is it you want to give to the world? These questions show up time and again, and seem to be important. And I haven’t found a satisfying answer in decades. Everything I write sounds contrived and somehow wrong. On the other hand (!) it looks…

My webshop is ready!

Take a look! And here is the wall calendar with Lill creatures.

Happy new year!

Drawing is magic!

What if  you can simply draw what you want into your life? Wouldn’t that be a fun experiment? Make a wish-list while using the creative part of the brain, instead of the boring old language center. I don’t know if it works, but I can guarantee you’ll have fun, improve your drawing skills, and train…

Make a webshop

I’m exploring different platforms. Haven’t decided yet which is best for me. Here is my preliminary Redbubble shop.

This was lots of food! But I’m looking towards the new year full of energy. This will be a fun year. If I manage to get up from the sofa, that is.
