Oslo IR

_DSF3255

In the past weeks I’ve been in Oslo, interning at Qvisten Animation which has been great! I’ve gotten to work on their upcoming Knutsen & Ludvigsen og den fæle Rasputin. They are a very nice bunch of people put whimsical studio divided in a basement and an attic four stories above.

But when I haven’t been interning I’ve been out and about in Oslo and have once again gotten to use my infrared filter. So here it is, Oslo in faux color infrared. Note that there’s a lot of color noise in certain areas. The reason is that I had to shoot with a very high ISO (3200 to 6400) because I didn’t have a tripod with me, so everything is handheld (one is even shot from the bus!).

A small sketch for the family who was kind enough to lend me their house for my three week stay here in Oslo. It simply couldn’t have been better. Thank you.

Disco Haircut

Disco Haircut

In the middle of the park in Annecy was this woman playing funky music while giving people a haircut. The hair literally flew off the man’s head as she quickly made one cut after the other, giving quite a show for the surrounding people, and the customer as well I presume.

Man playing on santoor

I passed by this man playing on his santoor in Annecy. It had a wonderful sound and was quite mesmerizing. I asked the man about his instrument and where he came from. He told me that he knew about the festival in Annecy, and that he was travelling around in different countries in his own car. Just playing wherever he came, without any grander purpose. A minute after the police came by and checked if he had permission to play. Since I don’t understand French I had no clue whether he would be allowed to stay, but I hoped. Luckily he was good and his tunes continued to follow us, as we walked away.

Myths From The Underground by Lawrence Marvit

Myths_From_The_Undergroud

Lawrence Marvit, my former design and color teacher, has just released his comic Myths From The Underground. You can read the first pages of it, right here on his website!

“Myths from the Underground” reveals what happens to the ancient gods once they are no longer worshipped. The fallen, downtrodden, and forgotten – they are still here – walking among us. But they’re powerless. And they don’t die of old age. So they’re just trying to make it through the day, like the rest of us. They’ve been doing it for thousands of years, affecting human history from the shadows. In “Myths From The Underground”, a world of urban grit and blue-collar magic, you will learn the true stories behind the gods and how they have shaped our world.

Astronaut Scarlet

A very quick animation I did for my friend Morten Lund Thulstrup to show off his astronaut character. I spent around 6-7 hours on it, since it was all the time I had next to school and before his presentation. It was a fun challenge to work so quickly – though the result still leaves me with stuff I want to fix and/or change. But I’d like to leave it as it is, simply because of the limited time.
