I haven't been updating here as much as I should, I've been using Behance and Instagram instead to post my work. :)
Doesn't mean I won't keep updating this blog aswell, it just takes a bit longer :) Below a selection of recent stuff from my sketchbook, done directly in pen, enjoy!

In 2012 and 2013 I was fortunate enough to work as a set designer and layout artist on the 2D feature animation 'Trippel Trappel' (trailer can be found here). Now that the film has been released in theatres this october, I can finally share some of my design work I did for this film!
Above a selection of concept art and layout for backgrounds, I'll be sure to dig through my files and post some more stuff next week!

Really enjoyed working in this somewhat more realistic style, hopefully more to follow soon.
|Adventure Cove - Sunken City|
|Terra Inventa Avenue|
|Adventure Cove - Treasure Trail|
|Adventure Cove - Dark Water Ride|
These past few years I did quite a lot of theme park work, but due to NDA's the images I can not show in my portfolio.
Therefore, I decided to start developing my own theme park as a portfolio project, which has been a lot of fun sofar! Above the first 4 visuals I did, fleshing out the 'Adventure Cove' and 'Terra Inventa' areas.
I've been referring to this project jokingly as 'Edventure World' to friends, a name I'll keep until I come up with something better (which shouldn't be too hard, ha!).
I've been working on a ton of new stuff, in quite a wide range of styles. One of my favourite projects to work on is still my Swamp Maffia project, which we're trying to develop as an animated short.
Above 3 rather rough concepts to flesh out our frog town 'Undertow City', sketched directly in pen on paper and grey scaled in photoshop.
I thought I'd put up some snapshots of the pensketches aswell to give some insight in my work process. Next step in the process after grey scaling would be to create a tight line drawing, and flesh out everything in more detail.
More stuff coming up!

Here are 2 more paintings done for my project, trying to further develop the look and feel of my toad-filled world. First painting zooms in on one of the many food stands that can be found throughout the city (which I for now dubbed 'Undertow City'), while the 2nd painting shows their main means of transportation across water.
Also still doing my daily spit paints, will post another batch here soon!
Back to work,

|Robot Soldier Assembly|
|Feeding The Doves|
|Adventurer in the ancient temple|
As an exercise I've recently started doing a painting a day, as part of a Facebook Group called 'Spitpainting'. Above a selection of some of my favourite ones, the complete collection of speed paintings can be found up at my Facebook page. :)
