Comics special

This week I’ve been crazy about comics, cartoonists and eBay shopping.

:

Week 1

Still trying to get into the habit of writing weekly summaries of what I’m reading and making, here’s one for this year’s first week-and-a-half. It’s got spaceships and parrots.

:

More Horror

Still filling my Kindle with horror stories, here are a few more I’ve enjoyed recently.

:

Timed drawings

Just started on a 15-week program of creative exercises, taken from a book about cartooning. They range from spontaneous drawing to multi-page comic spreads. This week, I’ve been using a timer.

I ate’nt dead

Making excuses for not having updated this thing since August and rambling about creative cycles in the process.

:

The Horror

I’m binge-reading horror novels this winter. Not a genre I’m familiar with, and I hate horror movies, but ghost stories are cool. These novels have made my commute a lot more fun lately.

:

Weakend

No new drawings this week either, but all the more bugs, crows and comic books.

:

Joyous Exploration

Macaronis, testicles and a couple of new sketchbook spreads.

:

War, Hell and Art Quarrels

The commuter train’s running again after its summer maintenance break (poor thing), so there’s been a lot of time to read articles again. Here are some recent bookmarks.

:

Monsters, dog poo and sketchbook nonsense

The summer holiday is over and the little one has survived her very first days of kindergarten. Back to everyday habits, including this weekly post of links and drawings.

:

Populating Clamberville

Hand drawing the old fashioned way, on paper and iPad, to populate a city scene.

:

Hot week

Sweltering days for a Norwegian summer, but it’s against the law to complain about it, so I won’t.

:

Lunar eclipse week

Spent the week at our summer house in Sandefjord, celebrated my fathers 77th birthday and got a rare visit from my older sister and badass nieces.

:

Road Trip ’19

Drove Norway coast-to-coast to see some friends, a brisk 6–7 hour drive from Drammen to Bergen.

:

Burning down the house

I’ve only gone and done it again! Started the website from skratch! Yee-haw, nobody gives a crap! Here, have some links and sketches.
