Benjamin Bach, a fantastic artist and dear friend of mine, has created an amazing Facebook group that challenges artists and their habits. It’s a two week challenge where a new challenge is posted every second week. This is something to hone in your skills and take them in a new direction. It is not only designed for painters, but any visual craft and medium you think of. It’s your job to take the challenge, give it a spin, and get inspired by everyone else. Don’t think of it as a competitor to Daily Spitpaint, more an addition that can help you further improve your skills.
Below is a picture of the first challenge.
A one month short film production made for Viborg Animations Festival, a local animation festival. It was made at The Animation Workshop in collaboration with Bath Spa.
It was the first project I directed and it was quite a learning experience. It was a fun experience and as with all projects, in retrospect there’s almost always things you’d like to do different. But overall I am happy about the mood and pacing of the film. And it was fun to mix up 2D and 3D, learning a bit of Nuke on the way. I also got to do both 2D and 3D animation on the project.
I decided to post two versions. The top one is the official as shown in the cinema (though, it didn’t have credits in the cinema) with music by Hannah Moylan. The second one is the exact same film, but with sound and music by Steve Crabb.It was really difficult to choose, but in the end I felt that Hannah’s music was a bit closer to the mood we were setting.

Working hard on the story for our game. For the past couple of weeks a lot of ideas have been thrown in the air, so now is the time to sort it all out and get back to a clear statement. Still some way before I reach the end, but eventually I’ll get there. The picture shows a rough arrangement of the first two acts of the story (not following the 3 act structure in this sense). Three more acts to go!
A collage of approximately 12 photos and a lot of photos of wadding photoshopped and layered on top. It was done for my sister. The original is about 53 MP and is made for a large wall print. The photo is shot close to my home on the top of a hill, from where you can see a part of the city.
The team is assembled and work has begun on our bachelor project feels!!! It’s a 3D adventure/exploration game where you must use sound to bring back light in the dark corners of yourself.
“uh, exiciting!” you say,
“yes, but that’s only the beginning” we secretly think
For most of us this is the first time walking into this unknown territory that is the art of game-making. And we’re superpsyched!

Volume 3 of Oh!Behave is released. The release has a strong focus on female artists and is inspired by the trobairtiz who were Occitan troubadours who would write, compose and perform their music by the court. You can head straight over to Oh!Behave and listen to the songs and download the album completely free of charge.
I am making Oh!Behave together with Rasmus Petersen and Sebastian Kjær. I keep the website up and running while they look for bands and takes care of other practical matters. For the past two releases I also did the album cover.
