Robots VS Monsters underwater

If you have liked my page on facebook, or follow me on twitter, you are probably aware that I have just been a part of the Drawn Chorus Collective exhibition in London. So I guess that is pretty much what this post will be about 🙂 The name of the Exhibition was AHOY! A nautical illustrative imagining of mysteries and tales of the sea.

Me and my friend Hector setting up the window display for the show.

For this show, I was inspired by the crappy horror movies that I love so much, and decided to draw my very own set of VS posters. I had a lot of fun naming them, which I am sure the people who make these sorts of movies do as well :p

Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla

Ultra BoomPowBot VS Giga Sharkinator

Killer Bionic Botswarm VS Mega Megaconda

Lord Lazer Cyborg VS Über Tentacle Menace

I got a little carried away when drawing the details in the robots, adding all sort of stuff. I have even drawn a little TV screen showing King Kong running on TCM on the Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla one. I did add a few other small homages to different popular culture, but you will have to find those for yourself :p

And here is a picture of me with my illustrations on the wall.

The Espacio gallery (where the show was held) was nice enough to make a video from the opening night which you can view here:

I am really happy with how the show went! I got to see a lot of great work from the rest of the Drawn Chorus Collective, met a lot of new great people, and even got to say hi to one of the readers of this blog 🙂

Long Mermaid is Long

Exciting news! I’m taking part of yet another Drawn Chorus Collective show in London this August! 😀 There will be more info on this soon, but in the meanwhile, why not have a look at this perky mermaid? She is to be part of a pack of postcards that has been drawn by the Drawn Chorus Collective artists and will be sold at the show.

I have no idea why her tail is so long…. Maybe she is some sort of Mermaid Rapunzel hybrid?

Something wicked this way comes

I guess it is about time that I upload my contribution to The Greatest Show on Earth! So here it is. As you might already know, the theme for the show was circuses, freak-shows and fairs from literature. The book I chose was Something wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury. I Loved the book, and found it really difficult on deciding on what part to illustrate.

After a lot of thought, I ended up with drawing a giant version of the carrousel that would add or take a year of your age for every round you rode with it. Finding it hard to explain this, but I’m pretty sure this makes a lot more sense to those who have read the book… So going with that, I ended up drawing a few of the evil circus people riding it, getting older and younger.

The most fun part with this drawing was drawing the characters. Here are a few of my favorites.

The evil clown with the worlds biggest camel toe.

The bearded lady flashing some hairy legs and the illustrated man-baby.

And here is some of the details on the actual carrousel.

The Greatest Show on Earth was a success and I had a lot of fun! Here is a video from the event by Adam Clague, one of my fellow members from the Drawn Chorus Collective.

Greatest Show on Earth!

The Greatest Show on Earth is almost done, and I have finally gotten around to add a few pictures of it. A few meaning two pictures that is :p I tend to forget taking pictures when I’m having fun. But I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this problem.

This is the window to the gallery.

And this is me standing in front of my work. We were all supposed to wear circus themed costumes.

If you had planned to catch the show and still haven’t, today is your last chance. It will be open from 9am to 4.30pm. You can find the address and more details right here:
