Illustration

The illustrative worldview.

I work with many different materials such as pencil, charcoal, brush, ink, spray and digital drawing board.

My favorite drawing / painting material is probably pencil and watercolor. All Scriptoriumworks of art are painted with watercolor. My great inspiration is Swedish Carl Lasson and my mentor and teacher of coloring, is the cartoon creator Peter Madsen, who is the creator of the well-known Danish cartoon Valhalla.

Throughout the 1990s (before the digital age), I work a lot with fantasy characters and landscapes. I often got inspiration for my designs from the wonderful autumn forests. Throughout my youth, as often as possible, visited beautiful Sweden with my childhood friend Boris Zeichner. For a number of years, it was a tradition that the autumn holidays took place in the Swedish magical forests. Boris had inherited a lovely little cabin deep in the dense forest where inspiration was everywhere around me. Every time I have visited this sacred place I have been producing and working from early morning to late evening, interrupted only by long walks in the beautiful Swedish autumn forest.

Figure design

I have created many different and rather strange fantasy creatures and classic cartoon characters. As a young man in the 1980s, I tried to create a career as a cartoonist. I managed to produce adult and child stories. One of the highlights was undoubtedly my teacher and mentor Peter Madsen who taught me a lot about cartoon coloring.

Was briefly in contact with Disney / Egmont here in Denmark. However, they did not need more cartoonists, but they were looking for good storytellers. Something I wasn't exactly interested in at that particular point in my life, and eventually my career as a cartoonist stopped. I illustrated a pile of associations and member magazines instead. With the new computer entering the mid-90s, the pencil and brush were replaced with the mouse because there was so much demand for website design.

Unfortunately, I don't often draw so much anymore, but on the other hand I regularly paint for my artworks which go to www.scriptorium.dk
