I can not paint but then again I can ...


I can not paint, but Photoshop makes it possible to do it even if you can't =)

I have always been fascinated by painted looks and comics, but I have never had any success doing it myself. Heres a method that I think works quite well, although timeconsuming, and there are a lot of strokes to paint ( like a real drawing ). The video is speeded about 20x or so, Looks kind of neat ( and fast ).

The model is the beautiful and great singer Jasmine Kara. Check her site site.


Here is a closer look.

Edward Hedenberg - paintings in oils and more ....



Here in Hokarangen we have a a small exhibition facility called "The Strange Window ". This week Edward Hedenberg is the artist, watercolor and paintings with oil crayons. Some examples below.





After talking to Edward a bit, about painting and drawing comics, he started to make some of his "ugly men" faces on a piece of blue paper. I found it fascinating to watch and asked if I could do a small poster of them. So I went home and scanned the piece of paper and decided to change the lines of the drawings, from ball point pen to something more odd, why not some doodles from Leonardo Da Vinci =) Strange idea but it looked kind of cool ( you need a microscope though to see that it is Leonardos writing ).

Quint Starkie - Composer



Quint Starkie is a musician, who creates music for commercials here in Sweden. Tv, radio, sound logos, whatever. I built the foundation of his website in 2004, but we have never taken any images.And now, the need for a press image was kind of urgent, so he came to my small "studio" and we fired away some shots. here are two of them.

The first image was taken with a Sigma 10-20. The perspective gets rather funny when aimed a little from above. Below I used the Canon 50mm 1.8 ( sharp, cheap, light and very plastic ).

"IMPOSSIBLE" VIEW FROM A CHURCH



Click on the image for a larger version.


Its not often you see a full 360x180 panorama image, and even more seldom a full 180x360 vertical panorama. It certainly looks a bit strange. Something Dali could have done. Or Escher.


here is a horisontal one, slightly more normal.

Here´s a link to the QTVR version of the panorama. Its made from old images from 2006, just moments before my bluesplaying piano buddy Freguz is getting married.
