Aliens Out Sailing

Here is a design for the comics I’m working on. It’s a raft loosely based on the kon-tiki, except it’s built by a couple of teenagers on top of an old floating pier. I got the starboard mast steps all wrong, but other than that I’m quite happy with it.

The Raft first sketches

Other than that I’ve been making a computer game to teach myself object orient programming. It’s called [Area 51 Blackjack][are-51] - where the aliens play. You can get it here for free for both Mac and Windows. Go get it now! Did some rough “pencil” sketches for it in ArtRage 2, a brilliant little program for natural media painting and drawing. Here is one of the aliens after he lost all his money playing blackjack. :)

Broke alien

I spent the last weekend doing web design for Skeiv Kunst (Pride Art), a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender artists who arrange a yearly exhibit of their work during Skeive Dager (Pride Week) here in Oslo. I’ll most likely be showing some of my work at this years exhibit, though I have no idea what it will be yet.
