winter portraits

All drawings done during the hvide sande trip, outside temperature around - 8 °C made indoor sketching very appealing... my models complied and dedicated themselves to their holiday activities, which consisted of drinking wine, watching tv, searching the internet for christmas recipes and crocheting socks.

hvide sande #1

i spent some days in denmark shortly after christmas, in hvide sande on the west coast.
this is a vacation village covered in snow, seen from the dunes, and below, the swans huddling together in the town´s harbour. it was so cold that the salt water froze.

portraits in bic

there´s something about these simple, ball-point pen drawings that appeals to me lately. Maybe it´s the winter that makes we want to desaturate everything. see you, colour, in spring.

toy cars

Actually, these are vehicles on the airport of Valencia. For the first time i´ve noticed how strange some of them look- asymmetric, bulky and square-edged, with some hidden, mysterious purpose i could not decipher.

kings of convenience

summer concert at poble espanyol, barcelona, july 2010. Admiring erlend oye´s sense of dress- who else can pull of a pink shirt with baby blue trousers? A lovely concert, and this is still my favourite video.

The old custom harbour in Mainz, snowed under. This building was used for wine storage and is now made into a centre with restaurants, shops and something they call "wine experience". It is a beautiful space right beside the Rhine and i´m looking forward to seing it finished.
