A distant hello

Have almost blogged for half a year now, didn't want to make a big production of this celebration. Will have a small do at home, some deep fried swans and some oysters, per usual. Fancy a stroll down the wild side? Why not visit two New York based Artist.First Tommy Kane with wonderful studies of New York and the world. Then the russian born Peter Oumanski with his Poetic drawings and sketchbooks.

    Gosh, that neighbourhood looks a little rough (although very polite)!
    Congratulations and bon appetit! (Do you have red or white wine with swan?)

  11. gud vad jag önskar att jag kunde teckna som du! du är en mästare. vilken underbar fantasi och vilka karaktärer. det är en fantastisk resa att titta på dina teckningar.

    en fråga:
    hur börjar du på en sån där teckning som du kallar "futurum". var börjar det första strecket och varifrån kommer idéerna? tecknar du dom flygande djuren först och sedan hus och grejer som ligger bakom...? förstår du min fråga..?

    ha det bra, synd att jag inte var i göteborg på din utställning. dels för att det är 30 mil dit och dels för att jag fick reda på att den hade varit för sent.
    nåja, det kanske "går fler tåg".

  12. Tack
    Finns nog ingen regel, men i detta fallet var jag tvungen att tänka efter, började med ett hus i mitten utan någon egentlig plan, djuren kom till av sig själv. Jag gillar flygande djur, det brukar utvecklas organiskt, ibland blir det lite ångestfyllt.
    Det går nog flera tåg vi får väl se om det blir något i Örebro. :O)

    Amazing Swedish Guy

    All good things to you on this momentous occasion. This is a wonderful drawing. It's amazing the way you contrast massive architectural blocks with mischevious and rubbery animals.

    Please know that you have expanded my vision of what is possible with the pen. I walk in your shadow.

  16. Congrats on your sixmonthsaversary... the mind boggles at the size of frying pan you'd need to deep-fry a swan!
    What do you serve it with?

    riosinfw!!

  17. The frying pans get dwarfed by the massive size of our kitchen Rico. Swan is a dish best served on it's own.
    I'll be easy on the oysters Alina, I promise.
    Soo, perhaps in my dreams.
    Potato Print: Thanks very much, don't know about shadow though;)
