Happy March 8th!
Scourge of the Empire!
Why have these men flayed and decapitated Ewoks?! And then to wear their skin, sick I tell you, SICK!
I totally love this! I used to sing in a death metal band and I just booked two weeks in Tokyo, it’s gonna be epic.
More info here… “Somewhere in Norway there is a metalhead in corpse paint standing in a forest crying tears of blood.”
What they want to do
One of the best things at Sci-fi Con is the exhibition of movie props. These are the actual stuff from the first and the last scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark!
Every year at the Sci-Fi Con I make my rounds, when I have a break from signing my books, asking all the vendors if they have gotten a figurine of the nurse from Silent Hill. This year it happened, it has arrived. It’s gorgeous, horrific… And pricey! We’ll see by the end of the day if I convinced myself I really need it.
Working at a café with kimwandersson.com, hoping genius is contagious.
Sent first draft of my space adventure comic to my US publisher yesterday! Hope they like it…
hoppspindel asked: Jag måste bara säga att jag älskar dina serier! Kul att hitta dig här på tumblr! :)
Du är för snäll! Nu kommer jag göra ännu fler, ännu bättre serier! Tack!
This is what I’m talking about! I’m working from home today and one of my jobs is to finally read the super deluxe edition of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind that I bought. Might also go buy a watercolor kit like the one Miyazaki has, and start growing a beard like he has… you get the drift.
Here are more pics to swoon over…
Hayao Miyazaki’s advice on how to use transparent watercolors in the booklet of the Ghibli Museum Sketching Set.
Title: My recommendation. Transparent watercolor is good.
“transparent watercolor has a strong habit”, “do not paint stickily and paint after wiping the extra paint and water off”, “paint thinly the bright part”, “had better not use white”, “paint other color after under color has dried”, “let’s mix the color and use it.”
Light the wool which protrudes on a new painting brush.
Anything is fine for a water vessel.
A retractable knife is enough for the pencil sharpener.
One 2B pencil is enough for the pencil.
Divide the palette into seven zones: Bright, Dark, Black, Green 1, Green 2, Blue 2, Blue 1.
Do not use the eraser.
Do not draw a guideline for a picture.
“these painting materials are enough for a 2-week trip and preparations for a movie.”
Found this on Nausicaa.net along with the news that the new Takahata and Miyazaki Ghibli films for next summer are expected be announced this week!
Advice from the master! I’m so getting in to this now… the model sheets for my new sci fi-comic is gonna look like a freakin’ Ghibli artbook!

Went to this awesome exhibition with my friends and colleagues, Sara and Karl, today. Sculptures from the African civilisation of Ife, the legendary homeland of the Yoruba people in Nigeria.
Don’t be surprised if you find these dudes in my sci fi-comics soon.
