It's aliiiive!

Another Antler lady is slowly coming to life. My day started a bit off when I had a strange reaction to some American cold medicine that made me feel like I had a bad coffee overdose (like that is even possible). It was supposed to be a half day off for drawing but when I came home and started to paint I was still too buzzed so it just didn't work! Frustrating!!! So I started to clean up an old sketch I had lying around so I would get something done. Later this evening it started to wear off so I actually got to paint a bit today!! WEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Hopefully I will get to finish this pretty soon so I can post it.

Out for a walk

Last night we went out to see our friend Martin, aka Pato, aka Siebenhaar as in Trolle//Siebenhaar play at Loppen. I had brought my Canon G9 to try out some stuff. I wanted to take some shots Martin style but it didn't really work as I wanted. My plan was to take some pictures inspired of how Martins old digital camera takes pictures, flash with long exposure, but that didn't work out so I tried some other things instead just for the fun of it. I donLink't really like taking pictures in the point-n-shoot way unless it's in a touristy kinda way. I like having the camera body and lens in my hand and looking through the viewfinder and I just don't get that same feeling of what you are doing with a small compact camera. The good thing is that it still has all the settings as a slr. It's not the best pictures I have ever taken but I wanted to post something from a good show. Check out Trolle//Siebenhaar.

Shark ethic

This shark does not know what is going on!! What is up what that stupid buoy?? Is the shark hunting the rubber duck or is it the shark who is the victim here? A lot of good and relevant questions to this piece...answers? None!

South Of Heaven Valby Hallen to be exact, I went to see Slayer last night. I had (still have) a cold but I had to go anyway since Mastodon was playing too and I had never seen them live!
Some one might have asked me and Amalie if it snowed in Denmark around this time of year and we might have answered noooooo, maybe a bit in January or Febuary but not november...well we have to take that back. I don't know if it was because Slayer was in town so the temperature went down but it had snowed all day and when we left Valby Hallen the ground was white and the road slippery. Nothing crazy but still sucks when you can't get a cab and you have a cold. Anyway. Here is a few Iphone shots of evilness!!!

News Flash

Here is the news bird with today's headlines.

Viking winter blows.
Yesterdays story about nice Danish weather turns out to be a hoax. After a cold, windy, gray day with no trace of sun we must conclude that the Danish winter is here and that yesterdays weather was just a scam to make the naive people of Denmark believe that there were still some time left to enjoy life before the long cold winter. What evil person is behind this is still uncertain.

Thermo coffee mugs is a hit.

Tests showed that having hot coffee, for a long time, is a good thing. The people who participated in this test agreed that there were no drips from these newly imported cups and that they could keep coffee hot doing a cold winter day.

That Awesome Magazine.
Rumours has it that the upcoming issue of Tattoo Artist Magazine, a highly respected magazine, will feature Uncle Allan. Sources close to Allan says that the layout has been approved and that it looks nothing less than amazing. Something to look forward to.

Finally here.
The long anticipated shirts from Uncle Allan has finally arrived. These has been on their way for quite some time now but has just arrived this morning in time for the Christmas shopping coming up. So who knows if there will be any soft uncle Allan presents under the tree this year. Since this news is so fresh we havn't had a chance to get a good picture of this new hot item yet but pictures and more info about how to buy this sexy fashion item will be announced soon.

The Palma Crest.
The ongoing project on Mr. Martin came closer to an end today after a 6 hour session. The project in a bigger piece on the front of him and portraits his dog, Palma, framed in a crest, surrounded by deers and leafs. Pictures of this will be released soon.

It seems that Jetlag can appear days after arriving from a travel. People used to believe that it was only the day after arriving in a different country that jetlag could appear.
On this news we will end this nights broadcast and go to sleep.

Good night.

Insert sound of a...wookiee

Well...I think this is one of those tattoos that looks way better in real life than on pictures. I was really happy to get to do a Star Wars tattoo and it was fun to do Chewie as a old school tattoo. It was a strugle to minimize the use of details and I actually had to redraw the design 4 times to make it more and more simple. Next time we go back to Japan we will do someone else from Star Wars on the other foot. Maybe Yoda. Maybe Greedo. Maybe Jabba...who knows?

This other piece was this little guys first tattoo and was originally ment to be a small piece on one side of his chest but Hata talked him into getting a full chestpiece. Why the owl had to be a viking I don't really know but it's cool! To be continued next year.

Not the picture post I was hopeing for but I promised a picture of a wookiee so here it was.


We are back in Denmark and despite the cold welcome (it was freeeeezing cold) last night, today turns out to be a pretty nice day. The sun is shining, our box with crap that we sent two days ago from Japan got here, playing with Lucifer (soooo good to have him back),had a nice breakfast and now we are just chilling in our appartment, listening to our new J-pop cd's . We got the new Yui and our new addiction, Meg. Our friend, the good Kapten Hanna, told us about this Japanese music video with this girl and these "dancing cats". After seeing the video we had to buy the cd so that is what is playing right now. Thanks Hanna!!!

Later I might look through some more pictures from Japan and maybe upload some here...maybe a picture of tha Chewbacca foot I did the last day at Ink Rat!! Maybe!

Until next time...Meg!!

Why not...(part 2)

...Put smiling faces on your pots and kasarols? This is not from the toysection. But hey, why not look at a happy pot while you make dinner?

And why not make pudding in big buckets? It makes perfect sense to me...and the Japanese!!

ummm....lack of internet connection made me forget my headline

Some more pictures from our day in Ikebukuro shot with my new canon 24-105mm lens. First we met up with Toshi at the station. Then he took us to this amaaaazing 9 floor book store where we didn't have neerly enough time or money to spend. We spend the most time on the ninth floor where the art section was. Found some really nice reference books and the rest will have to wait till next trip. After that we took our first trip to Tokyo Hands. For those who isn't familiar with this piece of heaven on earth, the fastest way to describe it is: What ever you need, they have! That store has (almost) every thing from tiny gears to kitchen ware to custumes to stickers that says that you aren't allowed to flip the table no matter how angry you new fishing poles to that strange piece of plastic that you don't know what is called but you need for that other thing...well you get the point.
But since the Tokyo Hands in Ikebukuro isn't as big as the one in Shinjuku we decided to go to that one too...just to see if we missed out on something and ofcause we found a few extra things. After that it was time to head back to Koenji and hook up with the Ink Rats. Scroll down a bit and see who the story continues.

Follow that little green coat

I have been playing with my newest toy, the canon 24-105mm lens that I got myself yesterday at this amazing camera shop in Nakano that also sells used stuff and usually in brand new condition but for less than half price. I just noticed a pattern when I looked at the pictures from our trip to Ikebukuro today. Amalie was in most of the pictures in one way or the other and sometimes more than other. I even captured a bit of other green things on our way. It was a good day by the way.

Raaaaamen Kudasai

I was wery sad to hear that my favorite ramen shop in Koenji (Maybe even Tokyo) has closed. But life goes on and what is a hero...or a Allan without his ramen so we had to try out a new shop in Koenji. I was happy to find out that this could be an ok substitude for my old shop. Not as good but it will do for now. Still pretty damn good.
