Nature on the plate

I was simply too busy for a blog entry last week. I still am but at least I can tell you what is keeping me that busy. Christmas is only two months away, and for a nature illustrator like myself that means painting nature on the plate. Here is a lutfisk, an age-old dish of the Nordic countries made from stockfish, nowadays usually air-dryed ling (Molva molva), and lye.

Desillusioning the masses

Those who have a romantic or idealistic view of a pristine past might be a little disturbed by this reconstruction: harp seal cubs being clubbed by a group of stone age hunters. Nevertheless this is a fully realistic scene and I am sorry to tell you it is still just as true in some parts of the world, despite the fact that modern survival is in no way dependent on methods like this.

Workshop

Time for another watercolor workshop in Skrylle, Skåne. I love being an illustrator but not because it fills my need for being among people. So twice a year I have these workshops for beginners, who also help me keep my mind fresh by asking so called “silly questions” - in fact the least silly questions you can ask. Call +46 761 335373 to join us on October 12th at 12.00 and 13.40 o’clock!
