Drawings from the play "Ordet"

Earlier on this month Theatre drawer Flemming Nyborg from Politiken, invited me to come with him to a play at the Royal Theatre and sit with him and the other newpaper theatre drawers: Tove Nørgaard (JP), Erik Werner (WA) and Claus Seidel. The play we were going to draw was "Ordet" by danish poet and priest Kaj Munk. A play about having true faith in God and miracles.
It's a huge challenge to try and capture not only the characteristics of the actors, but also the drama, from first row. Well this was my debut, I had a lot of fun and hopefully I will get better by time, so it'll look more like a drawing and less like a wanna-be poster.

Thanks for stopping by

Johannes ligner en af de unge slacker tegnere henne fra arbejdet. Jim hedder han. Han har det samme lidt fraværende udtryk i ansigtet....Jeg vidste ikke at du kendte Jim, du har hvertfald ramt ham rigtigt godt...

Hey Erik, many these drawings convey a wonderful beauty & power in gesture.
