when politicians gain weight.




I did the backcover cartoon/illustration for the internal magazine within the Danish Ministry of the Environment. I did the first cartoon of the minister in may 2008 and the second one, where he is shaking hands with the queen, in february 2009. Within these 8 month in office the minister chnged his look. Either being in power is making him gain weight or maybe he is just swollen up like a baloon due to all the hot air politicians are so full of.

a book cover in progress



Back in 2006 I illustraded Kenneth B√łgh Andersens superhero bookserie Antboy, for young readers. The books have become very succesfull, and is now printed in Norway and will come out on the swedish market in the fall. Due to the big succes, the three books will reprinted here in Denmark and come out in a one big volume, and therefore I had to do an illustration for the new bookcover. The type and design will be handled by Leo Scherfig, the Legalizer. Click on this link to see cover and content from the bookseries.

The process for this cover has been like this: a two hour lunch meeting with the editor, the author, the graphic designer and me with paper and some markers. Two hours later and four sheets of paper with doodles on, we had agreed upon a design. Antboy jumping into the air with a powerfull gesture. The colors were limited to black, white and red.
The original inkdrawing measures 60 cm by 35 cm.

Thanks for reading.
