the good, the bad and the ugly gnome

The good gnome feeds the horses...with stolen hay.
The bad gnome kills the cattle and the ugly gnome transforms himself into animals just to tease the farmer and his family.

werewolf, nightmare and their mother

I did some illustrations of fable creatures from danish folklore for an historical exhibition opening june 5th. at Sydvestsjællands Museum in Sorø. I did illustrations of the gnome, the werewolf/nightmare, the elfs and the ghost rider King Vold. I had to read through a bunch of old text in order to figure out how the creatures should look....'cause the museum didn't want me to go for the Hollywood version.

If you want to give birth to a varewolf, you should crawl through a dried and stretched placenta from a horse at fullmoon and call upon the devil.....then you will get a varewolf kid, if its a boy, and a (night)mare if its a girl.

A werewolf can get cured if he rips out a fetus from a pregnant womb at fullmoon...that'll free him!

For the the (nightmare)girl less bloody actions can cure soon as she has passes through the keyhole in order to ride some young innocent man (having no wet dreams...what so ever!), jam the keyhole so she can't escape..and at dawn when the daylight hits her skin she will transform into a human..

Bookcover: "Draw or die"

The publisher and editor of 'Aben Maler' Steffen Maarup asked if I wanted to do the cover for "Draw or die" in collaboration with him and rising star Signe Parkins.....and I was honored to be asked and did the inkwash drawing following Steffens guidelines. The book featuring deadly duels between 16 danish illustrators and comicbook artist will be release at the upcomming comicbook festival:, held here in Copenhagen in two weeks. I will be signing the book there together with the other 15 participants.
You can get a look at some of the earlier duels between artists by clicking here

....I hope to see some of you at the 22nd of May.
