A few days ago I posed for Sine Schmidt Thomsen’s cool, futuristic streetwear inspired by Egyptian garments. The theme of my outfit was the representation of a goddess, with lines borrowed from temple geometry and ancient, Egyptian symbolism.
Sine is fantastic and her designs are absolutely gorgeous.

I was a photographer at Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque’s event in February: Wicked Waltzes at the Russian Cabaret Verboten.
“Ice crystals on the walls begin to melt as the beautifully costumed participants arrive. The Russian Cabaret Verboten is open and welcomes its exquisite guests, clad in the latest fashions of the 1930′s in Moscow. ”
Grotesque Burlesque is based largely on audience participation, and is not just about the shows. There were dark portrait artists, dancers teaching everyone to waltz, tarot card readers, Kissing Booths and a spontaneous crowd performance of “Kalinka” blowing the roof off Park Nightclub. The guests with their elaborate costumes and of course the spectacular performers made the evening truly magical. Featuring: Miss Diana, Kitty Sincane, Sophia Disgrace, Tigana Tollikonikova, Michiel Tange Van Leeuwen etc.
Yesterday I participated in the first ever Shayla Games at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, Denmark. Besides sneaking around and taking pictures of a brilliant collection of brainiacs, I also helped showcase our Eucroma video game Zero Days.
Several amazing industry frontrunners were represented at the casual event, such as Unity, Oculus and Sony. The showcased games ranged from absolutely hilarious to seriously impressive and everyone got to enjoy a dramatic rubber dinghy race in the harbor. As a fun bonus, a small group of talented boys (traitors) from our Eucroma project team who call themselves Headspider, won the 2 hour game jam. Hooray!
Zero Days is a game currently being developed at The European Cross Media Academy, also known as Eucroma.
The game is a post-apocalyptic survival-horror 2D puzzle, where you play as a hacker who has to help the main protagonist Erika escape from the horrible virtual world she is imprisoned in.
I currently work on the game as a concept artist developing characters, environments, as well as assisting with look definition and themes for the game world. I also work as a 2D artist, creating textures for the 3D models of our characters and props in Mari.
