Dreadlocks 101

Not your regular art post. This one will be about dreadlocks. I’ve gotten lots of questions about my hairstyle over the years and thought I’d post some info for anyone who wants to get knots. Back in 2010, when I was young, naïve and scared, I spent a substantial amount of time on finding ANY…

Egyptian Streetwear with Sine Schmidt Thomsen

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.

Album artwork: Badge: If I Could Love I`d Love This

An excellent album that I’m proud to have been a part of is finally out! Badge‘s “If I Could Love I’d Love This” is packed full of auditory explosives and has been scoring great reviews already. You can listen to a few songs on their page. I worked on the album art and design for…

An Interactive Installation: The Tree of Sounds, part1

I figured it’s about time to show a little bit of what I’m working with these days besides my creative projects. I have recently started my Masters Degree in Medialogy at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, where we are to develop semester projects in groups. At the end of the semester we will have made a…

By The Water with Andrea Coan

The spectacularly talented photographer Andrea Coan took some photos of me around Milwaukee, WI, USA, a few years ago. Edited by me (not that the photos needed it though).

Abstract Tribal Scorpio

The client wanted a small design for her foot. The motif represents her astrological sign, the Scorpio. It is abstract enough to pass for a decorative tribal motif at first, but upon close inspection it becomes obvious that there is a scorpion in there somewhere. I have included some of the different versions I experimented…

Good vs. Evil sleeve + half-torso design

Good vs. Evil tattoo design The finished sleeve As with most large scale pieces this particular design has a lot of intricate, interweaving elements. The client approached me with a request for a half torso + half sleeve design as a celebration of accomplishments and personal victories, as well as a reflection of overcoming struggles…

Monochromatic dinner

One of the first assignments we got when I started my B.A in Digital Design in 2009 was to create a monochromatic dinner. My group decided to take on the colors white, red, black and green and we each cooked food that had the same color -mine was red. Luckily, the presentation was more important…


I had the pleasure of working on the graphics and promo art for the game Cyklus by Eastasiasoft, which is available on iPhones, iPads and Android and is also to be ported to PC and Macs soon. This was in many ways an ideal project since I was given the freedom to create what I…

A design for the forearm. The client wanted a seal to represent his family name, which starts with the letter R. The sign was to show energy, activity and the inspiration to push forward, while honoring the client’s roots. The design was to be kept simple and minimalistic.    

EP artwork: Rune Braendgaard

EP artwork I designed for a solo artist called Rune Braendgaard. It opens up like a little brochure booklet. The different layers symbolize peeling away the artist’s outer shell, inner desires and reaching the music: the flower. The final image is the fusion of all three phases, a metaphor for completeness. All layers were hand-painted…

Marquesan tribal demon half-sleeve

The client wanted a traditional Marquesan tattoo to reflect his story about overcoming hardships. After enough research I found the necessary symbols and style to do his story justice. The central piece of the design is the demon head being caged in by rows of shark teeth, which represent strength and protection against threats and…
