Dystopia

Dystopia is a series of both illustration and typography prints, picturing a dystopian future. A lot of the inspiration for this project came from George Orwell’s 1984. But the main drive to make this came from current events in society with common trends as silencing opposition instead of an open discussion, biased press / media, censorship of the internet and privacy concerns.

Parallel Darkness

Parallel Darkness is an abstract illustration series focusing on the parallels between how we view and recognise figurative elements in contrast to the same elements being distorted beyond recognition under different rules and logic. The illustrations are all build up from materials in contrast to each other of either being very hard shapes and geometric, while others are more organic in shape. However they draw the parallel between the materials of all being shaped into their current state by either being part of either a living organism, or a “living mass”.

Countdown

An eventful and exciting year has just passed and I’m counting down the days until we move into a new year, with new and fun challenges ahead. The art style is inspired by technology and more specifically the classic TV test screens, as a little tribute to the Y2K craze linked to New Years Eve – the fear of computers crashing, losing connection and moving into the new and unknown era of technology controlling our lives. Happy New Years everyone!

Hello World: One year anniversary of traveling the world!

Amazingly enough, it’s already been 1 year since I left Norway on December 8 2013, starting with my first location of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam – and same place I would return to 1 year later. I have experienced so much, seen so much new, tried so much new foods and met a lot of good people from so many different countries. It has truly been an unique experience – which is not over just yet.

Sinner’s Passing

“Sinner’s Passing” is a personal illustration project. People easily pass judgement of others, even when not knowing how the person is fully like. They still stick to their first conclusion and might fully miss out on the person based on this. A passing might refer to both a pass of judgement as well as someone’s death. People keep their judgement until they pass away themselves, and maybe only at the last moment they’ll realise what kind of mistake they have done, which judgement they have passed too easily and how they might have sinned as a consequence of this.

TEN x SIXTEEN x SIXTY – Lervig Stensrud poster

This is a poster designed on behalf of Lervig Aktiebryggeri as their personal gift to Kristoffer Stensruds 60th birthday, one of Lervigs biggest funding contributors through the last 10 years the brewery has been running. In 16 years they have created 16 different craft brew, and this poster is a “thank you” for the past 10 years, a summary of the 16 brews and a congratulations to Stensruds 60th birthday. To accomodate all the different labels in 1 poster, it was designed in a very minimalistic manner, taking the colours from each label as a representation. The lines connected between the labels represent which series it belongs to, with their own 10th anniversary brew in the middle. The poster was printed offset on metallic paper with gold foil in a exclusive ONE ONLY print, to make it a more special present.
