The Magic Hat !

I have stopped teaching my comic class after 8 years of teaching comic and animation for kids. I have decided that it was time to focus on my own projects. So this is my last cover page for the annual booklet.
All the characters are from various personal projects I'm working on. So it is a kind of "to do list" for me.

This cover illustration also depicts "The Magic Hat Game" we played alot i the comic class. A game where all participants write a note with a character, a note with a location and a note with a sentence. The notes are thrown into 3 different "magical" hats and mixet. Each participant pulls three notes out of the hats and make a comic that contains what it says on the notes. A game that is both fun for kids and professional illustrators.

The Herlev-Billedskole logo (Herlev Art school) was also designed by me.
Im going to miss that place!

a Seehorse can't swim!"

"Marco Macaco" Storyboard / Animatic

"Hardcop" the bollywood intro of the movie



This is the Animatic of my storyboards i did working on the "Marco Macaco" feature film.
This sequence was inspired by an old bollywood movie.
I had a lot of fun working with Jan Rahbek (the director) on this sequence and he gave me a lot of creative freedom!
The "booty shake" was added later by my supervisor, to hookup with a funny dance move a animator addet in the next scene.
enjoy!

***Spoiler Alert***  The next 2 videos will reveal vital story points, that may ruin the movie experience

"A Hero Rises"

 


In this sequence Marco sings the "endure the pain life gives you" song, which he learned from the pirates.
He then stops Carlo, that is inside the robot casino, from zapping Lulu in to a mindless zombie.
This storyboard is the first version of many passes to the final storyboard. The sound is from the last version, so the timing is a bit of because of the changes that was done.
It was mainly the order of the shots thats were changed, but some shots were added. you can go to the movies to see which one ;)

"Last Goodbye" ***Spoiler Alert***



This is the first version of the ending sequence of the "Marco Macaco" feature film.
The beautiful drawing of marco´s boathouse was done by my supervisor Dan Harder.
After i was moved on to develop and storyboard on the "Marco Macaco" tv-series. the rest of the storyteam made a lot of changes in the ending sequence, so its a lot funnier now. Go to the movies to see the awesome result !!!

Mafia Boss

I had the pleasure to make this concept design for Tactile Entertainment's new awesome game Mafia Planet. It can be downloaded free for iphone here and android here.
The drawing is obviously strongly inspired by Marlon Brando's "Don Vito Corleone," but I made him a little shorter and fatter. The name of the game was at that time "Crime syndicate" since altered to "Mafia Planet", I assume to get more downloads. Try it, it´s a lot of fun.

CROCODILE COMIC





Photobucket


In my comic class, I gave the assignment to do a comic front page containing a crocodile. But before starting, the students should draw a real life croc, to be able to make a more original character design, based of reality and not other cartoons.
I made the assignment as well, drawing the table with the students drawing tools and inserted a texture of their oilcloth.
The Herlev-Billedskole logo (Herlev Art school) was also designed by me.

For the croc I tried a new coloring technique and made a animated Gif of the process
Enjoy
