This summer my favourite spot in town, Gåsebäck, is the place to be if you’re into streetart. And I’m not only talking about graffiti. The Global Street Elements festival will include the entire spectrum from music to street-sport. I was given the honour to create the graphic elements for the happening and really enjoyed translating all the aspects of the festival into graphic shapes and symbols.
I sent of a few sketches and we all agreed on a round shape (representing “GLOBAL”). The “GSE” lettering also stuck so I created a separate, secondary logo using as well.
If you’re in Helsingborg August 24-25 and looking for something to do, Gåsebäck has you covered.
In yesterdays post “Filmmakers hardcase for less than $35” I mentioned that I might cover the interior with vintage comic book pages. I spent about an hour thinking about it in bed last night and as I woke up this morning I knew it was something I had to do. I think it turned out really nice, and besides adding uniqueness to my cases, it should also give the insides some extra stability once it dries up.
For this I used about two 1970’s Wild West-themed comics and some wallpaper paste.
Ilse Weisfelt is a Dutch illustrator who also paints massive murals since her graphic shapes and clean style works well on a large scale. This interview was made for the ArtstreetHBG project and if you’re interested in how I set up and planned the whole interview (tech-wise and editing) you can read about it here.
Having kids is a hard work. They drive me nuts, daily, both of them. The chores never end, and I’m quite amazed that our washing machine hasn’t exploded yet. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make here is that you need some sort of outlet, no matter what it is that drives you crazy sometimes. My passion is film but at the moment, I don’t really have the time for it. Schools out for the summer and I don’t always work, so as I mentioned in my previous post “The lay of the land” , I’m trying to improve my photographic skills, especially when it comes to landscape photography.
I try to find some time on days like this one to just go, somewhere, and get inspired by my surroundings. Today I took the smaller roads and ended up in some random spots. Nic Cave provided the soundtrack today. I came home with a 150 shots and these are the ones that really worked for me today. But mainly, I got to clear my head a bit – and that’s what mattered today. Plus I got to try out some vintage m42 prime lenses (Mirage 135 / Tokina 35 / Makinon 28) which have been sitting in my bag for a while just waiting to be put to work.
