JANGODOODLES #4 - SKETCHBOOK GALORE

Most of what I draw are doodles and ideas in my sketchbooks. In the past I didn't really post anything from my "treasure box of ideas", because I thought it wasn't good enough or uninteresting. But since I really love looking at other people's sketchbooks, I'm gonna start doing it more often. It might give some more insight in the ways I work.

USE-IT CROWD FUNDING ( ANIMATION )
















I made a silly animated video to support the crowd funding action of Use-It to make a smartphone app. They are a non-profit organization that makes great free alternative city maps for young travellers. It's a bunch of supernice enthusiast folks, so if you ever used a Use-It city map please consider donating a few bucks.

SLØW ( JANGTON FILM POSTER SHOW )







































SL
ØW.
The slowest movie ever made. A staggering 14 hours of Scandinavian arthouse film beauty about the struggle of the couple Björn and Lila who slowly seem to lose touch with reality. After their marriage and buying the barn they always wanted a discussion about the interior design leads to an existential crisis. How did they get there ? Why did they get there ? Who are they ? Why do they live on a floating ball in space called earth ?

This experimental movie is definitely not for the mainstream viewer, but for the lovers of Scandinavian storytelling and sufferers of insomnia this is a must see. To find the perfect beautiful Swedish landscape setting the directors went to that place where people dump all their christmas trees every year.

BOKTOR MAGAZINE (ILLUSTRATION)

The fantastic and creative folks of BOKTOR MAGAZINE came up with a super fun idea. For issue #2 of their magazine they invented a wacky story about a traveling island governed by boy scouts. They asked a number of artists to help shape what it would look like. I had to handle the part about mail the island would receive. More info on their website, with animations and all !
