Yesterday was the big film day. Wow, Ted & co had made their job so well! I was really happy of the result! The new fort up in the mountains end up to be the coolest part toghether with the small city behind. Will be great to start working with the material! The result will be a campaing for "Got Milk?" from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. Thanks a lot all guys who helped us out with it!

Model building for "Got Milk?"

Right now we at North Kingdom are building a miniature landscape for another "Got Milk?" campaign from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners (San Fransico). The result will be a online game where we will combine filmed material with 3D graphic. Ted Kjellson in the red t-shirt is helping us with this task here in Skellefteå. This picture is showing status 6 days before film day.

Some really early pictures from the model building. All photos are made by myself, when I was trying to get our client in San Fransisco to understand what we where doing ;)

ADAPT 06 & Journée Grafika, Montreal

I visited ADAPT 06 in Montreal this autumn with some of the world leading international digital art masters. I had the change to see some of Holywood´s best digital artists showcase the techniques behind their works in 2D & 3D.
The main reason of why I was in Montreal that week was becuase I where speaker at Journée Grafika, a web/design conference. At the conference we met Sid Lee (also speakers) who invited us to there office. They are the guys behind the magnificent MGM Grand site. Cloudraker was another nice agency we met and visited.

At ADAPT.06 I met a legend; my new topp favourite artist; Syd Maed! He has been designing futuristic concepts for corporations and the movies (including Blade Runner, Tron and Mission Impossible 3) since the '60s. He is making "retro future" in a way I have not seen anywhere else, and he does not use the computer!

Another great artist I had the chance to see was Mark Goerner! Stunning work from one who has make concept drawings for Minority Report, X-Men 2 and Superman Returns. Mark is currently working on James Cameron´s Battle Angel to be released in 2009.

Thierry Doizon gave a lecture in speed painting and I can just say "WOW!". His team was demonstrating the use of custom brushes and team work. Just f***ing amazing what they could make by drawing for 1,5 hour.

Some other really great artists I had the chance to see; Dylan Cole, Christian Lorenz Scheurer, James Clyne and Sebastien Larroude.

Father Robot

A first concept drawing of Father Robot. A priest robot for next version of DesignChapel which I hopefully will launch during 2007.

För att hästen ger allt

Rebranding of the V75, by my team at North Kingdom and the swedish agency Åkestam Holst. Great solution of how a filmed ad can be used on the net!
