Drabant Vol. 2 Teaser

Check out the Teaser for Drabant Vol. 2! Release date: October 2014


Drabant vol.2 (preliminary cover)

Did i mention that me and Øyvind Holen has started working on the sequel to the first Drabant book? Well, we have and currently the entire story is being storyboarded. I've also been doing a few drawings just to get started. I highly doubt that this particular one is gonna get used, but it got me started anyway. The first Volume of Drabant did pretty good and sold out in 3 months. A second edition is out as we speak and it has even been sold to Denmark. I hope Sweden is catching on soon. Keep looking out for updates! Check out our Facebook page for news! I probably have some more new stuff lying around and will be sure to post them here soon.



Last sneak-peak. It is going to be printed in a matter of days now.

Comic-book project (Update2)

Production is now in full swing. Special thanks goes to Graffiti-writer Power of Seres crew for giving the characters in this story their particular style of writing.


hiphop - Faktaløve (childrens book)

Øyvind Holen has written yet another book about Hip Hop. This one is slimmer and is aimed for a younger group of readers than the last one. The target is 7-9 year olds. It didnt require as much art as the other book, but i managed to do a few illustrations in it as well as the cover. Here is one version of the cover:

The cover that was used can be seen HERE. Personally i prefer the colors in the one above + the fact that RUN DMC and Chuck D is in it:) But who'd wanna learn about those old-timers these days, right?



hiphop - graffiti * rap * breaking * dj-ing (2009)

This book is written by Øyvind Holen and illustrated by me. It's a factual book for children about the different elements in hip hop (target group 8-14 Years).

There are cartoons inside (not pictured), but i feel that they were a little rushed and could have been better.

All these drawing were done pretty small (A4) so what you see in the book is the original size(!). They work allright, but i cringe when i see the rough lines!

Some of Norway's Rap elite...

With this book both Øyvind and me won the award for best factual book for children and youth from the Norwegian  Ministry of Culture. That was pretty cool.
