Illustrations

I was asked again last year by one of the editors of the 14 Magazin, a magazine from Freiburg in southern Germany, if I like to do a couple of illustrations for two of his articles. Of course I said yes.

The magazine was published a few months ago but I only got my hands on a copy now.

First article is about the revival of vintage clothing and how it came back in style among 20+ somethings.

Second article which I quite enjoyed is about the pros and cons of watching TV vs online streaming. It argues that TV definitely has a surprise factor as you sometimes end up watching things that you would normally not watch. Also it provides a different viewing experience because you have to commit to a certain time if you want to watch something you are interested in.

Online streaming services are the opposite. Available any time and day, instant satisfaction is given. However, the tendency to binge watch is relatively high which might make us consume more than originally intended. Also the surprise factor is taken away as we usually choose what we want to see, therefore you might never get to watch that documentary about the Swiss rail way system that would have aired on your one TV channel at the time.

I also think that online streaming is more time consuming. Sometimes I can spend an hour going through the endless list of movies until I decide which one to watch. And I can definitely relate to the risk of addiction…  “Just one more episode of xyz and then I will go to sleep….. damn how come I have to get up in 4 hours already!?!?” But who hasn´t?

More work in progress…

I’ve been busy painting like crazy the last few weeks. So far there are 8 new paintings, but only 4 of them finished and still a few to go before I take off for the summer.

There’ll be an exhibition opening on September 1st in Reykjavík with hopefully all of my finished paintings ^^ Below is one of the works (that I finished in the meantime) in progress…

What do you think?

Humboldt

I took part in the Dawanda Design competition and my wallpaper was among those to be picked and soon to be put up on the wall in one of the rooms at the Meininger Hotel on Berlin!

The place of the hotel is the location of the former house of Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist and explorer. The Meininger Hotel is inspired by Humboldt with each of the rooms and wallpapers relating to a quotation by him. The one I picked was:
__________
Ich glaube meinerseits, dass man noch größeren Entdeckungen dann immer sehr nahe ist, wenn die Tatsachen in einen scheinbaren Widerstreit treten. 
An Julius Schmidt, Berlin, 30. März 1850
_______________________
All designs to be found on Dawanda.Mine is the one by Lumikukka or you find it in the gallery for Artworks 2011 ^^

Opening of the Hotel will be on June 19th, 2011with a Dawanda Design market from 10 – 6 p.m.

Address: Meininger Hotel, Oranienburger Str. 67/68 in Berlin Mitte

Go and have a look if you are in town. Pity I won’t  be able to make it coz I’m still in Iceland ^^
