Salmon For "Visit Norway" Poster

The trees are turning green here and the beauty and freshness of the long-awaited spring give me energy and interest to blog again. Sorry for my month absence.
Today and a couple of weeks further I plan to post the parts of the advertising poster I did for the "Visit Norway" contest. The main award is, actually, visit to Norway for 3 days. The winner will be announced on 14th May. Meanwhile I try not to think about the contest to make the victory happen))
There are no more Norwegian salmon in our shops due to the politics. But my memories are strong.

Have you seen Marina Abramovic"s "The Artist is Present" documentary? It is about her performance in MOMA when she was siting still for three month looking into faces of the strangers. So impressive, about devotion, madness, sacrifice, stubbornness, talent of the true artist. Already several years I can not forget it. Here is the link to Youtube trailers. If you want full movie, I can probably find the link.

This guy was one of the many who sat in front of Marina.

Figure Drawing

 I keep beating my head against the thick brick wall of learning figure drawing. The wall does not care)))

The last page in the sketchbook which leads to a little break in my birds' drawing obsession.

Look at Me

I keep thinking that we are the part of some global experiment, the sand on the ocean shore, moving with the waves. 

Let's add them a war and see how they manage.
Let's allow these two meet at last and see how long they survive together.
Let's see how they survive this crazy politician.
Oh, it is time for earthquake.

This way all local troubles turn into the way to laugh and to marvel the unpredictable ideas of the players.
I am sand on the ocean shore.

Nestling and a Little About Perfection

I like to watch a lot of pro artists' videos, to learn and to enjoy their process.

Recently the woman turned on the projector and projected the photo of facial image to the wall with canvas. Should I say that the final drawing looked perfect?

The same day the boy in the video took his camera and made the photo of fruit salad he was eating. Then, in Photoshop, he used the beautiful colors of fruits as the background reference to the comics he worked on. The final work looked so color balanced.

When I use other people's photos of birds like source of inspiration and directions, do I cheat or is it a mainstream? And the awareness that perfect artists do not exist is so very calming to me.
