My Bio
I'm a teacher in Art & Design, currently employed at Vågen high school in Sandnes, Norway.
As you may percieve from my Id picture, I'd like to portray myself as an outdoorsy kind of guy. At the same time, my vacant, spiritual gaze is supposed to hint some artistic ambition.

As a teacher I try to absorb at least some knowledge within most genres of art, but my personal choice in motifs have always revolved around "youthful" themes as dragons, trolls, mystical forests etc. This has, not surprisingly, often proven a benefit in my work with artistic teens at school. (Though, I might at times be in peril of being branded as unserious and immature for the same reason.)
I was introduced to dA from my students during a chat regarding such themes,and have later on been using this excellent site to find examples within different techniques and medias.
Discussions with my students have occasionally led to me being challenged to join myself. I resisted this for a few years, but now even the school management encourages us to join the web-societies, for to keep ourselves "updated" in relation to the environments young people frequent in today...

And so, since I refuse to join facebook, here's my doodles!

Hope you'll all enjoy them! :)

Trees, Trolls and The rest

Trees, Trolls and The rest

I've been in here for a little while now, and my favourites-gallery is now filled with pictures that in my opinion deserves some extra attention. When analyzing the contents, I find that I have a tendency to favor motifs that coincides with my own interests and taste. Therefore, for to make it simpler for myself, I'm going to make it a series of features where the themes are based on the categories within my own gallery: Trees - Where the contents revolves around nature, landscapes, forests and trees Trolls - Featuring monsters, dragons and extraordinary beasts and creatures The rest - Where I put the stuff that don't fit in with the previ

A lot of thankyous and some forgivemes

I had ventured dA just for a short while, before being blessed with a premium membership by the excellent group Heavy Damage(http://heavy-damage.deviantart.com/.) I had great fun with this, but because I'm sort of a slow learner and have little experience in dA yet, I don't think I managed to exploit this opportunity to it's full extent. Yesterday, when logging on, I registered with a shock that I once again was a premium member, for THREE months, given by an anonymous donor. :shocked: Well... what can I say? Again, I'm surprised and glad, honored and flattered! And, though it's hard to give a proper thankyou to a benefactor I don't know the
