Influence

I Quoted Mr. Mark Twain in last Post: Naked people have little or no influence on society.


Mr. Twain is properly right! - And then again.....
I must say, some people have a very strong influence on important decisions when they are naked....

Jaguar SUPER 5

Not so many people are aware of Jaguar XJS interior
fits like a glove, in a Renault Super 5...

But it does!
And why do I know this kind of unimportant information concerning 2 cars from the 80th that most people happily forgotten all about....


Well! - I needed some new seats for my Renault 5 you see here -
and why not use a little "cat" skin to make it more cozy....


Now i just need to change the radio into a fireplace...

Keep up the Pace

Next living picture is ready in the sketchbook.

This time I´ll fire up with a Hokus pokus - AbraCadabra painting.


and maybe I´ll call it: Wuuptiii... - where did all the money go???? I don´t know...


Money or not - there will be a lot of Bike racing this season all over Europe, and we´ll be there, that I know for sure...

So keep up the Pace in the workshops, the studios, the banks or whatever you do, just get that bike ready too.....

The City to Visit

My latest painting (Højbro Plads 1890-2010) is a scenery from Copenhagen, and having mentioned Copenhagen, I noticed this -

Copenhagen is #5 on the New York Times 2010 Where 2 Go list. great!
Congratulation to Cph...



Even Skt. Hans Torv/Skt. Hans square, AKA my front door, and my old bicycle in the corner there! is mentioned. Yeahhh Funky

In that occation I´ll show you an 2002 painting I made from the square.


The painting are enjoying itself in Switzerland these days, owned by a collector.


This is what New York Times wrights about our town.


5. Copenhagen

As thousands of environmentalists heckled world leaders in Copenhagen last month for the climate summit, a solitary unifying note could be heard amid the cacophony of discord: the Danish capital has already emerged as one of the world’s greenest — and maybe coolest — cities.

Copenhageners don’t simply preach the “progressive city” ethos, they live it. Long, flat urban thoroughfares are hemmed with bicycle paths where locals glide around the city, tourists saddle up on the free bikes that dot the city center, and fashion bloggers take notes on the latest cycle chic (see copenhagencyclechic.com). Over in the harbor district, a public bath at Osterbro, due to open in 2010, will complement the two swimming areas set off on Copenhagen’s inner harbor, a formerly polluted waterway recently transformed into the city’s summertime hub.

Away from all the modernism and the happy cyclists, cultural thrill-seekers are being coaxed to the once dangerous district of Norrebro, which has arguably become Copenhagen’s edgiest hub. A heady mix of hipsters, students and immigrants mingle in the cafes and galleries around the district’s focal square, Sankt Hans Torv, and the city’s young and excitable night owls can be found dancing in local clubs until the early hours. — Benji Lanyado

I can only say - saddle up and come visit us this summer.


Don´t forget to bring your camera...

A Good Day on the Square

After a good workday in the atelier, there´s nothing like "a coffee break - on the square"...

Traveling Back in Time -

A new painting is on its way.

The motif I´m doing is a modern version of a old Paul Fischer painting
(Højbro Plads - Copenhagen) from 1890.
Its work on commission so the format has changed a little from the original.


This is the Original painting is from the Danish artist Paul Fischer 1860 - 1935.

Notice the building in the Back, no roof cause the building burned in 1886.




Before I started the painting I made a quick time travel back 100 year to the center of Copenhagen to do some research before I started up on the painting.

Then I discovered - Something just don´t change in our town..


The traffic is still heavy in the streets, just like today.


People are still getting tattooed


And we are still having a party when it´s possible....
That hasn´t changed for sure.


This square is Højbroplads Cph.
Same square the Fischer Painting are made on.
This photo is from 1918 and if you notice the tower on Christians Borg (one of the main buildings in Cph) it´s being rebuild after the fire i mentioned before in 1886


If you look at this picture i took yesterday, you can see they have not finished the work on the tower yet....


You know why?!


Cheers buddy...

Come Ooooon - you can Do It! One more and then we go back to work....

May the Best Man Win...

We know the Dakar Race is on these days.
This year from Argentina - Chile.

Absolutely one of the races love most



If I´ll join the mad men one day, it will be on a ol´ camel like this...


Or in this!

May the best man win...

--------

As a bonus to this Post, Actionsoul made a commend and send a link to this 80th Paris-Dakar picture.


And 2 of them made it through the finish line... that´s the spirit, amazing.
And the hit rate is actually better, than 4 of the Bobber Boys on a Sunday ride...


- can you find anything with smaller wheels for this challenge!!!!!! Damn - there´s a long way to Dakar this way....


And why haven´t we seen any Hot Rods at the Rally - A Rod would also be a excellent choice for a dessert racer - you just need to modify it a little, like this sketch I made... But Hey! - you always have to, no matter what car you chose...rally or not.
