Portrait of my great grandfather, 2015
Portrait of my great grandfather who I never knew, because he died before i was born. I made this portrait for my mother because she loved him very much. I also thought it would be a nice exercise to see how many details i could get from a very vague old photograph.
Portrait of Mads Mikkelsen as the priest Ivan, from the Danish Cult-Movie Adam’s Apples, 2015.
I made this design for the cult-movie lovers that have seen the movie Adam’s Apples by Danish writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen.
Though this movie was made 10 years ago, it is still one of my favorite movies of all time. Also one of the reasons why i became to like the actor Mads Mikkelsen who later became world famous by playing the bad guy Le Chiffre in the James Bond movie Casino Royale He is now also staring as killer cannibal Hannibal Lecter in the T.V series Hannibal.
I recommend the three movies; Adam’s Apples, Flickering Lights and The Green Butchers, that together form kind of a triptych of Danish black humor, to anyone who hasn’t seen them and to those who only saw Mads Mikkelsen acting in American movies.
The 1st time i saw him act was in the ‘Pusher I‘, ‘Pusher II‘ and ‘Pusher III‘ trilogy on a film festival in Rotterdam years ago, and was really impressed by both the story and the acting. I also recommend those three movies to anyone who likes good crime movies and triptych/trilogies.

Portrait ‘Dr. Michio Kaku’ 2015
Digital portrait of well known theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, who made a 2.3 million electron volt betatron particle accelerator in the garage of his parents at age 17.
The reason why I wanted to make a portrait of him is because he is such an interesting man to follow. He writes great books, makes interesting documentaires for T.V. in which he explains difficult subjects very well and he has a fascinating vision about the near and distant future of technologies and science.
Another reason why I made this portrait is that maybe just by looking at him, for a longer then usual amount of time, I will inherit some of his great intellect.
For we are all connected, aren’t we?

Portrait of Olav Mackaay, artist, classmate and friend.
In this piece i experimented with virtual impasto, to suggest depth, and to create shadows and highlights trough surface light, instead of painting them with colors.
