Tell us a little bit about your work for Brain magazine.
I was so honoured when Brain magazine asked me to design its cover. The team gave me the theme ‘Happy Creation’, besides that I had a completely free hand. The theme got me thinking: I’ve been drawing ever since I was very young, so essentially drawing was my happy creation. I started to look for my old childhood drawings, and I found a really funny piece that I did when I was about six years old. It was a comic book, held together by a clip with the magical title Amour and the Flying Ponies. The story was about a girl who lives in a cloud-house. She rides ponies and kisses boys, and nothing really happens besides that. I thought it was super-girly and cool, so it led me to the idea of recreating the piece, twenty-two years later. It ended up being a very personal project for me.
Tell us about a project you worked on recently that was pretty challenging.
Last summer the Danish TV channel TV2 hired me to be the art director on their open-air cinema event Zulu Sommerbio.
I’ve been going every summer since I was a teen, plus it was my first project at that scale, so I was pretty excited. It was a very fun – and at the same time challenging – project. Besides art directing, filming and editing the TV trailers and graphics, we had to find out about all the practical stuff too. I also ended up in the trailers myself, and doing the compositing – very meta.
