The Girl : From drawing to postcard (sneakpreview)

It took me two whole evenings to transfer silly drawings to something that looks a bit like a postcard. Luckily I am not busy at all, only 19 days before the big move. And my head it not at all exploding because of all the bouncing balls who seem to have found a way to double in number, for every day I get closer to the 1st of March.

But I delivered my photoshop files to my very nice colleague who helps me transferring them into a printerready file. I have send one printerready file to Go-Card, and it has been accepted, so now we will make the other 9 too, and hopefully we will be able to send them off to Go-Card today.

I have to say that I like the background colour on the cards. Even though I thought that as simple as possible (white background) was best, I actually quite like the extra colour.

And yes, I am just a cosmic girl, from another galaxy …

The Girl – in a lot of cafe’s !

I don’t know exactly where I got the inspiration from, it suddenly was there. OK this triggered me a bit, and so did this film and this one too. I got ideas from listening to music, and many of them are a direct interpretation of a song. Making them absolutely relaxes me, and is something that seems to tame the bouncing balls for a short while, which is rather nice.

After making quite a lot of them, I got (another) very crazy idea. Wouldn’t it be really cool to leave Denmark, leaving behind some kind of Goodbye (and thanks for all the fish) note. After my London decision I have learned that silly ideas sometimes can have great results, so I contacted Go-card. Go-Card is a free postcard service, distributing postcards to all the cafe’s in Denmark. Most of them are commercial postcards, but they do support artists too, and give them a chance to publish their work for free through these postcards.

When people here ask me why on earth I want to move to London, I say (apart from the whole new and fresh start thing) : film, theatre, museums. And in the look in their eyes I can see that they don’t get it. Why is the cinema in Århus no longer good enough. Well it is, really, but it wasn’t only the cinema I was thinking about when I say film. I also somehow, want to get a little bit closer to the whole filmmaking process, to find out if it is something I like. Well that sounded like mission-are-you-completely-out-of-your-mind-impossible some months ago, but not anymore. (and I warn you this is a very long post !)
