This Too Shall Pass (2012) by Tomorrow Machine

Independent packaging project for perishable goods:

Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.

Smoothie package
Gel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.

Rice Package
Package made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.

Oil package
A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

Design and Science proving they can be best buddies once again

Exercise for Drawing Translation: Integration of a Ram (or so it turned out, Ram’s horn), Skier and the letter O.

International Sushi Day Illustrations for Drawing Translation.

Another example of some of my design work for school.

The project was to become familiar with an independent store selling books/records/comics/coffee and design a salleable item that could also help promote the store. The store I chose is Swipe Design, a book store that caters to designers.

I created a design for a canvas bag since Swipe already has a wide variety of items in addition to books that I didn’t want to compete with. The idea was to create a relatively inexpensive bag that people could add to their purchase and then use for groceries etc as well.

Videos from Drawing Class

For anyone who’s curious what sort of videos that you might watch in a first year drawing class when attending school for Graphic Design, here’s a list. Mostly showcases of specific designers with a heavy emphasis on simplification of form, hand lettering, and icons.

Having troubles with facial angles in your drawing style?

Try a 3D sculpture of your art in your own style in a free program that is simple and very easy to use.

The program is called Sculptris and is a free off-shoot program from Zbrush, that program that you keep hearing about but either takes selling your kidneys or piracy to actually use. 

If you download it and sculpt out a facial model, you can have references for your own work for all of time. No more endlessly searching Google for reference materials or twisting/rotating/flipping a drawing to see if there are flaws. And you can easily edit it to create more facial types. This way, you can make character references for any and every face and facial angle that you can think of.

The program offers mirroring right from the start, so your faces will be perfectly symmetrical. You can turn off the symmetry for things like scars or otherwise. 

It takes a little time. For instance, I downloaded the program on Christmas and, in my spare time, this took a few days of getting familiar with the program (first day) and then sculpting for a few minutes each day, mostly due to my perfectionist nature. And this one isn’t even done. I still have to mold the mouth, ears, and other smaller aspects before I consider it done. However, I was so giddy over the possibilities that I wanted to share this with my fellow artists.

From now on, I have reference for a face in my own style and will be able to create things so much easier in the future. 

I hope that this helps you guys and that you have fun with it. 

I absolutely recommend Sculptris!



This really useful oh my goodness. It takes a little figuring out, but once you get the hang of it it’s actually pretty easy. Just watch a couple youtube videos. Seeing how other people do it helps you to make sense of it.

OH BOY LOOK AT THIS HANDSOME IDIOT do you know how hard his stupid face is to figure out at different angles? DO YOU??? Now I have a 3D ref!!! AAAHH!! so excite much 3d wow very angles wow

((I need this for reasons…))


this is so cool. I jut tried it out and it legit is super simple and useful and great.
