Two Unknown Ladies

Two Unknown Ladies and a Blooming Cactus

The two women are at Thorvaldsens Museum, 
Before today, It was probberly about 10 years since I was there last.
It is an amazing place full of is his sculptures, both casts and marbles.
Besides enjoying his work, the building by Bindesbøll is a worth a visit by itself.
The museum also houses Thorvaldsens collection of art and artifacts, 
a lot of Roman and some Egyptian works. 
And a very funky painting of hell by Jan Bruegel the Elder.
In the basement they have the theater seat that Thorvaldsens sat on in the opera when he died.
One of the place I missed wile being in New York

Talk about Artists' Books at Danmarks Kunstbibliotek





  
Kunstnerbøger på Danmarks Kunstbibliotek
Friday June 20th at 16 - 17.30

Thomas Hvid Kromann has arranged a talk at Danmarks Kunstbibliotek about Artists’ books.
First Thomas will be talking about Artists’ books. 
He was recently one of the editors of the first larger book about Danish Artists books.

Anneli Fuchs will be talking about the library collection of Artists’ books

Then Kasper Hesselbjerg, Lasse Krog Møller and I will be talking about being small publishers and our own books.

I haven't been to the library for many years, I used to work there back sometime around 1995, 
I’m looking very much forward to this. 
When working there my job was to fetch the books people requested and I would take my time, 
browsing what books was close to the books I was supposed to find, 
their collection is absolutely amazing.

If you are in Copenhagen and would like to take part of this all you have to do is send a mail to
 dkb@kunstbib.dk to confirm that you will attend. it is free

Tables at Printed Matter,Inc


My favorite book store Printed Matter,Inc has added a new section to their website, called Tables.
They show books by a selection of the artists who has their books in the store.
I just found out they did one with some of my books.
Going to Printed Matter, Inc is like entering Aladdin's Cave of Artist's Books, I'm not sure I ever left without a great book I didn't know I wanted before entering.
They have had my books since sometime in 1999 when I came by the shop on a studio trip with The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art.

She comes in colors everywhere


Shiny things on my studio floor created this rainbow on the wall today
I thought it was a great gift and shot a couple of my new drawings in the light

Lovepunks


This is the cover of Nicolaj Stochholm's book of poetry called Aldrig Mere.
He asked me to do the drawing and the layout of the cover.
I made it so it is one long drawing that includes the flabs,
that you can fold out to see the whole thing,
I drew Nicolaj on the flab to the right, where a lot of books have a photograph of it's author
The t-shirt of the young one on the front cover says Digte (Poetry)
Besides the by the publisher badly placed bar code 
and the fact that they spelled my name wrong lol, 
I am really happy with the book, that is also a great read.
See it unfold after the jump.
