So this is what’s happening, I will be moving ALL of my tumblr activity to my new adress KNIVSPARK.TUMBLR.COM.
One of the main reasons are that I’ve found a title/name that I’m happy with and feel that I can commit to, so a huge thanks to Fabian Bergvall for accidentally mispronouncing knivskarp* about 2-3 years back.
The idea is that Knivspark** will act as my website and gathering-place for most of my work, A portfolio:ish function I guess. I will also try to be more active overall and post more stuff because I’ve really been lazy with the posts lately, but see this as a RESTART with new energy and new projects! LETSGOLETSGOLETSGOLETSGO.
oh, and don’t forget to check out “KNIVSPARK" on INSTAGRAM.
* Knivskarp = “Razor sharp”, directly translated “Knife sharp”, In this case Fabian intended to use it to describe the sharpness of a video recording.
** Knivspark = “Kniv” means “Knife”, and "Spark" (or “Sparkstötting”), is a winter vehicle kind of like a chair with a handlebar and two long blades that you use to glide on the ice, you kick with your foot just like a kickbike to accelerate. THIS is what I pictured in my head when Fabian accidentally said it, a brutal, vehicular terror-menace with it’s rusty blades screching on the ice as it approaches it’s unsuspecting prey. An alternative meaning would be “KNIFE-KICK” (since “SPARK” translates to ”KICK”)

“Fire entity in robotic furnace-body” (idle loop)
sketching on characters for an indie-game a friend is working on. The game is intended to have silhouette graphics so the body will probably end up being in one solid color, most likely black, except for individual details like the fire on this character for example.
With this project i am trying to do something really low-tech and simple, but still interesting and visually stimulating. It’s very interesting and fun to get into this minimalistic way of thinking and drawing, putting characters together one pixel at a time.
Pixelatin’ is a lot of fun, but I also find it oddly stimulating, mentally focusing on minimalism puts me in a good place. When the stress of modern life becomes a bit much, pixels have a calming and grounding effect.
