The 2014 project is to work with images in different medias:
Street art – London by Nathan Bowen
Another trip down memory lane. During the 80’s I had a small screen printing and graphic art studio. It was in the age before the computer. Frequent use of Letraset, repro camera and Xerox copy machine…
Here is a gallery of some of the designs, a mix of T-shirt painting , posters, screen print designs etc:

Inspired by the website The Museum of Forgotten Art Supplies, I went down memory lane and found some of my own books and magazines from the early days…
Added a new Art gallery, a collection of ski posters I made for the Novo Nordisk Ski club…
A month has already passed 🙂
The theme I use is called Panorama and the header images are displayed in a random order. In this post the first ones are displayed.
I now added four new ones after a go via Photoshop:
When I used to paint I used acrylic paint and brush or water color and pencils. I use photos as reference and like to be as realistic as possible and sometimes exaggerate details.
His latest project is a “painting” of Times Square, NYC.
Finally the collection of my acrylic paintings is on line.
Most of the paintings are made from photos from our round the world trip 1989-1990. A few are made as orders. For instance a friend or customer showed me an image and asked if I could paint that on canvas or hardboard.
The genre could be called realism. I thought it was called magic realism but I learned that that genre refers to realistic paintings with one or more magic details in the picture.
After a few years in the basement collecting dust, some of them has been moved up to a wall in the living room.
Back in the 80’s, I had a little studio in a basement in the small Swedish town Falkenberg. The studio that was called Noggin*, had a silk printing set where I printed T-shirts and sweatshirts. There was also a large drafts table where I draw print designs and did some airbrush paintings.
For a couple of years I created a christmas card that I sent to customers and friends. In -87 I made some postcards that Vibe and I brought with us (togehter with a ski box full of sweatshirts) to the Three Vallées in France, where we spent a skiseason. We sold the sweatshirts and postcards at the After Ski pubs – good times. 🙂
On the original size painting of this post card, the tools are in scale 1:1…

*Noggin means head and Noggin the Nog was the name of a British childrens character – a viking. I got Noggin as nickname from some english friends I had back in the 80’s. The pacifier was a kind of “logo” I used…
