I wouldn't mind some peanuts from Polly either. Very nice and loose sketch of her.

That was a great clip. I missed that one when his chav clips made the rounds.
The character reminded me a bit of Johnny the homicidial maniac.

Yeah I thought a direction on the eyes would add a bit of interest. Either the computer or the ceiling.

so you have been holding out this long for the flight goodness. You are in for a treat! I like mr death but he looks a bit sad. What is saladfingery btw? No, I haven't seen mormor och de åtta ungarna. We in Sweden are extremely bad at appreciating what you create over there. The only kids series I a...

I have no idea if den brysomme mannen will tour the states. Maybe if you are lucky some film festival close to you will show it. I caught it at the nouveau cinema festival here in montreal. They have a trailer with french subtitles. Saltkråkan is a bunch of swedish movies filmed in the 1960's based ...

Does that one count? Or is it just a bonus sketch? I like the relaxed pose a lot. Goes well with the dreamy look. Yeah I can recommend " den brysomme mannen ". But I think it is better to know next to nothing about it before watching it though. That goes so well with the main character, as he is dro...

ah, yes Saltkråkan. A classic. Though I made up for the lack of norwegian by going and seeing den brysomme mannen last night. I am with ubisoft in Montréal, working as an animator for them. Which is a very rewarding experience. Plus the town is amazing! This is getting social, I think we need anothe...

Yes, swedish. But I live on the other side of the pond, in Montréal.
Tjenare själv :) I am sad to say though that I have lost all of the little norwegian I could speak.

You should definetly not stop posting. Even though lurkers like me keep quiet you should know that every one of them sketches have brought a smile on my face.
Very nice and warm style to them all.
Then again, seeing fellow scandinavians around here is also a good thing :)

I think your whole game should look like this sketch. That would be awesome!
Imagine all the squiggly lines moving around on your character while running and jumping.

Looks like great minds think alike. Yes, Peter Madsen is a big inspiration on us scandinavians.

That's the imdb page for "Ronya Plunderdaughter" (rough translation)

Still don't know what to think of this. To me they have borrowed too heavily from previous ghibli films, designwise that is.
Opinions about it doesn't bode well,

I second Laleh , that is a woman everyone should listen to. If you are into lyrics, Cloud Cult is a wonderful band. Fantastic music too. Read up on the life of the main guy behind it and you will be hard pushed to find something as strong. If you want something more mellow try Susanna and the magica...
