Poledancer

Poledancer (commissioned work, 2016)

Short timelapse documentation of the Poledancer painting. In this video the work is still in progress and reguires some finishing touches. I usually like to add a faint blue light as a finishing touch and this video shows you how that comes about. I have few more videos like this on the Killer Beach Facebook page if you care to check them out.

I've always been into art. I remember in 2004 getting a pin-up calendar from Taschen books that featured Gil Elvgren's artwork. I've been a pin-up fanatic ever since and my own art revolves around pin-up 90% of the time.

I use Photoshop and my Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet to paint these images. I'm very inspired by the classical pin-ups and try to mimic that lovely 40's and 50's style. Each painting can take anything between 1h — 15h to finish. I am by all means, not an expert, in my oppinion, in painting, but I am very very inspired.

Here you can see a very small cample of my works. I've been painting since 2004 and produced a lot of artwork. Nowadays I don't have enough time to paint no more than maybe 1 — 4 finished works per year. My most active are was about 2006 — 2009 when I painted practically all the time.

Most of this stuff is personal work, but there are some occasional commissions as well in the mix as well.
