I grew up in a home of artists here in Oslo. Creativity has been part of me as far as I can remember. I have been into Metal since ’87 or so and founded the band Manimalism (originally named Taarenes Vaar) in 1992, as well as studying art, design, and writing throughout the nineties. Friends of ours like Virus, Fleurety, Audiopain, and others asked us to do their artwork. I use whatever technique or combination of techniques it takes to complete the task in a good way. From hand drawing with pen, pencil, charcoal, or painting to photography to the normal software tools with image editing and vector graphics—techniques are secondary. Attitude, perspective, inventiveness, and hard work are primary.
