Project 20x20

I am participating in an exhibition at Gallery Art Expo in November, where a lot of artists will each contribute up to ten works of size 20x20 cm.
Now, i don't have the paintings yet, and 20x20 is significantly smaller than i'm used to working in, so i'm gonna draw a lot of candidate drawings for the exhibition and put them up here.
Perhaps you, dear readers, can help me decide which to send in.
Now, to get started:

Still Here

Here's a strange red pastel painting for y'all. I've been experimenting with making my backgrounds more interesting, and getting better at it :) Also, having A2 paper again helps.

Three Sketches

Here's three sketches i did, to show you some of the other ways i work. The way the lines look in the first is a result of using the side edge of the crayon in quick movements, a technique i've become fond of.

Probably non-existing woman

As you may be aware, i almost always draw freehand without any model or sketching. Thus, any resemblance to persons living or dead is either coincidental or the fault of my unconscious. A3, pastels on paper.

Note: I am considering whether i should switch back to danish. Danish has the advantage that A) i'm better at it, and B) as far as i've considered such a thing as "core audience" for this blog, they are probably danish speakers. On the other hand, writing english would give me practice, which i discovered yesterday that i need.

And a big hello to my foreign readers

My sister just told me i have some foreign readers, so i thought i would try to accommodate them by writing something they can understand. This is (yet another) drawing of a character i keep returning to, a sort of demonic fool. You may notice the resemblance to the fiery red and yellow version i posted here.
