East Africa snapshots part 1. Tanzania and Zanzibar February 2015

Until now Africa has been a blank spot on my map but now I have spent 2 weeks in this raw and wild part of our world and it has been an eye-opener in many ways. The raw and awesome wildlife experience. The close up “survival of the fittest” or “hunt or be hunted”. The simple and tough living of people outside of the tourist areas. The rejection of modern living by the Masai tribes and the ever present environmental threat that nature is exposed to. Here You can see some of my best shots from the trip.

Cleanup in progress. Please have patience

Here is a snapshot of my work desk right now. A strong cup of coffe (in an limited edition Bionicle/Hero Factory promo mug) and piles of old sketches (if you look closely you can see the first time the word BIONICLE was written). On my screen the outlines of my new company is taking shape. Faber Fuel, with the rebel rocket icon.

To file 28 years of work, sketches and thoughts is a job on its own. Especially because I have a strange habit of keeping all the work sketches.  Sketches are my fuel and my product so there you have the backstory of the name. I am starting to get an overview and warming up to filming the unboxing of what turns out to be several crates stored in the basement deep under Advance in Copenhagen. So please have patience. Now back to the diggingJ

Early HF EXO conceptsketch

In 2015 everything is new and Bionicle is back. Hero Factory has closed the doors to the building in Makuhero City. I have been working on the HF concept since the very beginning and here is an early concept sketch from 2013 when the hero Exo suits were put on the table.

The "smart" generation

Smart tech is redefining us as human beings and we are constantly checking our artificial handheld new brain. I wonder how the coming generations will look back at this point in time.

Paris, January 2015

This is my contribution to the world wide wave of drawings protesting the attack in Paris.
To think that some lines on a piece of paper can lead to any kind of violence is totally unacceptable. 
Long live the freedom of expression!
