History


Native of the lands of the vikings.



"Your job is to do what your dreams tell you to do."

The Building.

Walt Disney Feature Animation Orlando ,Florida USA

This is/was where the magic happened.

I was hired to go and work for "The mouse" on the animated feature film Mulan.

I ended up being apart of three animated feature films while living in Florida,USA.

The extended Edition (including "Human again").



Awesome experience.


Beauty and the Beast.

Who should have known that I would be apart of this amazing film.



Some years after completion of the first and original film. Disney decided to put in a sequence (Human again) that was left out in the first version of the film.



I was very lucky to be put on the team to work on this sequence. Great times.

Here I link to a youtube video that shows a little bit behind the scenes from that production.

Enjoy.

And here is a link to the sequense.


And this is status after doing a 80 hour work week on production for 2 years  straight.
You start to loose it.

Here is me taking a quick snap photo of Gary Goldman at the UCLA in the late half of 1989.
Here Gary is making a speech on the newly released "All dogs go to heaven" By Bluth animation (Sullivan & Bluth).
After the talk I pulled myself together and went up to Gary asking him about the procedure of applying for a job in the animation industry.

.....to make a long story short...

We had a brief talk and this was the very moment my carriere in the animation business startet.. 



Los Angeles USA, August 8-1989
I was lucky to meet Bud Rickert.
I met Bud at his art store in Los Angeles. 

Bud was a background painter at the original Walt Disney studio back in the days.
Bud told me ,as I recall, he was doing background paintings on the Pinocchio feature among others.

Great meeting and for me at the time I was in awe to have met a person who was actually working for walt himself.

Life drawing class in the year 1989.


19 years old starting to get on track with my life.
I was told that it was/is  important to practice drawing from life models.
It is a good exercise to draw and learn about the human body in motion. Especially if you want to get into animation.  So I signed up and was heading for the goal, animation.
