Here’s my variation on the theme “money” for the new Squarespace Commerce contest: a 15 second animation about a beanie shop that takes its business online using the Squarespace platform, and consequently how the first beanie is purchased by a very happy consumer :)
This is the storyboard I made prior to animating.
Here’s a bunch of stills from the animation:
Yesterday I was at the gym / swim hall, and when I packed my things and got ready to leave, my shoes were gone. Stolen. I was like: “Come on, who steals other peoples shoes for crying out loud!” and slammed my hand onto the bench in frustration (while scaring a couple of nearby kids). Anyways, now I gotta go find myself some new sneakers. Should I get the same as before, or a new style? Quite the dilemma huh?
This is the last photo I have of my grandmother, taken less than a month ago on the 26th of December 2012. My father is showing her his new smart phone, discussing how young people are constantly using them these days.
Elvira (or “iaia” as we all called her) passed away yesterday evening at 21:45, surrounded by family at the hospital in Calella. My dad texted me yesterday telling me that she was at the hospital and that it wasn’t good, and just this morning he called me with the heartbreaking news. Elvira’s house was the gathering point of all the family, and she was the energetic and hospitable lady of that house. I always felt at home there, and enjoyed listening to the everyday conversations that she had with my father, uncles, aunts and cousins. She always had something to say, and despite her age, she was as lively and curious as can be. She would often play “Sardana” on the radio, filling the living room with joyful melodies, as she sat in her chair reading “El Punt”. Her children would come and go throughout the day, always keeping her company. My grandmother was truly a loved person, and it will not be the same without her, but at least her spirit will live on in the hearts of all of us. Rest in peace iaia.
I tirsdags drog jeg til Odense for at se filmen Jack Reacher med min gamle gymnasieven Manan. Jeg havde ikke set ham i 100 år, så det var sjovt endelig at mødes igen. Han var storsindet at give billetter, nu hvor jeg skulle tage toget. Awesome :) Selve filmen var vildt fed. Klart anbefalelsesværdig hvis man er til Tom Cruise. Turen mod Kolding var et kapitel for sig. Jeg nåede ikke 23:40 toget som jeg ellers havde satset på, så jeg skulle med et senere tog, hvilket i snevejr godt kan være en tricky oplevelse. Pludselig lød det da også over anlægget på banegården, at toget mod Fredericia var blevet erstattet af en togbus grundet sporarbejde. Fedt! Jeg nåede LIGE akkurat at hoppe på togbussen før den kørte, og så gik den ellers derudaf gennem det vilde snelandskab i diverse små byer. Jeg havde spist en del popcorn, så jeg var ekstremt tørstig. Spurgte buschaufføren om han ikke havde noget vand, men det eneste drikkelse var nogle dåseøl der stod på sædet ved siden af mig. Han tilbød mig en, og hvem siger nej til en bajer? Det hjalp både på tørsten og humøret! Jeg small talkede med ham hele vejen til Fredericia. Super flink chauffør! I Fredericia stod der en lettere beruset mand og ventede på toget mod Kolding. Vi faldt hurtigt i snak om hvor dårlige DSB’s forbindelser er. Det er altid noget man kan samles om. Han var overbevist om, at det først var toget kl. 03:00 der gik mod Kolding, imens jeg forsøgte at forklare ham, at toget mod Sønderborg 01:30 altså også svingede forbi Kolding først. Jeg kom meget sent hjem… Men det var en god tur!

Before the Christmas break I contacted the people behind Backgammon NJ asking if I could design a board for their app. I’ve alway wanted to see what if was like to design for an app, and fortunately they agreed to collaborate with me. Now the app has been submitted to Apple and approved with my board design (I’m so proud!). You can get your hands on the app right here.
