This is the other sketch for the Robert Schumann record. Schumann was originally slated to be a lawyer and studied law for a long time before committing to music. One of his teachers was Friedrich Wieck who was also the father of Clara Wieck. Clara was among the finest piano players in Europe at the time. She also made a lot of money, this might have been a part of the reason for Friedrich to refuse Roberts proposal to marry her.

This sketch is for one of my illustrations for a record by Johan Enander. The record is due this fall and he will be playing music by Robert Schumann. It is a very nice project, Schumanns history is ripe with inspiration and tragedy but also hope. This picture portrays Schumann comparing his hand to a pair of scissors. He had the idea that if his fingers could spread wider, he would be a better piano player…The story goes that he cut them up on his own, but it is more likely that he convinced a surgeon to try. Either way he could no longer play and was reduced to compose only. He suffered from insanity on and off his whole life.Check out Johan Enander at http://enanderpianist.se/

Viz Media Announces Release of Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke: The First Story and The Art of Princess Mononoke

Miyazaki wrote and illustrated Princess Mononoke: The First Story in 1980, while he conceived the idea that would eventually become the Princess Mononoke film. The oversized book features watercolor art and a story that is different from what he presented in the film.

After a long, exhausting war, a samurai lost in a forest encounters a giant wildcat – a mononoke. The beast saves his life, but at the price of his daughter’s hand in marriage…

The hardcover book will retail for US$34.99 in October.

The Art of Princess Mononoke art book is newly translated with interviews, concept sketches, and character art. The book will retail for US$34.99 in August.

The Art of Princess Mononoke can be pre-ordered on Amazon, while Princess Mononoke: The First Story has yet to have a product listing.

Oh shit! I have that book in japanese! If someone buys this, can you pleeeeease post the text page by page so I can read it!!!?

Another still life study, this one in grisaille, I suppose it is really earlier than the others.

A pair of onions. I went to see the Helene Sjerfbeck excibition at the artmuseum here in Gothenburg a year ago. Such a great artist, very interesting to see her development.
Edit: That is, I made these inspired by one of her early still lifes! :)

A monkey skull! One of my friends brought this to school, it was really cool, I think he said it was from some kind of medical experiment, the skull was cut open.
