Robots VS Monsters underwater

If you have liked my page on facebook, or follow me on twitter, you are probably aware that I have just been a part of the Drawn Chorus Collective exhibition in London. So I guess that is pretty much what this post will be about :) The name of the Exhibition was AHOY! A nautical illustrative imagining of mysteries and tales of the sea.

Me and my friend Hector setting up the window display for the show.

For this show, I was inspired by the crappy horror movies that I love so much, and decided to draw my very own set of VS posters. I had a lot of fun naming them, which I am sure the people who make these sorts of movies do as well :p

Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla

Ultra BoomPowBot VS Giga Sharkinator

Killer Bionic Botswarm VS Mega Megaconda

Lord Lazer Cyborg VS Über Tentacle Menace

I got a little carried away when drawing the details in the robots, adding all sort of stuff. I have even drawn a little TV screen showing King Kong running on TCM on the Super RoboUppercut VS Ultimate Killzilla one. I did add a few other small homages to different popular culture, but you will have to find those for yourself :p

And here is a picture of me with my illustrations on the wall.

The Espacio gallery (where the show was held) was nice enough to make a video from the opening night which you can view here:

I am really happy with how the show went! I got to see a lot of great work from the rest of the Drawn Chorus Collective, met a lot of new great people, and even got to say hi to one of the readers of this blog :)

Long Mermaid is Long

Exciting news! I’m taking part of yet another Drawn Chorus Collective show in London this August! :D There will be more info on this soon, but in the meanwhile, why not have a look at this perky mermaid? She is to be part of a pack of postcards that has been drawn by the Drawn Chorus Collective artists and will be sold at the show.

I have no idea why her tail is so long…. Maybe she is some sort of Mermaid Rapunzel hybrid?

Competition!

Seeing how I still have a few things left after Desucon last weekend, I thought it would be fun to put on a competition :)

All you have to do is like my page Fredrik Eden Illustration on Facebook, and share the competition post on there.

The prize is a Wizard of Oz Zombie poster, a pack of rude postcards, a Zombie Donald key-chain, 5 Zombie Nintendo stickers, and a few temporary tattoos.

A winner will be drawn on the 31st of July.

Good luck! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Desucon 9

As you might know, I have been busy this whole weekend having my own stand at Desucon 9. And I am really happy with how it went! I met a lot of great people, got to see a lot of amazing stuff and managed to sell some of my work :)

This is pretty much where you would find me all weekend.

Eventhough I was accused of destroying peoples childhood with my zombie art, most seemed to really like it.

Here are some of the buttons (as well as one of the posters :p) I sold being used.

The Frankissula button was bought by these awesome people :)

And I also got to see how my tattoo designs would work as a sleeve. Might just have to try that out on myself one day.

Nintendo Zombie Poster

This is the final zombie poster I have made. And it is going to be available to buy at Desucon 9 all weekend :D

I’m saving one of them for my room though :p

 

Nintendo Zombies

Yes. I have made more Zombies! This time, I have turned some of the most beloved Nintendo characters. You are probably aware of this if you have liked my Facebook page :) These are going to be a set of card that I’m going to sell at Desucon 9 this weekend.

Mario and Luigi

I couldn’t make Nintendo Zombies without having these guys :)

Link

This one got over 600 notes on my tumblr the first day he was up there! :D

Peach

The castle in the background is the castle from my favorite Mario game Super Mario 64.

Donkey Kong

I had to draw Donkey Kong seeing how he both looks and acts like my big brother :D

Yoshi

And no Nintendo card pack would be complete without a cannibalistic Yoshi…

There were plenty of other Nintendo characters I really wanted to make, but I guess they will have to wait until next time or something.

I am really looking forward to this weekend! So if you are going to Desucon, make sure to stop by and say hi :D

Game of Thrones Zombies

Honestly, I thought it would be longer before I started drawing zombies again…. But then again, they are really fun to draw. This time, I zombiefied the Game of Thrones TV show.

I love the show, and found it hard to only select a few of the characters, so I ended up drawing 43 of them :p

The reason for making this poster (other than that I wanted to) is that I’m gonna have a stand at Desucon 9 from 27th to 29th of June. So If you are going there this year, don’t forget to say hi :D
