Easter Story by me as an 8-9 year old

I went through my old stuff a few weeks back, and among all of the toys and clothes, I found loads and loads of drawings I had made as a kid. Seeing how I started to get tired of tidying, I decided to look through them. I stumbled upon a bunch of short stories I had made as an 8-9 year old. One of these stories was named “Easter”. So after having come to terms with me being quite special as a kid, I have decided to share this short story with you guys :)

EASTER by Fredrik Edén 8 or 9 years old, comments by Fredrik Edén 26 years old.påske 1As I looked on the cover I thought, this doesn’t look to bad. And I’m pretty impressed with the Easter Lily I drew :)

P.1påske 2Looks pretty good so far. And I guess I have always drawn ladies in high heels…

P.2påske 3Oh…

P.3 “Police”(Misspelled) and it says “body” on the bag.påske 4Completely normal for an 8-9 year old to draw this right?

P.4 “Happy Easter”påske 5Nothing says Easter like a sexy red dress and a flower bra.

P.5påske 6Pretty impressed with how well I drew those cracks :)

P.6 “Aw! So cute!”påske 7I agree. Pretty cute.

P.7påske 8Rambo chicken? Might make an awesome tattoo.

P.8påske 9I guess I really enjoyed drawing dead people…

P.9påske 10And the chicken is also a pyromaniac. Should have seen that coming.

P.10påske 11How could my parents let me play with other kids?

P.11påske 12Honestly, they never had me checked for anything more serious than ADD.

P.12 “BOOM!”påske 13Cant stop laughing at this!

P.13påske 14Pretty sure I spent at least 3 hours on drawing this one.

P.14 “ZZZ”påske 15Quite good at drawing sleeping chickens.

P.15påske 16Seriously, this is what you see kids draw in horror films…

P.16 “1 hour later”påske 17My handwriting is still pretty much the same…

P.17 “ZZZZZ”påske 18The chicken killer is sleeping next to his wife.

P.18 “Happy Easter”påske 19And the bunny from the start is back to tie the whole story together. I am slightly impressed :)

So… Comparing this to my Easter post last year “Easter 2013 post”, I guess I haven’t changed that much :p I hope you enjoyed this, and let me know if you have any drawings like this from when you were a kid. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one….?

PS. I am actually a really happy person.

Desucon Fantasy stand

Yesterday, I was at Desucon Fantasy selling zombies and other stuff from my stand. My very first stand! It wasn’t actually just mine. I shared it with my friend Regine. We split 2 meters of space between us, so space was sort of tight. But having played Tetris since I was a kid, making room for all of my stuff was not really a big problem.

here is a picture of the things I was selling placed with careful calculation and accurate Tetris precision (I tried my best…) I didn’t take a picture of my stand before the end of the day, so it was kind of “messy” by this point :p

Things I had for sale, other than the Zombie posters included

Rude Postcard Sets. These ended up selling really well! I am also planning on putting this up for sale in my future online shop. So If you want to buy a pack, let me know. I’m sure you have a few people in your life you can send one or more of these to ;)

Pins and Keychains. The price is in Norwegian Kroner. So it is not as expensive as it looks. Unless you are from Norway.

Tattoos and Stickers. Lots and lots of tattoos and stickers! Despite mixed reactions from people, the Frankenstein Dracula kiss ended up being the most popular one.

Having a stand at Desucon Fantasy was great! I met a lot of people, handed out lots of business cards and also made some money. So there is a big chance I will put up a stand again in the future :)

Adding a picture of me at my stand to end this post.

Yes. I love this T-shirt very much.

Wizard of Oz Zombies

And here is my final zombiefied poster. The wizard of oz. One of the most trippy movies there is! FYI The bloody hand prints on Dorothy’s dress is from a munchkin villager.

I have gotten all the zombie posters printed out and ready, so hopefully I’ll sell a few of them on Saturday at Desucon Fantasy. Wish me luck! I’ll add a few pictures later on with the rest of the stuff I’m gonna sell as well.

Making zombie posters was a lot of fun, and I am sure I will draw more of them in the future. For now however, I think I’m gonna take a little break from zombies. So much else to draw! Like Barbarians :D But if you have a movie you desperately want to see zombiefied, let me know in the comments, and I will keep it in mind the next time I draw some zombies :)

Lord of the Rings Zombies

The Lord Of The Rings is my fourth zombification victim. Even though there are so many awesome characters in the books and movies, I decided to only draw the fellowship of the ring. Thought it also might be a bit difficult drawing ringwraiths and orcs as zombies, seeing how they already look quite dead :p

As I have mentioned before, I am making these posters for Desucon Fantasy. Desucon Fantasy is a con for everything fantasy, held in Oslo the 5th of April. Me and My friend Regine are putting up a stand there were we will be selling prints, postcards and other handcrafted stuff. Regine is a cosplay enthusiast, and an expert at crafting costume stuff. She is also making awesome masks! And I mean proper masks, not just painted cardboard box masks :p

You can look at some of the things we are bringing and read (If you know Norwegian) more about our stand here: Fredrik & Regine’s stæsj. You can save some money by buying your ticket before the 29th of March here. If you are going to Desucon Fantasy, let me know! Hope to see you there :)

Loads of Harry Potter zombies

And here is the third zombie movie poster! I love the Harry Potter books, and found it a lot of fun imagining them as zombies. I especially enjoyed drawing Umbridge. I hated her with a passion in the books, and thought it was awful that she managed to survive in the end. So I guess it was almost therapeutic to draw her with her head twisted around :p

On the actual poster, all of the zombies are standing next to each other, but seeing how all of them ended up looking really small on screen, I decided to put the zombies up one by one. I will probably upload a picture of the poster when it arrives from the print shop.

I hope I spelled all the names correct, or else I’m definitely gonna hear it at Desucon Fantasy :p

   

 

   

 

   

   

 

   

 

 

Let me know which one of the zombies are your favorite? I think mine are Dobby, Voldemort and the Dursleys :)

Star Trek Zombies

Second zombified movie poster is no other than Star Trek! I have put up a few “work in progress” pictures from this on my Facebook page. So if you follow me there, I guess you knew this one was coming :p

Star Trek has taught me that if you want to die, wear a red shirt when traveling to space.

This is a tribute to all those brave redshirts.

Star Wars Zombies

I have been busy lately preparing for Desucon Fantasy 2014. Me and a friend are gonna put up a stand where we will be selling all sort of different things. So if you are attending Desucon Fantasy, don’t forget to say hi :) I’ll probably put up more information about this later.

As you might have noticed, I have been sort of obsessed with zombies lately. And I am keeping this going by making a few zombiefied posters from famous movies. I will of course be selling these at Desucon Fantasy.

First movie out is Star Wars!

I got 4 more zombie movie posters coming, but I am not telling which movies yet ;) You can probably figure out one of the other movies if you visit my facebook page. There are some pretty obvious hints there :p

PS: I think I have forgotten to mention that my online portfolio is up and running now. You can find it at www.fredrikeden.com. Take a look at let me know what you think :)
