“The ambience of the celebration next to me suddenly was drowned by the murmors and sounds in my head. Ghost I had dodged for years, but were always lurking above me. Haunting memories of the screeching and howling outside of the hull. Of something trying to get in and tear us apart. It always felt like they would come through at any given moment. Yet, I am still here. By miracle or curse. I am here with friends who survived with me and all I can think about are the ghosts above scratching at my hull begging to get in.”

Frozen in thought.

Part of a swap with Magnus Fagerberg. Thank you so much my friend. Love your amazing version!

    Great job ❤️ Love especially how the light effect works on the jacket!

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thank you Alex. Yes this is all about mood. But it was pretty tricky figuring out how the colours of thr material would react in different lightsources

    Hello Jacob,
    I like your painting more and more, strong choice of colors, I really like the lights on the leather jacket!

    • Jakob VillienPLUS

      Thanks so much! I am honoured to hear. I love your work too. The leather was especially tricky, and what I learned on the punk could be used here. This is maybe one of my best models in my opinion. But that is also due to the story. Very emotional piece. Thank you again.
