This motive has been on the bubble as a T-shirt for a while, and I’ve had a few requests for posters so here we are.
I don’t know why I didn’t do this from the beginning, but anyway better late than never I guess.

It has been my best selling tee ever so far, and it is one of the vector pictures I am the most proud of.
The concept of this design was an idea I had bumping around in my head for a very long time before I jumped in to it and first put it to paper.
It was tossed around for a while together with thousands of ideas and idea snippets, collected throughout my life.
Ideas I take care of in notepads and on paper scraps of different origin and quality that I stuff in to boxes of different orig….a.s.f.

Then one day (triggered by a vid I saw on the youtube. It was about how animals in African wild parks are exploited for cash) I had the idea with the blood and that was it…I went straight for the computer and scanned my sketches of the zebra/barcode ideas. Then I brought it all together in Adobe Illustrator for execution (My absolute favourite vector app.).

I let the design sit on my computer screen for a couple of days as I did tiny little corrections now and then.
Afterwards I hid it for a few weeks, and then I published it after a few more minor enhancements…..and voila!


I am an Illustrator, comic artist and creator and musician/singer/songwriter. I come from the windy west coast of Norway. Rock’n Roll is my guiding star.

    Good work! Lotsa impact.
    Suggestion, the book’s cover (on the coffee table) could be visible & have another of your fav images on the cover? Added exposure etc you know.
    Anyway keep up the good work!

  • Took some time before I saw this one…good suggestion I will try that :-) Thanks..
    (My ex might be right in her claim that I am a slow one….but I ran away from her anyway…fast enough for that though….. LOL)

    Great art work. I’ve been trying to do some work with bar codes but they are really hard to work with. Well done.
