Skandi Vega

By spotogspindel | March 18, 2010

DOF´s latest offshore supply ship is named Skandi Vega, and once again I was lucky enough to make the artwork for their new ship. It never ceases to amaze me when I come on board, what beautiful ships they build!

I view my job as to try to make the ship a second home for the sailors, by decorating with artwork that will make them feel comfortable and relaxed and even happy.

The Christening of the Skandi Vega is today, but the ship was still not finished yesterday, when I was onboard. That´s why some of the interior-pictures might not do justice to the true outcome of the finished ship.

These pictures are in the mess, all 60×90 cm.

(Except this one. This is 60×80 cm)

Right next to the mess, is the lounge for relaxing. Here these pictures are decorating the walls. In these small versions it can be hard to see the details, but there are often lots of details, telling a whole story in one picture, or photo-collage.

Not far away is the smoker´ s lounge:

This picture is of Haakonshallen in Bergen, built in the 1200s, I think.

Moving up to the D-deck, we find the conference room.

“The well-known secret behind the door” is 80×100 cm

There is a lounge connected to the conference room, with a lot light coming in from big windows. This is the picture here:

This picture is in the Captain´s cabin. And my ever-helpful Dad who works with me on getting the artwork up onto the walls.

The old boat-maker I met years ago in Austevoll. He´d been making wooden boats all his life.

And the Chief got this picture.

Above the bridge is the sky-lounge. This is a beautiful room with lots of air and light, big windows where you can look out across the sea.

This boathouse is from Austevoll:

    Okay, what Deidra said 🙂 🙂

    Your work is consistently beautiful, full of harmony and interesting. Very rare. My question. How do you get your images printed out?

    Have you seen this about screen printing – looks interesting… http://escapefromillustrationisland.com/2010/03/03/how-to-prepare-an-illustration-for-screenprinting/

    Thank you so much all of you!
    Andrew, I have a printer print them on canvas for me. there are lots of different qualities out there, but this is pretty much the real thing. They are light-faded-guaranteed for 90 years, I believe…
