Janne Robberstad

Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

This week my contribution to Illustration Friday is sewn. I thought her expression really fits the quote.

I´ve spiced up an old, plain sweater by appliqueing fabrics in the front and on the arms. I´ve done this to several sweaters, but this is  probably the calmest one of them.


Ok, this doesn´t have anything to do with IF (unless a helicopter is a cocoon) or creating, but I just have to share it anyway.

I´ve just driven the guy downstairs from one job to another. Since the time-gap was to short to drive to Bergen, they PICKED HIM UP IN A HELICOPTER!!!!!

Now, why doesn´t anyone ever have costume-designer-crises that involves picking ME up in a helicopter?! Just because he´s a phyro-technician who spent the entire day at the breakfast-table, turning it into a bomb-making-central, welding tin-connections…..

Life just isn´t fair, is it!!?

arg! ..sigh..

    heh, nice work Janne.

    Usually when they use helicopters in Oz it;s cause people are being pulled out of the sea.

    So maybe good to be at home sometimes?
