Interview
Steinar has many years of experience supplying illustrations for Art Directors and Designers. This includes work in the areas of animation, editorial, education, packaging, publishing, music, video games and the web. Steinar's artwork is rendered digitally in Photoshop using photo manipulation and painting techniques based on his expertise of doing traditional airbrushing. His styles range from photo illustration to a traditional airbrush look.
Question: What drew you to illustration/design? Steinar: I enjoyed drawing from a very early age, started to paint in earnest at 6th Form College, from then on it was finding a way to be able to do it full time. Question: Do you have any formal design training? Steinar: I completed a degree in Interior Design at Kingston Polytechnic (now University), London. Question: Where are you originally from? Steinar: Land of the Trolls, Norway. Question: Where do you live now & what drew you there? Steinar: Eastleigh, near Winchester, where my partner Lynne is Head of Art at Barton Peveril College. Question: How do you get your ideas? Steinar: There is a strange guy at the local market who sells them. Question: Do you collect anything? Steinar: Music – started with vinyl, cassettes, then CDs, some MP3s and now Spotify an online streaming provider. Question: Do you keep a scrapbook? Steinar: No, but I take a lot of photographs for reference and pleasure. Question: What are your interests outside of illustration? Steinar: Ghostly apparitions and psychic development, I have friends who are mediums. This might explain the development of my Gothic work.
Question: Tell us about a favourite project you’ve recently completed. Steinar: I was commissioned by a food company from Norway who needed illustrations for a range of new jams with reduced sugar content. I'm a fan of good things to put on toast so this job suited me well, plus it was a good opportunity to refresh my Norwegian on the phone. Question: What would be your dream job/commission? Steinar: The answer is in your question, dreams. I have already illustrated a series of dream books together with Lynne and would now be thrilled to do one in a Gothic style depicting the darker side of dreams. Question: Who is/are your art hero/es? Steinar: Surrealism was an early influence, particularly the work by Dali and Magritte. Then the photorealist movement made quite an impression, especially John Salt who did some stunning paintings of American cars. Question: Who is/are your illustration hero/es? Steinar: The first illustrators that inspired me were Maxfield Parrish , Roger Dean and Chris Foss. Question: Who is/are your design hero/es? Steinar: The designs and sound of Bang & Olufsen, the furniture of Ligne Roset, the computers and gadgets of Apple. Question: Have you any hidden talents? Steinar: Some of my music is available on iTunes here. Question: If you could travel back in time, who would be the one person you would want to meet? Steinar: Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 - 1772), a Swedish scientist and visionary who could travel beyond the body to the next world.
