Conspiracy summer

Just so you don't think these past few weeks have been all about black metal and art shows, here are some random shots of what everyone has been up to. Not enough, but hey, we've been too busy to take pictures, dammit!

Me and Allan went undercover to pick up Nick at the airport earlier this month

Our disguises were almost too successful, cause he literally did not recognize us

Lucifer is also a master of disguise!

Here's Allan and Matthew having one of many consultations... this however was the only outdoor one (but probably not the only one that involved milkshakes!)

Nick did paintings of me and Allan, and Matthew did one of Nick, so he wouldn't be too jealous

Milkshakes and bubble tea during the mini heatwave... also, Allan in shorts!!

Oh hey, don't forget to stop our merch page and order a sweet limited black metal t-shirt!

Super limited, super awesome

Faces of total awesomeness

Man, it sure is going slow with the blogging these days (my personal blog is suffering even worse than this one), but there's nothing slow about August at the shop!

We have a house full of awesome guests and guest artists, and on top of that, we had the black metal art show on Saturday, and seriously, just wow... i can't even express how awesome that was, and how grateful we are to the people (many people!) that showed up.
Thank you!
We had such a fun evening, and it was such a pleasure showing Allan's paintings, and our redecorated-for-the-occasion shop, to friends and clients and total strangers alike.

Ok, so the first half hour or so, i was taking pictures non stop with three different cameras, hell bent on documenting the occasion, but then people started to drink... and obviously i was in charge of keeping the beers coming while Allan and Lucifer mingled, so all of a sudden, the documenting kinda stopped!
So you'll just have to take my word for it; the shop and sidewalk was totally packed, and people seemed to have fun, like at a real party! Only with an all black metal soundtrack, of course. So yeah, who cares if i didn't get that many pictures.
In a way it was almost like we got to have the opening party we never got around to throwing two years ago, cause stuff kept going wrong back then. I hope it won't be our last party!

Pictures of all the paintings are gonna be up on Allan's blog real soon (i think he's in the process of editing now) and those that aren't sold yet will be for sale, so check up on that soon.
We also have a few t-shirts left from our very limited run made just for the show, and they'll be for sale too soon!
Update: t-shirts are up on the merch blog NOW!

Ok, pictures!

Pretty pretty... uhm, i mean gloooomy and scary, of course... ahem...

Painting peek

More window decor, cause i liked that a lot

Lisa and Anika posing hard!

I think Bob enjoyed the attention


Yes, the little statues are for sale too, although we were too busy to price them on Saturday!

I have a feeling Allan might keep this one, though

All wearing the t-shirt of doom and awesomeness!

The paintings are up until the end of the week, then we'll start getting the shop back to normal, so if you want to see them live, i suggest you drop by Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but as always, call or write ahead to make sure we're here.

A huge thanks to David, Wendy, Matthew, Nick, Matt, Davee and Ross for helping us out and just being awesome, and to everyone else who dropped by, thanks for coming! You guys are the best!

Sort lørdagshygge i Schleppegrellsgade

Kære kunder og venner og andre kunst interesserede mennesker!

På lørdag den 18. holder vi et lille arrangement for de folk der ikke havde muligheden for at tage til Oberhausen i Marts og se Uncle Allan's udstilling Faces of Black Metal hos galleri Lionheart... så det vil sige alle undtagen os og en masse Tyskere!

Vi starter kl. 23.00, da man jo af gode grunde ikke kan have en Black Metal udstilling i dagslys, og fortsætter til vi eller i ikke gider mere.
Der vil blive serveret lidt øl, vand, og spillet en masse Norsk hygge musik.
Alle malerier og fotos er indrammede og til salg, og der vil derudover være lidt limited merch til salg, lavet specielt til lejligheden.

Vi håber at se en masse hernede!

Ps. Dette er ikke et tatoverings event, så der er ikke nogle chancer for at gå hjem med en lille Black Metal souvenir i denne omgang, men vi vil prøve at holde endnu en walk-in dag snart.

Dearest clients and friends and other artsy folks!

This Saturday, the 18th of August, we're having a little art show at the shop.
We figured that apart from ourselves, and a bunch of lucky Germans, not many people had a chance to see Uncle Allan's Faces of Black Metal show at the Lionheart Gallery in March, so we're showing them at the shop, for one night only.

We'll be opening at 11 pm, cause you can't have a Black Metal art show in broad daylight, and we'll close whenever we feel like it.
We'll be serving some refreshing beverages and playing some soothing Norwegian tunes.

All paintings are framed and for sale, and we've made some special limited merch for the occasion as well.
Whatever doesn't sell will be for sale online, so if you're not able to show up in person, check back here next week for prices and info.

We hope to see you!

Ps. This is not a tattoo event, so if you were hoping to walk out of here with a little Black Metal souvenir, i'm afraid i have to disappoint. But we will try to do another walk-in day soon!

No big deal...

We're still kind of on vacation, but crazy guest and guest artist month has almost started.
Nick arrived yesterday and will be working at the shop starting tomorrow, and the Australians are arriving on Tuesday. Fun!
I'm almost at the point of looking forward to being back to work, but only almost.
I do love the crap out of the shop, but there's nothing like a staycation!

So, that's all i wanted to say... oh, yeah, there were these portraits that Matthew Gordon did of yours truly and her husband. I know, no big deal, right? But i figured i'd post them here anyway.
This guy still has a few spots left for his upcoming guest spot.
Just sayin'...
