Original concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh.
This is one of the key frames I did, showing Thor and Odin while they discover what's left of the Frost Giants who attempted to steal the Casket of Ancient Winters.

A big thanks goes to Craig Kyle, Producer at Marvel Studios, for the collaboration on the giants.

King Laufey concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh.
The challenge for designing the Frost Giants was to give them a fierce appearance while still evoking a feel of an intelligent, sophisticated race; instead of ending up with a bunch of strong but dumb brutes or the typical movie monsters.

With the movie successfully released, I wanted to announce the upcoming artist panel and book signing at Gallery Nucleus.
I will be present together with my fellow artists who worked on "Thor":
The Art of Thor is a nice collectible for all the peeps interested in how the visual style for the film was created.
It's 240 pages showcasing a great deal of the concept art for the film and comes in a slipcase with a nice spot varnish printing. If you don't get your hands on a signed copy at Nucleus, order here: link
Looking forward to seeing you at Nucleus!
