Titles and descriptions
Sad Days Indeed, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by keywords like mantal health, state of mind, manic depression, major depression, bipolar condition, serotonin syndrome...disintegration...then red paint has been thrown temperamentally...


Octo-Pus the Cuttlefish, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by joy of making motifs that communicate in a very simple way.
One beautiful evening I sat at a restaurant in Venice at the brink of Grand Canal. I ordered cuttlefish. Honestly I did not know, what it was. It tasted like rubber in an ink stew.
I know now what a cuttlefish is.
And then of cause Octo-Pus is the main character in the children's book "The cuttlefish Octo-Pus and the crab Crab-Mac-Claw".


Tall Charlie
, Asbjorn Lonvig
On the 5 December I relaunche my print on demand poster idea. Tall Charlie was my first paper poster back in 1985. He was a great success. He has been used in many cases. Plastic bags, children's books, post cards, posters etc. To honour Tall Charlie he is one of the in large size images for printing online at ArtWanted.com.


Frederic the Frog, Asbjorn Lonvig
Main character in Asbjorn Lonvig's fairy tales for kids. Frederic the Frog is main character in "Frederic the Frog and Elias the Elephant". Reproduction rights and publishing rights for fairy tales and fairy tale characters are for sale.

Crab-Mac-Claw, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired from my love to the sea, my past as a crab catcher, from the joy of making motifs that communicate in a very simple way.
If you see the name No-Crap - it is the prior name of Crab-Mac-Claw. The second time a translator told me, that he could not be called No-Crap in American English - I gave in.
At the exhibition "International Contemporary Exhibition" in Rome I met Jose Dali.
Son of Salvador Dalí.
Jose Dali exhibited motifs from Venice, where he lives, and I showed anything I had.
I gave Jose a letter in Italian, which was intended to all Italians and all Romans.
At the bottom of this letter there was a poster from the LUCCA project.
He saw Crab-Mac-Claw.
He laughed, and laughed, and laughed.............sincerely.
He became so happy.
From that moment I knew, that Crap-Mac-Claw is a lochey star in my prodction.
He had just been renamed from No-Crap to Crab-Mac-Claw.
Crab-Mac-Claw will probably become the new logo of my world wide fairy tale activities.
On my way home - in the airport of Rome - I bought a huge book. Salvador Dalí - la vita e l'opera. I had to know more about Jose's father. Jose's background.
I still can't imagine why Jose paints tiny naturalistic watercolor pictures with motifs from Venice?
The only resemblence to Salvador Dalí is Jose's bird!!!!!
And then of cause Crab-Mac-Claw is the main character in the children's book "The cuttlefish Octo-Pus and the crab Crab-Mac-Claw".

Blue Sky - Guggenheim, Asbjorn Lonvig
Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece on Fifth Avenue in New York. Of course The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Avenue at 89th Street, New York. And New York is yellow cabs, black people, white people, red light, green light, street noise, Hotel Lexington, homeless, alcohol, narcotics, penthouse, Fifth Avenue, Thrump Tower, fancy restaurants, delis, Central Park, ally, backyard, Guggenheim, glory, misery, Museum of Modern Art, China Town, Rockefeller Center, millionaires, beggars, subway, Broadway, tourists, diplomats, UN, Metropolitan... Amazing how Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture is contemporary.
In Chicago I saw several of his houses that looked as if they were built yesterday. One was from 1909. The blue sky above symbolizes divinity. Frank Lloyd Wright had a rare gift, sure.

Inspired by the highest mountain in the world, Mont (or Mount) Everest in Nepal. And the wish to climb it - soon! - Might it be like seeing a Henri Matisse exhibition at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art?
