For those of you that don´t read Norwegian, I´ve translated three of the paragraphs:
How did you learn to draw the way you draw now?When I was small, my mother would send us to all kinds of creative classes. I enjoyed those! Me and my brother were A LOT at the library as kids, they often had to kick us out as we would often just keep hanging out until closing time. I read and reread all the comics they had. Besides all the creative classes I would just draw, draw, draw. Lots of copying, and a few books about how to draw different things.
I´m self-taught, and that´s a nice way of saying that I don´t want to have to listen what others want to teach me. So then I ended up doing a lot of the learning by myself.
As an teenager, I didn´t want to take a formal education in visual arts. Because drawing would then turn into work, and work is boring. I imagined that I would have to draw lots of things that I did not enjoy drawing, and I was afraid it would kill the joy of it. How much this teen-rethoric would have matched up with reality is another thing.
