Hello, I’m Nils Osmar. 

Hello, I’m Nils Osmar. Thanks for visiting my website.

You’ll find information here about me, and also about my artwork, writings, movies and classes. Plus, you’ll find links to some of my articles and blogs.

ABOUT MY BACKGROUND

My artwork has been published in the United States & Europe, and featured in national magazines.  I’ve done portraits and caricatures, paintings on realistic and fantasy themes, book covers, magazine covers, cartoons and comics and graphic novels.  My favorite media include pen and brush, pencil, charcoal, acrylics and photoshop.

My work as a writer has included writing songs and poems, short stories, articles, stage plays and screenplaysMy short story collection, The Hungry Time, was published in 1995.

I studied acting and improv for many years, did some acting on stage and on-camera, then wrote and produced several stage plays back in the 1990s. They were performed at the New City Theater Directors’ Festival and the Seattle Fringe Festival.

I love filmmaking, and have been active as an independent filmmaker since 2003.  My company, Wonder Productions, produces science fiction and fantasy, action, satire and more. Our films have played in both local and international film festivals, and can also be found online. For information about my current and upcoming movie projects, visit my “movies” website, Wonder Productions.

I ALSO TEACH

When I’m not drawing, painting, writing or making movies, I can often be found teaching classes in subjects related to my work in the arts.  I developed the classes originally when I was teaching through the University of Washington’s ASUW Experimental College. I currently teach through the Seattle Experimental College and its affiliate Rekindle School. (I’m also Rekindle School‘s Director.)

You’ll find some examples of my drawings, paintings, cartoons, graphic novels, stories, and other creative works on this website. I’ll be posting more here when I have a chance.

Thanks again for visiting!

P.S. Here’s are some of my recent movies I was the writer, director and editor.
