witches eight

              Finally I managed to ink and "colourise" a drawing that was waiting on my desk for almost two years. It is just meant to be an exercise and I guess it will take much more than that to feel comfortable (and satisfied) enough with the style to dare starting the first comic book pages ...

plans


With the end of January approaching I realise that one month of the new year already is gone and I didn´t touch any of my personal artistic endeavours so far. Here are some of  the projects I plan to continue or even finish in 2019:

    1. developing a story arc for a comic  based on this
    2. pencil drawings waiting since a year to get finally inked  continuing this
    3. finalise one of two comic sculptures and starting the second one
    4. filling some pages in my sketchbook
    5. testing my new lego-camera-dolly-slider setup outdoors old mark 1
    6. mastering music tracks (starting with the early ones) and finally upload them somewhere
    7. recording older guitar pieces of mine (as long as I am able to play them)
    8. writing down my music for others to play and creating new music tracks
    9. resuming doing plein-air paintings I quite enjoy but somehow didn´t do for a while

The split between work and personal projects is not easy. Unfortunately earning money to pay the rent is more important than living out ones creativity. Nevertheless I try to get something done. What are your plans for this year?

stamps

Looking for a personal and self-made christmas gift I stumbled over the possibility to get official printed stamps with your own individual motives on them.
Here I chose older artwork that seemed to work also in smaller size, just adding some corresponding text.
It is not really cheap but the final print looks good and the prospect of having your own little paintings and drawings travel around the world is quite thrilling!

Auf der Suche nach einem persönlichen und selbstgemachten Weihnachtsgeschenk bin ich über die Möglichkeit gestolpert, Brief- marken mit eigenen Motiven offiziell drucken zu lassen.
Die ausgewählten Bilder sollten auch in kleiner Größe funktionieren und mit dem zusätzlichen Text etwas aufgewertet werden.
Die ganze Sache ist nicht gerade günstig aber der finale Druck sieht gut aus und die Vorstellung, daß die eigenen kleinen Kunstwerke die Welt bereisen, ist schon spannend!

aged

To do a comic is a dream that is still in the back of my mind. But what would it look like? The latest drawing seemed to be perfect for this comic book mockup. In this case quite aged looking...

Den Traum einmal ein Comic zu zeichnen, schwirrt schon eine ganze Weile in meinem Kopf herum. Aber wie könnte es aussehen? Die jüngste Zeichnung schien geradezu prädestiniert für diese Comicbuch-Immitation zu sein. Mit einigen Jährchen auf dem Buckel, wie es aussieht ...
        
clockwise:  1. initial drawing   2. enlarged and extended preliminary rough drawing 3. final pencil illustration (38 x 25,5 cm)   4. mask for main background and center character on seperate sheet of paper  5. second mask for remaining characters    6. final compositing

barefoot

Impressionen vom "Barfußwandertag", der am 09.09.18 auf der Peißnitz hier in Halle/Saale stattfand. Mein Dank geht an die KON-BigBand, die am selben Tag live am Peißnitzhaus spielte und die passende musikalische Untermalung für meinen Zusammenschnitt lieferte.

Impressions from the "barefoot day" in Halle/Saale on the 9th September 2018. My gratitude goes to the KON-BigBand which played live later on the same day and provided the right background music for the video clip.

drunken pen












Yesterday I spontaneously sketched my good friend Grig on an I-pad while we were drinking self-made cherry, strawberry and banana wine ... hic!

left with right

Because today is the inter- national Left Handers Day I challenged myself drawing my left hand with the right. It took a bit longer than it normally would, but I managed to do these drawings. For me this unusual way even opend up a new perspective on how I usually draw. Maybe I should switch more often.

Da heute der internationale Tag des Linkshänders ist, habe ich mir eine kleine Herausforderung gesucht und meine linke Hand mit der rechten gezeichnet. Es hat etwas länger gedauert als sonst, aber heraus kamen diese Zeichnungen. Für mich hat sich sogar eine neue Perspektive auf die Art und Weise eröffnet, wie ich sonst zeichne. Vielleicht sollte ich öfter mal wechseln.
