In 1992 Vangelis composed the music for the film "1492 - Conquest Of Paradise". Undeniable visually impressive on the big screen, but it was the music that had the biggest impact on me. I immediately scraped every little bit of pocket money together and bought the soundtrack, one of my first CDs ever. The album ran nonstop all day long for days. Later I discovered more and more of Vangelis' previous works.
The last 30 years his music has accompanied me and probably will continue to do so. With his passing this May I am grateful for all the lush musical soundscapes he created as a source of immersion and inspiration for generations to come.

Today my grandfather would have been 97 years old. In memory of him I drew a tree again. This sequoia tree I noticed just recently in our nearby botanic garden (despite the obvious scale).

Heute wäre mein Großvater 97 Jahre alt geworden. In Erinnerung an ihn habe ich wieder einen Baum gezeichnet. Dieser Mammutbaum ist mir erst letztens in unserem botanischen Garten aufgefallen (obwohl eigentlich unübersehbar).

obviously not

Hier sind meine Entwürfe der beiden Haupt-protagonisten der Känguru-Chroniken. Eine sehr unterhaltsame und gesellschaftskritische Buchreihe von Marc-Uwe Kling. Besonders zu empfehlen sind die Hörbücher, vom Autor selbst gelesen. Die offizielle Comicversion hat mich aus diversen Gründen veranlaßt, mal eigene Zeichenversuche anzustellen. Verbesserungswürdig sind diese auf jeden Fall auch, am Ende bleibt eher die Frage: Würde ein Känguru eine Maske tragen?

Recently I enjoyed listening to Billy Joel's Greatest Hits, what triggered me to do this drawing. Even though I don't think it is a spot-on caricature, I like the drawing as it is.

"When do I get a mustache?"

Just wondering why the typical extraterrestrials never been shown with any facial hair, not even with a mustache?
