I sometimes do drawings like this as present together with the book. This actually for my grandmother. The reason why Brooks plays an electric guitar is that she doesn´t approve my main hobby besides the one I made my profession ( I love Stratocasters, but mine is sunburst not red) ….. This is watercolor and pencil.

Here is the link tho the making of the book:

By the way I just finished the Diercke Kinderatlas. Hurray!

Animation, storyboard, Uncategorized

Here some Storyboards I did for Tradewind Pictures in Cologne. The film premiered two weeks ago. The brunt of the Storyboards were done by my friend Albert Radl , because at some point the they thought I had moved abroad. Hard Luck… It was big fun working on this. There is a third part in the making, but I have too much work doing illustrations for books at the moment, so I declined.

I hope it does well at the box office. The film is really nice.

I have slight reservations posting these on blog mainly dedicated to children´s book illustrations. In a way they are byproducts. I am working on illustrations for a prestigious non- fiction children´s book and not surprisingly I can´t show anything yet. I do one of these per week. At the moment I like painting nudes once again, basically because they allow more freedom than portraits. I always think portraits should look like the person portrayed so feel a lot freer painting these. They all are tempera and ink.
