Working on a new christmas card (this is very much a Cologne special…). This pencil drawing sketchbook page.
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.
An unused by-product from a job I am working on. The colours are a little to bright. I would have worked on those, but they were replaced by an illustration of another kind of penguin….
The film “Asyl in Deutschland” which I designed, animated ( with a little help) and directed wins „Bestes Engagement einer Initiative/Institution“ at the Film Festival Cologne. To learn more about the project, which was initiated by Philipp Stendebach and Hanna Geissendörfer (among others) visit:
