Two more leftovers from the book I am working on. Looking forward to use them somewhere else.
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:
A sketch in Cologne I did a few weeks ago. It was raining and we had to fend of a slightly disturbed woman who wanted to model for us (and deliver a monologue of the most boring kind).
