After obsessively reading a comic about a girl whose old fashioned braids were focused on quite often, I decided to make them a sketch topic. But I wanted them to be exaggeratedly huge. I had several images in my head and sketched them out in different styles. That was a real fun task. The little annoyed princess turned out to be quite funny.


A few weeks ago I created a hand lettering greeting card for a special occasion at work. We needed a greeting card for the Austrian actor Gregor Bloeb. It was actually quite fun and I have to do it again one time, maybe with better spaces in between the letters. I really like the colors though.

Life drawing

Due to scheduling problems we had no model to pose for us (nakedly). The man organizing the current sessions then took it upon him to strike a few poses. This was quite fun and in addition for free! Somehow this time some of the other participants looked at my drawings and complimented them. That was very nice :-)

Figure drawing #03.16

Last week I had the opportunity to go life drawing again. The last few weeks I didn't really have time for any drawing, so it was really nice  when I got the information that there would be a figure drawing session in Innsbruck. First I was afraid I might be a little rusty, but to my surprise I was quite content with some of the drawings! :-)
And I really liked the poses the model made!

Happy nude year!

This year started with two sessions of figure drawing. Hopefully it will continue with lots of possibilities two paint and draw. I am already involved in two hilarious projects!  Looking forward to them :-)
But first of all I have to get rid of this annoying cold I caught last year...

Owl Tattoo

In autumn a colleague approached me, asking, if I could design her a cute female owl as cover-up tattoo. She had two designs in mind and wondered if I could make a combination of both. I drew two sketches which she liked instantly. It was unclear which colors the tattoo would have in the end, so I made a black and white illustration.
The tattoo came out really nicely. Only the reflections in the eyes are missing. Still I am quite happy about my first tattoo design on skin!

Here's a quick inktober sketch of our black cat Luna. Today she reminded a little vampire! She is such a wonderful inspiration.

This year I decided to take part in "inktober". I don't have time to draw every day, but when there's time, I really enjoy using black ink with a brush and add some colored ink. Many years ago I used to draw with ink quite a lot.
So far, these are my results:

Sporty sketch

This summer a lot of my friends went climbing. I tagged along two times to watch them and sketch a bit of the stony environment. The sport looked more interesting than I'd imagined, so I decided to try it myself. It was a bit frightening to me, but it was also exciting. And the best thing about it: it didn't hurt my tennis elbow! I still have that condition in my arms from three years back and couldn't do any sport without feeling that I was hurting or overstraining my arms. So now I hope to get better and strengthen my arms again!

Another very nice side effect: Whenever we go to the indoor climbing hall, I take my sketchbook with me, because there are so many people, perspectives and movements. People are concentrated most of the time, so they don't notice me sketching. For a certain reason I haven't figured out yet, the guys tend to wear no shirts, which means muscle studies for me :)
