snow snow snow

Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Here in Germany we have lots of snow and a very white Christmas and I'm home at my parents house enjoying the holiday.

I'll be back next year with lots of exciting news and hopefully some new art!

Take care,

As promised here are some of my favorite artwork from Spectrum 17. I have to say that the majority of them definitely comes across better in print so this book is worth an investment.

I also would like to dedicate this entry to my best friend Julia who's studying far away in Oxford (well okay, techniqcally it's just a jump across the pond but you know sometimes it feels like she's far far away :( )and so unfortunately she can't take a look at it until maybe Christmas :).

Anyway I feel so honoured to be part of this book with my painting "Touch of Gold"!

Now onto the other great art:

Sam Weber "Absinthe Drinker" (

Petar Meseldzija "SPI Windows" (

That's right I'm updating more than once in a month. Great isn't it ? ;)

I have a new painting called "Bronze & Rubin" on my Homepage.

It has similar to "Poesie" a watercolor paper based background but this time I overlayed it about all of the painting and just erased a few parts around the face of the girl. I also added a pencil drawing and parts of a watercolor painting to the background as well as parts of it over the bird.I wanted to give this painting the feeling of a "coming to life" painting if you know what I mean, that's why for example the little red flower on the top left has a very 2 dimensional look (here I also increased the watercolor paper layer to that the structure becomes more visible).

I also was happy to receive my copy of Spectrum 17 today and let me tell you that it's just absolutely beautiful. So much inspiration, so much great art. I think what makes a good art book is when you keep starring at one picture or page for quite some time instead of just browsing through the book quickly. I plan to make an extra entry showing you my favorite art from the book but I would really recommened this to every one who is truly intrested in illustration and storytelling in paintings ;) I plan means I hope I find the time haha XD

again I didn't update as much as I promised. Maybe I just shouldn't apologize anymore and promise to be better since that won't happen anyway :)
Again a lot of happened in the last weeks, I finally have my own apartement and I can't really describe how awesome it is NOT to share everything with 10 other people, how nice it is to know that no one will eat your stuff away from the fridge and how peaceful it is to sleep without someone deciding to re-decorate their room in the middle of the night (I mean seriously?).

I come back to you with a new painting called "Poesie" (german for "Poesy"). This was another experiment. So lately I like to experiment a lot with techniques etc. For the background I decided to use real watercolor paper. I scanned it and laid it over with a filter. I think it gives this digital piece the feeling of a real painting and it also adds nice overall effects. In contrast I painted the figure and other stuff over the layer with the watercolor paper. I quite like how it came out.
Also the background is referenced from a landscape painting I have hanging in my room (or had since I moved and at the moment I can't quite bring myself to put nails into the wall) because it just had the right atmosphere for what I wanted to achieve and also was painted in the style I wanted this one to be (does that sound confusing?). I find this much more intresting than to reference from photos since those old styled oil paintings have a special magic that I really like. Overall it also makes the painting look less "polished".

So I have another little experiment in my mind for my next painting, we'll see how that plays out.

For now I hope you enjoy hearing from me again ;)

Something New

No I'm not talking about that cheesy movie just sharing a new painting ;)

I'm currently trying to paint something a bit more what you call contemporary fantasy. I like to try new things and it's always nice to do something other than painting fairies. This one in entitled "Home".

I've also added a sketch section to my website where I probably will post similar stuff like in the post before this one.

Oh and I'm probably moving apartements in October. Can't wait to finally have my very OWN apartement and not having to share everything with 10 other people. Yeah...that sounded intresting huh?

anyway, be safe-

I has feet

His name is Walter. He has feet.

Just some sketch.

Thinking of making a sketch section on my website...I have an idea for a sketchy project...that's what happens when you suffer from insomnia.

Hello folks,

It feels like ages since I updated my gallery but I'm finally back with a new painting called "Be still my troubled heart". The creature on the woman's shoulder is not supposed to be a specific animal but I looked at a mixture of swans, great white egrets and other birds for reference.
Ultimately this could be my version of a succubus. At first it looked way more scary and the tree was part of its wing. Somehow the composition looked weird so I decided to give it two full wings and it's up to your imagination if the tree with the roses (and with that the world that surrounds the girl) is part of the creature or if it's just part of the enviroment
Does the girl know that the creature is sitting on her shoulder? Is is good or evil? Why is she crying? I have an idea, but I leave it up to you tehee ;).

I hope I'm able to update more regularly now. I really am quite busy and together with some not-so-nice events that recently occurred in my life I really had nothing to add to my gallery. My fingers are itching to renew my website design but I have absolutely no time.

Good news are that my agency made a few great deals lately so expect some more news on that side soon.

That's pretty much it, I'll continue to try not to melt on my laptop (can't stand hot summer days like this) and hopefully will be back with something new soon.

Take care,


P.S Just want to shout out a Happy Birthday to my friend Julia- I know it's still two hours away, but just in case I won't meet you online today anymore. Fingers crossed that I'll be able to visit my hometown again soon!

Yes new blog (again).

Here are puzzles by Thos Holdsworth & Sons , available in New Zealand and Australia. If someone got a hold of them, tell me!

Mhm...I decided to put some more sketches up.
Anybody else wants a Chesire Cat? LOOOOOOVE it. But my favorite is probably the White Rabbit. I'm contemplating doing a full painting maybe....
Obviously inspired by the movie (the concept art made me go DAHVZNLPGTFHVGJF!), though my cat could be more chubby. I think I can't paint chubby things...gee I'm rambling.
Don't ask for new artwork please, I have lots of unfinished paintings but I really don't know when there will be new stuff.

Now for the fun:

Cheshire Cat: Oh, by the way, if you'd really like to know, he went that way.
Alice: Who did?
Cheshire Cat: The White Rabbit.
Alice: He did?
Cheshire Cat: He did what?
Alice: Went that way.
Cheshire Cat: Who did?
Alice: The White Rabbit.
Cheshire Cat: What rabbit?
Alice: But didn't you just say - I mean - Oh, dear.
Cheshire Cat: Can you stand on your head?
Alice: Oh!
