Corrections

I did this illustration for a latin textbook, but then I thought, the horses yokes seemed a bit too modern to me...


So I gave it a little redo following more recent reconstructions

Christmas Market

I saw this fellow hacking wood for a sort of traditional bakery on the Christmas Market in Essen. Unfortunately for him the place was rather small and he seemed not to be used to such kind of labor, all dressed up in a traditional bakers dress. But as it was so cold that he hardly could warm up with the exercise so he wore a huge modern hoodie below...

More artists in the dark

Cinematic Work

Yesterday a filme I worked on here and there over the past months premiered. It is a docu-info-fiction-drama called Krefeld, Geheimnisse der Seidenstadt. The Movie promotes the different forms of industries based in the former city of silk and discloses a lot of secrets to a wider audience. My brother Stefan played the major character, a "star guide", that leads the viewer through the movie. It was created by Matthias Heuser and Mica Crossmedia. I supplied eight pictures showing an outlook on what the city of Krefeld might look like in three hundred years from now...

Artists in the Dark

Between 1982 and late 1987 I worked as a stagehand with Blitz Music. Amongst many artists it was working for Motörhead that was most interesting. After ending my work in the concert business I lost track with them before went to see them in 1991 again. The crew was kind of puzzled why I payed for to see the band and their sound engineer Dave "Hobbs" Hillesden invited me for the coming years to go and see them from the Mixing Desk. In the coming years I did do many drawings of the crew doing their work before and during the shows.

I still do it every time I get to see the guys! These pictures, drawn on an iPad 2 show Stefan on the lighting mixer, and Arnie on the sound-mixingdesk. They are both excellent artists in their own right who bring the shows to the audience's senses. And they were great last night in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Mourning Crowd for Lady Diana



Just flipped through an old sketchbook. I found this drawing I did on August 31st 1997. We were in London the day Lady Diana died in Paris. Somebody told us that there was a huge crowd in front of Kensington Palace. So we went over and this is what it was like. Not so big a crowd but rather puzzled in disbelief...
