Time to freshen up

After roughly 10 years I thought it is also about time to change the header image of my website. Played around with different versions, this is what I settled on for now.

Any comments and feedback are more than welcome.

Wine Time

I do like a good wine. This is the last of the 100 people challlenge. Although I am already continuing with it and have reached #105 by now. I really do love to see the improvement I went through and how easy it has become to sketch people. I just need to work more on the speed. As I feel sometimes its takes me way too long.

Cheers and have a great weekend!

Ink All the Way

Still on the ink. Yep, loving it. But also missed some colour. So I ended up adding a bit of watercolour to this drawing. Below you can compare the before and after. Which one do you prefer?

This is also number 99 in the series of One Week 100 People I did at the beginning of April.

Book Release!

After several edits I am happy and proud to announce that my/our first children´s book is available to order!

With my friend Norbert, who wrote the story, we have been working on it for a while now and are happy to finally have the print version ready!

The story is about two best friends that find out how long a working week can be! A week at work can often feel very long and sometimes, not everyone is happy with it. In the end though, it pays to be patient.… and Kobbi, the little pug, is very patient.

Learn more about the book here or go straight to Amazon to order it.

What you looking at?- Part II

Number 91 in One Week 100 People. Let´s see what else the week has to offer. So far it was a bucket of paint I had ordered! Could be worse I guess.
