Finally it’s done!!! BOB’S NEW CD “HAMMERHEAD STEW” While Bob Erickson was busy recording his new CD, I tried my best to work out a cover for it. We decided to place him on the front – cooking his ‘famous’ Hammerhead Stew – while on the back, the hammerhead shark is cooking him in revenge.

“Be careful what you fish for” started originally with just the upper part of the illustration. Looking at my first sketches I figured that something was missing… some joke, like a fishtail for the mysterious woman, that is on the little girl’s hook. I wanted to work with a lot of pattern to give my intentional

“Mit beiden Beinen voll im Leben stehen” – “To have both feet on the ground” I wanted to do an illustration that ‘explains’ a German saying ‘word by word’. The exact translation would be: “to stand with both legs firmly in the life”, which -of course makes- no sense at all, but that is how

“Stripes” is about a little girl (and her cat) in a striped T-Shirt with a striped hair-do sitting on a striped armchair that is placed on a striped floor. Any more questions?

I just finished a new illustration of my ‘Woods series’. I drew it with pencil and colored it later digitally (Photoshop). I guess I like to draw the adventures kids can have with friendly monsters.
The last assignment for our Illustration Seminar Class was to illustrate another student or teacher. Our teacher would take photos of everybody, print them and then every student could pick one (facing upside down on the table). I got to paint our teacher – Chris Payne. I thought it would be fun to place him

This project was a self promotion for my website (‘about’ page). I started out with an almost realistic sketch of myself, which I didn’t like (see sketch to the right). I decided to work the sketch over only this time more abstract. The final result was an illustration of myself sitting on a high chair
