Some chairs left ...

Sleepless Hippo

... what a night! Change of weather can be very inspiring. Had that same feeling some days ago and did this drawing afterwards. Hope the weather won't change on a daily basis the next weeks and steady up a little.

I wonder what happened to the mouse in the wall, we discovered a couple of weeks ago, as she ran from behind the stove across the kitchen up to the sink, to fetch some rose-fertiliser ... maybe she grew to a giant mouse .... I think of a HULK-mouse after having eaten the fertiliser --- blasting the walls.

Won't chicken out!

What ever will happen within the next roundabout 8 weeks! I won't chicken out! Just keep cool - nothing's falling on my head .. not even a piece of heaven, you little chicken! You're not getting boiled you are getting tested and examined! No one really gets hurt --- at least not physically ...

SC 11 - The Big Picture

It seems, every other Sketchcrawl a certain subject comes to my pens ... last time,, on SC #5 (Pakistani Relief SC) I had oillamps and other cans or pots. This time, it happened after a while, that I mainly drew and drew my attention to people's bags ;-)
Well, if you want to see them detailed, please click on the pictures. I only could draw all of them within a range of two to five minutes as I was sitting at crossing first and later on at the main railway station forecourt ... and please do not forget to watch out for the rest of us at SC-Forum!

Get up, stand up, ...

.. go out for the crawl! It's September 23rd, ladies and gentlemen. Time to get out of your huddly houses and crawl thorugh the streets and draw whatever you SEE. Have fun alltogether! See the results later on here at Sketchcrawl-Forum.

Verschlafen - Overslept

.. aus gegebenem Anlass eine kleine Nachreichung .. oh, I forgot, that there are some internationals about to read this, too ... : ... at the instance of the late start into the day, due to a friend's marriage last night and the lazy game my favorite football-team showed today, I post this on here:
... I actually do not have one of these fancy nightgowns. Have yourself a nice day ;-)

Teachers and Pandas

There is a colleague at my school, who is supposed to be using his expander in class ... well, he is no sports teacher, isn't he? No, he is teaching computers ... well, I came up with play of words. Saying: "The former panda (ex-panda) of Mr. S. from DO" ...

frame 1 - Tell me a story from a storm
f2 - once upon a time it's been totally windless
f3 - suddenly

... woooow, it's been hot since a while. Football WorldCup is over. Desert's temperature is gone after six weeks (!!!!) ... what a summer. So now I could turn on the computer again, without giving us another spring of heat. And look, what I found: my pre-summer summerstorm-comic. See you soon again, sun, son?

Logo? Logo!

... did this first sketch for a vocational school in town.

Finally 'applied design' again.

The colours are the ones they use in their CI - the lettering isn't it yet. But close to it .. we'll see.

Animated Paperbacks

Jacamon and Matz somehow animated and added sound to one of their first comebooks frame by frame.

Wonderful idea.

Take a look and listen to the subversive sound here. To be read in an English or Dutch version.

I nearly forgot how he was spelled

... but Wayn Harris reminded me off the original surname's writing: Pan. That just reminds me of my frying pan called Peter. Enough joking for today.

Cherish or Perish

Enough of watching and reading? Cherish this music and listen to the lines! This isn't a suggestion - it's your duty. Don't ask what you rmusic can do for you. Ask yourself, what you can do for good music.

Urmel is back on screen

Well now, there it is: The trailer of "Urmel aus dem Eis" (Urmel out of the ice ... well somewhat foolish translated) Modernized ... this one below has been the pciture I related to ever since my early years of reading ;-)

See how the illustrator was allowed to put his signature on a book's front cover - times are defintely changing .... and this one is the picture of the popular 'puppetized' TV-Show. Wonderful voices, still!

Had a second ...

... waited a second. So I tried out some new pens and pastell and scanned and posted and ... - Derwent Drawing Chocolate 6600 (outlines) - very nice and smooth; and a cheap but delightful Jaxell verde olivia chiaro 47712 the funny skin-tone he is having after his first flight to the moon - well nearly there, just wait a second and have a second ... you'll be there soon.

Is Beaver Behaviour Be(h)averiouristic?

click to enlarge

Well, I've been of for a while - off the blog. And, yes, I had the chance to take off to Hamburg for a couple of days, to explore my new place to stay beginning summer 2007. Exiting! Yes, and as the city lays next to some waters, building lay on roads called Holzdamm (wood dam) - so a business school I went to visit laid on such a street, inviting me to make up a thank-you-card for some nice people I talked to.

Translation for free here: "The subtitle saying: lately at the Public Beaverschool Wood Dam." The teacher beaver saying: ".. well, let's put the question in other words: What is a wood dam made of?"

So, folks, get on going and naming here.

Time to travel again ...

.. I found one of these "ever-popping-up-where-I-have-been-to-maps" and finally tried out one for myself:

And I finally saw: yes, it's been a while since. You definetely should earn more money in less time, to have a money and time to take a round trip to some of the grey places in that map.

"I am a deeheentiist ..."

... Steve Martin and several others sang in the musical "Little Shop of Horrors". I did not, but I had some deeper insights into the dent-business, as I drew some illustrations for a prophylactic dent-learning-course. No, not for the dents - stupid - for children, who should learn about it.

This on above was a sketch not to be taken - chew gum after you eat and the dent-devils stay away. In fact they STAY away, 'cause the cannot move ...

reacting - creating

Enrico posted Walt Stanchfield's notes on taking notes. Talking about it he came up with a simile between the one who does takes notes or sketches and the one who doesn't. Saying the note taker is more active, whereas the others just react instead of acting and changing the world.

So just after having closed the blog it came to my mind, to shuffle the letters in those words,
so that passiv becomes activ,
reactors become creators,
reaction becomes creation.

Maybe that's why I feel better and powerful and acting when sketching - maybe in those moments I am acting instead of waiting for the things to come by - maybe I am creator (<-reactor) ...

NiPriCo *)

*) Nitro-Print-Copy

Thanks to Kathrin's tipps on one of here pictures I changed her inspiration a little - by accident. I mis-remembered the process and wiped nitro on an imprint (here: a pizza-card-board) and transfered it onto paper.

This picture you see, is a second print from the swashed cardboard: I kept it dry but drenched a sheet of paper with nitro and lay it on the packaging. So this is it ... colours are not 100% the same, due to scanning ;-)

And hereby I open up a contest on what kind of pizza was in that package. Take a guess and send me or post an answer - for mail look out at the end of the blog.

Sketchcrawl - The Blog

Enrico opened up a new Sketchblog here ... read more in his copied original text here:

New Blog!

February 7, 2006 at 12:14 pm

A new idea in the making, the SketchCrawl-Blog: a communal blog with different contributors. Focused on sharing everything about drawing out there in the field. Ranging from materials discussion: a new favorite sketchbook? a new find of a pencil? A great folding stool? -to thoughts, questions and even polls about sketching and journaling. What’s your favorite place to go sketch? What invariably catches yours and your pencil attention ?

Some new pictures from the Pakistani Earthquake relief SKETCHCRAWL can be found here. With some notes on the weird afternoon I had in one of the Dortmund museums.

Give us today the blog that we need, ...

... and forgive us our wrongs.

.. as a play of words I also changed the seemingly sounding German word for wrongs (Schuld) by the German word "Schund" - which means shoddy.

Why I did change the "Lord's Prayer" into a "Mainboard's Prayer"? No, not because of the uprising uproars against published and non-published Danish cartoons on Mohammed ...

... no, it's just because of an article Alex Ruehle wrote in the "Sueddeutsche Zeitung" Feb 3, 2006 on the internet's esp. blog's hype, developing to some kind of mystic salvation chitchat.

Drawing from life or a photo

Danny Gregory started a post on drawing from life or photography. This - besides my comments - is what came up in me a couple of days later and then briskly scribbled on a scrap paper: Click to enlarge and read.
