Live painting tomorrow

My dear friends in Stuttgart,
if you want to you can visit me tomorrow in Stuttgart at the s.Oliver store, Königstr. 1 between 2 pm and 11 pm. I will be customizing totes there and would be happy if you came along to say hey!



I have a faun crush since I read Oscar Wildes poem:

In the Forest:

Out of the mid-wood’s twilight
Into the meadow’s dawn,
Ivory limbed and brown-eyed,
Flashes my Faun!

He skips through the copses singing,
And his shadow dances along,
And I know not which I should follow,
Shadow or song!

O Hunter, snare me his shadow!
O Nightingale, catch me his strain!
Else moonstruck with music and madness
I track him in vain!

Huge film scene illo

You might remember my post about my sweet girls who are producing the KILLING ALL THE FLIES serie. They asked my to create 2 huge woodpanels for a film set. I was completely free in motive only the colours were given. Above you see a detail. This is my entry for this week´s Illustration Friday theme "intention". You can find more pictures of this in my flickr!
I am so excited to see the finished film scene with my artwork in it! I will keep you updated!




Last week I fought the Kunstschlacht, the Battle of Arts. I was extremely excited but once I stood at the stage and held the marker in my hand I calmed down and started to have fun! There were incredibly 300 visitors there to watch Jumi Jami and me painting! At the first round 2 words were randomly chosen and we had 45 minutes to create something. The words were asylum 2.0 and abracadabra. I painted a raven kind of thing that gave shelter to a cat and a facebook like button to include the 2.0 element.
Second task was to create an image of our opponent in 30 minutes. Jumi Jami wrote a vegetarian cookbook so I surrounded her with greens. In the last round we´ve got a piece of wood with colour splashes on it and we could perform freely. It was so much fun! The battle was even broad casted by Regio TV! Thanks so much Peter and Benny for the organization of that event and thanks to B.ash for shooting more pictures.
