I studied graphic design and Illustration in Freiburg/Germany, now I'm based in the United Kingdom where I work as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator and photographer. I have always been inspired by nature itself, as well as fantasy and fiction literature, movies and comics. I illustrate and paint mostly in traditional media; mainly acrylic and pencil, sometimes oil, as well as digital in Photoshop or Illustrator. |
I hope you like my artwork, any comments are warmly welcome, please don't be offended if I can't always find the time to answer.

I find myself very unexpected on a short break in the Cotswold! My in-laws booked a holiday home, but then decided not to go. While I find myself on this 'holiday' ...stuck in a converted barn in the middle of nowhere - with no phone signal, Internet only works vaguely in one corner of the room, no hot water and a grumpy man by my side suffering from man flu, I thought I might as well use our 'holiday time' for some drawing for #inktober2014
I am really annoyed though, I packed all my brushes but left the black ink behind!!! I had planned to practise my skills in using a brush for outlines, but had to use a marker for this instead. Although it works well with markers, I find working with a brush gives a lot more options for dynamic lines. Shame, really. And don't say 'uhm, just buy some': We are completely out in the sticks, the closest Supermarket is 12 miles away, and the closest Starbucks 15 miles....
The area is known for their rich pheasant hunting grounds. The pheasants are indeed amazing here! I have never seen so many of them in one place. And they are shameless. There are hundreds, they dig up every plant pot, hide in the chicken coop, the stables, in trees, sit on the car and lie under it...
I could do with the hot water back on, though. I know, cold showers are supposed to be healthy, but no. It's not pleasant.
