I will be exhibiting in the UK with the Guildford Art Society from the 18th October - 8th of November. It's the first time for me to participate, I have only been promoted to 'exhibiting member' earlier this year. 

I have a few invitations left to the preview evening which is this Friday, from 6pm to 8pm. If any of you gentle folks like to join me for the preview and maybe a few drinks, send me a note and I shall send you an invitation. I would love to see you there x

Claudia Hahn
Artist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
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.

October storm #inktober 20 by Heliocyan
October storm #inktober 20

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.

#Inktober 2 by Heliocyan
#Inktober 2
...aaaand another one for #Inktober, done with the sepia ink liner I bought not long ago. 
It's the start on sketches for a commission I promised a friend long, *very* long ago... 'It's not urgent' is simply nothing which should be ever mentioned to me. Even if it isn't. ;)

Just in case you wonder, 
I haven't discovered a new mythical cat/dog creature! ...you can stop squinting at it from all angles! It is (supposed to be) one of those very small dog breeds. I'm just trying out poses, with my cat as model. Hence the dog ears & cat body.

Hiding in the crowd by Heliocyan
Hiding in the crowd
My homage to London's Camden Town, which I love for it's cultural diversity, vibrant buzz and creativity. It's the most colourful place I have seen in London and it's very overwhelming. MTV has it's European headquarter there, and Amy Winehouse was a resident, amongst other musicians. (I hid her in the crowd, I hope you can spot and recognise her? ) 

I just entered this to the the AOI & London transport poster competition, which asked for colourful entries, reflecting one's favourite places in London. It's not my usual painting style, I thought I try out something new. Especially as my style would simply not fit the poster design they are after. I like getting out of my artistic comfort zone, at least every now and then! ;)

Acrylic on paper, the size of a large poster.

Hey,
I just wanted to say that you inspired me in this painting which I did as an art trade A king without crown by Woodswallow
I tried to pour a bit more love in the background as I normally do, because I love your super-detailed backgrounds... Thank you for being such an inspiration :)
Yours, Woodswallow
