X-mas newspaper Illustration.

Commissioned illustration for Luzerner Zeitung.
Only requirement: the christmas feeling! no politics, no cynicism, just christmas. ok.
sketches are done, just decided to do it in acrylics to get some thick sugar-coated kitsch... ups, is that cynicism already. i'll try to keep it honest and fun.

here the process so far, from thumbnail sketches to whatever...

plein air

Well, the painting en plein air has become a studio paining. The whole natural flow it had disappeared, but it now has this Wes Anderson-esque feeling, in my opinion. I like that.

painting en plein air

Last week, with the last november sun, i went painting outdoor, which i've been trying to do more often. One of the painings is this forest. I liked the brushstroke in the original (scroll down), but not the greyish color. So the last few days i've been overpainting it. It lost the fresh flow, but gained depth, and i really like it. I'll be posting some more of the plein air works soon.

Nice surprise

Today there was a surprise in my mailbox! Illustratoren-Schweiz and Grussformat printed a new series of postcards. One of my illustrations was selected. Today, they finally arrived. If anyone wants one, please contact me. You can buy one for 2.- or we can make some kind of nice barter deal.

First color attempt

Blocked in some colors. Probably needs lots of trying around till i get it right, but i quit like it for a first attempt.

Pencil Artwork

This week, my goal is to do the pencil artwork for the BAKOM-Comics as far as possible.

Here some different styles i tried. I decided to use pencils, because ink felt too clean. I hope it will look good printed. there will be a lot of photoshop work to do, cleaning up, coloring etc.

Pop-up Coworking

Last week i worked on the friends project again (just one day). Because i was at the pop-up coworking space some friends are hosting, i had to work on a project i don't need a computer for. So i took a break from the BAKOM-comics and had a great time in Wabern.
Thanks to all the pop-up coworking people!

Walking in the woods

A friend of mine is writing a book about friendship, and i get to contribute 2 double-spreads. It will be a little story about our time walking in the woods. Have to squeeze it in between other projects, like the Kaminski-Kids cover and drawing comics for BAKOM . I'll post on that soon.
