Wrapping paper

On this wrapping paper you will meet some guests from the Maki Party, and two music performers from the "Katta Orchestra".

Maki Party

This is a postcard motif I created for "Die Unverzichtbaren" - a postcard set by the illustrators of Darmstadt, to be sold at our next group exhibition in February 2010.

Illustration Friday: Wrapped no.3

Have you ever seen the eggs of a dogfish? The baby-sharks are wrapped in their eggshell yet you can see them moving around... I thought they'd suit this girl well who is wrapped in her hair (and thoughts maybe). By the way, your dogfish is called a cat-shark in German. :)

Illustration Friday: Wrapped no.2

This one is based on a photo of Björk.

Illustration Friday: Wrapped no.1

Last week's topic "wrapped" triggered a whole series of illus.
With this one I wanted to try some new
colouring techniques (Light! Shadow! And the sandals really are golden/bronze-coloured, not yellow) so I made a quick sketch of my feet for a start. Last week we also had the hottest day of the year, 37°C... too hot to break new ground! ;) So I came up with this instead. I'll post the new version as soon as it's finished.

Illustration Friday: Breezy

This is an old one which I thought was suitable for this week's topic. It's part of my diploma, an illustrated short-story of T.C. Boyle. This is where the story culminates...

"Illustre Gestalten", an exhibition of illustrators in Darmstadt

Last year some illustrators from the region of Darmstadt started a regular meeting once a month (as it already exists in Frankfurt and many other German towns). Soon more and more illustrators joined the group, all of them very happy to quit their lone wolf's existence and to meet some colleagues!
This year in January we had this two-day-group-exhibition in which 17 illustrators participated, most of all to show the people of Darmstadt that such a thing as an illustrator exists! ;)
It was quite successful and all of us enjoyed it very much. It was my first exhibition and I didn't have much to show - most of it you've already seen in this blog - but to show your art in a public place is a great experience, I recommend that very much! ;)
