At the recent opening of the Urban Sketchers Berlin exhibition at AID ‘Miniaturen des Alltags’ I was photographed while sketching the people looking at my sketches of people (among other things).
And here some of the resulting sketches:
P.S. All of my drawings at the exhibition are for sale, and some of them can also be seen and purchased in my Etsy shop.
This drawing is featured in the month of January in my plant calendar for 2014.
I enjoyed making the calendar with my Oberbaumbrücken pictures so much that I decided to make a second one, this time with plant drawings. But of course I could not just repeat the first calendar with different images—that would not have worked for a number of reasons. Rather, I decided to rescan most of the pictures in much higher resolutions than before, so that I would be able to print them larger than life, to really zoom in on them. The calendar bit was pushed a bit more to the background and placed individually for each month to best accommodate the respective drawing. While doing that I fell in love with the details visible in the high resolution scans. Looking at the drawings and watercolours like this reminds me of the way I look at plants when I draw them. I look very closely, perceiving details of their structures and colours that escape me at other times. Here is an example from the month of February:
Some of the images are taken from sketchbook pages and thus neither available for sale nor likely to be exhibited any other way, like this one:
You can get the calendar here.
P.S. If you order things this week from me it is highly likely that they still arrive in time for christmas, at least within Europe.
So, without much attention on my part, ca. 20.of my people sketches, some small, some big, and some printed HUGE for the first time, wandered into a group exhibition of Urban Sketchers Berlin, opening this Saturday:
Die ausgestellten Originalskizzen, bisher veröffentlicht im Internetblog der Urban Sketchers und in Buchform, sind Mikro-Erzählungen und Verdichtungen des Alltages.
The exhibited original sketches, before published on the Urban Sketchers blog or book, are micro-narratives and condensations of every-day experiences.
