Some New Listings in my Etsy Shop


Done with a pen in water-soluble but light proof ink, worked over with washes of water and more pen lines on the still wet paper, ca. 25 x 33 cm, 250 €.

So recently I got reminded by somebody looking for Christmas gifts (Christmas doesn’t play a large role in my life, and I had completely forgotten that this is something people do…) that my Etsy store was all empty. I’ve changed that now and put up mostly some of my recent Berlin based sketches, the ones […]

Menschen in der OEG


OEG 1

I sketched all the people in this drawing while doing the rounds in the circular ‘OEG’ train line which goes from Mannheim to Weinheim to Heidelberg and back to Mannheim, covering the rush hours from ca. 6:30 to 10:00 am, and then selectively covered it in several layers of acrylic medium playing with those bits […]

Deconstruction of the Freudenberg Facilities at Boxhagener Str.


Freudenberg 12 07 31

This (de)construction site around the corner from where I live caught my eye when I was back from Weinheim. The buildings being undone here were facilities of the Freudenberg company, which originated in, well, Weinheim, and is the single most important employer there…

More Oberbaumbridges


15 June, watercolor, 25 x 35 cm, 250 €.

Some earlier drawings from this series can be seen here and here. Currently I seem to have a tendency to ever more tightly defined series. Not “30 plants in jars in different media”, but rather “50 drawings of this specific plant in black ink”. Subjects just don’t get boring, I always want to keep going. […]

More of the Oberbaum Drawings


5 June, attempt at exact architectural rendering, watercolor over pencil. Gave up on the level of detail of the steel structure.

Reminder: I will show some of these at the Open Air Gallery art fair on this very same bridge on Sunday 1 July. My booth is number 10 — you’re more than welcome to come by and say hello if you’re in town…

Oberbaumbrücke: First Glimpse of a Series I’ve been working on


Detail.

For almost a month now I’ve been sketching the same place almost every morning. I’ve started this as my fix of loose drawing before the day’s work of making huge drawings of Weinheim, which I enjoy a lot, but which also require a lot more planning and slightly tedious actions in their execution than quick […]

Last pages from my post-Kaufbar sketchbook


Page 16b

These were done at the end of March/Beginning of April, shortly before I handed the sketchbook in as part of my application portfolio for The Drawing Year. Hence I did not get around to scanning them until now. Feels like winter was a life time ago. I’m working a lot, even on another project or […]

More March Sketches and a Double Sketchbook


Page 06b detail.

These are from the same sketchbook as the last posting, but it is a twofold sketchbook: It is half made from very bright, almost blueish Dorée 200 drawing paper, whose color I love, which is a good paper for dry media, and I have a 50 m roll lying around under my desk which will […]

First Post Travel Sketchbook


Page 03 detail

My travel sketchbooks were of various sizes and formats, not one exactly like any of the others. When I came back I started producing drawings for my exhibition on single sheets of paper so they could be framed, also it was cold and I wasn’t spending much time out and about, so for a while […]

Lots of People on Public Transport in January


A Lot of People on Public Transport

I’ve been looking for a way to make my public transport drawings ‘exhibitable’, take them out o sketchbooks somehow, mostly by using folded single sheets of different sizes, like here. This is another attempt, not just putting the people on a single sheet, but trying to convey the feeling of looking through a whole sketchbook, […]
