Over 3.5 million people and a few thousand foxes live in Berlin, and supposedly the latter can be seen just about everywhere but so far I only ever saw one single fox. It was a couple of years back when I was on my way back home after a late course at uni.Continue reading “A Surprising Encounter”

A couple of months ago, I sent my dear friend and author Mary Cathleen Clark an email attached with one of my drawings and asked her, if she would like to write something that would go well with it. And she came up with this one hell of an awesome poem! I didn’t post our combinedContinue reading “Poker Face”
A Chinese Character
This new portrait study gives you a hint as to where I want to travel to someday 😉 I´ve always been fascinated by Asia, especially China and Japan and remember with startling clarity giving impressions of a japanese dancer before family members when I was very young. In order to do so, I borrowedContinue reading “A Chinese Character”
Animal Quick Sketching
The summer holidays started this week and the whole family went to the Berlin Zoo to celebrate! 🙂 We had lots of fun, fantastic weather and stuffed ourselves with delicious ice cream! It was also a little premiere for me, as I tried myself the first time on animal quick sketching. It came asContinue reading “Animal Quick Sketching”
A Bashful Beauty
I sketched this portrait with Audrey Hepburn in mind, an amazing actress I´ve always admired very much, not only for her stunning and elf-like beauty but for her tremendous skills as a dancer and actress. I freely admit that this drawing does not really look like her…I will have to practice more to getContinue reading “A Bashful Beauty”
A Papuan Portrait
I´m back on track with my project about learning how to draw faces. After having practiced drawing the individual features like eyes, noses, ears and mouths seperately, the next step is to combine those features now! For this I use a couple of books from which to draw different faces. The drawing above showsContinue reading “A Papuan Portrait”
Same Face, Different Angle
This drawing is from the same broken plaster face I shared with you last saturday. This time though it shows its profile. Let me tell you, it really is not easy to draw the same face from different angles and have them look more or less the same! 😉 What I noticed however is,Continue reading “Same Face, Different Angle”
Et tu, Brute?
Here comes another broken plaster face I did a drawing of. The accusing expression on it somehow reminded me of the classical phrase “Et tu, Brute?” (You too, Brutus?), which Julius Caesar is supposed to have uttered whilst receiving the final stab by his friend and adopted son Brutus. Although there´s is no evidenceContinue reading “Et tu, Brute?”
Finally my eyesight has improved and I don´t need to go out with my sunglasses anymore – well, at least not when it´s cloudy. 🙂 That means I´m back to my sketchpad and pencil – yippieeeeh! 🙂 Having experienced how it is like to be blind as a bat, I did a drawing ofContinue reading “Broken Face”
Am I too nosy?
I hope I´m not too nosy – I know, it´s childish, but the pun is absolutely intended here 😉 – when I ask what type of nose you´ve got? 😉 Mine is rather small and straight 🙂 Please feel free to pick out a nose (“No, I did not say: please feel free toContinue reading “Am I too nosy?”
