i've been experimenting lately with a new drawing style on procreate. it's still a work in progress but i'm already loving the results i'm getting so far! stay tuned for more soon...

My First Promotional Postcard

in 2011 i sent out my first illustration promo postcard. this image is no longer featured on my website so i thought it would be nice to post it here one more time – and i am glad to see that, even after all these years, this little fellow still brings me a great deal of joy! :-)

Laser Cut Stencil

testing/having some fun with the first prototype stencil i made for the "dossingos" paper dolls. the idea is to let the kids make their own paper clothes out of old magazines – or just about anything one can cut out with a scissor. it makes you feel like a true fashion designer! :-P

this time i was making quick "ink splash drawings" for the public at the amazing toy fair in nuremberg to help promote the new book series "pauli & friends“. it was my first year there – and i am already sure it will not be the last! many thanks to the great team of discovery books for this fruitful and inspiring collaboration!

i was drawing for the public once again at the book fair "buch wien 17". the theme for this year was "fantastical animals" – which we then created on the spot from an ink splash chosen by the visitor... it was, as always, a lot of fun! :-)
