Math paintings (Cornelsen Klick! 7)

How time flies! Not so very long ago my Klick!-children were little 3rd-grade-brats and whoosh, they are half-adult teenagers in the 7th class!
The seventh Klick!-book was published at the beginning of this school year and as always the care of my pupils had been a whale of a time! I'm just working on the eighth book and I'm gradually getting stressed by my kids... puberty and stuff... you know that ;)
Wie doch die Zeit vergeht! Vor nicht langer Zeit waren meine Klick-Kinder noch kleine Blagen inner dritten Klasse und schwupps, schon sind sie halberwachsene Teenager in der 7ten!
Das siebte Klick!-Buch ist Anfang dieses Schuljahres erschienen und wie immer hat die Betreuung meiner Schüler einen Heidenspaß gemacht! Ich sitz gerade am achten Band, und langsam wird's anstrengend mit den Bälger... Pubertät und so... man kennt das ja ;)

And this is the current picture of the 7th class! For comparison only the picture of the 6th class!
Und hier das aktuelle Gruppenbild der siebten Klasse!

Thursday, November 24, 2011 the final version.

I also like this first sepia coloration step. Has a nice antique charm, I think...
Ich mag auch diesen ersten Colorationsschritt. Hat irgendwie nen schönen antiquen Charme, find ich...

Little Sketch Dump

I've been really busy with book projects the last weeks, that turned out very well, but I'm afraid I can't show anything from it yet. Cos the books aren't published yet. The old problem. BUT here are some pictures from my sketchbook I've drawn in the meantime. And I post them uncommented :)
Ich war in den letzten Wochen schwer mit zwei Buchprojekten beschäftigt, die wirklich hübsch geworden sind, aber aus denen ich leider noch nix zeigen kann, weil die Bücher halt noch nicht erschienen sind. Das alte Problem. ABER hier ein paar Bilder aus meinem Skizzenbuch, die ich in der Zwischenzeit gezeichnet hab. Ich poste die einfach mal unkommentiert :)

ok, comment: I've slightly pimped up this sketch with PS :) 

second comment: I've obviously pimped this sketch with PS too!

...and I'm not talking about inhuman torture, but about the fifth jigsaw puzzle I have illustrated for Schmidtspiele! It's from the Schmidt's Katze series again and this time S.'s C. plays hide and seek with it's meal...erm, friends, I mean :)
...und ich sprech nich von unmenschlicher Folter, sondern von dem fünften Puzzle, dass ich für Schmidtspiele illustriert hab. Es ist wieder aus der Schmidts Katze-Reihe, und dieses Mal spielt S.s K. mit seinem Essen... öhm, mit seinen Freunden... verstecken :)  

Best entertainment for crappy weather :) Beste Unterhaltung bei beschissenem Wetter :)

A Rat Called Marriage

Long time no rat on this usually so rat contaminated blog... so this is the rat I've drawn for a friend's wedding.
Es gab schon lange keiner Ratten mehr auf diesem sonst so Ratten verseuchten Blog... also hier eine Ratte, die ich zur Hochzeit eines Freundes gezeichnet hab: Die Ratte namens Ehe.

Imagekampagne Berliner Ordnungsämter

 For the Berlin advertiser DauthKaun I've illustrated the current image campaign of the Berliner Ordnungsämter (Berlin regulatory authority).
Vor kurzem hab ich für die Berliner Werbeagentur DauthKaun die aktuelle Imagekampagne der Berliner Ordnungsämter illustriert.

Eight colorful info-flyer give the citizen an understanding of their different major tasks to get away from the bad repute of the annoying parking ticket writer (don't know what "Knöllchen" is in english O_o) Next to the flyer the campaign contained inner city posters and an image film that was played in Berlin cinemas (what means, that I made my first experiences in theatrical motion picture :P)
Acht Info-Flyer bringen dem Bürger dabei die Hauptaufgaben des Ordnungsamts näher, um vom Ruf des lästigen Knöllchenschreibers wegzukommen. Neben den Flyern bestand die Kampagne aus Plakaten, sowie einem Film, der in den Berliner Kinos vor den Vorstellungen gezeigt wurde (ich hab also quasi meine ersten Kinofilmerfahrungen gemacht :P)

Der Karlsruher Flohmarkt-Floh / The Karlsruher Flea Market Flea

For this year's flea market season in Karlsruhe I have fittingly drawn this funny flea. The posters are printed and the ad agency I have done this for - HOBdesign - was so kind to send me a photograph of the poster in the wild! Looks really nice, I think :)

Panorama Sketching

The sight from my window sketched with a biro on six double sketchbook pages.

and merged with photoshop to a panorama. I have really been suprised how well the pages fit together!

and I got a sunburn from sitting in the window! Great :)

Egyptian Girls & Mummified Corpses

Alternation is important! So after cute cat games with little mice, now to something completely different: NECROPHILIA (muhaha)
The second issue of the German Girls & Corpses-magazine is out now and again it's filled with the trashiest articels and picture series you can find on the German market.

And after I published the lovely piranha mermaids in the last year's G&C, I was able to contribute a picture to this issue too. It's Nefertitti and Cleopatra teasing a mummy that's already pretty stiff... :P

If you like barely dressed girls playing with rotten bodies, I warmly recommend this mag to you!
But I doubt that you will find G&C at the store around the corner, so better order it directly at Raptor Publishing!

Schmidts Katze & die Mäusebande

Also ich sach ma: Getz gehtet ab wie Schmidt's Katze! (this is a German saying and I think it means the same as "it takes off like a scalded cat" or something.)
Schmidts Katze from Schmidt Spiele is a fast hide and seek memory game for kids of four years of age and over. Slip into the role of a mouse and try to hide from the (friendly) Schmidt's cat (it just wanna play with the mice... honestly :)

And I like most that they have named one of the eight mouse-character after me: Timo Tollkühn :))
(engl. Timo Temerarious <-- that will definitely become my new gangster rapper nick name ;)

Get the game on and do you already know the "Schmidts Katze" puzzle?
