I found a stash of old cardboard in the basement the other day. I will be painting 6 illustrations of a creation cycle, so I figured that I could use the cardboard as a sketch base. I drew a bunch of fish, portraits and flying birds of different kinds. I am also currently writing a … Continue reading Look at the Birds…
I have a commission for a set of creation-themed illustrations. Since I have a rough idea what the layout and style will be, I have started doing some more detailed study sketches of animals. After all, what creation is complete without animals? (Sorry for the poor image quality, the lighting was not that great when … Continue reading Illustrations Sketches!

It's cold and rainy these days and it gets dark before 5 PM. This is not the kind of thing to encourage a person. But luckily there is a lot you can do indoors, like studying, or reading, or making costumes. I finally could bring my mannequin out from the art room in the basement … Continue reading Some Updates
I am a few days late with this, but here are some pictures of the dorm living room. It's still missing some pillows and some new pictures on the wall, but apart from that, this project is basically done. :) Also, the rhino mask is now varnished and done. I think I like it as … Continue reading A Dorm, a Rhino, an Elephant!
It's 2 weeks before the next semester begins and we are taking the time to renovate the dorm living room. It probably has been in it's before-state since it was built over 30 years ago. The room was just asking for a make-over! I have been working with another student on this project. so far … Continue reading Renovating the Dorm!
I will start school on Monday again. I had several open projects to finish and am glad that they are coming together.

And it's done! :) It took a lot of planning and work, but I am glad for the results. … Continue reading The Illustrations are done!
The illustrations are coming along and these are the updates. Three more illustrations to go for this project!
I got a comission for 10 illustrations and have the priviledge of using my new graphic tablet for the job. I am getting used to the cintiq and can say that I really enjoy it so far. Here's the first illustration, showing the main character's family in Hanoi, Vietnam. I'm really excited about this project … Continue reading First Illustration on the new Cintiq!
I had to get up unexpectedly early this morning because my brother overslept and needed a ride to his workplace by 7AM. This was not to my liking... but while I was listening to the radio I learned an unexpected fun fact: There is a German saying to describe that all is well, it literally … Continue reading Of Butter, Oil and Clay
It's summer and so I have time for other projects, including comission jobs. So if you e.g. want a cabinet painted/refinished, a painting, a sculpture, a poem, or something else, you can let me know! I'd be glad to make something for you. Above are some examples of comission-work/ stuff I could do as … Continue reading Some Summer Comissions!
You know that feeling when you are doing so much stuff but at one point can finally get something done? Well I do, and it's a good feeling :) The picture is (almost) done. I might define some edges and add some green accents, but I am trying to take my professor's advice and to … Continue reading Finally some more Painting
I said before that my first unicorn helmet was done. Well I got a call from the commisioners and they said that I should try anything I can to make the helmets lighter. I should also add a spiral on the horns of both helmets. So it's back to the workshop. I managed to take … Continue reading Detours
After almost 30 hours of work, one of the unicorns is finished! It features a green-pink color sceme with a thick mane. The Helmet is very sturdy and you can adjust the strap size. Number two is almost done, it just needs it's mane. The hair is drying on a rack right now and will … Continue reading One Unicorn Done!
