Global Talent Search 2014

This year was the first time I took part in Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search (GTS). Though I think my style doesn’t fit perfectly it is a great opportunity to create a wonderful piece and to be part of this huge event! This year there were 999 entries. I must admit I was nervous when

Monday Crab Walk

I had so much fun in creating Smitti and his nautical surroundings that I decided to do another illustration with him. On Mondays you find Smitti at the Red Crab Beach collecting crabs.

One Fine Fisherman

This is my submission for this month’s bootcamp assignment which is about nautical wall art. As I couldn’t manage to upload last month and felt terrible about that I decided to work on and upload my design very early this month. I was very happy I could use my little Smitti for this assignment. I

Smitti was a Pirate

I am developing nautical characters and surroundings for this month’s bootcamp assignment. It’s about wall art so just perfect to add some new items to my Etsy Shop. This is Smitti, an old sailor living on a beautiful island somewhere behind the horizon. His best friends are Milli and Beppo, two seagulls, who constantly wait

A Summer Day at the Creek

Do you remember those days when all you needed was the sun and some water? No no, not those crowded outdoor swimming pools or public lakes but rather those romantic little creeks in between the shadows of the trees.

Finding Lost Treasures

As an Adobe Illustrator Lover it is very interesting to experiment with vector textures. Of course it is much easier to texturize in Photoshop but hey – my little vector images can be imagined on one of these Time Square digital screens that are as high as a house But seriously, I like the challenge

Where the Fairies dance

Where the Fairies dance is another illustration with my little animals. Like all the others from this series it is vector only. After many years of finishing very clean vector illustrations I so enjoy the textures and abstract approach.

Reading in the Woods

If you follow me on Instagram (my favorite social network) you have seen the previous version of this illustration. I have added some flowers and textures and slightly changed the mushrooms.

Riding the Mushroom

Currently I am extremely inspired by Mid Century style. I have always loved it but never really knew how much! I spent hours in my favorite book store in Düsseldorf where they also have antique books. Believe me it’s much cheaper to spend your time in Pinterest or Google

Collect Moments

This is my final piece for week 5 of MATS A. I cannot believe it’s the last week! Week 5 was about gift market and we had to create a design for a zipper pouch with our favorite collection. So amazing what kind of collections my fellow students posted – whereas I thought and thought

Our Love grows endlessly

This is another Children’s illustration with my little mouse. Please have a look at my bootcamp post to see the first illustrations and patterns. After years of concentrating on floral designs I enjoy including these cute characters so much. Next illustration with little birds is also nearly finished. There is a great printer in Duesseldorf

MATS Bootcamp March

Have you ever thought about sketching or illustrating jell-o and gelatin molds? Well, I haven’t and it was quite a big surprise when I read about it in this month’s mini assignment! How on earth do you illustrate jell-o? In my case I did it just the way I usually work: Invest a good amount

Hooray!

It’s a long carnival weekend over here in Germany so I had some time to finish my next Hugo illustration. I call it “Hooray!”. On Monday we’ll get the next mini assignment from Lilla Rogers’ Bootcamp, hopefully before that I will find some time to develop a little friend for Hugo.

Hello World

Since I am taking Lilla Rogers’ Bootcamp I have sketched so many little Hugos that I would like to send him into the world. I call this illustration “Hello World”. Hugo is my little squirrel that gets new clothes with every new sketch. Currently I am working on a hoodie in case he has to
