To The Next Step!

I'll drive to Stuttgart in a couple of hours...Since I'm gonna move there
for at least 4-5 months I need to take a lot of things with me.
Still need some time for packing.

I have to abandon my good old Mitsubishi Colt T.T
Live long and don't give up!

...Hay fever is killing me thesedays. Hope it's gonna be better soon...

Allright, I will have some breakfast then I'll finish my luggage and
let's go to Stuttgart!
Over and Out!

some lights...

The weather was perfect in Hamburg yesterday. About 20 degrees and the sun was shining all day long. I met my fiends Jakob, Melanie and Martin in the evening. We had a really nice dinner.
Plz send me the photos Jakob ^^v

After coming home I did some lightpaintings again.
Here are some of those I liked best. (How I do it...)

Pastel Doodles

I bought new pastel paper and did some quick sketches. Pastels are really fun but your hands get dirty ^^


Oh...almost forgot! My counter says over 10000 visitors and more! Thank you so much for your continuous visits! You guys help me to keep my hands busy ^^v I really appreciate it. Thank you! m(_ _)m

WinAmp vs iTunes

Which software do you use to hear your music?
I was always a big fan of WinAmp. But I recently found out that my winamp doesn't support 5.1 speaker systems and even when I use headphones the Soundquality wasn't so good. I thought that my sound file was broken, or I had turned on the WinAmp Equalizer (which I didn't), but when I played the same file with iTunes the sound was perfect. Anyways, I never used iTunes cause I found it uncomfortable and kind of slow... But in the last few days I tried to understand the workflow of iTunes and it's amazing. The Libary system is very cool. I see a lot of advantages of this program. Now I know why many friends of mine are using iTunes.

OK, back to digital...
I did this one for the Daily Sketch Forum at CGTalk. Topic "Lonely..."
The Undo function and the layers are pretty comfortable after traditional pastel ;)


Tried some more pastels...

Cat Bot

Ben Plouffe inspired me to try pastels. And I have to admit I did miss the undo function ^^;
But I had a lot of fun drawing with pastels.
There is also a bit of photoshop involved for the little touch ups.

Little Town

Today I started to paint over an old painting of mine. Sometimes this approach helps me to get new ideas.
Oh, and I'm still in Hamburg...some unexpected things came in my way. I'll probably move to Ludwigsburg at the end of April.

The Next Step

Yesterday was my last day at Spans & Partner. I had a great time working over there. I met a lot of great artists.
Now I'm moving on to the next step. I'm planning to move to the south of Germany (Ludwigsburg) in about a week and I will work together with a good friend I met at work Heiko van der Scherm on a short film project.
One of my best friends Felix will come over as well and I'm really exited about it.
We'll have a great time.

The weather over here in Hamburg is terrible right now....always raining and we even had a tornado this week. Incredible, the tornado was in the south of Hamburg. Thank god I live in the north.

Hope to be able to paint some more in the next couple of days. Stay tuned! ^^v
