Stencil Art: A complex paper cut art
Medium: Fineliner and water colour
Technique: Drawing and paper cut
Samurais have always fascinated me purely visually and for a long time I had a print of a pixelated photo in my template collection. From this I created a black and white version, which I expanded by adding cut-out paper areas.
Drawings with pencil and fineliner
I draw only analog, because I see the process itself as a challenge and time is not an issue for me. It is important to me to create my own versions of an object when I use a sample. I often use large paper formats, because then I can create the shapes with more movement.
The birth of an animal punk band — The Rats of Bonn
Titel: The Rats from Bonn
Medium: Ink and fineliner on paper
Technique: Drawing and digital
I was just sitting in the Schaumburg, the studio community on Hochstadenring in Bonn, handling paints at my table, cursing the temperature in the gloomy hall and a past annoying week when I heard a noise. A rustling and crackling. I spun around and caught movement in a blue rubbish bag a few feet away from me, just inside the hall entrance. The rat was back and within reach in the bag. Out of desperation, it had eaten tea lights together with their aluminium covers and skilfully ignored every rat trap. For months, individual rats had been seen again and again, if there were several. I got up quietly, grabbed a graffiti spray can next to me; a nice bright blue and quietly stalked it. I held the spray can with the cap depressed directly into the bin bag and let the whole gush of paint fly into the bag. Of course the rodent escaped. Stoned by the paint fumes and bloated from eating so many tea lights, he has been wandering around Bonn since we met and meets the scrawny and wiry Pauke, who is everything – except normal. The two abnormal and crazy rats make a joint decision: they want to form a punk band. The Rats of Bonn
Fineliner Illustration of my wife
Medium: Fineliner on paper
Inspired by a photo I took of my wife on a cold windy day at the sea.
Drawing is something personal
For me, drawing is a process by which I capture and develop objects and forms. Of course, I sometimes try to draw something in detail, but I’m more interested in transformation and, therefore, abstraction. This way I modify shapes and create my own version in which the original object is still visible.
Pencil Drawing and Illustration
I consciously capture shadows and outlines with a lot of movement from the wrist in order to create my own new surfaces and consequently my own version of the object. Photos, newspaper cuttings and other stuff provide me with a creative basis for this.
Donald Trump Illustration
Titel: Trump Terror
Medium: Fineliner and watercolour on paper
At some point, the moment came that my aversion against Donald Trump was so strong that I wanted to do something against him. However, I’m not the kind of person who takes action. But my idea was: If I make a drawing of him and have to confront with his face; then I can handle the anger and, furthermore, help to ensure his fall by publishing it. Even if it is only a very small part.
