June 2020

Erfurt, Baerbel and a chestnut tree

For the last month I worked only in Thuringia for family reasons. So it is not surprising that several pictures have Thuringia as their theme. The swans in a pond in the Thuringian Forest and two pictures of the state capital Erfurt.

May 2020

Potsdam and calendar

This month, private matters predominated. Therefore I only created one picture, but that was a real chunk, with a new technique, the stipling (you could say dotting). 

Furthermore, my calendars for 2021 are now on sale.

Markets and exhibitions are all cancelled, the next event is probably the Christmas market in Sophienstraße. 


April 2020

Calendar pictures, Spain, Saxony and trips to Brandenburg

The lockdown continued in April as well – albeit with some easing. We made many trips to the Brandenburg area and I found a lot of motives there. My wall calendar was still missing a page and the title, I did that too.

The children’s book got two pages again.

And here are my graphics from April.

March 2020

Berlin big and small and something big is coming back

March was a really strange month. Since the beginning I am almost exclusively at home and in quarantine with my wife. As a result, I was even more productive than usual. 

I start to finish my children’s book “Da kommt was Großes aus dem Meer! (Something big is coming out of the sea!)”. In March the pages 14 to 17.

And also six graphics. Once again Buhnen, since Buhnen III is sold. Also the Gendarmenmarkt had to be drawn again – and was sold within a few hours.

Graphic Days cancellation

Corona

Now it’s hit me too. Last evening, the 15th Graphic Days Berlin was cancelled. Was to be expected – but it’s a pity. And of course it hurts too. If you still want to buy from me, here is my link to the online shop.


February 2020

From subway stations and forests

Here is the yield of February. First one from the Berlin area, near Schönfließ in the north I discovered this creek. Further to a very familiar place, to the high bunker in the Humboldthain in Wedding and finally a colourful picture from the Thuringian Forest.

Licht auf den Straßen – Light on the streets

My new book

At last, my art book “Light on the Streets.” Here is the introductory text:

In “Light on the Streets” you will find 112 pictures created in the last seven years. Since 2013 I have been working on the graphic capture of cityscapes and the charm of this subject has become stronger and stronger for me. The light, which draws patterns on the streets of Berlin and many other places around the world, is the main theme of my work, as it creates its own mixture of familiarity and astonishment. The reflections and shadows give the rooms an idiosyncratic structure and give the hectic big city something almost antiquated, giving the pictures a magic of their own. I invite you to search for this magic on the following pages and wish you as much pleasure with this book as I had when designing my cityscapes.

December 2019

One last time in colourful

The last picture of the year is still an experiment in blue and orange: “Blaue Stunde an der Brücke” is a scratchboard in ampersand, coloured with blue and orange ink.

November 2019

Starlings, Hamburg, a villa and it’s Christmas time.

In November I was busy with the successful show “AlsterArt” in Hamburg and the preparation of the Christmas business. However, I still had time for three pictures and the design of a Christmas card.

AlsterArt 2019

The AlsterArt 2019 is over and I am back in my native Berlin. This was my first art show in another city and a complete success. Many nice new and well-known colleagues, many good conversations and as a bonus some sold pictures and good income. Well organized in the beautiful Poppenbüttel – it was really fun. Gladly again!


October 2019

Happy Hour Kehrwiederspitze

October was a very productive month. Five pictures, two of them especially for AlsterArt in Hamburg. A reminder of the beautiful Berlin summer: “Summer in the Bergmannstraße”, a harbinger of the dark season: “Happy Hour Helmholtzplatz” and a study in water and reflections “Autumn Swamp 2”.

September 2019

From waterfalls to storage cities

In September 2019 I was mainly on holiday in Iceland – therefore there is also a picture of the majestic Dettifoss. And since I am exhibiting and selling at the Alsterart in Hamburg in November, there is also a picture of Hamburg.
