Snaps transformed: some new stuff

Hi all,

I have a holiday ahead of me and am determined to find the time to finish my two handsome faunian fauns. So keep an eye on this space – there will be news from Faunia in a week or so. The last weeks were too tiresome for me to seriously interact with my muse. At least I took some photos on yesterday´s stroll with my beloved four-pawed-buddy Nando, and having my camera with me I also captured some (for me) everyday-views and quickly played around with colours to “jazz them up”. I really intend to take my camera with me more often, because then I take in my environment in a more intense way, especially when I walk around areas I find extremely familiar and normally would not pay attention to details. And – as you might have noticed –  I find animals very inspiring, how they act and how they look, so there will be more of that in my blog´s “photo-corner”. But behold – this will not turn into a sole photo-blog ;-), as there are too many interesting areas in creativity to explore…

What about you, dear readers, what is your personal method of inspiration? How do you get yourself into a creative mood to start with a creative project, and keep up with it until it´s finished? I´d love to hear from you.

New Sketch: Lion (almost) asleep

Hi there,
here´s a new sketch – another photo-copy. He looks quite relaxed…but never trust a lion ;-). Gorgeous hairy fellow. The sketch took me about half an hour.


New Series: Sketches -Doodles-Drawings

Hi all,

for quite some time now I tried to get myself to sketch and doodle and draw more – if possible on a regular (DAILY) basis…BUT… could not find any real inspiration or time or I wasn´t in the right mood…well, you might know what I mean.


Today was the day I started.


Because I was SO very inspired by the Fanstastic Mr. Fox, an absolutely amazing stop animation film that somehow had slipped my attention therefore I hadn´t seen it. But today I did see it and LOVED it so much I just HAD to draw a little fox in the snow.  I copied it from a photo I have from a animal welfare Organisation calendar. It took me less than an hour. That is the timeframe I go for.

And aren´t foxes absolutely BEAUTIFUL animals?


Have you seen Fantastic Mr. Fox? What was your favourite character?

I must say I completely fell in love with Ash – adorable 😉
