More collaging

Hello, dear readers,

I hope your week started well.

I´ve been working on some collages again, the work in blue tones with the mighty eagle was a present to be used as a cover for a calendar / agenda (which was well received). For this work, I used all kinds of paper with as much structure I could get my hands on, and obviously also some scraps from newspapers / magazines that somehow fittet in the composition I had in mind. For glueing, I used some acrylic binder which gave the overall work a nice rough “DIY” feeling.

The other two are some simple journals I buy & use regularily. I made a habit of putting some colour on those dull covers.

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.

Grimbo. A little dragon.

 

grimbo

I painted/crafted this little dragon some time ago when experimenting with different materials. This varnish shade is called croco crackling, no surprise there ;-). I wanted to have a bit of a 2 D effect so one of his wings sticks out. My inner child had fun with this, and the grownup-me had tremendous fun last week with the 3D mighty-mean-beautiful-crazy-fascinating-scary-overwhelming dragon Smaug.
