Okay here is anothe illo for Ten Paces and Draw.
It was actually a fashion swap, but the costume that I got to draw was so unconventional (you will see when you go to the website) that I couldn’t just draw a pretty girl with a lovely dress.
So it became a kind of sea monster who disguises as a coral to catch cute fishes.
It doesn’t fit in the slideshow of the fashion swap though. Sorry! But it was fun again, as always.
Head over to Ten Paces and Draw to see the other participants’ illustrations!

Adrian from the german comic anthology Jazam asked me to draw the coverillustration for them and this is it. The topic of this issue is animals and I couldn't resist drawing a fox and some ravens. The book will be released in May 29th this year.
And as a bonus, this is a little illo for the back of the book:

These Illustrations were part of a job for Women’s Health Germany I did in November 2012. The article (came out now in February) was about how to handle tricky situations, when you have no clue what’s going on or what the other person is talking about. I just got the situations and they wanted me to illustrate it pretty straight forward, not with too much concept behind it.
1.Going to a party, of which you didn’t know that it was a theme party.
2.Meeting a person on a street and which seems to know you, but you don’t know who it is.
3. You didn’t get what your mother was saying because you didn’t really listen to her.
Things like these.
It was a fun job and working for WH was a pleasure!

The “Girls - Fact and Fiction” show opened last friday at Light Grey Art Lab!
I am very honoured to be part in this show (there are so many great artist in it again!!) but it was also very hard to decide for one girl. In the end I went with Ofeliá from Pan’s Labyrinth, which was quite a challenge. When I started sketching I wanted to put so many things from the story in this illustration, but realised the show is about the girl and not so much about the story. So I kept most of the things subtle in the background.
There are also prints of all the pieces from the show available HERE and a Girls book with all the pieces in it: here is a PREVIEW.
