Growing Artist, acrylics and inks

A painting I did for the sake of trying out a new painting surface, canvas board, which worked fairly well; I'm still undecided though if I like texture of that magnitude, as it makes sharp lines hard to achieve. The painting based on a drawing from last year where I already painted this on the cover of a sketchbook. A series of WIPs is available on Patreon:
"Growing Artist" or "Wachsender Künstler", acrylics and inks on canvas board, 30×40cm.

Repurposed playing cards

Is there anything more useless than an incomplete set of playing cards? We have several. When primed with white paint however, they give a decent tiny canvas (I also tried using a cheap gold paint that needed to be appplied VERY generously to be opaque); the drawings are done in ink pens, pencil, gold pen, and acrylic paint. They are also nice to colour with printer inks that make wonderfully surprising patterns

"Das Schwarze Auge" Art Dump - Nostria

The once-great city Nostria, capital of the kingdom of the same name, and its backstreet that only give the faint impression of former glory. For a regional expansion of the Dark Eye.
Die einst große Stadt Nostria, Hauptstadt des gleichnamigen Königreichs, und seine Gassen, die heute nur einen schwachen Abglanz der früheren Glorie. Für einen Regionalband für das Schwarze Auge.

LANified Calgary Expo badges

These are two of the badge designs I did for the LANified group for their appearance at this year's Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. The backside were used for all badges, and here's also the staff badges (here with BloodyIron's handle). Furthermore, there were designs for the single tournaments; the expo had a Tron theme this year which we fully embraced.

Prints on

The largest print I had brought to NordCon was A3. People actually asked for bigger, which was great, and my clients' wishes are my command. Large-scale prints are now available at my shop, while I build my webshop into my site I can't promise an opening date just yet, but in the meantime let me know if there's anything you want me to add. Right now, the plan is to offer prints of various sizes, at the very least: postcards (because I love them) and wall posters (because they're cool). Signed prints will also be available. The webshop will be the premier place to sell originals - if you'd like to own an original you've seen, maybe on deviantArt or at a convention, let me know via email at, which is also where you can direct any other inquiries and suggestions about prints and originals.

Drucke auf

Die größten Drucke die ich zum NordCon mitgebracht hatte waren A3. Ich wurde nach größeren Drucken gefragt, was toll war, und weil der Wunsch meiner Kunden mein Befehl ist, gibt es jetzt großformatige Drucke in meinem Shop auf, , während ich einen Webshop in meine Webseite integriere. Ich kann noch kein Eröffnungsdatum versprechen, aber bis es soweit ist, lasst mich unbedingt wissen wenn es etwas gibt das Ihr Euch wünscht. Es wird auf jeden Fall Postkarten geben (weil ich die liebe) und Poster (weil sie cool sind), und signierte Drucke. Der Webshop wird der erste Ort sein, an dem Originale zu haben sein werden - wenn Ihr Euch jetzt schon für ein Werk interessiert, das Ihr vielleicht auf deviantArt oder auf einer Veranstaltung gesehen habt, schreibt mir gern unter , was auch die Adresse ist wenn Ihr Wünsche, Fragen oder Anmerkungen zu Drucken und Originalen habt.

Tara, a guinea pig's portrait

While I had spent all my time drawing for clients at HeinzCoin in March, at NordCon last weekend I barely sat down. But what I did manage is this portrait of the guinea pig Tara. It was done from a reference photo her owner had brought, because Tara couldn't make it to the con herself.
