drawn on my moleskine with a staedtler pigment line at travemunde (lubeck-germany) on the Baltic sea then watercolored at home in hamburg. Fishermen’s boat just get in with the catch of the day. I bought two very fresh plaices.
latest updates: hamburg
tried out the new pencil, drank wine, talked with a friend and a zip later the world turned to its opposite. just if someone pressed “command i”.
the old houses in the city centre of hamburg are still occupied by a group of brave artists. after 5 or more years of rotting and declining now life came back in these walls. but there is still the owner who wants to break all buildings down to build offices made of glass and steel. good bye culture!
one of a dozen occupied old houses in the city centre of hamburg. having a big party with art and music everywhere 200 artists try to reclaim these buildings for culture and living. (it’s planned to break them down to build boring office buildings.)
café ionia, 36°C in the sun, attack of incredible dumbwasp: while drawing this i had to rescue her three times from drowning in my softdrink!
café panter, hamburg, germany. there is a system administrator sitting at my table, trying to find an open wlan net. he talks about his philosophy (politics and social architecture) of his new home country. i only understand half of what he’s saying, but the sun is shining …
vis a vis café ionia
the only place left is in the blazing sun, wasps in my drink and no one calling …
fineliner and watercolor
i sat at the habour, drawing a nice hamburg-skyline and suddenly the “AIDA” came and crossed my display window … what cheek!
third or fourth sketch to find the right part of the hamburg skyline to produce it as a magnetic wall … not quite perfect yet.
bbq in the suburbs … nice garden with a nice little rotting gardenhouse.
maybe the colors are a little too cool this time …
