I'm a freelance illustrator and designer based in Hamburg, Germany. I work in the animation, advertising and publishing industries as well as for everyone, who's in need for crisp designs and illustrations. Welcome to my Tumblr-Blog!
  • It’s finally #inktober time again! Thanks to fantastic Mr. @jakeparker for spuring me last year and this year again to take part in this art mission😄👍. I created this little illustration without prep.drawing; it’s a quite quick freestyle drawing. 30 more to come😳😁! #ink #illustration #fashion #characterdesign #characterdevelopment #inktober2014 #no.1 #sketch #sketchbook #fashionillustration #doodle #leoprint #visdev

  • I had the honor to create an illustration for the “2015, Fuck Yeah!” calendar Schlogger initiated. You can preorder the calender with 69 fantastic artists here

    More information about the artists and their websites you can find here.

    My contribution is for week number 4. It’s the time of snowdrops, days become longer again and spring is almost here :P, haha!

  • Doing some final corrections before handing out the book filled with live illustrations to the bridal couple. This is one of my favourite images, which didn’t need any editing. #live #livedrawing #event #wedding #art #illustration #watercolour #watercolor #sketch #sketchbook #lovemyjob #artistsontumblr #drawing

  • One week ago, I was commissioned to illustrate a wedding. I met the funniest priest ever who held the most humorous and best speech I’ve heard so far. #wedding #lovemyjob #livedrawing #live #ink #illustration #inlove #drawing #art #sketch #sketchbook #artistsontumblr

  • I was commissioned to capture a couple’s wedding yesterday. Had lots of fun + it was such a beautiful and warm end-of-summer/early-autumn day. Trees are already changing their dress colours and it was nice to capture this warm atmosphere!

  • chris-sanders-art:

    How many drawings in a storyboarded sequence? Well, here’s one. Sequence, that is. At the end of “Lilo & Stitch,” we were cataloging and packing up our story drawings. We got to talking about how thick the piles were. Eventually someone suggested we take a picture of the drawings for one sequence. We used the floor of a large open meeting room in the Florida studio, and brought in a scissor lift as a platform for the photographer. Then we spread out the drawings. We were all surprised just how large an area they covered. Bela Temesvary shot the picture. Then he suggested I sit in the middle of them for posterity.

    Now, if you’re still reading, bear in mind that this is not just one sequence from the film, but one VERSION of one sequence. Sharp-eyed observers will note that this is the obsolete chase sequence that featured a 747. That version was dropped after September 11. So this entire thing wasn’t used. Nor is this the first version of this sequence — I boarded it at least once before this. So this is probably version 2. I boarded it again from scratch at least one more time after this one was scrapped.

    It’s important when talking about a traditionally animated film to clarify that these are not animation drawings, as some people have mistakenly assumed. I’m not an animator; I work in story. So these drawings were for story pitches and the story reel.

    Most people board on Cintiq now, but I still do it on paper. It’s nice to have original drawings to sit on at the end.

  • "For god’s sake, I fogot the Bunsen burner!!!" (Does you really say Bunsen burner?! Sound like a funny mixture of German-English😄). More quick doodling; this time guys! #character #characterdesign #characterdevelopment #sketch #sketchbook #art #artist #artistworkout #artistontumblr #illustration #design #doodle #visdev
