Yes, it is Photoshop CS5 and I’m drawing on a Cintiq 24hd. I’m glad you like them!
I didn’t feel so good yesterday, so I decided to take the day off from working on my comic and draw something quick for fun.

With love, patience and a little bit of cinnamon!
Finally something I can show from last year! I drew these illustrations for the May/June issue of American Girl.
They were for a story about two girls having a falling out over e-mail while they are both away from home over the summer. One of the girls goes to a leadership camp called “Girls take charge”and the other one goes camping with her family.
There were more illustrations in the story, but I only show the first page (the free space above the characters was for the type) and some of the smaller illustrations here.
It was a very lovely experience working with the guys from American Girl! Many thanks to AD Dan Nordskog!
A little drawing of Mechthild, one of the female side characters of Mawil’s great new comic book “Kinderland”. It’s about a boy, a ping pong contest and the last days of East Germany in 1989.
Sorry for not posting much more these days, still busy working on the comic book…all I have time for are quick studies in the mornings.
Thinking about making this dress…
Featured Artist: Interview with Maike Plenzke
YouTheDesigner has the amazing opportunity to interview freelance illustrator, Maike Plenzke.
Hey guys, here is an interview, if you’re into this kind of stuff.
It might also explain a tiny bit, why there aren’t so many illustrations on this blog lately. (Short answer: no time, no time!)
Happy Valentines Day!
This was a little card for a pig-themed memory-card-game for a friend that I drew last year. He wanted to surprise his girlfriend with the game and I think he also did a very good job with the packaging. You can see the whole game here on Simon’s blog.
I just drew the clothes/sewing pattern by Deer and Doe… right now I work too much so I’m not able to create meaningful illustrations after I’m done for the day. It’s just some mindless drawing for now.
First of all: Happy New Year everybody!
The past year this blog was a bit quiet, as I worked a lot, made some illustrations for exhibitions and started a bigger project. The last one will keep me busy until at least june 2014, but I hope to be able to post some sketches and work from 2013 during the first half of the year to give you something to look at.
The above painting is a portrait commission from june 2013 for a father, who wrote me if I could draw his wife and little girl with their cats.He gave me a lot of freedom to draw what I think (he mentioned that his wife loved gardening) and even more time to do it, so I had a lot of fun and it was a pleasure to work on it.
Thanks again by the way to all the people who started following this blog over time. The number of followers at the side of my dashboard is mindblowing!
