I do pencil drawings and (a recently acquired hobby) hand-paint on clothes.
Comment or note me if you have a question or just feel like having some meaningful conversation.
Feel free to recommend me literature or music.

Activity


tearing off layers of reality
Alternative title: The Rainbow Man

(Tiny amounts of) Graphite pencil, (lots of) colored pencils, Derwent colorless blender, India ink and hours upon hours upon hours of work.

I was in no way sure I could pull this off, but I gave it my all and am very satisfied with the result.

As always, I'd be delighted to hear your thoughts and interpretations. I may take a while to respond to comments, because I am about to disappear off the internet for several days (about to take my final exams!), but I'll get around to replying to everyone eventually. :)

Serpentine Radiance
Graphite pencil (HB), colored pencils, Derwent colorless blender (a new acquisition, don't know what I've been doing without it :D ), India ink.

I'm quite fond of how this turned out. Have been working on it on and off for weeks.
As always, I am curious about your thoughts and interpretations. :)

Self-Reflection
Graphite pencil (2B, 8B).
I've been wanting to draw a candle person like this for a while, but the rest of the concept just appeared as I was drawing it.
As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts/interpretations. :)

I finally got a printing screen! :D Just a borrowed one for now, but I am really excited to try it. This might be opening a whole new bunch of possibilities.
Will try it on the weekend with a test motif to see how it works out.

If anyone is interested in a commission, send me a note. :)

Guten tag :D ! I'm here thanks to :iconjoerb: , and I really like some of your surreal works :) ! Personnally I'm more into the figurative representations of mythologic figures from all around the world :)

Bon jour to you as well! :) You have some really nice work in your gallery.
I do consider myself a mostly figurative artist, even though I incorporate some more abstract elements and generally work in a surreal/symbolic style. My inspiration is more from my own subconscious contents than from actual mythological traditions, as this approach allows me more "artistic freedom", but I also subscribe to the Jungian notion of these two basically coming from the same source.

Thank you for the watch by the way :D ! Some mythological figures don't have any canon representation, so I sometimes have to mostly rely on imagination as well, like for Mot, the semitic god of death and drought :)

Vielen Dank fürs "watchen" auch wenn das auf Deutsch immer sehr seltsam klingt^^
Sehr schöne Werke die du da hast :)
