THIS COULD BE A CHILDREN'S BOOK #12.

Boys and Girls!

It took a time since my last post but here I am with new drawn stuff. With these seven new pictures I have 16 pictures complete, 6 are still remaining and I hope to get them finished within the next two weeks. I saved up the heavy ones for the end so that I have some more fun when air is going to be thin. The children's party and the city scape were the most tough ones in this session. They took me several hours and over night waiting but in the end I got these things done. So, let's do the rest!

Cheers, Robert

THIS COULD BE A CHILDREN'S BOOK #11.

Dear Dudes & Dudettes!

Here is the second batch of my workout stuff done over the last week. Pretty strange to stay inside when the weather's that good but hey, there's a job to do. Furthermore creating these pictures is huge fun for me. Can't wait to see this finished! But I hope that I can cope with that book because I'm behind my timetable. I'd have to do two more pictures this week to be in time. Bad luck but there are still three weeks to get all that shit finished. Ching ching and see you later!

Cheers, Robert

THIS COULD BE A CHILDREN'S BOOK #10.

Hey People!

Within the last week I started with the workout of the pictures. I had to though there are  four pictures quite uncreated. But my timetable said I had to start with the workout, there's no time to lose. And so I have to make these nonexisting pictures on the fly even that's total shit because this will take much time for the workout of one picture than one with a clear state. C'est la vie or more specifically my own fucking fault!

However, here are the first four pictures in the final state. Made in A3 with pencil. It's exiting to work in a bigger way than only in my sketchbook. On average it took me about 4-5 hours for one picture. I hope to get faster with the following ones, otherwise I have to set the deadline for the finished book in March next year. Later this shit will be scanned and colored digital. But first I'm gonna do the remaining 18 pictures. There are four weeks left for that on my timetable. Go!

Cheers, Robert

THIS COULD BE A CHILDREN'S BOOK #9.

Hey folks,

You may have noticed that I've been off for about three months. The reason's not that I lost my motivation and started a career as bank business management assistant or security officer. The reason is the birth of my daughter in April which let me take a break from my creative job. Now, I'm trying to continue the work on my children's book. My plan is to have a finished product in the end of September so that I can show the thing to publishers at the book fair in Frankfurt in early October. Very ambitious! I did a timetable with the different milestones until the end of September. And what can I say? There's fucking much work to do. And I must do a lot of things: finishing the sketches of the pages, doing all workouts, scanning, coloring, doing the layout, looking for potential publishers, making promo material and shit like that... I'm very curious if I will manage this mountain of work while there is a little life around that's begging for attention. I guess I will handle it somehow.

Here is the actual state of affairs. Some of the pictures are very well developed. The missing ones will be created a bit looser and on the fly so I won't take so much time with the previsualisation. My plan is to finish the sketches within the next week and start in week 30 with the workout cuz this will take much time. Very ambitious. Let's do it!

Cheers, Robert

LEAVE THIS PATH.

Hey!
 

This is what happens when you use to sleep a few hours over weeks. The picture's done over different days with biro in small timeframes between sleeping, sitting my daughter and the day in day out chaos.

Cheers, Robert




YOU SCARE ME.

Hey Folks.

It took some time to post it but here's some new line-art done with a black biro! The rough idea lay around on my desk for some months before I finally decided to realize it in some hours.


Cheers, Robert

POSTER DESIGN THE.SPINES.

Hey!

Hope you're fine! As you might know I'm out of my band THE.SPINES for a few months now. I quit cuz I  wanted to do more drawing stuff. And of course I do. The children's book is growing and I'm stuck with some free illustrations. And now I did the poster for my final show with THE.SPINES. Some faded colors and a dismembered drug girl are going well with my feelings. I'd love to stay in this band but I can't. I have to draw and I hope it's worth the sacrifice! One line from one of our songs goes "...without you motherfuckers I'm an amputee". We will play this song on that show.

Cheers, Robert

SKETCH-O-RAMA #3.

Dear Folks!

I give you another round off my tiny sketchbook. Freestyle-Sketch-Action forever!

COMMISSIONAL WORK.

People!

Hm, I guess, I forgot a thing. Some months ago I made a post where I wrote about a job in my real job. Since some months this "job" is finished and I can finally present you the result. The animation promotes a networking solution for the company I'm in. I simply did the character design while the marketing department did all the rest. Enjoy!

Cheers, Robert
