google and wikipedia


click to see larger image
When I do a spontaneous project I mostly consider the internet for reference.
This time I want to paint a piece of furniture in the style of wall pictures as they can be seen in japanese publich bath houses, so called sentō. The mostly depict the Fujisan, the highest japanese mountain.
I once saw a tv documentary about a painter who lived from painting these sentō walls, that's how I knew about it.
So to freshen up my mental image of such a painting, I let google search it for me. With sparse results... (keywords: sento fujisan)
When I typed in 銭湯 富士山 (the same keywords in kanji) I got a more satisfying cluster of results. (I used wikipedia to translate. And used .co.uk just for fun.)

That's what I made out of it until now... the skype-blue proved very resistent to thinning yesterday, so it's a pretty much blocked-in-only color...

To do:
- greying the fujisan
- refining needles and grass
- shading the trunk and branches
- adding more trees on lower edge
- maybe adding some more clouds to break the blueblock-sky?

WHHHOOOOAAAHH!!

The Movie REDLINE by Takeshi Koike just blew away my brain and jumped on top of my Cinematic Experiences of the Year list.

I had the chance to see it on big screen on the Fantasy Filmfest here in Berlin. Whoaaaah!

Inceptionized

I don't find anything to grizzle about that movie. It's just awwwwwwwwwwesome! I never liked DiCaprio as much as in here. And every single one of the supporting actors did a gorgeous job!

So: Watch it!!!

smakelijk





These are the kittens of Anne/Trenchmaker, the red girl Hanni and the grey Tretel. Such cute and tame still playfull cats.

If there will be a time when it is not +30°C/+85°F in Berlin I'm going to take some patience and photograph those two in action.

Also Anne can make very tasty food. If you ever need fresh handmade strawberry sorbet or nice dish of noodles... =D

Conhon



A conhon (con from convention, hon from japanese = book) is a blank book people bring to conventions to let it sign by friends and, originally, by comic book artists.

I made some drawings on the recent anime-manga convention Contaku.

Panik Elektro 7



Panik Elektro is a german comic anthology. Comic book artists draw something to a theme. This time the theme was "webcomics and comic blogs", 30 people are in this volume 7. I'm one of them, YAY!

You should also take a look at the previous volumes, if you like independent b/w comic :)

Here's a little teaser from my contribution.

Love and Theft



Fuck yeah!
