Crouching courage

Courage You can do it. Uncurl and step into the sun. Your safe spot is always with you inside. It is brave to step into the light. And it also takes great courage to step into your shadows and feel everything that yearns to be felt. We often suppress feelings momentarily for various reasons and so they linger and lie low, drawing their blankets thight around themselves and curling up until it is time to wake up again.

Measuring life

How do we measure life? Is it in years or moments? In tears or in laughs? Do we count our life in hours of work or certifications gained in hours of loneliness or mornings cuddling in bed? Do we collect it in medals or metal or money or other cryptic currencies? Maybe we measure it in petals plucked in lovers cherished in miles walked in countries visited in hands held in money earned in houses bought and sold in purpose found and lost in human lifes saved in songs sung in pictures painted or simply in blissful moments fully […]

A walk down memory lane

I am working on the website for author and philosopher Stefan Antonik-Seidler and in the course of this I found something of mine by chance. Meaning, I found some editorial illustrations I did ‘back then’ for the little satirical viennese newspaper ‘der bagger’. Unfortunately not long after I joined the team the paper shut down. No, I don’t think I am to blame… I think *hmmmm*. Anyway, jokes aside, here are the links and the more noteworthy illustrations and accompanying articles (actually my illustrations were accompanying the articles, but this page is my stage so… ;) Ausgabe Bagger #20 […]

First Graffiti at TDDT Vienna

On the last weekend of June 2017 the festival ‘Tanz durch den Tag’ (dance through the day) happened in Vienna. I happened to be one of the lucky ones to be part of ionart‘s crew. We were charged (what a hardship… NOT!) to paint murals relating to the festival’s motto ‘Aufwind’ (Upwind). Below you can see the video documenting my first time working with graffitti, recorded and cut by An Sei, a man of many talents. His first graffitti is the eagle on the corner as seen also at the end of the video. The overall idea was to […]

Ausstellung in Wien 27.5.17

Benefizausstellung Drei Künstlerinnen bieten mit unterschiedlichen Stilen Kunst für (fast) jeden Geschmack an. Sie wollen mit dieser Veranstaltung eine Berührungsfläche zwischen Besuchern und Down-­Syndrom anbieten. Der Verein 3×21 fördert und begleitet Kinder mit Trisomie 21.

Urcoolele Illustration

I just finished this digital Illustration for the viennese Ukulele Duo ‘Urcoolele’. They will again perform at the Grazer Ukulele-Festival this year. Instead of a photo of the band they asked me to render them an illustration for the festival brochures and flyers. As you can see I like it colorful and a bit on the comic side ;) Fortunately they also liked it colorful, but just in case I made a grey and gold version as well, and I think it rocks too. Both look very neat. For me Ukulele brings up associations of sun, beach and the sea… […]

Hello Birds!

Hello english speaking friends! I am sorry that I am not translating the whole text from german word by word. So let me just tell you: I am back, with focus and more awesomeness – well, partly joking. But with awesomeness I am referring to my newfound and practices focus on my realistic ballpoint drawings! Never thought that focus is such an amazing thing but hell, yes. For a multi passionate polymath like me (or maybe just me) that’s some discovery! But I am actually enjoying the reduction of noise brought on by this focus situation. In any case, here is an […]

liberating limitations

Why i changed from overindulgence of tools to limiting myself to one simple one. Where is the freedom in that, and what yoga has to do with it. An introduction of sorts. Posting on fb and insta i completely forgot about this most obvious place here to keep you updated *smack* Yeah I know, I can’t believe it either. But in my defense, I think the reason is that I put very high standards on this blog. Reading into social media marketing and blablabla and how blog posts should be at least soandsomanywords long and cover captivating topics and […]
