A short blog post about what’s going on …
Starting of with my new “main” art shop. If you follow me on instagram or if you’ve been on my website you may have stumbled upon my artworks, which you possibly even liked. If you did then you’re probably interested in checking out my new art shop on spreadshirt. Link to the art shop
It would mean a lot to me knowing that my art actually speaks people so if you feel like supporting me then you’re welcome to follow me on social media or check out my website.
What’s up next? It’s also about art and an upcoming comic.
I’m not telling much, but it’s going to be a series of short one-page comics about life. (slice of life) I don’t know yet when I’ll start with the uploads but I’ll keep you updated.
Anyway for those who like cute and relatable things, this might be interesting.
I now take Tattoo Design Commission (only the Design not the final Tattoo), price range is between 40 and 120 euro depending on the complexity of the motive.
Here’s an example of a design that I’ve done already: Please do not reuse the design, as it is customized for the person who’ll wear it and therefore personal.
If you’re interested in commissioning me you may contact me here or on social media.
A lot is going on right now and even though sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, I’m still moving forward. Whatever your dreams are NEVER give up.
I know sometimes we’d love to simply let it be, because sometimes it sounds easier, but it doesn’t have to be. Whatever the path you chose looks like, you’ll always come across hurdles. Even if your dreams feels out of reach and far away you’re getting closer step by step. Someone else might be there sooner, but remember this is not a competition, it’s you who want to reach your dreams and you do it your way. If you’re slower than someone else than don’t let this disturb you, because everyone has their own pace of doing things.
When I was studying (Illustration and Graphic Design) there was this semester where we had a class called “Motion Graphics”. The first exercise our teacher gave us was to choose a song that we relate to a lot and create an animatic for it.
For those of you who don’t know what it is. An animatic basically is a video that contains a series of drawings with audio in it. It’s not automatically animation or stop motion.
What I did was an animatic about an original character of mine that is based on the universe of “Durarara!”. Since the musician I would have loved to use a song for back then hadn’t replied, some years later I decided to resurrect the whole project and make something completely different out of it WITH royalty free music, because that’s what you gotta do when you don’t get the rights to it, don’t you?
The result is to be seen in the video above and with that a new concept for a series of videos awoke — How does it sound “awoke”? As if the video series had some sort of spiritual awakening. Haha. —
Anyways, this series will be called “OC Aesthetics” (OC = Original Character).
The main focus will be on giving you a feeling of my OCs personality. It will be more about emotions than about storytelling.
But honestly I don’t want to tell anyone what they have to interpret in these videos, because that’s what’s so beautiful about making art. Two people can look at the same artwork, interpret different background stories in it and feel something completely different.
If you’re interested in the topic of original characters though and how they have an impact on life, I’d be really happy to write a blog post about it. Same as I’d be to tell something about my original characters so don’t hesitate to ask.
I hope you enjoyed the video and if you want to see more of them then follow me on youtube, be patient and stay updated.
I finally started practicing animation and guess what – it’s funny.
Before I’ve only made a few experiments (e.g. my youtube end screens or little birthday stop motion animations) and it never really was something big. I just did it. But now I decided that I wanted to dig deeper into it, because I really want to animate more which I can’t if I lack the skills, right? So for anyone who’s interested in following me on my animation journeys, here you can. I will keep you updated and who know’s maybe one day you’ll see a whole movie. lol. xD (p.s. I’m actually about to work on a motion graphics project so stay focused)
Besides my mom and I watched the movie “Song of the Sea” by Tomm Moore a few days ago which really motivated me to learn how to animate. Not only did I love the artworks but also the whole story was really heart melting. I really enjoy deep stories like this one. Have you watched this movie, too? I really recommend this one. Is there an animated movie you can recommend me?
