Ho ho ho

One of the gifs I made for Fork Unstable Media 's christmas campaign. Their clients could choose from two gif versions and received a real printed flipbook version of the selected gif. That was fun, so thanks for the nice animation job!
My dear friend Daniel made some of the effects animation and helped me out with the second gif. I will show it in another post, I feel that two endlessly looping gifs next to each other are a little bit stressful to watch.

Eines der Gifs, die ich für Fork Unstable Medias Weihnachtsaktion gemacht habe.
Die Kunden konnten zwischen zwei Gifs wählen und bekamen es später als gedrucktes Daumenkino zugeschickt.
Sehr schöne Idee und hat echt Spaß gemacht. Daniel musste mir mit Animation aushelfen, da nur ein paar Tage zur Verfügung standen. Das zweite Gif gibts dann im nächsten Post, irgendwie ist das so direkt nebeneinander zu anstrengend anzusehen.

Kathi's dad, the cyclist

Final version colored
Outlines
First draft
Character sketches
 
I was asked to create an illustration as birthday gift for Kathi's dad, Sigi. I was told the result was so close to reality as if I had been there too. Thank goodness I wasn't. I really enjoy cycling but I am sure I have not trained enough to keep up with those pensioners-biking-ironman-like-distances in no time. I can feel the sweat and pain when I just think about it, because we took the WRONG side of the Elbe cyling path close to Lauenburg this summer.
Ha ha, poor Kathi! Sorry for that, but I am sure you did better than in my illustration. At least your were still smiling on that photo you sent me :D

Ich wurde von meiner Freundin Kathrin beauftragt eine Illustration als Geburtstagsgeschenk für ihren Vater zu machen. "Als wärst du dabei gewesen!" lautete das Feedback, aber glücklicherweise war ich es nicht. Ich bin für solche Rentner-Triathlon-Distanzen nicht angehend trainiert genug und kann den Schmerz und Schweiß fühlen, wenn ich nur daran denke (ich sag nur: falsche Seite des Elberadwegs kurz vor Lauenburg!). Aber ich bin mir sicher, du hast dich viel besser geschlagen als ich es dargestellt habe. Auf dem Foto, das du mir geschickt hast, hast du nämlich noch Lächeln können :D

Bday sketch and illustration work


It's been a while since my last post and Michaels birthday... but nonetheless here's the sketch I made for his birthday.

Finally I am lucky to work again for Kosmos as illustrator. Again some weeks of nice work for next years crafting kits. I made another illustration for a Kosmos set for plant breeding in the meanwhile, but I will keep it hidden until it's available for purchase. I really enjoy working for them as they are highly reliable, pleasant to work with and grateful clients. More of these, please!
