I write about my thoughts and ideas relevant to illustration, art, design & a little bit of my greatest inspiration — surfing. I also showcase my latest projects here, give you a little insight into my workflow and share the latest free stuff with you.
I am a great fan of Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes. Jim Frommeyer and Teague Chrystie realized this absolutely awesome video of the famous snowmen torment scenes from the comic books as a tribute to Bill and here is how they made it: a very Calvin & Hobbes Christmas.
I like to wish everyone Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! Let there be peace, love & happiness for the mankind – at least once in a moment.
Yeah, now it’s time for some Christmas cookies. Last weekend my girlfriend and I started to bake moustache cookies and some other funny dainties. Just like aliens, pizzas, magic shrooms, a bloody moose and of course a bunch of conventional X-mas cookies. Ho ho ho!
Here’s the recipe for a shortcrust pastry:
500 g (1,1 lbs) flour
125 g (ca. 4,4 oz.) sugar
250 g (ca. ½ lb) butter or margarine
1 (ca. 0,3 oz.) package vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1-2 dashes of salt
Plus a little bit of flour to roll out the pastry,
and sugar, water & citron juice (or any other kind of fruit juice) for the frosting
and a lot of fun, of course.
And that’s all. Simple, but delicious Happy holidays!
Hell yeah, here we go. Stefan from Civil Victim – a hardcore punk rock band from Kreuzlingen, Switzerland – asked me to draw a poster for their rehearsal and gig room – the 9 darter. For sure, here the result:
There should be a bunch of freakin’ out zombies, a camel-headed punk and a nine-dart-finish* on the dart board.
