social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

SPA - "mermaids"

it all started with not having a good picture of a mermaid... i googled around and came across this site... (go there!!!) *mouth open*... have you ever seen or heard of a mummy of a mermaid?! i bet you haven´t. nor have i. but now i had my idea for the challenge;)
a fisherman´s story...

(the small stamped texts read: "forbidden to explain" - the yellow one; and "there you must look thrice" - the red one)

(click to enlarge)

ich hatte kein bild und keinen stempel einer meerjungfrau. das thema reizte mich aber, also fing ich an, umherzugoogeln... da kam ich auf diese seite (kucken!!!)... *mund offen*... jemals was von einer meerjungfrauen-mumie gehört?! na, ich auch nicht. aber ich hatte jetzt meine idee für die herausforderung;)

ein bisschen anglerlatein...
