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.

PAF - sept 30th - oct 2nd

on monday suddenly i heard loud bird alarm at our front door. i wondered what happened and saw that our tomcat had caught a magpie. ugh, that cat can drive me crazy killing birds!! but then i saw the possibilities (i will go straight to hell, i know)... so this actually is not a "raven" claw... i positioned it on a background paper i spray painted recently. layered with two free textures from flickr, ugglove from kim klassen and font is zombified. (find the other PAF contributors here; and the font name should qualify it for the upcoming zombie theme at SPA, too *g*).
edit: i just wanted to comment on the other entries, but at some blogs blogger won´t let me!! arghhh!! i´m getting frustrated with it!
am montag war plötzlich großer vogellärm vor der haustür. ich schau nach und muss sehen, dass unser kater eine elster erlegt hat. ich könnt ihn erwürgen, wenn er vögel fängt!!... aber dann sah ich die gelegenheit (ok, ich werde auf direktem weg in die hölle kommen). statt lange sinnlos mitleid mit dem vogel zu haben, tja nun... das foto zeigt also keine "raben"klaue... fotografiert auf kürzlich gespraytem hintergrund, mit texturen von flickr und kim klassen bearbeitet und dem font zombified beschriftet (deswegen zählt es auch zum kommenden sonntagsthema bei SPA, "zombies" *g*).


  1. Also ehrlich Johanna, ich bin entrüstet tztztztz...
    Nö eigentlich nicht wirklich, denn das Ergebnis ist herrlich. Fantastisch spookisch ;)

    Ich wünsche Dir ein wunderschönes WE.

  2. Very good mixed-media artwork. Mystical!

  3. stunning strong image, good reactin to the situation.

    I've been having problems leaving comments too

  4. Ab in die Hölle mit Dir ;o), aber das Ergebnis lässt sich ganz arg bewundern.
    Aber ich seh das so, Du bist doch auch kein Vegetarier (oder doch?) und Dein Kater lebt seinen natürlichen Trieb aus.

  5. love the fact that you saw an opportunity in it! Our magpies here are the black beaked ones and they are the most annoying magpie by far! The yellow beaked ones are librarians by comparison! I wish I had a cat that would take them on! You're very creative and I like that you were prepared for the scene! Luck favors the prepared!

  6. Oh the lengths an artist will go to, to create!!! You are braver than I am! Love this image and quote together Johanna. Powerful.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely work with Photo Art Friday.

  7. I'm sorry to hear of the Raven's tragic end, but this image is a powerful work of art!

  8. Whatever you have done - not my opion to speak up of that ;) it shows up somehow to be a piece of ART work - Great !!! :)

  9. Meine Güte, Johanna! Du hast Ideen.....aber das Ergebnis ist sagenhaft....etwas grauslig....aber klasse! Hi-hi-hi

    Schönes WE wünsche ich Dir.

  10. What a creative use of that poor demised bird...Never more, never more. - Just the right amount of creepiness here. Thanks for sharing.

  11. That's really cool...I love it, but then I love dark things :D You might as well take advantage of any creativeness that comes your way...even with the lovely gifts your kitty brings you.


  12. Just in time for Halloween! Very creative.

  13. Creepy and perfect!! Cats will be cats but I love what you've done with the kitty's "gift." : )

  14. Hihi... wie cool. Du weißt ja, es werden nur die kranken Vögel weggefangen, die fitten und gesunden drehen der Katze eine lange Nase ;)
    Ich wünsche dir ein schönes und sonniges Wochenende.

  15. So you used the "real" birdie claw??? (I whispered) ;)

    Great look and feel to this piece...I am a big fan of Edgar and Ravens and I like cats too...but oh my on the bird chasing!


  16. Spectacular card, Johanna, very creative!!

  17. Worthy of Damian Hurst! LOL. Great take on the theme too, using the zombified font.

  18. Du machst aber auch vor nichts halt, aber es ist sowas von genial. Ich bin begeistert und wünsche Dir einen schönen Sonntag, liebe Johanna

  19. Fabulous card! I love your quick and creative thinking. The idea of a zombie bird really creeps me out!

  20. Johanna what a awesome postcard it came out gorgeous...great job!!!

    I'm having trouble posting comments on some blogs too...the ones with the little profile box. If your find an answer please let me know.

  21. Meine gesamte Familie hat sich vor dem Computer versammelt, wegen Deines Werkes :))) Das schafft nur Johanna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
