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 (tuesdays mostly)

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

SPA: pierrot

mein beitrag für SPA basiert auf einem bild eines unbekannten künstlers anfang des 20. jahrhunderts. diese vexierbilder mit schädeln waren damals als vanitasmotive sehr verbreitet. ich habe das bild mit verschiedenen texturen von kim klassen gelayert und die schädelherzen-brushleiste oben angefügt. benutzter font ist you all everybody.

the base for my contribution is an old picture of an unknown artist, dated about the beginning of the 20th century. this kind of vanitas pictures symbolized the vanity of worldly things and the brevity of life. i layered the picture with various textures from kim klassen, added the skull-heart brushes on the top and used the font you all everybody for the text.
