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 (tuesdays mostly)

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

take a word: blackbird

the upcoming theme for take-a-word is blackbirds... so i made this storyboard with photos of the magpie my cat killed recently. positioned some bodyparts on spray painted backgrouds and arranged the squares digitally.
(the biologist in me knows that magpies belong to the bird-family of corvidae, but the "real" blackbirds are turdidae. but both are in the order of passeriformes... so far about things you did not want to know *g*)
diese bildersammlung habe ich gemacht mit fotos der toten elster (als model auf gesprayten hintergründen), die mein kater letztens gefangen hatte. die kommende woche geht es bei take-a-word zwar um "blackbirds", genaugenommen also amseln... aber das schert ja wohl keinen. nur die biologin in mir muss hier ein bisschen korinthenkacken, denn während amseln zur familie der drosseln gehören, sind elstern rabenvögel - allerdings gehören beide zur ordnung der sperlingsvögel. was ihr noch nie wissen wolltet *g*...

  4. Um dieses tolle Fotoobjekt kann man Dich nur beneiden, und die Bilder sind allesamt wunderschön geworden. Und, ja, mich stört die Blackbird-Verwechslung auch öfter mal ... Germanisten sind eben auch Erbsenzähler ;-)

  15. I'm with you, Johanna, trying to sort out blackbirds, ravens, crows, red-winged blackbirds....they all get lumped together, but they are very different birds. Anyway, your "square" spproach is brilliant, though I'm feeling a bit sorry for the magpie!
