I know, it has been again a long time, longer than any time before, that I had a chance to update this blog. The good news is, I have been busy. Busy with many books and other projects. One of them being my own illustration agency, which I founded in early 2014. The agency is called Wundergarden, and to me it is truly a garden of wonderful art!
Taking the step to form an agency and support artists with that very step, has been very exciting. I traveled to New York to exhibit at SURTEX and also of course attended Bologna and will be at Frankfurt Book Fair again in a few weeks, also showing the beautiful Wundergarden portfolio to publishers. All the while I have also been illustrating my own projects, so yes, you get the picture, it has been a very busy but amazing time. And time flew by.
But this blog shall remain about my own artwork and my own projects. If you want to have a look at the magical artwork of Wundergarden's artists, you are cordially invited to step inside our illustrated garden and enjoy the wonderful world each artist creates in their unique voice.
Speaking of voice or maybe let's call it style, as this appeals nicer to the illustration business, brings me to a topic I wanted to write about for a long time. I had the pleasure of working on some really lovely projects over the course of the last year in quite a variety of styles. So this big topic I would love to dig into in my next blog post, and add my two cents to the never ending question about style :-), has been on my mind frequently. I also see it pop up in forums again and again. It is a topic that never seems to seize interest and troubles many of us artists over the course of our creative busniess. So stay tuned. I am writing the blog post as you read. Promised. Just a couple of days to go. Oh, and if you have any questions regarding this topic, please do prompt them here in the comments section. I'll do my best to answer them in the upcoming post!
