My first book will be released in two weeks! It’s a “Wimmelbuch” (some kind of where’s Waldo book) about the lovely town Leipzig, Germany. Called “Mein Stadt-Wimmelbuch Leipzig”, ISBN: 978-3944445076, published by Willegoos Verlag.

And here’s a little sneak peek with all the layers I painted :)

Whee, I got a new scanner, yaay! So back to the roots, sketching with pencil and coloured pencils. I only got time for that in the evening after digitally working on my new book :)

And some details, sorry for the small size :)

The scenes I painted are scenes from the town where I live (Potsdam, Germany), so the buildings are some kind of realistic …

I was so busy the last month with working on a book like “Where’s Waldo”, 9 illustrations with nearly 70 people on every szene … this was pretty much work but it was also a lot of fun. I love to paint little details on the illustrations. And I’m already working on the next one, so there won’t be many updates the next week (maybe some drawings - I miss to draw traditional - when I got a new scanner, my old one is broken ;( ). So have fun watching the pics.

made a bigger version :)
