favourite person on tv: bob mortimer.

bobmortimer_portraet

just so you know, i love bob mortimer.

his stories on “would i lie to you” are the best things that happened to tv. ever.

(on the show “would i lie to you” there are two teams telling each other outrageous stories. the other team has to guess whether each story is true or a lie.)

there’s a new video with all of the “mortimerian tales”:

my favourites are these:
00:07 – I once set fire to my house with a box of fireworks.
06:50 – The police once ordered me to leave town because I was frightening the locals.
26:27 – As a teenager, I used to terrorise my neighbourhood with a game I invented called “Theft and Shrubbery”.
45:35 – I can break an apple in half with my bare hands.

non-places (and – oh – a bird!)

non-places… places that exist, but you never really look at them.

there are quite a lot of them everywhere (maybe especially in darmstadt). like the bridge at the ostbahnhof…

P1090074

… or the forever (-ever-ever-ever) ongoing construction sight at the hospital…

P1090113

… or the crooked house that is (not so much) hidden at rosenhöhe…

blackbirds are always worth a second look though. ❤

rule for the drawings: don’t stop the film. just try to observe as much and as fast as possible.

P1090101

this one doesn’t really exist…

… but the swimming and diving polar bear was very impressive…

and here? just some pengiuns, birds in flight, diving ducks and a very fluffy duckling in the  bottom left corner…

drawing in the dark.

sometimes i try drawing in the dark. for example in theatre plays. if you’ve seen my blog entry from a couple of weeks ago these two drawings might look familiar (from a stanislaw lem-reading at staatstheater darmstadt):

most of the time drawings in a theatre look horrible, because it simply is too dark and you don’t see any lines. but it’s fun. plus these costumes were too good not to try (worn by the choir in “marat/sade” by peter weiß at deutsches theater berlin, directed by stefan pucher):p1080965

the same goes for these two styles from august strindberg’s “totentanz” (directed by daniel foerster, schauspiel frankfurt):

i also draw imprecisely at concerts sometimes. i didn’t see any lines while drawing the band friends of gas, the coloring was done later. friends of gas were the opening act for the robocop kraus at festsaal kreuzberg (i didn’t draw robocop though, too busy dancing):
