a visit to the botanical garden.

my friend wiebke and i spent a sunday at the botanical garden in berlin recently. these are some of the things i saw there:

Gekritzel10finally a plant pretending to be some kind of flower between armies of cactei: strelitzia.

Gekritzel11just as i thought “this plant looks like an elephant’s foot”, i read its name. that’s exactly what it’s called…

Gekritzel14_hurray for quails! ❤ ❤ ❤

Gekritzel12i’m going to move in here. watch plants & quails 24/7. bye.

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):
