summer vacation + sketchbook = fun.

2017_07_RAWScans5is there anything better than having lots of time, a beach, sun & wind & waves… and a sketchbook on the side? we were on vacation at beautiful gargano, italy. here are some beachy impressions:

2017_07_RAWScans23the trabucco right around the corner (here is an explanation of what they are and what they are used for. all i know is that they’re used for fishing and that they look beautiful).

in a bus to munich.

about a month ago i was in munich, travelling there by bus (8 hrs).

P1090611_here’s what i saw on the way to munich: my three lovely colleagues eva, juliane & wiebke around me on the signature blue & green seats.

P1090614_a guy eating his burger right out of the paper and our stop at mcdo (there was no alternative where the bus driver took his break).

P1090624_and on our way back: these guys in front of us (it’s a double decker bus), one is playing some strategic game on his laptop or complaining loudly about his company’s ties to north corea (wonder which company he was talking about?!). the other is talking on his phone or snorring. the window was actually covered in dead flies & bugs.

in munich itself i didn’t really dare to draw that much. i was busy working at a comicfestival. so i only drew these three pictures:

P1090616_(1) a little dog that had appeared in my dream. don’t let it fool you – it looks really cute, but it’s actually a very well-made robot meant to spy on us and collect all our information (that can be used against us). just like a smartphone, but more friendly.

P1090618_(2) this old bus i really liked in a cosy coffee break.

P1090620_(3) this strange building right next to the wiesn.

i like munich a lot. i prefer travelling by train.

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…

P1090115

blackbirds are always worth a second look though. ❤
