… i have stopped writing regular stories on my blog for several reasons. but if you miss my drawings and want to see new material, you can find it here now: klaragrosz.tumblr.com! come on over!
i’m ill this week. nothing too bad, just a cold. it started with my nose running (got though 100 tissues a day) and i was very weary and sleepy… but i’m very glad to be taken care of so perfectly by my favourite person!
i tried keeping up with what’s going on and the new design of my newspaper, but i didn’t get very far. now after a couple of days i’m feeling better, though still with a sore throat and a little slow in my head and easily exhausted. but i’m beginning to wonder…
well… am i?
last week i started showing my summer’s collection of things i saw on holiday (click here), here comes part II.venetian pidgeons.
things to find on and around vaporetti – the public transport system by boat in venice.
ravens seen from the motorway back in germany.
beautiful landscapes of abruzzo on the way from gargano to rome.
to keep track of all those amazing things i see while travelling, i like to focus on certain topics or objects for a page or a spread. here are some of my collections from this summer:
my favourite dogs from the beach & campsite at molinella, gargano. (everybody kept calling pedro, but he simply didn’t care! pedro is the best! <3)the best parasols at the beach.
my favourite pets around our bus… beautiful lizards at the campsite in gargano (the three visiting regularly were “the small one”, “the middle one” and “the yellow one” and then we had one very special visit by “the ancient one”).
my favourite cactei & friends at molinella beach.
is 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:
molinella beach in front of our camping door, with a view of the lighthouse of vieste.
the 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).
molinella beach and the trabucco from afar.
waves & fun!
go on, travel around! don’t forget your sketchbooks!
drawing after photography is so much fun!
after william klein.
after william klein.
after harf zimmermann.
both exhibitions have just ended at c/o berlin. but the next great show is coming soon, i’m looking forward to josef koudelka!
i can’t believe it! i managed to finish my never-ending to-do-list, my bags are almost readily packed and when i wake up tomorrow, i will be going on holiday, yay!
to celebrate travelling, here are some impressions of my neighbourhood close by, my kiez in berlin-wedding.
view of the tv-tower from nordufer.
friedrich-krause-ufer aka. the “nichts”. it’s a non-place. there’s nothing to see on that side of the spree! there are just lots of functional bridges for trains & cars, the ever ongoing construction site for the s-bahn, dirt, noise, everyone here is only passing by, passing & leaving this corner as fast as possible. but there’s something magic about lingering between all those busy bridges and being a quiet observer in the middle of these crossroads that you wouldn’t usually ever take notice of.
