My first Silkscreen Prints!

Yeah, between a German homework and German test, I have found the time to do a very good Silkscreen printing workshop. I am very glad I found the Garage_Pankow, an organization that works in Berlin to create cultural artist projects for young people. And not only for super young people.

Here are a couple of photos of the first T-shirts and bag printed on my own, with my own designs...I think they aren't bad at all ;o)

I am now looking forward to the next course in December, that will focus on screen printing with multiple colors!!! Yeppie! In the meantime I hope you will like this post :D

Greeting card for a former friend

This project is actually from last year but only now I managed to write a post about it.
A friend of our "old boxes" group celebrated his birthday: me and my boyfriend bought him a bottle of wine and a book, a classic. could I pack them attractively and avoid cheesy birthday greetings? Here is how I did it! (Please click on the photos to see them larger)

I packed the presents with normal paper...

Then I drew small scenes with caricatures of all us "Old Boxes": the theme was "outside sports"

And finally I glued all together, so to create a small, bucolic pop -up scene with the Spree-book and a mountain -bottle:

Tja! I think it is a very nice idea,
I congratulate myself! :-P Only, it is a pity that the friend whose received it later turned his back to us. Na ja, things that happen...But my greeting card is still nice, isn't it? ;o)

Illustrator is a friend!

Last summer I studied a bit the graphic program "Illustrator": at the beginning I found a bit "dry" and too technical. "Why do they call it Illustrator at all?! A real illustrator won't find it very creative or easy to use!" I thought.
Well, I was wrong: after a workshop with a local Berliner artist, Beatritzte, I discovered the creative possibilities of this program and now I really like it!

Here are a few drawings I made with this graphic program (please click on the pictures to see them bigger). I hope you will like them, they are just the beginning: I am very curious to discover what else I can do with this graphic program.
By the way, at the moment I am really into drawing animals! :o)
