Sketchbook | Les Reines du Jardin du Luxembourg

Skizzen der Skulpturen der französischen Königinnen im Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris

Once again, after many years in between, I took my old sketchbooks with me to the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris (where I started drawing my very first portfolios, in order to apply at several universities), on a wonderfully sunny October afternoon – and it was so great that I’d like to re-establish my old habit of drawing sculptures in gardens!

Queen of Hearts for 52 Aces Reloaded | Making Of

Farbvarianten für die Herzdame Spielkarte für 52 Aces Reloaded von Zeixs

After writing a bit about research and reasons in the post about my Queen of Hearts I made two weeks ago for the 52 Aces Reloaded poker deck by Zeixs, I would now like to show some of my decision boards and part of the evolution of this card.

Hugh! Winnetou | Favourite Sketches with Lily Lux

Skizze von Lily Lux als Indianer-Squaw Nschotschi, die Schwester Winnetous, im Perlenkleid mit einem Grizzly Bär im wilden Westen

I just uploaded some of the sketches I made for Lily Lux’ little discovery journey to the Wild West – I liked this one in particular, but in the end travelling without leaving the room seemed to fit the subject Winnetou e.g. his genesis much better.

Anthology | IO-Sketchbook “Meine Welt”

Handgezeichnetes und handgemaltes Selbstportrait Heimat von Iris Luckhaus bei der Arbeit im Büro in Wuppertal im IO-Skizzenbuch Meine Welt

My first all-handmade original drawing since 2004, for the sketchbook ‘Meine Welt’ (my world) by Illustratoren-Organisation. It was great, great fun and I had a hilarious weekend with the book… even though it was really heartbreaking to say goodbye and send it over to its next stop!

Celebrity Imposters | Vorschau

Character Design with the style, hairdos and makeup of famous women, for the Celebrity Imposters Fragrance Gift Set Packaging by Parfums du Coeur

I just finished a great and very inspiring illustration project I’ve been working on since November – containing girl characters of various ethnicity in different scenes, some glamourous and colourful dress patterns, and many tiny details. The illustrations will be published next fall, and I look forward to that and to show them on my site then as well!
