Just Published | »Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen!«

Umschlagmotiv für Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen! 100 charmante Geschichten rund um die Sprache im Duden Verlag

I’m happy to announce that Rita Mielke’s book »Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen!« (»You have the word, darling!«) with 100 stories around the German language, which I recently illustrated for Duden Verlag, is finally available in bookstores!! Also, my specimens have arrived, and they look – and smell! – absolutely awesome!

Illustration für Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen! 100 charmante Geschichten rund um die Sprache im Duden Verlag von Iris Luckhaus

I am pleased to finally anounce a book I illustrated for Duden Verlag, a publisher which is famous for its dictionary of the German language, the »Duden«, as the predominant resource for German orthography, but also publishes other books with language-related topics. For Rita Mielke’s »Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen!« (»You have the word, darling!«), which tells 100 exciting and often surprising stories around the German language in a smart, warm and humorous way, I worked in a new, bichrome and simplified style, to resemble book illustrations of the Sixties.

Update | Fresh Profile Picture

Profilbild mit Selbstbildnis der Illustratorin Iris Luckhaus bei der Arbeit in ihrem Büro in Wuppertal

After planning on this for months, I finally found time lately to update the main self portrait I’m showing in the profile section of this site (and which once, in an even earlier version, even served as a landing page). My studio actually looks very much like this – and I only depicted birds which frequently visit my winterly tree-buffet!

Preview | Mimi Fiedler’s “Balkantherapie”

Illustration mit Mimi Fiedler und ihrer Mutter Marija in We-Can-Do-It-Pose für den Umschlag des Buchs Die Balkantherapie für Liebe, Leib und Leben von Iris Luckhaus

I just finished numerous illustrations for the book »Balkantherapie« by the charming, smart, incredibly funny and simply great actress, singer, photographer and author Mimi Fiedler, which I’ve enthusiastically been drawing the past couple of weeks, as commissioned by the Münchner Verlagsgesellschaft.

A foldable little house for the Stadtsparkasse

Faltbares Modell eines Hauses aus Pappe mit einer renovierten und einer unrenovierten Hälfte als Erklärhilfe für die Bausparer der Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal von Iris Luckhaus

I just finished illustrating the outside of a collapsible cardboard house (ca. 20 x 20 cm) for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse. This little house will be used to describe renovations and refurbishings of an old house, and why those make sense. It has an old, unrefurbished side and another that is all new and shiny, fully refurbished, and both contain typical details.

Anthology | “The Neighbour” for “Bettgeschichten”

Teil der Zeichnung eines Pinups, das aufreizend am Fenster für den Nachbarn posiert, für die Comic Anthologie Bettgeschichten

I’ve drawn another special page: the “Neighbour” for the erotic anthology “Bettgeschichten – Comics für Erwachsene”! The book will be published by Zwerchfell Verlag, right in time for the Comicsalon Erlangen in June and was edited and supervised by Naomi Fearn and Reinhard Kleist.

Fresh Feature | Lily Lux is visiting Sven Elch

Lily Lux Passbildserie aus dem Fotoautomaten mit Paketen und Päckchen aus der Post für Weihnachten und einer wilden Party von Rehen, Winkekatzen, Nikoläusen, Weihnachtsmännern, Schneemännern und Rotkehlchen mit Weihnachtskugeln, Lametta, Tassen vom Weihnachtsmarkt, Tannengrün, Girlanden, Zimtsternen und Glühwein für Sven Elch und die Firma Santa and Sons im Blog der Illustrie

We felt honoured to be invited to take part in the Illustrie’s advent calendar projekt, and we are very happy about our own star on their “Walk of Art & Fame”!!!

The advent calendar project is all about the awesome Mr. Sven Elch, employee of the “Santa & Sons” company, and his very special adventures in the advent season… the Illustrie made a hilarious advent calendar app for iPhone und iPad from this.

In our contribution, we show what happens when Mr. Elch personally takes care of the blog’s guests… Thank you very much Stew and Timo for a very pleasant game of visual ping pong!

Anthologies | “Hugh! Winnetou” with Lily Lux

Anthologie Hugh! Winnetou für Edition 52 mit Illustration von Lily Lux als Mädchen auf Zimmerreise in den Wilden Westen mit Büchern, Cowboy-, Cowgirl- und Indianerfiguren

May I introduce? The great Wild West anthology “Hugh! Winnetou” that was published in celebration of the Peng!-award to Helmut Nickel as father of the Winnetou comics in June 2011 at Edition 52, with our dear Lily Lux, but as well some other awesome contributions really worth to look at and to read! I really like the diversity of approaches in the book, and how different childhood memories of the same thing (e.g. hero) can be!

Hugh! Winnetou | Exhibition with Lily Lux

Ausschnitt von Illustration von Lily Lux als Mädchen auf Zimmerreise in den Wilden Westen mit Büchern, Cowboy-, Cowgirl- und Indianerfiguren, für Anthologie Hugh! Winnetou für Edition 52

Our special page with Lily Lux – “Lily loves discoveries.” – that we developed and illustrated for the beautiful anthology “Hugh!

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.

Hugh! Winnetou | Characters and Details

Figuren und Details für die Illustration von Lily Lux' Zimmerreise in den Wilden Westen für die Anthologie Hugh! Winnetou mit Cowboy und Cowgirl, Indianer, Squaw und Häuptling, Kaktee, Eisenbahn, Sheriff und Bandit

Here is everything collected you need for a real fun Wild West adventure: the dauntless blood brothers, the sleepy sheriff, the friendly and peaceful settlers, some beautiful native handicrafts, the very serious chief (shown with a totem), lots of exciting books, a malicious bandit, bows and arrows and tomahawks, a herd of wild and brash buffaloes, a little, non-smoky camp fire, a graceful unblinking squaw and a lovely couraged settler girl (riding and shooting like a devil, unfortunately not pictured), the totem (or stake, just like needed), the three smart trappers (wenn ich mich nicht irre, hihihi), the terribly dangerous grizzly, and the cactuses in the ready… and, for sure, a brand spanking new railroad track.
