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!

First Preview | »Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen!«

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.

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!

Kleine Leute in Paris | Souvenirs

I decided to refuse the Hide-and-Seek book about Paris, mainly because (a) big top views of a rather flat place do not work well in my twodimensional “dollhouse” perspectives (if Paris had more hills and stairs, it might actually have worked!), and (b) drawing a whole city which really exists makes me want to illustrate absolutely every detail I discovered there – but unfortunately, this would take several years. Besides, I realised that there are illustrators whose whole style is a much better fit for such a project – and that I don’t have to be able to draw everything.

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! Winnetou” that will be published in celebration of the Peng!-award to Helmut Nickel as father of the Winnetou-comics in June 2011 at Edition 52, will be exhibited at the Münchner Comicfest June 23rd to 26th, 2011, at the Jagd- und Fischereimuseum and later in some other cities as well!

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.

Heute, am 22. Mai, ist Welttag der biologischen Vielfalt, und dieses Jahr sind die Wälder das Schwerpunktthema des UN-Tages. Lily Lux war zur Feier des Tages in ihrem wunderbaren Arboretum, hat ein paar Notizen gemacht und einige großartige Bäume kennengelernt und wiederentdeckt.

Geocaching | Lily Lux’ Treasure Hunt is continued!

Our travelling Notizbuch is on the road again, with its very own Travelbug! Also, our lovingly designed Cache has been found quite a few times lately, so it seems like spring is really there now… We’re very delighted about that, wish great fun to all geocachers for this season and are excited how the journey of our book continues!

Geocaching with Lily Lux | Travelbug and Notizbuch

Thanks to the friendly enquiry from Alberti, we discovered the wonderful online treasure hunt of Geocaching and could infect Lily Lux with enthusiasm. So we didn’t just design a little puzzle, but as well – and we think that’s particularly exciting and wonderful – we sent a Lily Lux Notizbuch as Travelbug out to travel the world.
