Packaging | Drafts for Spreewälder Lutki-Schmaus

Illustrationen von Lutki und Fährmann für Verpackungen von Bio-Snacks aus Kürbiskernen von Spreenat Naschgarten aus dem Spreewald

In March, I made some drafts for the packagings of Spreewälder Lutki-Schmaus and Spreewälder Fährmanns-Snack, which are being produced by the organic trademark Spreenat (Naschgarten) from local pumpkin seeds, nettle salt (Fährmanns-Snack) and beet sugar (Lutki-Schmaus), and traded locally, with a small booklet about Spreewald.

Character Design | Lutki for Spreewälder Naschgarten

Characterdesign Lutki

Part of the packaging design for Spreewälder Lutki-Schmaus and Fährmanns-Snack, which I drafted for organic trademark Spreenat (Naschgarten) in March, was the character design for Lutki, a friendly (but usually invisible) dwarfish legendary figure from Spreewald. The Lutki-Schmaus is composed of local pumpkin seeds and beet sugar.

I was very happy to see my tree leaf shape poster (available via Posterlounge) once more in the wild, this time on the chic dark walls of charming lifestyle blogger Anjiko, decorated with the first signs of spring!

“Meine beiden kleinen Abenteurer lieben es, die Welt zu entdecken und zu erkunden. Jeden Tag neue Dinge zu erforschen. Deswegen fand ich das Poster Heimische Blattformen so wunderbar passend. Und in der schlichten Bilderleiste wirkt es noch mehr wie eine Lerntafel. Mal sehen, welche Blätter wir bei unserem nächsten Ausflug in die Natur entdecken und anhand des Posters zuordnen können.”

I was very happy to see my tree leaf shape poster (available via Posterlounge) on the nursery walls of lifestyle blogger Wunderhaftig – and I am particularly fond of the framing, which makes it look like a classical graphic training aid. Thank you very much, dear Nathalie, for the link – and to Maria for letting me know about it!

Art Prints | Identification Sheets at Posterlounge

Poster mit Infografiken zur Bestimmung von Vögeln im Fluge, Blattformen und Tierspuren

After being asked for years when my information graphics would be out als posters as well, I reworked the identification sheets for leave shapes, animals tracks and bird silhouettes, added three different fonts (styles: school, retro and script) and uploaded them. Large formatted posters and art prints are available via Posterlounge now (soon also on Amazon and eBay!), and smaller formats and postcards are available via Artflakes as well.

Art Prints | Infographics at Posterlounge

Poster mit Infografiken zu Frisuren, Knoten und Wasserkreislauf

After being asked for years when my information graphics would be out als posters as well (or if they already exist somewhere), I reworked the identification sheets for hairdos, the instructions for knots and the infographics on the hydrological cycle, and finally uploaded them. Large formatted posters and art prints are available via Posterlounge now (soon also on Amazon and eBay!), and smaller formats and postcards are available via Artflakes as well.

Release | Flora in the IO Sedbook

IO-Sedbook mit einer Zeichnung von Flora, Persephone, Proserpina oder Sylvana, Frühlingsgöttin oder Nymphe im Abendkleid mit Blumenkranz, die von Tieren wie Eichhörnchen, Rehen und Singvögeln begleitet durch den Wald im Frühling spaziert

I just happily received my voucher specimens of the brandnew Illustratoren Organisation‘s Sedbook 2015/2016, which features my Flora im Walde as a page spread as well as my Queen of Hearts from the 52 Aces Poker Deck and the curious fairytale girls as vignettes – and the book turned out really beautiful!

Anthology | Spring Goddess Flora for IO Sedbook

Flora, Persephone, Proserpina oder Sylvana, Zeichnung einer Frühlingsgöttin oder Nymphe im Abendkleid mit Blumenkranz, die von Tieren wie Eichhörnchen, Rehen und Singvögeln begleitet durch den Wald im Frühling spaziert, von Iris Luckhaus

In february, I was so happy about the first signs of spring that I started to draw Flora, walking through the forest. Soon, there were animals gathering around her, such as foxes, squirrels, swallows, peacock butterflies, racoon, badger, hedgehog, rabbit, marten, falcon, rookie, dormouses, jaybird, magpie, woodpeckers, titmouses, robins, goldfinches, sparrows, chiffchaff, blackbirds, tree frog, bumble bees and a roe deer!

Art Print | Flora with Spring Anticipation

Flora (Margarita) im Walde

Once again, I am not allowed to show any of my wonderful recent projects (yet!), so here’s some in between personal work; those are inspired by some early bloomers I discovered during the last weeks (marigolds, daisies and roses, which seem to be able to bloom under snow?!) – and full of anticipation for the approaching spring!

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.
