Discovery | Zeixs Cube “Magazine & Book Design”

Lily Lux mit Regenschirm auf dem Buchrücken von Zeixs Cube Magazine & Book Design

Isn’t his an extraordinary beautiful Cube book? I first thought I was hallucinating when I discovered the mockup cover of the Zeixs Cube “Magazine & Book Design” (Attention, this book isn’t available in stores (yet)!), admittedly at third sight – I am still stunned about this nice surprise of seeing our Lily in such an unexpected place…

Fivehundred posts – and we’re going bilingual!

We almost missed it: I already published 500 posts in this blog (the exact N° 500 was the Queen of Hearts !)! This is going to be celebrated, with our favourite guest Lux (as seen above), a little cake for us you, and a chocolate heart box as a thank you for reading and commenting!

Haphazardly, the big 500 coincides with the new bilinguality (see right above, there’s or new language switch!) of this blog. Most of the 500 posts are hand-translated now, only reviews and language specific things remain in their original language. If you’d really like to read them, you’re welcome to try your luck with automatic translations :)

(Deutsch) Fresh Feature | Lily Lux bei Prinz Murx

“Ein Wimmelbilderbuch für Erwachsene. Lily entlockt dem Alltag glitzernde Augengblicke und gibt sich ohne Einschränkung dem Genuss dieser Momente hin. Das liebevoll gemachte Werk hilft dabei, die charmanten Seiten des Alltag wieder zu entdecken und sich die kindliche Freude zu bewahren. Jede Doppelseite besteht aus einem Statement und dessen Umsetzung in einer beeindruckend kleinteiligen Grafik. Iris Luckhaus’ Stil ist unverwechselbar und irgendwie Retro. Sie hat einen guten Blick fürs Detail – jedes Objekt, jede Position ist ein weiterer Kommentar zum Statement.

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.

It’s a great pleasure for me to introduce you to my Queen of Hearts! I illustrated and designed this card for the amazing “52 Aces Reloaded” poker deck by Zeixs – Books for Designers which will be published later this year. I look very much forward to that! Right now, Zeixs are showing a preview of the cards on Facebook, and it’s exciting to see this fantastic deck grow with different styles.

Celebration | Happy Valentine’s Day!

We just added some fresh postcards to Lily Lux’ electronic greetings today to celebrate Valentine’s day! Next to the seasonal illustrations and delights you may know from our books, we have some animated cards as well and two Valentine specials for lovers and friends and those in need of a hottie! Plus a little snowdrop for early spring. We wish you a heart-warming Valentine’s Day!

“(…) Todays post is all about the truly awesome and fantastical Iris Luckhaus. (…) Iris is a really fabulous illustrator, designer and stylist from Germany. (…) She creates really stunning and incredibly detailed images full of gorgeous colours and bold outlines. Her work is often very girly and fun, with sultry pouting pin-up type girls dressed up with fabulous outfits and accessories! I’m a fan of pretty much everything she does although i think some of my particular favourite designs of hers are from the ‘Lily Lux’ character sets. (…) When she’s not designing fab illustrations or putting together gorgeous outfits, Iris is a big fan of visual storytelling… and storytelling is one thing her drawings definitely do! (…) Each one has it’s own tale to tell and they are often so full of little details that you could sit and look at one for hours and just keep spotting things to add to the story!
