DIY Instructions | Hybrid Mask Frame for Sewing or Stapling

Hybrid cloth frame, brace or fitter for respirators such as FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, medical, surgical or procedure masks, with reverse nose pleat for glasses wearers, channels with ear loops and head ties for a a gapless, fogfree and slipfree fit by Iris Luckhaus, to no-sew make or staple yourself with instructions, pattern and template

After the Hybrid Pleated Mask, Hybrid Custom Masks and the Hybrid Boxy Mask, I created a Hybrid Mask Frame – as an alternative for all those who cannot breathe well with Double Masks, yet don’t find a gaplessly fitting, slip-free respirator or surgical mask. Due to a reverse pleat, this Mask Frame fits perfectly – even without nose wire!

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Boxy Mask Pictorial

Optimized, best, gapless, fog free and stay in place Luckhaus Hybrid Boxy Space Mask like 3D, Origami, Japanese or Octagon, cloth mask, face mask or face covering to sew or make with instructions, cutting pattern and templates, gapless and no fog for glasses wearers, non-slip and breathable thanks to a reverse fold or nose pleat, with nose piece or nose wire, pleats, filter opening and side channels or casings for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

In addition to the illustrated instructions for sewing my brand new, not only gaplessly and slip-free fitting, but also very spacious Hybrid Boxy Mask, I have now created a highly detailed step-by-step picture tutorial for beginners!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Boxy Mask

Optimized, best, gapless, fog free and stay in place Luckhaus Hybrid Boxy Space Mask like 3D, Origami, Japanese or Octagon, cloth mask, face mask or face covering to sew or make with instructions, cutting pattern and templates, gapless and no fog for glasses wearers, non-slip and breathable thanks to a reverse fold or nose pleat, with nose piece or nose wire, pleats, filter opening and side channels or casings for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Now that I’ve gone through all the possibilities to customize my original Hybrid Mask for a wide range of face shapes, needs and preferences, I finally created a new cloth mask pattern with an open chin dart (or twisted pleat). Similar to 3D, Boxy, Origami, Japanese or Octagon shapes, which form a square box, the Hybrid Boxy Mask forms a triangular box which does not touch the mouth or nosetip and offers plenty of space for breathing, speaking or singing.

DIY Tutorial | Filter Frames for Cloth Masks

Tutorial for the Luckhaus Hybrid Pleated Mask with Filter Frames

Some maskers insert disposable filter materials (e.g. Filti) between the inner and outer layers of reusable cloth masks. For this reason, my Hybrid Mask has a filter opening! This offers the advantage of combining decent fit (through mask pattern) and filter efficiency (through disposable filters), but the disadvantage that filters are often complicated to insert, rarely cover the whole surface and easily slip. For me and my family, double masking, i.e. wearing FFP2 / KN95, surgical or self-stapled, same-pattern filter masks underneath, seems like a better option. Lately though, a lovely mask maker mentioned how complicated double masking is for kids, and I finally had an idea: Filter frames!

DIY Instructions | Customized Hybrid Face Masks

ptimierte Hybrid-Maske, Behelfsmaske, Alltagsmaske, Stoffmaske, Mund-Nase-Maske oder Mund-Nase-Bedeckung zum selber Nähen nach Anleitung, Schnittmuster und Schablone, passt lückenlos und rutscht nicht dank Rückwärtsfalte für Brillenträger, Nasenbügel, Filteröffnung und Tunnelzug für Ohrgummis oder Kopfbändel von Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published my pattern for sewing the Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless (even without nosepiece!) and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about adjustments for special shapes and needs. In this post, I introduce a selection of these customized Hybrid patterns, and every now and then (last March 8th, 2021), I add new ones!

Tips & Tricks | Mask Tying Techniques Infographic

Infographics about mask tying techniques, showing by the example of the hybrid cloth or fabric mask or face covering pattern several ways to fasten a community mask, cloth mask or fabric face mask with ear straps, elastics or head ties and knots, pony beards or cord stoppers and bun or ponytail, by Iris Luckhaus

If you take a closer look, there are so many ways to attach a face mask to your ears or head! After looking into masks in great detail over the past couple of weeks and having all these little sketches for mask tying techniques on my desk, I finally drew an infographic that shows all the different ways to tie a cloth mask with ear bands or head ties.

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Cloth Mask Pictorial

Optimized, gapless, fog free and stay in place hybrid mask, makeshift mask, cloth mask, face mask or face covering for glasses, DIY self-sewing with instructions, pattern and template on fabric with nose wire or nose piece, filter opening and drawstring channel for ears loops and head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published pattern and instructions for my Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless yet roomy and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about making a detail tutorial for beginners and visual learners, but as a video needs at least 2-3 quiet days and a picture tutorial was possible to just make inbetween, I decided to go with that for now!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Cloth Mask

Optimized hybrid cloth mask, fabric mask, mouth-nose mask, face mask or face covering, gapless and fog-free for glasses, to sew DIY with instructions, pattern and template with nose piece or nose wire, filter opening and drawstring channel for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

For my own production, I optimized the pattern and manufacture of the cloth mask, to make it fit gapless and fog-free around nose, cheeks and chin and reliably stay in place, so it doesn’t slide up the eyes or down the nose. Individual parts such as wire, filter and ties are very easy to replace, plus the mask is quick and simple to sew, wash and iron.

Art Print | Fairytales of Flying Carpets

Illustration eines Mädchens auf einem fliegenden Teppich mit Simsalabim, Abrakadabra, Hokuspokus und Jicker für Märchen

A couple of months ago, I scanned some of my inbetween sketches, in order to try out some new styles and colour schemes, and to make some fresh illustrations for art prints and products – so, here’s a little preview!

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

Umschlagmotiv für Du hast das Wort, Schätzchen! 100 charmante Geschichten rund um die Sprache im Duden Verlag von Rita Mielke mit Illustrationen im Sixties-Stil von Iris Luckhaus

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!

Art Prints | Seascape IV (Jackknife)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem Mädchen im Bikini beim Schwimmen und Tauchen im Meer als Seestück

Inbetween, and with quite some longing for summer warmth and vacations, I complemented my monochromous “Seascape” series with a jackknife into the ocean, and soon this will be availbale as an artprint!

Art Prints | Seascape I (Seaview) Edit

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem koketten Mädchen im Sturm an der Relings an Bord eines Ozeandampfers oder Schiffs auf See mit hohen Wellen als Seestück von Iris Luckhaus

Inbetween, I carefully reworked the very first, stormy scene from my “Seascape” series – and soon, the fashionista on an ocean liner will be available as an artprint, next to the other parts of that series!

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.

Art Print | Amy and May in Retro-Paris

Retroparis Illustration eines Mädchens beim Spaziergang mit ihrem kleinen Hund durch Paris

I really like those bichrome book illustrations from the Sixties, and for a long time, I wanted to try out how that style might work with my girls. Today, as the weather is nice, I long for Paris, and I’m waiting for some client feedback, I’ve drawn Amy (who likes to call herself “Aimée” in Paris), all dressed up for a walking her little dog, May, in the city.

Art Print in Screen Print Styles | Swimming Pool

Sommerliche Illustration eines Mädchens im Bikini auf einer Luftmatratze im Pool

While I’m working on confidential projects which I can’t share here, I’d like to show some in-between personal work. Here are further tests with bichrome vacation motives, which I’d really like to print myself someday.

Art Prints | Infographics at Posterlounge

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. Art prints are now available via Posterlounge (also via eBay!), while Søciety6 [US] und Redbubble [EU/US] also offer cards, mugs, bags and plenty of other printed products!

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!

Mimi Fiedler | Balkantherapie | Sports with Guy

Zeichnung der Sportübung Kniebeuge vom männlichen Pinup, Sportlehrer und Matrosen Guy für Die Balkantherapie für Liebe, Leib und Leben von Mimi Fiedler

May I introduce you to Monsieur Guy le Sailör? I developped and illustrated the guy for the Mimi Fiedler’s awesome »Balkantherapie«, and in the books he presents some physical exercises (and a little more)!

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!

Art Print | Portrait of a Rose

Rosenrot Agape Mädchenportrait

A quite old portrait that catched my attention when I was sorting out work for my new portfolio, and I couldn’t resist renovating it. The new version may become an art print soon?

Art Print in Screen Print Style | Panorama

Siebdruck in rot-türkis von einer Zeichnung eines Pinup Mädchens im gepunkteten Höschen am Fenster zur Stadt Paris im Sommer, von Iris Luckhaus

I had a little time in between and tried some new styles with old poses. It’s so much fun to work a little rougher and with only two colours! And to think about making my own screen prints.

Art Print | Fashion Drawing | Little Dresses

Retro-Modezeichnungen von Iris Luckhaus im Stil der Sixties mit Beehive, kleinen Kleidchen und großen Sonnenbrillen

Little series of little dresses, inspired by a pile of old fashion magazines.

Series of Portraits | Heroines I

Comic Popart Retro Tusche Zeichnung mit Portraits von Brigitte Bardot und Audrey Hepburn als Heldinnen der Sixties

Small series of heroines, strangers and faces I just find beautiful for some reason – inspired by vintage fashion magazines and one of my albums on Pinterest.

Kunstdruck | Seascape III (Diving in)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem Mädchen im Bikini beim Schwimmen und Tauchen im Meer als Seestück

Those girls are a lot of fun to draw right now (especially as the hair is completely black and I don’t have to draw the usual strands which look pretty but are a terrible lot of work) – slowly this is becoming a series, and maybe prints at some point?

Art Print | Seascape II (Coquetry)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem koketten Mädchen im Sturm an der Relings an Bord eines Ozeandampfers oder Schiffs auf See mit hohen Wellen als Seestück von Iris Luckhaus

I just started to scan some of my small, simple in between sketches and to try out some new styles… which is great, great fun. And it looks like the greyish seascapes are slowly becoming a series, following the first try last year (image below).

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Ausschnitt aus der Illustration von drei Freundinnen im Café, die Cupcakes essen, Kaffee trinken und fröhlich Gossip verbreiten, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Illustrations for a material brochure by Schock, a producer of granite sinks. My briefing was to contrast two different material lines by using the idea and mood behind them. So, this is my design for the younger, more trendy and astonishingly colourful Cristalite series: Three friends take a break from shopping, chat, drink coffee and eat pastel coloured cupackes in a street café.

Release | “52 Aces Reloaded” by Zeixs

The last time I checked, there were only 92 pieces of the beautiful limited edition left, so better hurry up if you’d like to play with these cards (or hang them on your wall)!

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Illustration einer schönen Frau im roten Abendkleid, die bei Sonnenaufgang Champagner auf einer Brücke in Paris trinkt, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Designs for an (unpublished) brochure by Schock granite sinks. The idea was to contrast two very different materials, their image rather than the actual product. This is my illustration for the classic and classy series Cristadur.

Anthology | Queen of Hearts for 52 Aces Reloaded

Zeichnung der Herzdame (Queen of Hearts) Spielkarte für das 52 Aces Reloaded Pokerdeck für Zeixs von Iris Luckhaus

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.

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!

Art Prints | Seascape IV (Jackknife)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem Mädchen im Bikini beim Schwimmen und Tauchen im Meer als Seestück

Inbetween, and with quite some longing for summer warmth and vacations, I complemented my monochromous “Seascape” series with a jackknife into the ocean, and soon this will be availbale as an artprint!

Art Prints | Seascape I (Seaview) Edit

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem koketten Mädchen im Sturm an der Relings an Bord eines Ozeandampfers oder Schiffs auf See mit hohen Wellen als Seestück von Iris Luckhaus

Inbetween, I carefully reworked the very first, stormy scene from my “Seascape” series – and soon, the fashionista on an ocean liner will be available as an artprint, next to the other parts of that series!

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.

Art Print | Amy and May in Retro-Paris

Retroparis Illustration eines Mädchens beim Spaziergang mit ihrem kleinen Hund durch Paris

I really like those bichrome book illustrations from the Sixties, and for a long time, I wanted to try out how that style might work with my girls. Today, as the weather is nice, I long for Paris, and I’m waiting for some client feedback, I’ve drawn Amy (who likes to call herself “Aimée” in Paris), all dressed up for a walking her little dog, May, in the city.

Art Print in Screen Print Styles | Swimming Pool

Sommerliche Illustration eines Mädchens im Bikini auf einer Luftmatratze im Pool

While I’m working on confidential projects which I can’t share here, I’d like to show some in-between personal work. Here are further tests with bichrome vacation motives, which I’d really like to print myself someday.

Art Prints | Infographics at Posterlounge

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. Art prints are now available via Posterlounge (also via eBay!), while Søciety6 [US] und Redbubble [EU/US] also offer cards, mugs, bags and plenty of other printed products!

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!

Art Print | Portrait of a Rose

Rosenrot Agape Mädchenportrait

A quite old portrait that catched my attention when I was sorting out work for my new portfolio, and I couldn’t resist renovating it. The new version may become an art print soon?

Art Print in Screen Print Style | Panorama

Siebdruck in rot-türkis von einer Zeichnung eines Pinup Mädchens im gepunkteten Höschen am Fenster zur Stadt Paris im Sommer, von Iris Luckhaus

I had a little time in between and tried some new styles with old poses. It’s so much fun to work a little rougher and with only two colours! And to think about making my own screen prints.

Art Print | Fashion Drawing | Little Dresses

Retro-Modezeichnungen von Iris Luckhaus im Stil der Sixties mit Beehive, kleinen Kleidchen und großen Sonnenbrillen

Little series of little dresses, inspired by a pile of old fashion magazines.

Series of Portraits | Heroines I

Comic Popart Retro Tusche Zeichnung mit Portraits von Brigitte Bardot und Audrey Hepburn als Heldinnen der Sixties

Kunstdruck | Seascape III (Diving in)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem Mädchen im Bikini beim Schwimmen und Tauchen im Meer als Seestück

Those girls are a lot of fun to draw right now (especially as the hair is completely black and I don’t have to draw the usual strands which look pretty but are a terrible lot of work) – slowly this is becoming a series, and maybe prints at some point?

Art Print | Seascape II (Coquetry)

Zeichnung mit Tusche und Collage von einem koketten Mädchen im Sturm an der Relings an Bord eines Ozeandampfers oder Schiffs auf See mit hohen Wellen als Seestück von Iris Luckhaus

I just started to scan some of my small, simple in between sketches and to try out some new styles… which is great, great fun. And it looks like the greyish seascapes are slowly becoming a series, following the first try last year (image below).

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Ausschnitt aus der Illustration von drei Freundinnen im Café, die Cupcakes essen, Kaffee trinken und fröhlich Gossip verbreiten, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Illustrations for a material brochure by Schock, a producer of granite sinks. My briefing was to contrast two different material lines by using the idea and mood behind them. So, this is my design for the younger, more trendy and astonishingly colourful Cristalite series: Three friends take a break from shopping, chat, drink coffee and eat pastel coloured cupackes in a street café.

The last time I checked, there were only 92 pieces of the beautiful limited edition left, so better hurry up if you’d like to play with these cards (or hang them on your wall)!

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Illustration einer schönen Frau im roten Abendkleid, die bei Sonnenaufgang Champagner auf einer Brücke in Paris trinkt, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Designs for an (unpublished) brochure by Schock granite sinks. The idea was to contrast two very different materials, their image rather than the actual product. This is my illustration for the classic and classy series Cristadur.

Zeichnung der Herzdame (Queen of Hearts) Spielkarte für das 52 Aces Reloaded Pokerdeck für Zeixs von Iris Luckhaus

It’s a great pleasure for me to introduce you to my Queen of Hearts!

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.

For the textile magazine ‘Kettenwirk-Praxis’, I illustrated a topic called ‘Hightech meets Klassik: Panties in Art Nouveau Design’. For that, I took a picture of the sewn panties on a mannequin, scanned the fabric sample and collaged both into the illustration.
