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.

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 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.

Available | Fresh Art Prints via Posterlounge!

Poster von Iris Luckhaus bei der Posterlounge

After a really long time, I uploaded fresh illustrations for posters and art prints to the Posterlounge: Flora im Walde, the Rosenrot girl, the famous picnicerettes, my virtual secretary (named Antonie Seidensiefer), my Seestück series and the curious Märchenmädchen in Paris! – And maybe there’s going to be more printed products soon?

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!

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.

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!

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

Herzdame (Queen of Hearts) Spielkarte im 52 Aces Reloaded Pokerdeck für Zeixs im Set auf dem Tisch

Here they are, the “52 Aces Reloaded” poker decks by Zeixs – Books for Designers I illustrated the Queen of Hearts for a few months ago – and if you’re lucky, they’re still available! 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)!

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.
