Published | Forest Animals in Waldstück Magazine

Heimische Waldtiere und wie Du sie erkennst mit Form, Zeichnung und Habitus von Eichhörnchen, Hase, Igel, Kaninchen, Siebenschläfer, Waldmaus, Damhirsch, Wildschwein, Rehbock, Rothirsch, Dachs, Fischotter, Fuchs, Marder, Marderhund und Waschbär im Waldstück-Magazin der Niedersächsischen Landesforste

Today, I was very happy to receive my fresh specimens of the winter issue of »Waldstück«, the free magazine by Niedersächsische Landesforsten! For a kid’s poster inside that magazine, I illustrated the 16 most well-known native forest animals species. My graphics are accompanied by photos and some really interesting information.

Art Prints | Identification Sheets with Tree Fruits

Poster mit Infografiken zur Bestimmung von Heimischen Baumfrüchte und Baumzapfen, also Früchte und Zapfen, Samen und Saaten von Bäumen und Sträuchern wie Ahorn mit Nasen, Apfel, Birke mit Flügelnuss, Buche mit Bucheckern, Eberesche, Edelkastanie mit Maronen, Eibe, Eiche mit Eicheln, Erle, Esche, Fichte, Hainbuche, Hasel mit Nüssen, Holunder mit Beeren, Hundsrose mit Hagebutten, Kiefer, Kirsche, Lärche, Linde, Pappel, Platane, Robinie, Rosskastanie, Sanddorn, Stechpalme, Tanne, Ulme, Walnuss, Weide und Weißdorn.

The Niedersächsischen Landesforsten (forest administration of Lower Saxony), with whom I recently have developed 30 graphics for tree fruits, nuts, cones and seeds, allowed me to use my illustrations freely – so I have now set them up in my own layout, and they’re already available at the Posterlounge (soon also via Amazon and eBay!).

Published | Learning Posters for Forest Education

Lernposter mit Baumblättern, Tierspuren, Flugvögeln und Baumformen für die Waldpädagogik der Niedersächsischen Landesforsten

Die Niedersächsischen Landesforsten, für die ich seit Herbst 2017 die Grafiken für das Kinderposter im »Waldstück« Magazin erstelle, haben sich nun entschlossen, die ersten vier Poster zur Bestimmung von Blattformen, Tierspuren, Vogelsilhouetten und Baumformen auch in ihren Waldpädagogischen Zentren zu nutzen! Christian Talla, der die Poster immer so liebevoll layoutet und textet, hat den Inhalt hierfür flugs ins Din A2 Format gebracht.

Art Prints | Happy Birthday, Posterlounge!

I’d like to wholeheartedly congratulate them, and I’m also happy to announce that all month long, there’s a 15% discount on everything (amongst many other posters, my own illustrations, infographics und life drawings!) with the code “HAPPY15”. Btw, I’m on board for 12 years :)

The Niedersächsischen Landesforsten (forest administration of Lower Saxony), with whom I recently have developed 16 graphics for the typical silhouettes of different trees, allowed me to use my illustrations freely – so I have now set them up in my own layout, and they’re already available at the Posterlounge (soon also via Amazon and eBay!).

Finger Alphabet for Eltern Family in DB Mobil

My very simple two-handed Finger Alphabet has been part of the last April issue of the »Eltern Family« magazine – and now I am happy to announce that, thanks to a cooperation, it will also be presented on the online family pages of Deutsche Bahn, under the title »Geheimsprache als Zeitvertreib« (»Cipher Language as a Pastime«). Now I wonder if on my next train journey, I will see children using my grandmother’s very own hand alphabet?!

Wortschätzchen im VAG Facetten Magazin

»Warum fahren wir eigentlich gerne „ins Blaue“? Wieso hat unser Chef gelegentlich „eine Meise“? Und weshalb feiern wir auch mal „bis in die Puppen“? (…) Illustriert wurde das Buch von Iris Luckhaus mit liebevollen Grafiken im Sixties-Stil. Ein Grund mehr, sich nicht nur in die deutsche Sprache zu verlieben, sondern auch in dieses Buch.«

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!

Available | Smaller Artprints via Posterlounge

Posterserien von Iris Luckhaus bei der Posterlounge

My illustration and infographic art prints in portrait and landscape format are now, after several requests, also available in 30×40 cm (for € 9,90) at the Posterlounge (also via Amazon) – because thanks to the amazing Lydia, I managed to trick the mysterious algorythm which is responsible for generating those smaller formats!

Fresh Feature | Tree Leaf Poster at Anjiko

Blattformen Poster bei Anjiko

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! There’s even a contest where you can win a coupon for your own posters. – Thank you very much, dear Maria, for sending me the link!

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.

Fresh Feature | Tree Leaf Poster at Wunderhaftig

Blattformen Poster bei Wunderhaftig

“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.

EmpaTrain | Welcome to the Empathy Lab

Illustration von einem Empathie-Labor, wo Chemikerin und Chemiker in einem Labor mit Reagenzgläsern und Laborkolben, einem Wolfsskelett und Infografik zu Mimikresonanz, Vulkan und Giraffe die Formel für Empathie finden, für EmpaTrain

After drawing the Emmy und Patty breakfast board for EmpaTrain (specialist for non-violent communication and mediation), I now illustrated the second board for them, which shows an empathy lab – with lab scientists as well as the multitude of substances, facilities and materials you might need to brew empathy on a laboratory bench. This time, my illustration will not only become a breakfast board, but also be printed on postcards and posters, and it will not only be used for advertising their services, but also as a descriptive educational material in seminars!

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.

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.

Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal | Grifflenberg

Perspektivische Schwarzweiß Zeichnung der Gebäude der Uni Wuppertal, BUGH, am Grifflenberg, für die MasterCard der Stadtsparkasse für die Mitarbeiter der Uni

Once again, I’ve been drawing for the Wuppertaler Stadtsparkasse, this time a black-and-white view of the buildings of the University of Wuppertal (BUGH) on Grifflenberg. My illustration will soon be printed in ten different colour schemes on the front of a special mastercard for students and staff of the university.  For this project, I had to work very different from my usual process – not only without outlines, but also without people, details or colours, but precisely after a photograph, with correct perspectives – and it actually was a challenge, but a lot of fun as well!

Questionnaire for Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal

Zeichnung von einer Familie, einem Paar mit Kindern zum Ausmalen für einen Fragebogen der Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal

I just finished three more illustrations for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse! This time, the little house I illustrated a couple of months ago as a foldable model (and descriptional aid on renovating or refurbishing a house for the consultants) was supposed to be shown as part of a questionaire for personal financing concepts. Plus the Schmidt family, that lives in the house, and a money bag as a symbol for their own funds.

A foldable little house for the Stadtsparkasse

Faltbares Modell eines Hauses aus Pappe mit einer renovierten und einer unrenovierten Hälfte als Erklärhilfe für die Bausparer der Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal von Iris Luckhaus

I just finished illustrating the outside of a collapsible cardboard house (ca. 20 x 20 cm) for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse. This little house will be used to describe renovations and refurbishings of an old house, and why those make sense. It has an old, unrefurbished side and another that is all new and shiny, fully refurbished, and both contain typical details.
