Identification Chart | Leaves of Trees and Shrubs

Identification chart, ID, field guide, display board, infographic or learning poster for identifying leaves or leaf shapes of trees and shrubs such as apple, sycamore, birch, blackberry, beech, sweet chestnut, mountain ash, rowan, alder, ash, aspen, field maple, buckthorn, lilac, rosehip, hornbeam, dogwood, hazel, elderberry, cherry, cherry laurel, lime, poplar, plane tree, robinia, horse chestnut, rhododendron, red oak, blackthorn, holly, Norway maple, English oak, sessile oak, elm, walnut, willow, hawthorn in the forest, woods, woodlands, field, park or garden, for botanists and tree huggers, by Iris Luckhau

This summer, we’ve been out and about in forests, fields, parks and gardens a lot, and enjoyed identifying trees! We noticed that the distinction between tree and shrub is quite impractical for identifying leaves on the go!, and therefore, I decided to extend my 25 Tree Leaves identification chart to 36 Tree and Shrub Leaves, to cover the most common large, woody plants! The infographics is now available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!), Redbubble and Søciety6.

Posters & Products | 30% Discount on everything at RedBubble

RedBubble Rabatte

I just saw that RedBubble is offering amazing discounts again today: a whopping 30% off everything with the code 30PROZENT, until September 28th! So it’s a good thing that I’ve cleaned up my shop a bit over the past few weeks, lovingly revised all the products and adapted them better to the very different product formats!

Art Prints | Identification Chart for Garden Birds

Identification chart, infographic or learning poster to identify European Songbirds or Garden Birds such as Blackbird / Merle, Blackcap / Blackjack, Blackstart, Blue Tit / Nun, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Carrion Crow, Chiffchaff, City / Street Dove, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Crested Tit, Cuckoo, Dunnock, Fieldfare, Firecrest, Garden Warbler, Goldcrest, Golden Oriole, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Greenfinch, Grosbeak / Hawfinch, House Martin, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Jay, Kingfisher, Lesser Whitethroat, Linnet / Flax Finch, Long-Tailed Tit, Magpie, Marsh Tit, Marsh Warbler, Nightingale, Nuthatch, Pied Flycatcher, Pied Wagtail, Redstart, Reed Bunting, Robin, Serin Finch, Skylark, Song Thrush / Mavis, Spotted Flycatcher, Starling, Swallow, Swift / Martlet, Tree Creeper, Tree Sparrow / Field Sparrow, Wood Pigeon, Wren, Willow Warbler and Yellowhammer / Yellow Bunting, from the families of Sparrows, Tits, Woodpeckers, Finches, Jays, Buntings, Warblers, Thrushes, Treecreepers, Larks, Flycatchers, Redstarts and Pigeons, by iris Luckhaus

After publishing my Songbirds last year, I now lovingly revised all birds to make them even more distinctive! The new version is now available as a poster in German and English from Posterlounge (also eBay!) and printed on cards, mugs, bags, shirts, pillows, towels, blankets, cases, stickers and other products from Redbubble and Søciety6.

Art Prints | Identification Charts with Foliage Trees

Identification chart, infographic, field guide or learning poster for identifying the shape or silhouette, the leaves or leaf shapes, the fruit, nut, acorn or seed, as well as the buds and shoots of European foliage, broadleaf or deciduous trees such as Alder, Ash, Beech, Birch, Buckeye, Hazel, Hornbeam, Lime, Maple, Oak, Poplar and Willow, by Iris Luckhaus

After drawing Tree Shapes, Leaves, Fruits and Shoots, I have put all these characteristics of the most common foliage trees into a single identification chart, which is helpful to get to know the tree species and identify them over all the seasons. The identification chart is available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!), Redbubble und Søciety6!

Art Print | Identification Chart with Urban Wildlife

Educational poster, display board, identification chart or infographic for identification of wild animals or urban or suburban wildlife in or close to the city such as marten, beech marten, ermine, weasel, least weasel, polecat, forest polecat, river otter, otter, badger, fox, red fox, raccoon, roe deer, deer, fawn, wild boar, piglet, muskrat, Norway rat, brown rat, mole, hedgehog, rabbit, beaver, hare, field hare, bat, field mouse, wood mouse, dormouse and squirrel by Iris Luckhaus

After illustrating the Wildlife of New England last year, planning a color version of my black-and-white forest animals for a long time and recently working more often with and about urban wildlife, at some point it made sense to create an identification chart with wildlife close to settlements, i.e. wild animals that can actually be seen in the city and on walks! The illustration is finally finished and already available now at the Posterlounge (also via eBay!).

Statement | Why Masks and Mask Mandates still Matter

Illustration einer kleinen Demonstration in der städtischen Nachbarschaft für die Maskenpflicht in öffentlichen Räumen wie Nah- und Fernverkehr, Arztpraxen, Behörden, Grundversorgung, Einzelhandel, Schule und Arbeitsplatz – mit Schildern, die zum Schutz der Vulnerablen, Risikopersonen und Kindern um das Tragen von Masken bitten, von Iris Luckhaus

The German Infektionsschutzgesetz (Infection Protection Act) was amended March 20, 2022. In addition to other measures, the mask requirement in public spaces is no longer applicable. Here I would like to explain why I don’t think this is right, and why it is important to continue to wear a mask in public spaces, even if it’s not mandatory.

Art Prints | Identification Chart with Culinary Herbs

Educational poster, display board, identification chart or infographic for identification of the leaves, branches and stems of the most popular kitchen herbs, garden herbs or wild herbs such as basil, wild garlic, savory, borage, watercress, cress, dill, tarragon, fennel, chervil, coriander, spearmint, mint, lovage, laurel, marjoram, oregano, parsley, burnet, pimpinella, rocket, arugula, rosemary, sage, sorrel, chives, thyme, woodruff, lemon balm or balm by Iris Luckhaus

In the meantime, I’ve finished my identification chart on kitchen herbs that I started years ago (but never found time to edit), mainly because I wanted to know for myself what is what and because it’s so exciting to try and understand and draw the blueprint of plants! The chart is now available via Posterlounge [eBay], Redbubble and Søciety6.

Art Prints | Identification Chart with Tree Leaves

Educational poster, display board, identification chart or infographic for identifying the leaves or leaf shapes of European trees such as apple, crab apple, maple, sycamore, birch, silver birch, beech, common beech, alder, black alder, ash, aspen, field maple , hornbeam, hazel, hazelnut, cherry, wild cherry, linden, small-leaf linden, bora-leaf linden, poplar, black poplar, plane tree, black locust, horse chestnut, buckeye, red oak, oak, Norway maple, holly, ilex, English oak, German oak, sessile oak, elm, field elm, rowan, mountain ash, willow or white willow by Iris Luckhaus

After a couple of years, in which I learned a great deal about trees – partly thanks to my client, the Niedersächsische Landesforsten – I recently completely revised and lovingly corrected the details of my tree leaves, so that every tiny line is finally right (I hope :))! The revised identification chart is now available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!).

Art Prints | Wall Chart with Wildlife of New England

Infographic Wall Chart featuring the wildlife of new England, such as Blue Jay, Northern Cardinal, Black-capped Chickadee, Robin, Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, Carolina Wren, Tufted Titmouse, Eastern Bluebird, Goldfinch, Baltimore Oriole, White-breasted Nuthatch, Mallard Duck, Duckling, White-footed Deer-mouse, Flying Squirrel, Garden Snail, Northern Green Frog, Spotted Salamander, Painted Turtle, Virginia Opossum, Hedgehog, Groundhog, Woodchuck, Chipmunk, Red Squirrel, Striped Skunk, Cottontail Rabbit, Red Admiral, Tailed Blue, Clouded Sulphur, Monarch Butterfly, Least Weasel, American Pine Marten, River Otter, Fly Amanita, Gray Fox, Red Fox and Common Raccoon.

As part of my “Foxy goes Hiking” project, I’ve researched and illustrated a whole lot of the smaller animals of New England. When the abundance became confusing, I’ve turned them into another identification chart, and now the infographics is available at Redbubble and Søciety6, printed on posters, art prints, notebooks, postcards and mugs as pictured below, as well as bags, shirts, pillows, scarves, blankets, covers, stickers and plenty of other products!

Art Print (Special Birth Gift) | Foxy goes Hiking

Illustration of a hiking little fox cub with a backpack in the autumnal New England mountains with purple skies, accompanied by a pair of Northern Cardinala, a Black-capped Chickadee, an American Robin, a Sparrow, a Downy Woodpecker, a pair of Tufted Titmousea, an Eastern Bluebird, a Goldfinch, a Baltimore Oriole, a White-breasted Nuthatch, a family of Mallard Ducks and four Ducklings, a White-footed Deer-mouse, a Flying Squirrel, a Garden Snail, a Northern Green Frog, a Spotted Salamander, a Painted Turtle, a Virginia Opossum, a Hedgehog (as the project started with the "hedgehog hike", the hedgehog became sort of our unicorn :)), two Groundhogs or Woodchucks, a Chipmunk, a Red Squirrel, a Striped Skunk, two Cottontail Rabbits, two Red Admirals, a Tailed Blue, a Clouded Sulphur, a Monarch Butterfly, a Least Weasel, an American Pine Marten, a River Otter, two Fly Amanitas, and a Common Raccoon, by Iris Luckhaus.

Little Foxy was one of my favorite projects this year! It all started with a friend enquiring me to draw a special art print for the birth of a friends’ daughter, and it involved extensive research (like, snooping the new mother’s blog for likes and interests :)), finding a new style (I’ve never drawn anthropomorphic animals before, and it was more fun than expected!), figuring out that New England’s wildlife is surprisingly different from European wildlife (American robins are actually thrushs!) and, somehow, drawing so many of these animals that they got their own wall chart!

Note Books and Gym Bags for Stadtwildtiere

Notizhefte mit Fährten und Trittsiegeln für Stadtwildtiere von Iris Luckhaus und HiddenTracks

Together with tracker Stefanie Argow from HiddenTracks and Dr. Sarah Kiefer from Stadtwildtiere.de, the Citizen Science Project of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW), I designed two notebooks and a gym bag, for their advertising and as an identification aid for wild animals whose tracks can be found in the city of Berlin.

I’ve been working on my European Songbirds wall chart for several years, every now and then. It takes some effort to not just copy a photo, but to create a generalized cross-section from countless images – but that is exactly what helps with the identification! In addition to posters, notebooks, postcards and mugs as pictured above, there are bags, shirts, pillows, scarves, blankets, covers, stickers and many other products available on Redbubble and Søciety6 now.

Drafts for a Bulgarian Fairy Tale

Illustration zu The Little Girl and the Winter Whirlwinds mit Bulgarischen Trachten von Iris Luckhaus

For a client who doesn’t want to be mentioned, I’ve made some drafts to illustrate the Bulgarian fairy tale “The little Girl and the Winter Whirlwinds”.

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 retro school layout, and they’re already available at the Posterlounge (also via eBay!).

Summer cards crafted with dressup doll Gerti

DIY-Anziehpuppe "Gerti geht baden" für den Sommer

Via Instagram, I discovered lots of cards which DIY bloggers crafted with the stamp and die set “Gerti geht baden” (Gerti goes swimming) by Charlie & Paulchen – and some of them are so amazing, unique and full of stunning ideas that I just can’t stop looking, so I thought it would be nice to show them here and recommend those bloggers!

Identification Chart | Leaves of Trees and Shrubs

Identification chart, ID, field guide, display board, infographic or learning poster for identifying leaves or leaf shapes of trees and shrubs such as apple, sycamore, birch, blackberry, beech, sweet chestnut, mountain ash, rowan, alder, ash, aspen, field maple, buckthorn, lilac, rosehip, hornbeam, dogwood, hazel, elderberry, cherry, cherry laurel, lime, poplar, plane tree, robinia, horse chestnut, rhododendron, red oak, blackthorn, holly, Norway maple, English oak, sessile oak, elm, walnut, willow, hawthorn in the forest, woods, woodlands, field, park or garden, for botanists and tree huggers, by Iris Luckhau

This summer, we’ve been out and about in forests, fields, parks and gardens a lot, and enjoyed identifying trees! We noticed that the distinction between tree and shrub is quite impractical for identifying leaves on the go!, and therefore, I decided to extend my 25 Tree Leaves identification chart to 36 Tree and Shrub Leaves, to cover the most common large, woody plants! The infographics is now available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!), Redbubble and Søciety6.

Posters & Products | 30% Discount on everything at RedBubble

RedBubble Rabatte

I just saw that RedBubble is offering amazing discounts again today: a whopping 30% off everything with the code 30PROZENT, until September 28th! So it’s a good thing that I’ve cleaned up my shop a bit over the past few weeks, lovingly revised all the products and adapted them better to the very different product formats!

Art Prints | Identification Chart for Garden Birds

Identification chart, infographic or learning poster to identify European Songbirds or Garden Birds such as Blackbird / Merle, Blackcap / Blackjack, Blackstart, Blue Tit / Nun, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Carrion Crow, Chiffchaff, City / Street Dove, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Crested Tit, Cuckoo, Dunnock, Fieldfare, Firecrest, Garden Warbler, Goldcrest, Golden Oriole, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Greenfinch, Grosbeak / Hawfinch, House Martin, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Jay, Kingfisher, Lesser Whitethroat, Linnet / Flax Finch, Long-Tailed Tit, Magpie, Marsh Tit, Marsh Warbler, Nightingale, Nuthatch, Pied Flycatcher, Pied Wagtail, Redstart, Reed Bunting, Robin, Serin Finch, Skylark, Song Thrush / Mavis, Spotted Flycatcher, Starling, Swallow, Swift / Martlet, Tree Creeper, Tree Sparrow / Field Sparrow, Wood Pigeon, Wren, Willow Warbler and Yellowhammer / Yellow Bunting, from the families of Sparrows, Tits, Woodpeckers, Finches, Jays, Buntings, Warblers, Thrushes, Treecreepers, Larks, Flycatchers, Redstarts and Pigeons, by iris Luckhaus

After publishing my Songbirds last year, I now lovingly revised all birds to make them even more distinctive! The new version is now available as a poster in German and English from Posterlounge (also eBay!) and printed on cards, mugs, bags, shirts, pillows, towels, blankets, cases, stickers and other products from Redbubble and Søciety6.

Art Prints | Identification Charts with Foliage Trees

After drawing Tree Shapes, Leaves, Fruits and Shoots, I have put all these characteristics of the most common foliage trees into a single identification chart, which is helpful to get to know the tree species and identify them over all the seasons. The identification chart is available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!), Redbubble und Søciety6!

Art Print | Identification Chart with Urban Wildlife

After illustrating the Wildlife of New England last year, planning a color version of my black-and-white forest animals for a long time and recently working more often with and about urban wildlife, at some point it made sense to create an identification chart with wildlife close to settlements, i.e. wild animals that can actually be seen in the city and on walks! The illustration is finally finished and already available now at the Posterlounge (also via eBay!).

Statement | Why Masks and Mask Mandates still Matter

Illustration einer kleinen Demonstration in der städtischen Nachbarschaft für die Maskenpflicht in öffentlichen Räumen wie Nah- und Fernverkehr, Arztpraxen, Behörden, Grundversorgung, Einzelhandel, Schule und Arbeitsplatz – mit Schildern, die zum Schutz der Vulnerablen, Risikopersonen und Kindern um das Tragen von Masken bitten, von Iris Luckhaus

The German Infektionsschutzgesetz (Infection Protection Act) was amended March 20, 2022. In addition to other measures, the mask requirement in public spaces is no longer applicable. Here I would like to explain why I don’t think this is right, and why it is important to continue to wear a mask in public spaces, even if it’s not mandatory.

Art Prints | Identification Chart with Culinary Herbs

In the meantime, I’ve finished my identification chart on kitchen herbs that I started years ago (but never found time to edit), mainly because I wanted to know for myself what is what and because it’s so exciting to try and understand and draw the blueprint of plants! The chart is now available via Posterlounge [eBay], Redbubble and Søciety6.

Art Prints | Identification Chart with Tree Leaves

Educational poster, display board, identification chart or infographic for identifying the leaves or leaf shapes of European trees such as apple, crab apple, maple, sycamore, birch, silver birch, beech, common beech, alder, black alder, ash, aspen, field maple , hornbeam, hazel, hazelnut, cherry, wild cherry, linden, small-leaf linden, bora-leaf linden, poplar, black poplar, plane tree, black locust, horse chestnut, buckeye, red oak, oak, Norway maple, holly, ilex, English oak, German oak, sessile oak, elm, field elm, rowan, mountain ash, willow or white willow by Iris Luckhaus

After a couple of years, in which I learned a great deal about trees – partly thanks to my client, the Niedersächsische Landesforsten – I recently completely revised and lovingly corrected the details of my tree leaves, so that every tiny line is finally right (I hope :))! The revised identification chart is now available at Posterlounge (also via eBay!).

Art Prints | Wall Chart with Wildlife of New England

Infographic Wall Chart featuring the wildlife of new England, such as Blue Jay, Northern Cardinal, Black-capped Chickadee, Robin, Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, Carolina Wren, Tufted Titmouse, Eastern Bluebird, Goldfinch, Baltimore Oriole, White-breasted Nuthatch, Mallard Duck, Duckling, White-footed Deer-mouse, Flying Squirrel, Garden Snail, Northern Green Frog, Spotted Salamander, Painted Turtle, Virginia Opossum, Hedgehog, Groundhog, Woodchuck, Chipmunk, Red Squirrel, Striped Skunk, Cottontail Rabbit, Red Admiral, Tailed Blue, Clouded Sulphur, Monarch Butterfly, Least Weasel, American Pine Marten, River Otter, Fly Amanita, Gray Fox, Red Fox and Common Raccoon.

As part of my “Foxy goes Hiking” project, I’ve researched and illustrated a whole lot of the smaller animals of New England. When the abundance became confusing, I’ve turned them into another identification chart, and now the infographics is available at Redbubble and Søciety6, printed on posters, art prints, notebooks, postcards and mugs as pictured below, as well as bags, shirts, pillows, scarves, blankets, covers, stickers and plenty of other products!

Art Print (Special Birth Gift) | Foxy goes Hiking

Illustration of a hiking little fox cub with a backpack in the autumnal New England mountains with purple skies, accompanied by a pair of Northern Cardinala, a Black-capped Chickadee, an American Robin, a Sparrow, a Downy Woodpecker, a pair of Tufted Titmousea, an Eastern Bluebird, a Goldfinch, a Baltimore Oriole, a White-breasted Nuthatch, a family of Mallard Ducks and four Ducklings, a White-footed Deer-mouse, a Flying Squirrel, a Garden Snail, a Northern Green Frog, a Spotted Salamander, a Painted Turtle, a Virginia Opossum, a Hedgehog (as the project started with the "hedgehog hike", the hedgehog became sort of our unicorn :)), two Groundhogs or Woodchucks, a Chipmunk, a Red Squirrel, a Striped Skunk, two Cottontail Rabbits, two Red Admirals, a Tailed Blue, a Clouded Sulphur, a Monarch Butterfly, a Least Weasel, an American Pine Marten, a River Otter, two Fly Amanitas, and a Common Raccoon, by Iris Luckhaus.

Little Foxy was one of my favorite projects this year! It all started with a friend enquiring me to draw a special art print for the birth of a friends’ daughter, and it involved extensive research (like, snooping the new mother’s blog for likes and interests :)), finding a new style (I’ve never drawn anthropomorphic animals before, and it was more fun than expected!), figuring out that New England’s wildlife is surprisingly different from European wildlife (American robins are actually thrushs!) and, somehow, drawing so many of these animals that they got their own wall chart!

Note Books and Gym Bags for Stadtwildtiere

Notizhefte mit Fährten und Trittsiegeln für Stadtwildtiere von Iris Luckhaus und HiddenTracks

Together with tracker Stefanie Argow from HiddenTracks and Dr. Sarah Kiefer from Stadtwildtiere.de, the Citizen Science Project of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW), I designed two notebooks and a gym bag, for their advertising and as an identification aid for wild animals whose tracks can be found in the city of Berlin.

I’ve been working on my European Songbirds wall chart for several years, every now and then. It takes some effort to not just copy a photo, but to create a generalized cross-section from countless images – but that is exactly what helps with the identification! In addition to posters, notebooks, postcards and mugs as pictured above, there are bags, shirts, pillows, scarves, blankets, covers, stickers and many other products available on Redbubble and Søciety6 now.
