Trali trala, finally a Summer Break!

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

We’re taking a little break for summer – and look forward to August, when we’ll continue fresh and rested, and when I can finally show you all the wonderful projects I’ve been working on but am not supposed to show yet!

Personal Work | Lola at the Beach

Lola am Strand, von Iris Luckhaus

With the series Lola macht Urlaub, I experiment with new techniques, patterns and colours between other projects. Inspired by almost summerish days, I tried to picture the slothy happiness of a warm, sunny afternoon by the sea.

Summer for Dressup Doll »Gerti geht baden«

DIY Stempel und Stanzen für Anziehpuppe Gerti geht baden im Sommer mit Badeanzug, Badetasche, Bikini, Sonnenbrille und Peeptoes

Gerti, the DIY dressup doll I designed, styled and illustrated as stamps and dies for the online shop Charlie & Paulchen, just got her third set of clothes and accessories for the summer! The fresh set is called »Gerti geht baden« (Gerti takes a bath), and it contains everything you need for a lovely day full of fun by the sea or by the lake!

Personal Work | Lola in the Café

Poster Lola im Cafe, von Iris Luckhaus

With the series Lola macht Urlaub (Lola is on vacation), I experiment with new techniques, patterns and colours inbetween other projects. Inspired by late winter, I tried to catch a summer evening in a French café here.

Winter for Dressup Doll “Gerti feiert Weihnachten”

DIY Stempel und Stanzen für Anziehpuppe Gerti im Winter mit Schlitten, Schlittschuhen und Eichhörnchen, Engel, Flügeln und Geschenken zur Weihnacht

Gerti, the DIY dressup doll I designed, styled and illustrated as stamps and dies for the online shop Charlie & Paulchen, just got new clothes and accessories for the winter! The fresh set is called “Gerti feiert Weihnachten” (Gerti celebrates Christmas) and contains elements of winter, snow sports and christmas, so Gerti is ready for many winter joys!

Now Available | DIY-Dressup Doll “Gerti geht Gassi”

DIY Stempel und Stanzen für Anziehpuppe Gerti geht Gassi im Herbst

For Charlie & Paulchen, an online shop for finest German stamps and dies, I designed the DIY dressup doll Gerti, as well as some seasonal outfits for her! With stamps, dies and various materials, Gerti can be crafted onto cards. 

Art Prints | New Nude Sketches at Posterlounge

Aktposter

My life drawings now have their own profile at the Posterlounge, but are still available via Amazon oder eBay! Furthermore, there are several new sketches, including some very simple experiments with ink and watercolour experiments (see below). All of them can be bought from € 6,90 for 30×30 cm or € 9,90 for 30×40 cm!

Art Prints | Life Class and Nudes

After receiving many enquiries about them over the years, I finally uploaded some of my older life class and nude sketches and drawings as art prints and to the Posterlounge! They’re also available via Amazon oder eBay

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.

Super Heroine for Barbara Magazin | Drafts

Illustration der Superheldin Barbararella für Barbara Magazin von Iris Luckhaus

I’m working on some confidential projects right now, which I’m not supposed to show (yet). Meanwhile, I’m sharing some Making Of for older work – like this first draft for super heroine Barbararella, which I designed and illustrated last year for an (unpublished) column in Gruner und Jahr’s “Barbara” magazine by Barbara Schöneberger.

Super-Heroine Barbararella for Barbara Magazine

Zeichnung von Barbara Schöneberger als Superheldin Barbararella für eine Kolumne im Barbara-Magazin von Iris Luckhaus

For Gruner und Jahr’s develepment of Barbara Schöneberger’s magazine “Barbara”, I designed and illustrated the super-heroine “Barbararella”. The picture above illustrates a column in which Barbara punishes a guy she catched peeing while standing, while her superhero collegue in the background is already waiting for their coffeebreak… Unfortunately, the series got never published, but it was great fun to draw. Thank you very much, Judith!

Mimi Fiedler | Balkantherapie | Vignettes

Vignetten für die Balkantherapie von Mimi Fiedler

For Mimi Fiedler’s book »Balkantherapie«, I illustrated the cover, some highly detailed pages, several physical exercises and also plenty of vignettes, of which I’d like to show a selection here.

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.

Bettgeschichten + Personal | A little Backstage Break

Zeichnung eines pausierenden Mädchens, das spät abends bequem im Sessel liegt, aus einer Herztasse trinkt und die Füße hochlegt, von Iris Luckhaus

Little in between illustration that somehow happened while I worked on the Bettgeschichten spread and which I cleaned, coloured and furnished now. Her name is Loulou, by the way, and she really needed a break. Maybe this will become a series?

Bettgeschichten | Signing, Exhibition & Reading!

Poster mit der Zeichnung eines Pinups, das aufreizend am Fenster für den Nachbarn posiert, für die Comic Anthologie Bettgeschichten und die Ausstellung

On September 22nd, we had the big signing, exhibition and reading “One Night Stand” celebrating the erotic anthology “Bettgeschichten – Comics für Erwachsene” (Hrsg: Naomi Fearn und Reinhard Kleist at Zwerchfell Verlag), for which I illustrated a spread with my “Frau Nachbarin” – and it was a wonderful evening! Many thanks to Naomi Fearn, Modern Graphics, Galerie Knoth und Krüger and all those who did actually read (and tell) their comics!

(Deutsch) Fresh Feature | Bettgeschichten Blog

Neuerdings gibt es einen wunderbaren neuen Blog zum erotischen Sammelband “Bettgeschichten – Comics für Erwachsene” (Hrsg: Naomi Fearn und Reinhard Kleist im Zwerchfell Verlag), wo sämtliche Zeichner vorgestellt werden und wo auch immer wieder schicke Links gepostet werden… vorgestern war ich dran, mit lauter schönen Worten:

“(…) kann ich nicht einfach mal ein schönes Bild haben, mit schönen Details, in dem ich verträumt versinken kann?” Aber ja, Cherie! Und zwar bei unserem wunderschönen Vektor-Wunder Iris Luckhaus. Als die einzige Künstlerin in unserem Buch, die neben Illustration auch noch Modedesign studiert hat (bei Vivienne Westwood, oh la la!) überrascht es nicht, daß sie neben Illustrationen für diverse Magazine auch noch Stylistin ist und Leute in 2 und 3D gut aussehen lässt.

Dankesehr, liebe Naomi! <3

Bettgeschichten | Composition for the Neighbour

Magazine Illustration | Mashup for Kettenwirkpraxis

Modezeichnung mit Bleistift und Collage in Sepia und Rosé von einem Pinup Mädchen, das in Unterwäsche am Fenster eines Hotels in Paris steht, für das Magazin Kettenwirkpraxis

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.
