Available | Animal Trail Poster with Hidden Tracks for Stadtwildtiere

Quiz für Kinder mit Tierspuren und Fährten von Igel, Waschbär, Wildschwein, Eichhörnchen und Fuchs, für Stadtwildtiere im IZW im BBIB, von Iris Luckhaus und Stefanie Argow

After being asked time and again if the animal trail poster I created with tracker Stefanie Argow and Dr. Sarah Kiefer of Stadtwildtiere.de, the Citizen Science project of the Leibniz-Instituts für Zoo- und Wildtierforschung (IZW), was available for purchase, we have now finally uploaded it to Redbubble [product page], where it can be ordered! The original size shown in this article, with life-size tracks, corresponds to the poster in large format, 85 x 120 cm.

Identification Chart | Leaves of Trees and Shrubs

Chart, ID, guide, display board, infographic or learning poster to identify leaves / leaf shapes of trees / shrubs like 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, robinia, horse chestnut, rhododendron, red oak, sloe, holly, Norway maple, English oak, sessile oak, elm, walnut, willow, hawthorn in forest, field, garden

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 (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

Infographie | Feuilles d’Arbres et d’Arbustes en Français

Affiche, tableau ou infographie pour identifier les feuilles d'arbres et d'arbustes tels que le pommier, érable sycomore, bouleau, mûrier, hêtre, sorbier des oiseleurs, aulne, frêne, tremble, érable champêtre, nerprun, lilas, églantier, charme, cornouiller, noisetier, sureau, cerisier, laurier-cerise, tilleul, peuplier, platane, robinier, marronnier, rhododendron, chêne rouge, prunellier, houx, érable de Norvège, chêne pédonculé, chêne allemand, chêne sessile, orme, noyer, saule, aubépine, châtaignier, chêne et érable en forêt

Cet été, nous nous sommes promenés souvent dans les forêts, les champs, les parcs et les jardins et nous avons identifié les arbres avec enthousiasme ! Nous avons remarqué que la distinction entre arbre et arbuste pour déterminer les feuilles au bord des chemins n’était pas très pratique, et c’est pourquoi, après mes 25 feuilles d’arbres, j’ai dessiné un tableau d’affichage élargi avec 36 feuilles d’arbres et d’arbustes, couvrant les plus courantes des grandes plantes ligneuses. Le motif est disponible chez Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble et Søciety6.

Infografik, Übersicht oder Lernposter mit Alphabeten, Codes oder Zeichensprachen wie Handalphabet oder Taubstummensprache, Winkeralphabet, Flaggenalphabet oder Semaphor, Blindenschrift oder Braille und Morsecode oder Morseschrift, von Iris Luckhaus

Finally, the series is complete! I revised my Two-Handed Finger Alphabet and Flag Semaphore and also edited the two alphabets that were still missing, Morse Code and Braille Alphabet, to fit in a poster format. The entire series is now available as posters or art prints at Posterlounge (also via eBay!) and as printed on lovely cards, mugs, bags, shirts, pillows, towels, blankets, cases, stickers and a whole lot of other beautiful products at Redbubble and Søciety6!

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.

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 be seen in the city and on walks! The illustration is finally finished and available at Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

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 available via Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

The revised identification chart is now available at Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

Note Books and Gym Bags for Stadtwildtiere

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 (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

Cet été, nous nous sommes promenés souvent dans les forêts, les champs, les parcs et les jardins et nous avons identifié les arbres avec enthousiasme ! Nous avons remarqué que la distinction entre arbre et arbuste pour déterminer les feuilles au bord des chemins n’était pas très pratique, et c’est pourquoi, après mes 25 feuilles d’arbres, j’ai dessiné un tableau d’affichage élargi avec 36 feuilles d’arbres et d’arbustes, couvrant les plus courantes des grandes plantes ligneuses. Le motif est disponible chez Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble et Søciety6.

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 be seen in the city and on walks! The illustration is finally finished and available at Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.

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 available via Posterlounge (Amazon / eBay), Redbubble and Søciety6.
