It’s funny how you make plans, but life interferes, inspiration hits you and suddenly your way changes.
Long story short: Actually, I planned a series of NoS(Northern Sphinx)-related small acrylic paintings, where I’ll paint 1-2 per month for the rest of the year. Well … last weekend I drew five. And it turns out that they are connected in a special way, as, all together, they tell a part of the background-story of NoS. So I decided to make a sort of comic out of those little works.
So, here’s a photo of the current state:

All three test prints are done and finally also painted! (find more pictures below) Read More
(escalated sketch; mainly ballpoint pen + white pencil into my A4 grey-paper sketchbook)
I paint a universe
On the ceiling, in the sky
Then it awakens, it consumes me
I stand between worlds
Halfway here, hallway there
In between I’m at home
(Work in progress. Started as a sketch, but then escalated. Concept art of a fantasy owl design.)
I called out for the otherworld and the cry of the owl answered me.

I had a dream. And it remained in my mind, heart, soul … forever.
Finally. The day has come. The monsters from my mind become real.

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world, but a world lives in you.”

and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die.“
