Happy new year!

It´s 2012 by now and I wish you all the best for the new year!!!

The holidays went by swiftly, it was a really relaxed time, I made some new friends and surprisingly few new foes…

Meanwhile I keep drawing and once in a while I feel that I get a little better. Even though I am deeply connected to comics and their aesthetics, I find more and more influence in the classic art, like Michelangelo, Da Vinci or El Greco. Not that I could ever even dream of  copying them, but I love their use of symbols and gestures. I found me a sweet book about the development of the symbol from the early ages to renaissance, guess i`m kind of a nerd. On the other hand I came to adore Angelique Houtkamp, a dutch tattooer who creates the cleanest, most simple yet eloquent designs, maybe I can learn a thing or two from her stuff. There is just such a vast pool of ideas,traditions and artworks you can dig in…

I start to get my first appointments, until now they didn`t turn out bad and I am looking forward to the first guys who put enough trust in me to let me do something bigger on them. Until then I happily will do small works to improve my technique!

Song of the now: Minor Thread – I don`t wanna hear it
