A few days ago I read "Habibi" by Craig Thompson...
http://www.habibibook.com/

I have no suitable words for this book... it trapped me within the first pages and kept me marveling, staggered and somehow bitter-sweet suffering through 4 or 5 hours of constantly reading - couldn't stop it.
Deep admiration, speechless, stunned... and untamed euphoria!

Inspired me to do this drawing.

I have so much to learn...

workshop paintings

from a workshop with the great french artist dominique goblet
an unusual way to work: avoid lines, define the forms only with space




a good advice from miss goblet: "when you're dry out of inspiration, just take one picture and repeat it, repeat it, repeat it!" anytime something will happen!

zombie sketches

of the 200 drawing series...

Ergotism

another exercise for "storytellers" seminar. a fellow student wrote a short text (he called "Ergotismus") about this picture of mine:
 
my turn was to create a short comic with two pages out of his text:


today's challenge: reduce and concentrate the comic to one page
and maybe unravel some cryptic elements.
