The past weeks have been busy day and night. This week I´m having a short break and then the next few weeks will be crazy again. Tonight I took the chance to complete my pictures in Wil´s Alphabet Moleskine for the moly_x_6 group of the International Moleskine Exchange group. I had fun with it.
I chose these 4 letters: E(mily), I(guana), O(ktoberfest) and T(Antin). I pondered a long time about the kind of pictures I could draw. I couldn´t decide between comic characters, typical German pictures or animals, so I mixed them all up.
I´m a huge comic fan, but I have never read any Emily the Strange comic. Can you believe that???? I almost can´t. Still I love this little character.
I enjoy drawing reptiles and insects, so this Iguana is one of them. He is watching closely over the fantastic head wound. (I have to admit that for one second I was wondering if anybody would notice, if I cut out that page and keep it for myself. ;) Hey David, in case you ever have some spare time we could exchange a little drawing. It isn´t nice to have your moly art in my hands and having to pass it on without every having the chance of keeping it.)
The Oktoberfest just ended this weekend and suddenly the US tourists have decreased in numbers significantly. Every year there is a special logo which is printed on the Steins, T-Shirts, bags, etc. This is it:
Tintin is my childhood comic hero. We had each and every issue of the comic. When we came back to Germany I noticed that the characters are called "Tim und Struppi" here. Haven´t got used to it yet.
