Thies : Mod Boy

Just a quick sketch.

Happy new year!

Quick and Dirty


Heute muss ich mal richtig improvisieren! Voll im Weihnachtsstress und weder Zeichenutensilien noch irgendein bilderfassungsapparat am start. Also muss das in ein paar sekunden mit nem edding 800, etwas roter Farbe aufm Taschentuch und Rostschutzgrund aus der Dose klappen... Dann noch eben vor die Webcam gehalten und ab dafür!

Sorry, I'm in X-mas Trouble. just used a the biggest Marker, a hankerchief with red color and a can of anti-rust-primer.
shot wih my webcam!

Kommt gut durch!

Thies : Prejeme Vam Vesele Vanoce!





Deep in the Czech woods a crowd of lovely little beings are toddling around. If you`ll quiet down you can here their calling "Prejeme Vam Vesele Vanoce!" all-around.


Merry Christmas, you crazy folks!

Olf : Crusader!






This is again a sketch I did accidentally at work last week. Just to distract my mind a little. This time with pencil. I tried to give it a slightly old-fashioned feel with warm yellowish colors. Of course I couldn't resist to add a light rim. I especially like how the glow came out.

For this is my last post before the holidays I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

All the best,

Oliver

Der Trick mit den Taschen


Eigentlich kann ich mir den Schuss heute ja gar nicht erlauben, denn ich geh ja gerade mit meinem Lebensabendfinanzierungsprojekt an Markt - Da brennt die Luft!
Um zumindest im Thema zu bleiben hab ich mir nochmal den alten Trick mit den Taschen - der Pushup für Füchse - vorgenommen.
Sex sells, wer also noch ein Weihnachtsgeschenk für einen Juristen sucht geht mal auf www.para-pack.de !

The 'Bag-Clou' : the Pushup for the clever ones. this work was inspiered by my brandnew Product, the Parapack...

Thies : 52 Hertz Whale



This is my illustration for Agnieszka Jurek`s Book/CD-Compilation "52-Hertz-Whale"
(Tapurek Verlag) about the three misfits Copito (an albino gorilla), Lonesome George
(giant tortoise) and the 52-Hertz-Whale.

Watch out!

Olf : Cop Suey!



At Work I like to play a little game and ask a colleague to say something, which I'll have to draw. This time it went like this:

"OK, say something."
"Errr ... Giraffe."
"Well ... say something else."
"Crazy Cop?"
"That's OK!"

Then I did a spontaneous scribble which wasn't too crazy at all, but that's where the idea came from. I coloured it on friday and added the badge. So I'm quite early this time. But I didn't have my gun digest at hand so be forgiving if the gun isn't too accurate ...

By the way, the sandwich is of course low-fat because he minds keeping his body in shape. But he's a tough guy nevertheless.

Thanks to Michael for the inspiration.

Cheers,

Olfie

Henning : I hate that funny stuff !!!


The last days I tried to draw some funny-monster-stuff !
...and failed!
...again!

Today I tried to work the other way and worked on grandmaster Olf's Arctic monster!
Scoll down and check out his original version !!

Tja Leute, lustig ist einfach nicht mein Ding. Ich mußte es wieder
einmal schmerzlich feststellen.
...Aber ich versuche zu lernen. und habe mir zu Übungszwecken mal Olf's
Arctic Monster vorgenommen!

Vielleicht klappts ja beim näxten mal!

Music-Moves Part1



ich hab ja letztens noch mit dem Kurth über die neuen Posen der Musiker diskutiert und denke es ist Zeit ein Kamasutra für den zeitgmäßen Frontmann zusammenzustellen. der erste Wurf ist nicht wirklich meiner Recherche auf dem Spandau miniFestival entsprungen sondern eher eine Eigenkreation, die aber ein paar wichtige Parameter erfüllt. Meine Beobachtungen können zumindest in folgender Checkliste zusammengefasst werden:

1. Nicht Posen! Immer brav authentisch bleiben.
2. Niemals 'klassisch schön'! Wahrer Rock entspringt dem Schmerz den schöne Menschen nie kennenlernen mussten.
3. Zeig allen wie vollgedröhnt du bist! Egal ob Drogen, Gefühle oder Döner, es muss raus!
4. Wenn der 80er Rock die Männlichkeit mit breiten Beinen präsentierte, darf nun wieder halbstark und ungelenk rumgezuckt werden. (Es sieht so aus als hätte er seinen Körper nur geliehen und würde immer noch versuchen herrauszufinden wie er funktioniert...)

Mal sehen was mir noch fürn Schwachsinn einfällt, dann gibt's ne zugabe!

The new School of posing in contemporary Guitar-Pop! It's quite difficult to be real and authentic while Mtv shows you how...

Thies : My Toilet Paper Roll Gets Lost In Translation

Henning : Oldie but Goldie

In November / December 1995 Phillip Hartmann started writing on his Sci-fi-dream project and put Jensemann and me as illustrators on board.

This 11 years old little fella here is one of my favorite illus from that time.

The movie-project never went into production;
But for me this creative session was kind of a startingpoint for what I'm doing now!

Thanks Guys for giving me that opportunity!

Thies : Toilet Paper Rolls (Royce) Pt. 2



Brand new from my bathing room!
Today my toilet paper rolls turn into Mack the Knife in his well-known movie role.
Here`s a still photograph from the full-length home movie in my wash basin (yes, without water, because I`ve no underwater camera. But the spectators eyes will be able to complete this abstraction - maybe you`ll discover: It`s a Dogma Movie...)

Olf : Let's Go Fly A Kite!


Every day we go to lunch we walk through the town hall park where some beautiful tall trees are growing. So we saw them change the colors throughout autumn.

Last week I spontaneously drew the tree on the left in photoshop after lunch. Later I tried out a couple of different backgrounds before I decided to add the little kid with the kite. This time I used no outlines at all, which I do very seldom. (You' can find a close-up of the boy here.)

Hope you like this rather romantic autumn impression.

Cheers,

Olfie

Thies : Rock`n`Toilet Paper Rolls





These nice guys are based upon Olf`s revolutionary idea of toilet paper characters
(do you remember?).(I´m looking forward to his top secret project...)

So here is my toilet paper roll alternative.

A rider in the glorious mongolian sunset. You'll have to imagine the horse yourself. Or maybe he's riding a yak? Mongolians enjoy a nice yak-ride in the morning.

Rattenfänger

This week i was pushed by my Ex-Girlfrind to draw something with a kitten. So I decided to gain our Google-hits!

Please enjoy this sweet pussy. After she eat a creampie she cleans herself. I like the pink of the tongue and censored private parts. I used a special creative-technique called Music-Inspired-Lutz-Flow, aka MILF. I just listen to music and let it flow. Sometimes it works great and sometimes the result is just pure nonsense. I think I've read too much MAD my teen days.

Ich glaub in deutsch macht das noch weniger Sinn! Mal sehen wie das die Googlestatistik beeinflusst - Zur Not mal ich nächste Woche einen großen Hahn.

P.S. Vielleicht sollte ich über eine Karriere im Witze-T-Shirt-Markt nachdenken... Oder ne Jamba-Spar-Abo-Handyhintergrund-Krankheit rausdrücken....

Thies : Ghostrider In The Sky





I deal with a Two-In-One-Subject today:
Eerie skeletons together with last weeks dusty Western style.
This desperado has been riding much too long in the desert, but nevermind he´s still on his mission to rob the national bank.

(...and another special ride on a horror cover by Jose Mirelles - für die Actiongülle-gestählten Nerven von Doc Ahlers)

(Mir fällt zum Thema noch das legendäre Kunstgeschichtsseminar bei Mr. Friese ein und den dort gesehenen schnarchlangweiligen Streifen "Die Nacht der reitenden Leichen". Lang, lang ist´s her...))

Olf : Analog Arctic Monster!



Just a quick marker sketch I did at work today for no reason. I only added the blue background at the computer.

Looks pretty winterly, doesn't it?

Westernwochen bei MCScribble


Ich surf mal ein bisschen auf der Welle von Jörn und Henning mit und mach auch mal nen Galgenvogel. Von 'Edelwestern' inspiriert, aber nicht wirklich edel hab ich ein bisschen mit meiner Feder rumgekratzt. Irgendwie fehlt ihm im nachhinein doch der Hut, aber eigentlich wollte ich ihm keinen aufsetzen, sonst passt die Schlinge nicht....

I was pushed by 'them' to translate my shit for our international friends:

The Westernmood of Henning and Jörn let me remember my Comicroots. In my childhood my whole Family enjoyed a Comic-collection called Edel-Western. Highlight was the well known Blueberry, drawn by Giraud aka Moebius, my favourite Comicartist, btw. I allways dreamed of a Blueberrymovie, starring a young J.P. Belmondo. I think the movie of 2004 don't fit my personal view so I didn't see it so far. My hangdog could not mess with Blueberry also, he isn't GOOD at all, has a very BAD mood and is as UGLY as sin!

P.S.Heute poste ich schneller als mein schatten!

Thies : Still Cyco...




...After All These Years!
Including a brand new skull for Henning´s collection...

Olf : Variations on a Suit!


At the weekend I did a lot of scribbles, trying out various things. Usually I tend to have some variation in the thickness of the lines. This time I tried to have none at all. And in addition to that I wanted to use flat shading. So no big story behind this one - just practising.

I did at least a myriad color versions of this guy. Here are three. Decide for yourself which you like the most.

Cheers,

Olfie

Henning : Gestern Country, heute Western































After publishing the CASH post on Saturday, I was in a western-mood
and watched "The Wild Bunch"again.
Damn, what a movie ! This classic Peckinpah movie is THE milestone
in modern shootout sequences. All todays Action Directors
(like John Woo or the Matrix-guys) are heavy influenced by this
bloody stuff! If you are an action fan and don't know this one yet,
you have to check it out!
This drawing of Emilio Fernandez as the General Mapache can be the
start of a nice "Bunch of Drawings"

Olf : Happy Halloween!





Sorry, I'm a little bit late this time. I did a whole bunch of halloween-themed scribbles but I didn't get to the point. So I decided to colour just one of the scribbles - which actally took a little bit longer than epected. I'm quite busy at the moment anyway. Hope you like it nevertheless. Maybe I'll post some of the others in the future. Then you can keep them for next year's helloween ...

Trick or treat!
