Olf : The Beauty and the Beast !


Last weekend I went to the wedding of my old pal Harm and his wonderful wife Renee. It was really really nice and we had a hell of a party! It's really astonishing how much you can drink when you're eating all the time. And the food was definately top-notch. The hotel was great. Even the band was great. In short: Big fat German wedding.

But the best was of course to meet all the old acquaintances and friends again.

And I did something for a present I do very seldom. I did a picture. People think that if you're working in a creative job you love to do birthday cards and stuff. But you know what? I hate doing birthday cards and stuff! I like to call it a day. It always stresses me. But this time I did it. And here it is. My wedding present. And they loved it! Well, maybe they were just polite ...

Anyway: Three cheers and all the best to you, Harm and Renee!

PS: Here you'll find a photo of the newly-weds I took the day after the party - so be merciful ...
PPS: Renee is from Canada. So canadian comments are particulary welcome this time!

Wir lieben die Lichtkante! Aber Olf, ob es so schlau war, das zu veröffentlichen? Da kommen jetzt sicherlich haufenweise Anfragen an den Hochzeitsmaler...

Hallo Oliver!!!!

The picture is absolutely great, we really love it! But we weren't too sure who is the beauty and who is the beast (especially when looking at the picture you took Sunday morning, ouch!!!)
Wir haben uns auch gefreut, die ganzen alten Bekannten wiederzusehen. Schade, dass man nur ein mal im Leben Hochzeit feiert - aber wir sehen uns spätestens Weihnachten wieder, oder?

Love,
Renee & Harm

Hat der Herr Kurth denn nun den Brautstrauss gefangen oder nicht?
Hat er denn nun die kesseste Sohle diesseits der Alpen hingelegt oder saß er ganz versonnen in der Ecke mit dem Skizzenblock in der Hand...

Mache mit im Lichtkanten-Fanclub!

Lichtkante is Love.

Was soll ich da noch sagen, außer dem üblichen "hoffentlich kann ich sowas auch irgendwann".

...Auf's Zeichnen bezogen.

Und HAH, jetzt kann ich endlich allen erzählen, dass das völlig normal ist, dass die Kreativen nicht ständig Grußkarten und Geburtstagsbilder zeichnen wollen. Ich krieg' das auch nur zu oft zu hören.
