Just finished an illustration commission which lasted months, and I had
the need to go outside and work again from life. The weather is still
wonderful, the zoo was full of visitors, and I used the chance to do my
best despite the repeated wasp attacks.
After weeks of snowfalls, stormy winds and darkness the sun is back! It was a sunny but a very cold day today, with temperatures below and around zero..
At least there was no wind at all, such a peaceful feeling! I couldn´t miss the chanec to go back to the Park to look after the Owls. I saw at least four and managed to sketch two of them. On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...
Since I haven`t the time to go outdoors at the moment,I decided to upload some of my latest illustration work. In this case, an exciting project, about endangered or even extinct animals, which is going to be published as a book very soon.
I`ve been invited to be part of this and feel extremely honoured to be able to provide four images for this unique project as one of more than 50 talented artists from all over the world.
