90 candles and an owl. Today is my grandpa's 90th birthday!! I'm sooo happy he's still around and we can celebrate this awesome anniversary. I did the illustration above for his birthday card. The owl stands for his profession as a journalist of the East-German satirical magazine »Eulenspiegel«. This magazine often used the owl as an emblem. My grandfather was the deputy chief editor there and when I was a child I always scrolled through magazines and books that laid around in his work room. They were filled with tons of cartoons and illustrations. So, it‘s probably his fault that I became an illustrator ;)
Alles Gute, Opa!!!
