Sun is still busy with unwrapping tons of presents. Little spoiled sun as usual. Happy Boxing day!

Puh, this week is done, advent weekend you may come. I will try to rest a bit this weekend and get back in a christmas mood. Thanks to Emma I'm listening to this nice christmas playlist right now. I had to share it. Wish you all a happy weekend!

I did this illustration last year and since then it made a little journey. First it has been a draft for last year's advent calendar, but didn't make it to the final front. Instead I posted it here last christmas and now inkognito sells it on cards (unfortunately with a type they set without me knowing it and of which I'm not really fond of). But nevertheless, I'm happy about its journey and the final outcome. One can buy normal postcards at inkognito or folded greeting cards at SOS Kinderdörfer.

A quick snowflake I made, while I should do something else. I would like to sleep under a snow blanket too, like all the bushes, fences, roofs and trees do. I imagine it warm and calm and very peaceful. I could collect my thoughts.

I discovered two more advent calendars on the web, that are beautiful. One is by Hanna Konola and the other by Thereza Rowe.

Weimar is back in its winter wonderland dress. Rosy-cheeked people. Christmas markets. Strolls in the park and a chai tea afterwards. So beautiful.

After seeing this I even more want an ipad. Oliver Jeffers' new children book app looks so nice.

*tadaaa* Our advent calendar is back, freshly printed as a 2-color-offset and made by 16 illustrators from Weimar. 24 days and 24 well hidden illustrations. So it's a nice surprise when one has to pick up a scissor every day to cut open the folded page and then to see what picture is inside.

Und wer in Weimar ist: Erhältlich ist er in Weimar im schauschau, im Bauhaus.Atelier und der Eckermann-Buchhandlung oder kontaktiert mich direkt.

Edit: Now available at Dawanda too!

When I saw this leaf on the pavement, my mind needed some seconds till it fully comprehended how perfectly coloured the leaf was. So I had to go back and pick it up, couldn't leave it there. I did some patterns instead and it works perfectly. If I would have some »Mr. Leaf of the Year« Competition going one, this leaf would probably win.

Oh, noooo, Paul is dead!! They found him this morning, floating lifeless in his tank. It's said, he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Bye Paul!

*YEEEAH* Some weeks ago I took part in »Billes Bilderbingo«, a weekly give-away by Sybille Hein, one of my favourite illustrators. And you know what?!! I won!!!! Just got this awesome package in my mail with an original illustration by her. The last time I won something I was nine. It was a drawing competition held by IKEA. The price was an awesome wrist watch, where the second hand was a bear in a little red plane that rotated clockwise all the time.
