Another Owl

By in artwork


This is another experiment with polymer clay. About 4 fingerwidths high, painted with acylics. Next time I will try concave eyes instead of his bulging ones here. What do you think?

A Little Help needed to win the A Little Help Project

By in announcements

The Hypnowl on the A Little Help Project
Great stuff: Before I even started working on the Hypnowl Empire (my upcoming t-shirt label – haven’t I told you about it?), I applied for AS Colour’s A Little Help Project. The Kiwi T-shirt makers are giving away a start up package worth $10,000 to the most popular t-shirt design as determined by Facebook-likes and sales in their retail shops in Auckland, Wellington and Sydney.

A jury of jet set t-shirt people picked the top 10 entries out of a whole heap of submissions, now it’s up to the people to vote the best. If you want to help me win the thing, there’s a lot you can do with ridiculously little effort:

  1. Like the design on the Little Help Project’s home page
  2. Like the design on AS Colour’s Facebook page
  3. Buy the shirt in AS Colour’s retail stores in Auckland, Wellington or Sydney or online (soon). Preorders can be placed here: dan@ascolour.co.nz

    I’ll keep you posted!

Weekend Project: The Quest

By in artwork

The Quest

After several months I again had the time to make a little weekend project. No plan, no concept, just experimenting. Now that I think about it I might make a book out of it. What do you think?

Oh, and it’s also available as a print and more on Society6

Hello Hallo Guten Tag

By in misc

Once in a while I send out promo postcards to potential clients. Most of the writing on them is printed, but I illustrate the greeting and the address by hand, which is also a sort of creative exercise. I actually like the address illustrations a tad better, but it would be awkward to publish my mailing list, so I hope I get hired by loads of them, so I can publish their designs. HELLO!

P.S. If you’re an agency, magazine, company or other that would like to receive my promo mailers in the future, just leave a comment or contact me at heiko at heikowindisch.com!

Hypnowl Empire coming soon!

By in announcements

If you’ve met me or had a chat with me in any way during the last months I might have told you that I’m planning on starting a t-shirt label. Well, I still am, it’s going to be called Hypnowl Empire, and while it still hasn’t launched you can sign up for the newsletter here, where you’ll get news, updates and early subscriber specials. It’ll be exciting!
