Karlo Marx Illustration for Der Freitag

By in commissions

Karl Marx for Der Freitag

Now for something different: Der Freitag is a German newspaper from Berlin that I’ve worked with before on several occasions. Today’s issue has an illustration by me of Karl Marx. When I was asked to illustrate the article all I had was an outline of the article to be (a fictional interview with Karl Marx about today’s state of capitalism and what he would likely say about it now), but most of the time that’s all it takes. Also, I’ll grab any opportunity I’ll have to draw a bloke with a beard as magnificent as Karlo’s.

☭☭☭

Jetzt zu etwas anderem: Die heutige Ausgabe von Der Freitag (eine Wochenzeitung aus Berlin, mit der ich einige Male zuvor schon zusammen gearbeitet hatte) enthält eine Illustration von Karl Marx von mir. Als ich die Illustration anfertigte, lag mir nur eine kurze Zusammenfassung des begleitenden Artikels vor, aber das oft alles, was man braucht. Ausserdem würde ich jede Gelegenheit nutzen, einen so schönen Vollbart zu zeichnen, wie ihn Karlo dereinst besass.

Buntings on Etsy, Market Appearances, etc.!

By in announcements, merchandise, store

Bunting Set #2: Hypnosis - Full Set!

What’s up, folks?

When we went to the Village Markets the other week, several people asked about the makeshift bunting I used to decorate my gazebo. So I went home, made up two designs and put them on my Etsy store as a printable PDF. Hope you enjoy.

Bunting No.1: Beach Party on Etsy
Bunting No.2: Hypnosis on Etsy

Speaking of markets, I’ll also be at next week’s Village Markets at Burleigh Heads State School. Always happening on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the Month, the next one will be on the 18th of December – Open from 8AM to 1PM, featuring local fashion, arts and crafts. Worth a visit! More info here.

Also, if you’re in Australia, you can still take advantage of the coupon code LASTMINXMAS, that’ll get you 15% off your purchases on my Etsy store. For orders outside Australia it might be too late to arrive on time for Christmas, but you’re free to order using the coupon, too, of course!

New illustration: Unheimlich

By in artwork

Unheimlich

Unheimlich (uncanny, scary) is the new version of an older illustration of mine that I started in 2009 but abandoned somewhere along the way because I ran into a dead end with it. Last week I rediscovered it in a folder and set to refurbish it with some new critters, an experiment for the background and some colour. If you’re curious about what it looked like before, go to my flickr. It’s also available as a print on Society6, who have free shipping until Monday!

≡≡≡

“Unheimlich” ist die neue Version einer Illustration von 2009, die ich damals kurz vor dem Ziel liegengelassen hatte, weil irgendwie die Luft raus war. Letzte Woche habe ich sie dann in einem alten Ordner wiedergefunden und habe angefangen sie mit neuen Charakteren, einem Experiment für den Hintergrund und ein wenig Farbe aufzumotzen. Die Version von 2009 ist auf flickr, und die neue Illustration gibt es auf Society6 zu kaufen, wo es bis Montag auch noch kostenlosen Versand gibt!

Gift Guide 2011

By in announcements, christmas, merchandise, store

Most of the people on this globe won’t be having a roast turkey tonight, still I’m wishing everyone who does a Happy Thanksgiving! Christmas is just a month away now, so if you still have some gift shopping to do, here’s a small selection of goods with my designs on them.

In case you decide to get something from my Etsy store (would be cool!), please note that if you want to receive your goods before Christmas and are ordering from outside of Australia, I’d strongly advise you to order this or next week, since though shipments usually arrive within 14 days, they often take much longer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, though!
Also, if you use the coupon code HOLIDAYCHEER on my Etsy, it’ll get you 10% off your order!

1) Limited Glow-in-the-dark Screen Print from Print Club London £40.00
2) Bamboo iPhone Case (iPhone 4 & 4S) from Grove from $89
3) 2012 One Sheet Wall calendar in 4 Colours on Etsy $5
4) 2012 Wall Calendar: Animals & Vehicles $15
5) The Hypnowl Council T-Shirt in Etsy $25
6) The Icecreamator Giclée Art Print $30
7) Techno Santa Christmas Card on Etsy $5
8) Extinction Women’s T-Shirt on Society6 $18
9) Set of 4 Postcards on Etsy $5
10) Styx Art Print on Thumbtack Press from $19.99

Auch wenn Ihr wahrscheinlich kein Thanksgiving feiert, wünsche ich doch ein herzliches Erntedankfest allen Damen und Herren Lesern! Weihnachten ist jetzt auch nur noch einen Monat entfernt – falls ihr noch einige Geschenke zu besorgen habt, gibt es oben eine kleine Auswahl an Waren mit meinen Designs.

Falls ihr vorhabt, etwas aus meinem Etsy-Laden zu kaufen, hier noch ein Hinweis: Die Sendezeiten von Australien aus in den Rest der Welt bewegen sich nach Europe zwar meist um die 14 Tage herum, manchmal kommt es jedoch auch vor, dass es sich deutlich länger hinzieht – gerade in der Vorweihnachtszeit. Falls es also vor Heiligabend ankommen soll, rate ich dazu, die Bestellung innerhalb der kommenden Woche abzugeben. Ich drücke jedenfalls die Daumen.

Mit dem Coupon-Code HOLIDAYCHEER gibt’s übrigens 10% Rabatt auf meinem Etsy-Shop. Viel Spass!

Hypnowl Shirt

Hello there! Summer is gently shuffling towards us now, with every week getting just a little bit hotter. I can’t wait for my first Christmas at the beach this year. While working towards affording the Piña Colada in my hand when it happens, I’ve got my first self-initiated shirt to share with you. It’s the Hypnowl Council design, silk screen printed on 100% pre-shrunk cotton, in a nice unisex-ish fit. You can check it out on my Etsy store. There’s also heaps of prints, new postcard sets, buttons and calendars!

Es ist das Hypnowl Council design, das euch aufmerksamen Lesern bekannt vorkommen müsste.

Etsy Round-up, Post – Finders Keepers

By in announcements, merchandise, store

Two days have passed since coming back from the Finders Keepers market in Brisbane. What a fantastic weekend it was! Loads of people came by, cosplayers walked on the other side of the road for the Supanova festival which happened at the same time; many friends came by or manned their own stalls, people said many nice things about my work and bought lots of stuff. Hope we can do it again! If you weren’t able to come, I’ve put most of the products on my Etsy, and if you’ve bought something at the markets, be sure to use your coupons at your next checkout!

Peace Bunny: New Shirt at Graniph

By in announcements, store

I love graniph. Their range is bright, colourful, wacky, postmodern, whimsical, random and funny. Just about everything I love about Japanese pop culture. And, of course, they’re always open about my bright, colourful, wacky […] ideas, which makes it so much fun to work with them. Here’s another collaboration, which is for sale on their website (and in their stores, too, I suppose): Heiko Windisch vol.02. They’ve got new t-shirt styles now, too.
