Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you Natascha

I´m going to frame your lovely picture!


Dear Santa,

my name is Lucy Cow. I have been living at a farmershouse near Munich for almost ten years. My employer´s name is Mr. Müller and I´m mainly working for the milk production. As I´m interessted in changing my current work situation, I would like to apply for the job as gift-transporter during christmas time.
I am very motivated and I love to work in a team. Besides I am very healthy and I don´t mind the cold. I am in a good shape and fit in every standardized chimney. My friends tell that I have a very good sense of direction. I have grown up with three little farmer´s children, that´s why I´m a born teacher.
I wishfully hope that you have a job offer for me and I´m looking forward to your answer.

Lucy Cow.

P.S. I´ve put a picture of me in the envelope

First I want to apologize that I haven´t written any comments for weeks ... but I´m going to catch up on later. I´m almost ready with my job I was working on and I hope I´ll still have the time to draw some christmas cards or tags.

Plans: I want to make some new felt characters. I haven`t sewn since christmas - I hope I haven´t forgotten how to do it - and I intent to renew my website and to have an etsy-shop. We´ll see.

Besides: I had a lot of fun with my old schoolmates Silli, Melli and Kerstin (we baked christmas cookies together). And I enjoyed teaching. I gave lessons to children (at a age of 6-10) and (that´s new) young adults that want to study graphic design/illustration ...

And I´m looking forward to ice-skating. Best wishes to all! Anja.

Ausstellungseröffnung 05. Oktober 2007

Here are some pictures (of my vernissage) taken by my friend Frauke and Papa. It was a nice evening and thanks to all for visiting.

Last weeks I had a cold and didn´t feel very good. That´s why I wasn´t in the mood to take part in IF... or to post. At the moment I´m working at a brandnew job. A job that is fun but also takes a lot of time. So I´m not sure if I have enough time or the power to draw christmas cards etc... Anyway I have some ideas in my head and I want to sew (again) some creatures.

Well, we´ll see. Best wishes to all! Anja.

A young guy called Herbert Fix has invented a time machine.
And my vernissage is taking place tomorrow evening. I´m quite exited about it.

Blumenbild 2

Last week I painted two new pictures. I´ve painted the right one on canvas. The left one on canvas board in order to frame it. So, I guess, it fits together with the work below (I´m working for an exhibition). And at the moment I´m illustrating christmas cards.

Sommerpause/summer break

Almost one year ago I started posting on this blog. I guess it was a good idea and it has been very nice to have some friends all over the world that share the same passion I do. Besides visiting your blogs always gave me so much inspiration.

Well, it is summer (although it is raining the whole time) and I do need a break and time for myself. I would like to have a look at my work from a distance and to think over it. Am I satisfied with it? Do I want to continue in the same direction? Or is it time for a change? I don´t know... I´m sure I will find out. I feel a little bit exhausted, but also very excited.

Anyway, I wish you all a great summertime. Have a lot of fun and enjoy it. Thanks for visiting and for the lovely comments. See you back in august/september.

Love Anja.

Franz Josef Tripp

Yesterday we visited an exhibition in Aalen. We´ve seen wonderful drawings of illustrator Franz Josef Tripp. He illustrated the books "Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotovführer" (Michael Ende) 1960, "Räuber Hotzenplotz" and "Das kleine Gespenst" (Ottfried Preußler) 1967.
