What for is a happening?

With the idea of hosting a happening i intended to combine a houseparty (with only a few people, maybe 15-20) with creation. I’d like to give space for enjoying the day or the weekend with other people that have simmilar interests and to use the time to work, experiment or/ and talk together and with one another.

To create a design that fits different mediums we had the chance to choose an event ourself.

A fair, a fashionshow, the opening of a restaurant and a party as part of an exhibition opening came to my mind in the very beginning. Later on while being busy working on my last illustration and talking about this assignment with a good friend Read more →

@ βœ„βœ„βœ„


As a prelude to the self-portrait exercise, we partnered up and did a quick sketch of our partners. It’s been a while since I drew analog so this was a great activity to get things started πŸ™‚ I think that doing everything digitally (and also the undo/redo key) has made my working style even messier and I Read more →

The egg earring was too overpowering in proportion to the Read more →
