sometimes I wonder…

sometimes I wonder, where all my creatures, flooding my drawings, come from. It´s really fun sitting down just following my intuition. With an empty mind phantasy starts to fly like a bird. The lines seem to be created by themselves in an easy and unpredictable way. The movements of my graphite pencil seem to be directed by something else, not by myself.
 

Crocodiles

Every time I went to the zoo with my father, we had to visit the crocodiles. Looking down from a small bridge, I could take a look to the back of the reptiles, frightening and fascinated at the same time. They nearly did not move and their mouth were wide open. Although getting goose bumps, I felt very close to my friends. 

When these four crocodiles appeared in my drawing, I remembered the zoo, my father and the feelings accompanying my crocodile-adventures. They got a very friendly expression now.  

Chaos Animals 11 / For Koichi

“I like chaos” – this was the main sentence of Koichi, a japanese guy, I met in Marrakesch many years ago. We shared the same hostel and hit that crazy town together. We neary could not talk with each other because of lack of language knowledge, but we became friends for a few days. When i did this drawing, suddenly I remembered him, after such a long time, and I felt sad having lost contact to him. So I decided to dedicate this drawing to him.
