Jonas and Dieter are pirates. Very romantic pirates.
Dieter once fell in love with a catfish named Molly. But Molly moved away, or disappeared (we don’t know). Since then, he and his buddy Jonas have been roaming the waters on a mission to find Dieter’s Pretty Kitty.
This is Rüdiger snowshoeing on his day off.
Rüdiger is red and holds a great job with lots of responsibility in a traffic light. His intersection is used by a lot of people every day. Rüdiger takes quite some pride in letting them know when it isn’t so good to cross the road.
Well, today, I might be stretching it – but I couldn’t resist after I had met Rüdiger this morning, crossing the street on the way to the pool.
The long weekend is over (it was great, thanks to my good friend and fellow graphic designer Beate Wichmann) and it is time to post today’s character:
Hasim owns a little shoe shop in the souk in Marrakech. He loves numbers and sweet tea and knows everything and more about all his neighbours.
When he was only four years old, he was already able to do the math for his Grandfather and draw an auto bus from memory.
It has been 3 weeks of the Character Development Challenge – yeah!
I find it interesting to see how I switched from just posting a rough idea for a character to wanting to post a more refined version lately.
I have been enjoying the process a lot and am already thinking about a new challenge after this one!
Today’s characters are the group of little Tweeties.
They are a cocky flock of little trouble makers that are suffering quite a bit from looking very much alike.
And since the season is kinda demanding it – I have to add the following….
Yesterday’s character was Ms Flavia de Luce (also in the picture her bike Gladys). I like that Flavia names her vehicles – I do that, too. The car I am driving at the moment is named whale, the last one was Lotta and I own two bikes, named Wheely and Dafodile.
The creator of Flavia, Gladys and the series of great murder mysteries they are starring in is Alan Bradley – a Canadian. I can’t wait for the next book to come out in 2013, when I will finally get to spend some more time with the very witty and British Flavia and her friends!
Today’s character is my own creation:
It’s Little Mammoth.
Little Mammoth is really slow. His bones are creaking and moaning.
Therefore everything Little Mammoth does, takes a little bit longer.
I might have come up with Little Mammoth now, because today I am feeling just like him…
Something different today…
Ginger is a student of design – and she is a little tired. As a scholar in the creative field, staying up all night, working on just anything remotely related to creation, is seen as a sign of future genius.
Ginger has just printed out her newest night shift creation – a splendid piece of typographic work – and is on her way to school.
Today was the last day of my visit to Alberta.
I checked out Calgary’s centre this morning and saw lots of men in suits (many with ugly neck ties). It could be that all the testosterone was inspiring today’s characters – although I ended up drawing men with boots, not suits.
Does anybody have any ideas for names and stories accompanying these images? My brain is blank…
On the weekend I went camping with friends in the Rockies. We were looking for bears, but didn’t get to see any (which I think was a good thing).
Although in the city (Calgary) today, I kept thinking about bears. Therefore…
…meet Albert from Alberta today!
Albert is a tired Grozzly Bear. Yes, you are reading correctly: Albert is a Grozzly.
Grozzly Bears are rarely seen. They hide better than their relatives the Grizzlies. The reason for this is that they can become see-through. Even eager tourists won’t become aware of the presence of this kind of bear – not even when he is sitting right next to them on a rock, while they are having their lunches at the creek.
Below two very special images with Albert from Alberta visible.
This is how some of my bear hunting journey looked like…
