...well, almost.

Hello everybody,

while I was sitting and drinking with my best friend Tom3k ( a few nights ago, he pointed out to me that I haven't been posting new stuff on dA for almost a year now... and hellyeah was he right!
12 months flew by and I don't know where they are now.

Anyway, to make a very long story short:

I took my time off, from virtually everything, started working (and living) again and finished my 2. artbook a few weeks ago.

It was a roller-coaster and a very long and intensive journey but thanks to my wife and my friends everything came to a good end.

The book is scheduled for Feb./ March 2011 and will include new art on 48 pages.
The publisher is again SQP Inc. and the book will be sold and distributed worldwide by these fine guys.
For this project, I collaborated with the best colorist I have ever worked together with: José A. Cano who might already be known by some of you by the name of jocachi (
He painted my grey world with digital color on 30 images.
Besides these 30 stunners, I have also created new photo- realistic graphite drawings for the book as well as some new sketches, studies and commission works that were done in the last 14 months.

I have uploaded 4 colored images from the book as preview for you in my gallery here.
I hope you enjoy them, I truly do.

More info will be posted as soon as I have an exact release date for the book.  

In the meantime, take care and enjoy the falling leaves.



...and last but never least:
Thank you all for your notes, comments and favs throughout the last months. It is all very appreciated!

Hey all,

I just wanted to pass you the news on what has been going on in the last weeks... or months.
Sadly, there hasn't been much drawing for me, but still a lot of good new stuff that needed to be taken care of. A lot of things to organize and some technical stuff to do. But read for yourself.

Hi there,

first of all I would like to say thanks a lot to all the visitors of my page here at dA.
It's been about 1000 clicks to this little place of mine and I am very happy to see and read that you ladies and gents really seem to enjoy my works.
Thanks also for all the nice comments, favs and notes you wrote. It's always appreciated!

So, concerning things that are ahead of us, or better, me:

Some of you might be wondering why there has been a little stop in uploading new images.
The reason for this is simple. I am currently working on new  material that will just take it's time to be presented here.
I've just been really busy since the end of last year. Trying new things, re- working stuff, thinking about new ways and concepts for my art and, which probably takes most my time, already working on my second artbook.
I am also setting up everything to present you an exclusive line of giclées and posters of my works right in time before the release of my FIRST artbook that will be published worldwide by SQP Inc. this March.

Just received 2 advance copies of the book this Monday and can only tell you that the printer did a fantastic job. The quality looks really great and I can't wait to see this baby finally being released. (btw: it's also very nicely featured in the January "Adult Previews" comics catalog. Be sure to check it out and, of course, order it. :-))

So, new drawings coming soon.

To the next 1000.
