I've realized I had never posted the photos of my last visit at the Zoo in Amneville (France). I've got a couple more, so watch out. ;)

Yet another bad copy of my birds...

Journal Entry: Sun May 23, 2010, 9:35 AM


...this is soooooo creative creative: fav.me/d2q6dqj
Actually it's not a bad copy, it's a rip, as he/she didn't really change a lot. It's so annoying.
Those birds are everywhere. Great, if I people would ask me before they just use it for their Websites or whatever.

//Edit: That was quick. He already took down the "artwork". Good decision. :) I'm pretty sure that's not the only rip in his gallery though, he has many comments "hidden by owner". ^^

Hi guys,

I'm so happy to finally announce the launch of my brandnew blog & portfolio Nicole Bauer.com!

So here is what I've worked on for over a year...actually that's a shame, but I just didn't have the time to continuously work on it and Wordpress was quite a challenge for me.

When I decided to redesign NicoleBauer.com I wanted something completely new, something I can update easily, write a Blog etc. So of course Wordpress was the number one choice. BUT I had never done anything with Wordpress before, so I had a lot of learning to do before I could get started.

This site is far from being "final", my code is a bit of a mess, because I've changed it over and over, the performance could be better and there are so many cool things on my list I wanted to add, but I just had to get something online in order to have the motivation to keep working on it.

I've paid a lot of attention to detail like the apple that you can find everywhere: it's my favorite necklace that my boyfriend bought me in France a few years ago, it was cheap and looks completely nagged by now, but I love it and still wear it a lot so I thought this would be a good logo for the site.

The desk looks like my desk at home, the plant is my office plant Henry, my IPod (which is broken), my Miu Miu glasses (I actually wear all the time, I'm nearly blind without it :)), my Laptop…well ok, I don't really use my laptop a lot, but it looked better than a normal PC. :) Oh, and there's the Starbucks cup I bought in Paris – I use it every day in the office, love Starbucks! If you scroll down to the bottom you can see one of my favorite Handbags from Kipling which inspired me for the color combination red and purple for the site.

I hope you'll all like it!

Cheers,
Nicole

My new wallpaper "Hurry up, Rudolph!" has been featured in Smashing Magazine: www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/… :w00t:

Aaaaand, the birds are still on their way, but will arrive at DA at the end of the week. I think I'll call them Pipita & Milo (thanks pica-ae and Aimae87 :hug:).

I'm also working on a flyer for a friend and I have to bake tons of christmas cookies for all my friends and colleagues,  so I didn't have any time lately to work on my website that is supposed to go live in december. :omg:

Btw: Now that I'm finally starting to like Twitter, check out my (not yet branded) Twitter account: twitter.com/nicolebauer and post links to your Twitter here! I need some friends! :nod:

And for the record: I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

I finally found the time to create a new birdies wallpaper. This time a special easter edition.



I know the punchline is not too easy to find this time, but it doesn't always have to be so obvious, right? ;)

I already have an idea for the summer edition, but I really need names for the two...any ideas?

  • Listening to: Air Traffic - Never should have told me her name
Today I got a note from someone asking if he can use one of my artworks as a cover for his band's CD. He wrote me that he found the image on some other site and had a hard time finding me because there was no credit. Well, unfortunately nothing unusual, but when I googled "maquita" and had a look at the image search I was shocked how many sites use my images without ever asking me if that's ok.
Sometimes I wonder if people really don't know that they can't just use other people's work for anything they want, or if they just don't give a shit...

Actually I don't really care, as long as these people don't make money with my stuff. But still it kinda bothers me when someone uses my art to create some ugly blog theme or whatever and then gets all the praise for the great work. Haha...

But maybe I should just take it as a compliment?!

Yes, I'm a little proud that my new birdies wallpaper "How do you like my new hat?" got featured in Smashing Magazine, one of my favorite online magazines. Check it out, there are other great wallpapers up this month.

In my mind I'm already working on a new wallpaper for next month...;)

Cheers,
Nicole

After a (way too long) creative break I'm finally back.

Work made me loose my creativity lately but after a very inspiring HIM Concert I just HAD to do something again...

So I hope you like my latest work, I promise you won't have to wait so long for the next one...

Cheers
Nicole

  • Listening to: Bloodhound Gang - Ralph Wiggum
Hey all,

I've just returned from my vacation in Holland. We saw the Bloodhound Gang live at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, it was fuckin hilarious!

Those guys are completely nuts but I love them! Jimmy got fat and old which is pretty cute...;)
And I realized that I bought my first Bloodhound Gang CD 10 years ago, so I guess I'm not getting younger either, but evs the Bloodhound Gang rocks!  I can't even describe how much I loved the show! Can't wait to see them in Amsterdam again soon...at least I hope so...maybe they're gonna retire soon...*lmao*

Anyways I come home from a great vacation and what do I find? 901 freakin new messages on Deviantart!
I didn't even know what was gong on until I found out that I got my second Daily Deviation for "I didn't mean you're fat"!
Thanks so much to Helewidis and FallenRox for that! And of course thanx heaps to all of you who wrote comments and downloaded the wallpaper! I really appreciate that!


Nicole

Hi everyone,

I am so in love with the tunes of Juke Kartel! You gotta check them out on MySpace.

I hated MySpace till I found out that can find a lot of awesome bands there that you usually would never get to know...

Just like Juke Kartel: they're from Australia and about to release their debut album.
