Finishing touches on one part of many. Looking forward to it all coming together as one huge #woodcut … the end is near.

Working on some larger planks this sunday. Woodcut preparation for multiple layers requires a lot of planning ahead… no problem when accompanied by the #silversurfer …

It’s gonna be a  #bear. On a #tricyle . Carving (what feels like) 50.000 tiny hairs … on a hot summer day.

Dear friends, 

my personal social media consultant recently informed me that it may be of benefit for my career as an artist if I’d consider posting more regularly to my various online profiles again, as I have been in dire neglect of these channels of shameless self promotion lately. 

In my defense: I have been (and still are) extremely busy with work, mostly in the studio, applying and exploring new and extended craft and techniques to a fresh line of artwork, to be shown during my heavy schedule of 2014 shows beginning in August, and I am also working on some great projects (including exciting new heliumcowboy stuff) that simply keep me away from continously showing off.

I am still here. No worries. But real life simply is so much bigger.
