suddenly summer

for the past two weeks, the weather was rainy and cold and i couldn't sketch - did some linocuts instead - but now it's suddenly summer and i'm sketching again, despite the hay fever.

Ottenweg 33 is right under the Kreuzplatz, at the start of a nice neighborhood with lots of little houses. I would love to live there!

17/20.5.14 black marker 0.4 and Schmincke Watercolors

for the linocuts look here: https://www.facebook.com/entityillustrations

i waited with the car, until i couldn't avoid it anymore, i tought it disturbed the old house. But then again, one could argue, that the old house gets squeezed between the antenna and the car, that it is a contraposition, etc...

some random guy

a short story, i almost forgot to post:
I was sketching this random, shaby entry to a house in the Seefeld, Zürich, when a women came out, looked in her postbox, then took her smartphone out and made a picture of me. Then went away...i imagined the story she will tell her friends: "some strange guy sitting in front of my dirty, shaby entry and was sketching it?!?"
anyway: A6, black fineliner, Schmincke Watercolors, 45 minutes

there are a few (actually quite a lot) old villas in Zurich, with beautiful gardens, parcs or garden houses...

first one is the Villa Wesendonck, now a museum, and the second is a gardenhouse in the Rechberg-garden, in the middle of the city

first one is 21x15 cm, second is 14x9 cm
as usual, black fineliner and Schmincke Watercolors

I started this one ca. two weeks ago, but only a few strokes. Since then it was rainig...
a lovely little gardenhouse. The Rechberggarten is a wonderful parc close to the university, so it's perfect to make a break.
