I’ve spent a day in Hamburg, strolling around »Hafencity« with its newly built parts and restored historic old warehouses. One of them houses the Maritime Museum (Maritimes Museum), which is absolutely worth a visit.

The »Museum für Kunst und Handwerk« displays collections of Graphic Art, Poster, Photography and New Media, Design, Fashion, Musical Instruments and Ceramics. I’ve came for the »Christoph Niemann«-exhibition and had a glimpse look into the design section, where a visitor should, in any case, step into the psychedelic »Spiegel«-canteen by Werner Panton from the 1960s ...

Rattle and Hum

During our Rhein-Main-sketchers meeting we visited the exihibition of Kai Wolf – an artist who creates cinetic objects. The room was embedded in a soundscape of tick-tacks, click-clacks – a fantastically rattle and hum.

Sketchcrawl Eltville, 30.05.2015

Sketchcrawl of the Rhein-Main Sketchers in the picturesque town (maybe a bit too picturesque?) of Eltville at the Rhine river.


Knocked out by a flue, but nevertheless impressed by this great city... Short sketch before leaving to the airport.

Sketchcrawl Palmengarten Frankfurt

Meeting with the »Rhein Main sketchers« – Birgit, Clara, Katja and others. A very cold, almost winterly day in March inside and outside the »Palmengarten« in Frankfurt.

Haute Savoie, St Ferréol

Some fine last days of summer in the French Alps: lovely people, impressive landscape, El Dorado for cyclists and climbers, a shame that I didn´t take french classes back in school... old greek instead - imagine!
