Swing in Wiesbaden

I love swing music and many of my friends are Lindy Hop dancers. I made illustrations for various swing events.The most current ones are taking place in Wiesbaden this month:
The "decanDance Ballroom" and the "Walhalla Hot Club"

Maybe you have seen the posters or heard about the parties. Feel free to join us to "cut a rug."
Of course I will be there too. :-)

Unpublished Illustration: King Kong climbs the Marktkirche

This actually was a version of the Sensor "Cinema" Cover (see the last post) that has not been published.
I quite like it because of the "Old Hollywood" vibes. The border between B-Movies and Blockbusters can be quite thin at times. ;-)

Sensor Wiesbaden Cover "Filmstadt zwischen Hoffnung und Abgesang"

If you live in Wiesbaden chances are high that you have already seen some of my artworks. Reason one is the "SENSOR Magazin" which can be found in almost every bar, store, barber shop and café all over the town. For the february issue I made a cover illustration with a "cinema" theme. My idea was to include the "Maschinenmensch" character from Fritz Langs "Metropolis" since the restorations of the long lost parts where done in Wiesbaden. The Murnau Stiftung has a huge archive of german movies starting at the silent era. To build a bridge to modern trends I made up a 3D version with the typical 3D glasses. I was delighted when I found a picture on their page with the audience in the "Murnau Filmtheater" wearing 3D glasses and holding the magazines with my cover. Thank you, Sensor.
