Troma

I already told you that I was planning to do some video stuff. I experimented a lot and have now two short projects in the making (well, in two weeks when my duties regarding the University are through anyway). In addition to that I did a lot of research regarding independent movie making and read a book I wanted to read for quite a while now: “MakeYour Own Damn Movie” by Lloyd Kaufman. While I don’t think most of what he writes is particularly good advice, I recommend this book for anyone who is even remotely interested in making movies (and can stomach the gross details). The guy is hilarious and if nothing else it will definitely prepare you for what idiots you’re going to have to work with if you’re not willing to pay for your crew and actors. If you’re not quite sure if that’s for you, I suggest you head over to Troma on Youtube where they made some of their movies available for free. I say watch one of the behind the scenes documentarys like “Poultry in Motion” or “Farts of Darkness” and see what kind of weirdos an independent movie production can attract…

Lost connection

I’m sorry you didn’t get to see new daily pictures for the last few days but I had some problems with my internet connection. In the meantime I got some more writing done and started yet another new project. I’ll be sure to keep you informed when things get done around here :)

That’s all for now.

Friends

In the last weeks I helped with the creation of two websites my friends came up with, so obviously I want you to have a look. They’re both in german language.

www.howtosax.com     is for all of you who always wanted to learn how to play the saxophone. I also got a shirt with the HowToSax logo in my shop.

www.hassprophet.de     is all about choleric entertainment. You know, because the world sucks. Especially people :)

Have fun, guys!

Hawaii Madness

I’ve been kinda busy lately. You might have noticed, since there has not been a whole lot of posts. I tried to cover the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here on the site but it was seriously the lamest parade I’ve ever seen. The internet told me it was the biggest parade of its kind in continental Europe. If that’s the case then I pity the poor Irish that live in continental Europe.

Anyway, I’m still busy but now in a much more positive way. I’m drawing and writing like crazy, but since the past has tought me that my projects tend to have a radical decline in progress whenever I start telling people about them I will stop for now and leave you with this teaser picture.

See you soon!

Store revolution

The new shirts are here! And the bags!

I spent some time with the spreadshirt product palette and decided that people need bags with my stuff on them. Right now I’m looking into some more things I could do but am not quite sure yet. If there’s anything else you’d like my designs on feel free to E-Mail me!

Update:

After a short discussion with a friend we decided to add hoodies.

Random fun

I don’t have much to say today, I just wanted to share a few pics of the past two weeks.

I simply couldn't resist

Forming a Team

I’ve had my new lens for about a week now and due to the great weather I was able to go out shooting almost every day. I hope it stays this way (I told you before how much I hate winter). Saturday I also had the oportunity to have a friend tag along with his camera. I always thought it would be great to do the whole “Back of Munich” thing as a team effort not only because of the additional set of eyes but also the added flexibility and not least the help you can provide each other. It’s wonderful not having to change your lens when you’re out in the field but instead just tell your colleague what to shoot. Also it gives me the chance to appear on some of the pictures. As somebody obsessing over privacy issues I had to think about that hard but I think it’s time you get to see me…
