Times flies. But this is nothing new. Still I have a lot of reference pics lying on my desk waiting to be drawn. So many beautiful and interesting people I really want to draw! On the other hand, I don't have the time, unfortunately. I try to get myself inspired, visiting deviantart every day. I admire the beautiful work there, but also get frustrated that I do not submit something new of my own.
Anyway, I need to do some commissions which are still waiting. 

Take care everybody, keep up the good work!

Wow. Now it's only 5 days until christmas. This means, it's a year ago since my last entry. Last year just went so fast, I don't know where it went! I think one of the facts is that I started working full-time in a new job. It was a big challenge for me after all these years, going back to my old profession! I found a job as a graphic artist in the pre-print section of a newspaper. A very nice and interesting job. I learnt a lot of new stuff but also could use the knowledge I still have. Now, after a year, much is routine but I am still grateful I got that chance to start newly at my age!
Of course my hobbies, such as drawing, suffered. It was just so exhausting at times, and also my family had to get used to it. 
My new year's resolution is, to draw more again! The only pic I did this year was a commission for my new collegue! I hope I can post it here after I have given it to her.
I still love to visit here, adore the big talent this page reveals. 

I wish you all a great new year 2016!

Fortunately!

Yes, it's time for an update again. Christmas is long gone already. Not really any news here... I wish I had the energy to submit art. I miss it but I got too much on my plate to concentrate really. 

Take care!

Hi there!

I did it! I will attend the AECON 4 in Frankfurt with my daughter. She's a Supernatural-fan too and totally happy about it now. I'm trying to finish a portrait of Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard as I want it to be signed. I must admit, I've had a real "blockade" the last few months, I wasn't able to focus and draw a pic although I totally miss it. Does anybody know how this is? I think it's strange as drawing is a thing that usually really makes me happy. Maybe it's because life hasn't been quite nice to me and I feel incapable of managing anything.
Let's keep our fingers crossed that this will change soon! I'll keep you posted about the con!



Take care!

Hi, friends!

Lately, I have the impression nobody is reading this; though I have still the urge to update it. My Boston-trip is not forgotten, but 3 months away now and as a new year has started I have to share my new-year-wishes.
2012 was not too bad for me, as I have returned to be a working woman, which actually really improved our financial situation. But, on the other hand, I really did not draw a thing. Not one picture. I keeo collecting pics I'd really love to draw but I never start. I waste time in front of the TV but I really miss the art.
I really want to start again, now that I'm inspired from the beautiful movie "The Hobbit". I hope I manage to dive back into the relaxing situation out of time when I draw. And the feeling of enthusiasm when I've finished a pic. I didn't have any commissions, too. Strangely funny.
Well, visitin this place is still inspiring me too, and it also stunns me when I see all this talent and beautiful work.

Take care!

Hi and bye, Boston!

I've just returnes from the USA, I was in New Hampshire and Massachusetts to attend the wedding of my american Friend Robin. It was a very special event, also to come back to Boston which I really like. I also had the opportunity to see more of the city, but I unfortunately miss the MFA. One reason to come back! :)
My job is going well, I got some commissions now and then but I really lack the chances just to draw pics I like to draw. I wanted to take part at an exhibition around christmas, but I am afraid that I do not have enough new pictures to show.
But I will never give it up, I just love it too much! Recently I'm working on some illustrations for a song-book-project for a friend. Something else, and I'm looking forward to it!

Take care,
Babs

Dear friends!

2012 has come and I look back to a lot of events last year. First of all, I started to work again after being just a stay-at-home
-mom for so many years! It great fun, I love it and I also can use the money!
As for my art, I actually was really lazy and what I really want to do is a good drawing just FOR ME and not a commission! I like to do commissions but it's most of the time persons I would not choose to draw! LOL!
My daughter Jana has joined deviantart too now, she has some talent and did some good drawings, so check her out: oODiamondoO
Now for this year I'm looking forward to my second visit in the USA. My dear friend there is going to get married and I will be one of her bridesmaids which is exciting for me as we don't have this tradition in Germany. It will be in September and I can't wait!
I actually hope I can show you some new stuff soon!

Take care,
Babs

Dear friends!

Long overdue that I make a new entry. A lot has happened since the last one. I finished my course in media design and web design successfully with an A in both fields. It was a great experience and much fun to go back to school - also for my family not having me around all day. That was my summer - commuting 2 hours a day with public transport and sitting at a computer all day. But still, it was great and I also met nice people.
Now I found a job in a printing office as a media designer. It's part-time and quite close to where I live - perfect! I consider me lucky as there are not many jobs in this profession. I work for 2 months now and it's fun. Also, I also still have time for drawings, you'll see some new stuff from me soon.

Also - as I am able to now - I made a new homepage. It's on since Sunday and I'm quite proud of it. Please check it out if you like! www.portrait-ideen.de. All self-made!

I also have 3 commissons and hopefully a new experiment with acrylic colors.

Take care!
Love
Babs

Dear friends!

It's been a while that I updated my journal.
I wasn't as active as I actually wanted. Time just flies, it's unbelieveable. I wasn't successful in my jobsearch and so I decided to go back to school to update my skills. I am lucky as the job-center is paying for it!
It's taking 4 months and I hope after that I will be fit in Creative Suite and web-design. My family will have a hard time with me away all day. I hope everything will be fine. But I'm looking forward to it and I hopefully will find a job soon.
Still, I have some commissions, the dog I drew turned out quite nice and I hope I will still find time to draw pictures just for fun!

Take care!
Love
Babs

Hi, friends!

Actually, sometimes I just don't know why I write journals because I always have the feeling, nobody is reading it anyway! ;)
But I have to update now, that 2011 is almost "old" and January is fading, too.

No real news actually, I'm still on a job search and after a quiet time around christmas I have 2 new commissions and 2 pics for a present to finish. I hope I'll manage, but I'm on a good way with my first commission because the reference is so special.

Also, I eagerly need a new car so I need the money! :)

I wish you all the best!

Take care!
Love

Another year is going to end soon.
And yet, Advent-time has come, it's freezing cold with lots of snow and the christmas exhibition is coming up.
I will be part of it again and I'm looking forward to it.
I didn't finish as many pics as I wanted to but not I get some older pictures ready to show.

My football-project stuck as I was not in a very good mental mood.
I really hope this will be different next year.

Happy Advent!

Take care!

Dear friends!

Well, I was really lazy lately, but private matters kept me from drawing and updating the journal. I keep coming here every day, checking your wonderful art and try to get back on track, but right now it just doesn't seem to be possible.
I have a commission, though, a pic of Zac Efron I have to draw and for this I have to force myself, because it's important for me to keep the deadline.
In the beginning of December I will be part of the christmas exhibition in Markgröningen again, together with a friend, and though I don't have many new pics to show I'm looking forward to this event. It's always beautiful to see art in this lovely old mayor house.
I hope you're all fine, I enjoy this place! :)

Take care!

Hi, friends!

As a football-fan and the World-Cup going on, I decided to start a project I wanted to do for a long time. I love my signed pictures and so I decided to draw the entire team I support, the VfB Stuttgart. I want to start with Serdar Tasci, who also plays in the German National team. I hope to get all the drawings signed and show it in an exhibition. This should be fun! I guess this will take a while, but I will keep you updated and it's great to have a goal to be reached!

I also still have a couple of commissions to work on, which is also good, as I don't seem to be successful in finding a job. :(
So, wish me luck!!


Take care!

Dear friends!

Now, finally springtime is here and it's beautiful! I'm really inspired and I got some new commissions, which I hopefully finish before Whitsun. AND I have 24.000 pageviews! Amazing! Thanks to all who visit and watch me!
Besides that, I don't have many news. It's this page with its amazing artists that keeps me going! Thank you! :)

Hi, everybody!

As you can see on my front page, I finally received THE autograph: Gale Harold. Thanks to a good friend who was nice but persistent and made him sign the drawing. Lucky her, she saw him 3 times in the play in LA and 2 times she had the chance to talk to him! So, again, ME being stuck in good old Europe, I will never have the chance. Anyway, this autograph is as close as I can get. And I am really grateful for it.
Unfortunately, he didn't comment the drawing. I really would have liked to know if he liked it. Well, you cannot have everything, can you?!
So, I just trust the judgement of many other people who actually liked to be drawn by me. Also, I still get commissions.
My next drawing will be my niece and it will be a gift.


Take care!
Love

Hi, friends!

It's actually really really cold right now, but somehow beautiful too. I visited some concerts, David Garrett and Midge Ure. I just adore Midge! He's a wonderful musician and singer and also very down to earth. I hope he will come back so I can see him again.
Also, I'm waiting eagerly for my autographed picture of Gale Harold!!! Keep your fingers crossed for me!!! I have my sources, lol.
I still have 3 commissions to do also, if you're interested in one, just send me a note.


Take care!

Dear friends,

well, it's the middle of January and Christmas is definitely over! :)
Not many news from here. I'm busy with commissions which is a good thing because I can use the money. Also, it's a good training. The snow is gone by now but it's still very cold, also good for drawing!
Well, as I said, nothing much happened.

Take care!

Dear Friends!

I am very busy these days as people who want commissions come up with their crappy refs just last minute! :(
I always keep telling them: please the picture does not have to be large, but sharp and detailed!!! I wonder if I told this to the marines!? Anyway, I am glad I get commissions, I surely can use the money.
We have a beautiful winter-wonderland outside, a lot of snow, which is rare in this area, chilly and sunny. Very nice. I guess I have to take pictures later.
I have all my presents and I'm relaxed, the kids are excited and have their last school-days.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas, a happy New Year and a lot of inspiration to be wonderfully creative as it has been during the time I've been here.



Love,
Babs
