Thank you for your interest up to now!
I am a communication designer and a teacher living in Wuppertal, Germany. This blog features the day to day sketching that I practice. For me, drawing is a method of knowledge gain. While always sketching on site I try to capture the particular atmosphere. Because things must often go quickly, I draw preferably in one go, directly with permanent media like ink or watercolour. In doing so there’s hardly room for correction. Yet that is what makes spontaneous sketching appealing to me. Therefore, my sketchbooks contain more and less good results in a visual context. I keep these sketches all – also the ones that didn’t turn out that well. That helps me to document my progression. And I hope this will encourage others to pick up a drawing tool and a sketchbook again.
