Back home

I'm back from my vacation! From a relaxed and sunny Spain I returned to a cold and rainy Germany. At least these are good conditions to work on the computer. Well, If there wasn't that cold that I catched right at my first day home which is plugging up my nose right now.

But hey, there's work to do and I'm ready for the finish run. I'll pick up work on the graphic novel soon and I hope that the last 30% of the artwork will come out smoothely.

I know, I promised a lot of sketches before I left. Turned out that I mainly wrote story notes when I picked up my sketchbook in Spain. And the few sketches I actually did, all contain elements that I can't show you just yet. But I have a pencil drawing that I can show you. I drew it yesterday and it's a goody for someone who ordered a print which I was hoping to be able to dispatch before my vacation started but that didn't work out. He had to wait the three weeks before I finally was able to send out the package yesterday. I like to compensate for inconvenience of that sort and what better way is there than sending an original - and therefore unique - pencil drawing?

I don't draw a lot with pencils these days and it's really fun when there's an occasion like this. I might even create some drawings in the future and offer them on my website along with the digital prints. Man, I should stop promising stuff that I'm not sure about to happen! Well, you can always order a print and hope for me screwing up if you want to get one of these. :)

Ok, I hope for some good news on my next update.


  1. nice to see you around again! :) I hope you had a nice time in Spain, but I think you had.
    I can't wait for more updates, good luck for completing the comic!

  2. Hi Daniel,

    I've been a fan of your works for a long time and have been visiting the blog periodically. I can't wait to see more stuff from the book. You really managed to capture that magical feel of the childhood in your drawings.
    Good luck and hope you have a big success with the book!!
    All the best from

  3. Yaay, you're back! The change of weather must have been depressing but yeah, you're less likely to spend a day outside haha

    And might I say, Jimmy sure is lucky *A*
