Here you see two preparatory designs i did, to study colors, shadow and Basic forms of a house in the countryside. In fact i made it for the set design of a childrens theatre Play called "HOTZENPLOTZ". Later on the stage director and me decided to keep it very simple and graphic and just with black and White and NO Colors at all... i will soon Show all about the final theatre set design - but here first Grandma's Hillbilly Hut - acrylics, ink and Crayon on canvas. size is about 24 x 18 cm.

Chris Blackmoore from Holy Smokes records in Glasgow/Scotland approached me to do a poster for his HOLY SMOKIN SWAMP BOOGIE. i knew i finally can do a drawing of a crocodile again - since i really love to draw these creatures. i suggested to do a poster that is Long in size, in fact, one din-A size cut in half, so that a crocodile can use the whole space. i painted it with black and White ink on cardboard and did the coloration with acrylics. the best Thing: the crocodile is SOLD and found a new home! SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
