Mikrokosmos 2 ⋅ 2nd preview ⋅

september 2011
.............................................................................................................................

I just finished editing the new Mikrokosmos books, they're now in print at Treu Arti Grafiche in Italy.

The new booklets circle around ambitious themes like Western literature classics, Asian poetry and Swedish party holidays in a VW 'Bulli'. This last book's something like a drawn roadtrip by Michael Zander.

Greetings from Rothenburg ob der Tauber

I spend a few days seeing a friend, walking in the Tauber valley and crossing the vineyards near Würzburg.

It's such a fine feeling to be on the road again. I'd like to travel much more than work allows me.

Best regards, Boris

I think the coolest monster creations I've seen so far are the ones by Ray Harryhausen.

The big part of work is done. It should be ready in a few months.

New magazine illustrations for stories by Claude Raucy. I'm currently trying to get together the linework from my artistic work with an imagery that is suitable for young readers.

Friendly Dragons

The collection of monsters is growing, at the moment inspiration is coming from old prints - tatzlwurms, harpyies and galleytrots.

I'm thinking about taking a look at classical movie monsters. I don't like Godzilla and his equals, but it would be a nice challenge to make a humoristic interpretation.

Some new drawings for a humoristic book about occultism, ill will and strange creatures include this fellow:

 

Historians assume that elephant skulls could be at the origin of the cyclops legend. These skulls have a hole in the front, at the place of the trunk (elephant nose). Due to a lack of anatomy knowledge, this hole was maybe interpreted as cavity of the eye...
