My webcomic is online

By | News

And we are live! I’m so happy to present you with the first pages of my webcomic Last thoughts of a dead man, a project that has accompanied for quite a few years and has finally come to life.

Read the first two pages on Tapas. A new page will be released every Wednesday from now on. Never miss an update by subscribing on Tapas or checking my social media channels.

If you enjoy the comic, support me with a coffee. That would help me make more art and comics. Thanks a lot for your support ♥

Once the story is completed, I’ll write up an extensive Making of to show you the process of making the comic and what I’ve learned by committing to such a long term project.

workshop drawing plants hamburg

Workshop: Drawing plants with coloured pencils, Hamburg

By | Workshop

Last Saturday I attended the workshop „Drawing plants with coloured pencils“ held by Elke Hanisch. The workshop took place in a very cozy location in Hamburg St.Pauli, which I already knew from Chris Campe’s Lettering workshop last year. She was also the one who invited Elke to give this workshop. I’ve found Elke’s wonderful botanical drawings through Chris Campe’s Instagram account and was enchanted right away. So it was a no-brainer that I booked a spot when a workshop in Hamburg was announced. It has been a while since I’ve done studies of plants and flowers and I was eager to learn more about coloured pencils as a drawing medium.

By | 52 Weeks of Lettering

Tomorrow the year will end already. And like every year it passed way too quickly. A lot has happened the last 12 months. The move to a new city and starting my freelance career have been the most exciting events this year. I have learned a lot and met interesting new people. 2016 hasn’t been boring at all.

With a new year coming up shortly it’s time to make New Year’s resolutions and plans for the upcoming year.

52 WoL – Week 51: Merry Christmas

By | 52 Weeks of Lettering

It’s the most wonderful and for a lot of people the most stressful time of the year: Christmas. Maybe your tree is already decorated or your have to do some last minute christmas shopping. Whatever you still need to do, I wish you a lot of patience and serenity for the tasks.

I’ll be driving home to my family for Christmas today. Something I’ve been looking forward a lot in the past weeks. Decorating the tree, a family dinner and cozyness included.

However you’ll spend your Christmas days, I wish you a wonderful time with the people who you love and that matter most to you.

Merry Christmas,
Meike

52 WoL – Week 49: There’s only one way, your way.

By | 52 Weeks of Lettering

To enter unknown territory is a unique challenge. Uncertainty creeps into our heads and of course we’re looking towards people, who have gone before us on the path we want to take to avoid their mistakes. That’s absolutely normal and useful. But after a while we need to find our own way to get to our destination or we end up as imitators of our idols. Because we learn mainly by copying.

Gib niemals auf

52 WoL – Week 48: Never give up!

By | 52 Weeks of Lettering

The end of the year approaches rapidly. You have achieved more than you might think. Walked on new paths, have grown with your challenges and overcame some obstacles and failures.

Even if the situation may look dreadful right now, don’t give up. Don’t let your dreams get destroyed by naysayers and narrow-minded people. You can achieve anything, you’ve set your mind to. Maybe not today or tomorrow but in the long run.

Never give up!
