I think I watched too much TV last weekend and didn’t do anything useful. On the other side, this waste of time usually gives me a push for the upcoming week. So in the end, it may not be so meaningless…
When I start to create a new piece and get into a flow with my drawing, I hardly can stop. The time goes by very fast and it feels like an obsession to finish it. At the same time it has a meditating effect. I become calm and forget everything around me. Weather obsession or meditation: After drawing, I always feel better. I think everyone who likes to draw, feels much the same.
Ukraine, Syria, Isil, German arms exports, Mali, Paris… The news are full of explosive, disturbing and worrying information these days.
I had this picture in my mind when I saw the documentary “Inside Job”. It takes a closer look at what brought about the financial meltdown. In the end it was just greed. A great film you might want to check out and get an authentic insight into the system of the wall street.
The daily shocking news about conflicts and wars all around the world based on differences in religion, opinions, skin color, sex, family background, social or economic status, language and birth of nationality made me do this.
I think Whatsapp is a great invention to connect and share. I use it every day. Check marks tell you, if your message has been sent and read by the receiver. However, sometimes these marks put some pressure and force you to answer asap, because you know the other person is waiting for you to write back.
In our digital age of social networks, Playstation 4 and various TV and talent shows, I often get lost while using these media. Time goes by so fast and when I finally switch off it feels like reality slipped through my fingers in the last couple of hours.
I am living in a beautiful area in Bielefeld, a small town in North-West Germany. Here you can find a lot of nature, green landscapes, quietness and harmony. But the internet speed just sucks!
Do you also have your smartphone or iPad within reach when you go to sleep? I do and I think it’s really a bad habit I should get rid of. Even though all devices are switched to silent, I still catch myself grabbing my phone and checking out what’s happening out there. And suddenly it’s 1am…
I think everybody knows this phone-call-phenomenon.
I had this picture in my mind when I saw the disturbing German movie »Homevideo«, where some bullies post an embarrassing video of a shy and sensitive boy on the Internet. This results in unstoppable waves of virtual insults, threats and a very tragic ending.
