Another model built alongside the spirit of marchikoma.
Marchi’koma is a great possibility to flex one’s building muscles with GitS inspired robots. Since this is right up my alley, I churned out a few models.
A small robot with character with minimum parts in company of a anime-styled minifigure is ‘Tiny T’.
Two robots drawing inspiration from a spider and a crab, ‘Pain + Killer’, feature a heavy utilitarian and military look. Initially they were designed for a commission, but turned out a tad too large.
The largest in this run is the ‘Old V.I.C.’, a mixture of victorian steampunk, robot tech and microscale with a dash of Howl’s moving castle. The frame is based upon the same one as the D.A.Z. FS359i. This fella will probably be part of a larger diorama I am working on for ages.
In sprit of the actual expedition and landing on Mars. Also FebROVERy ignited my creative engines.
Large inspiration taken from Igor Sobolevskys amazing Mars 9 Rover concept:
This fella took me ages, The sketch was on my desk for half a year or more before I managed to finally pull it off.
Here’s an interactive 360° model for your viewing pleasure:
Enough talk, here’s the full gallery:
After sitting long time on my desk with several photo sessions, finally I managed to finish off this project which developed alongside a workshop for a libary.
There is real braille included, merging the visual and haptic approach and serving as the transition for the sculptural growth out of the pages/story of the book. The sculptural part itself also consists of threedimensional letters offering another visual/haptic fusion.
Alternative titles are ‘string theory’ and ‘haptic sensation’.
Trotz der pandemischen Umstände kann eine Reihe von Workshops, vor Ort und online, mit ambitionierten Projektpartnern angeboten werden.
Dazu ist die Übersichtsliste aktualisiert worden. Dort sind nun alle Workshops bis Ende 2020 aufgelistet. Zusätzlich ist die Liste mit einem neuen und vor allem übersichtlichen Design überarbeitet worden. Interesse?

Despite the pandemic issues, there are a some workshops ahead, including online seminars. The list has been updated and also the design of the overview has been revised and made more visually appealing.
A few months ago, Elspeth from New Elementary asked me to play around with a few new Lego Sets from the dots series, namely the bracelets.
There are a bunch of results, which will be showcased time by time where this post will be constantly updated.
For starters there are the interwoving bracelets which give a nice irregular and organic base.
Some applications of this technique – the viruses are here!
Here are three connected bracelets forming an endless stream. This never went beyond WIP.
Three colourful fellas from the sea.
And finally some sketches inspired by and with the (mostly printed) tiles from those sets.
Back to space-ics
You know, sometimes you build something to a certain extent and that you cannot finish it somehow. Then it lays around for some time, you look at it several times and eventually the final direction comes to shape so you manage to finish it off – this is exactly one of those creations! If there is an existing design or a synopsis of a few designs there is a clear path to follow, but creating a new original design is just different.
BTW there are a whole load of this kind of projects spread across my creative lab.
I fiddled around with the large flat curvy panels and my limited parts available in dark tan. It happened that this insect-shell like design came out. My love for the small flags urged me to look how I could add them and the overall design was born.
The build is based upon the traditional Vic Viper wing-layout – two prongs, two rear-sided wings and a tailfin.
It has space for a small minifigure, being positioned up side down – as this matters in space LOL
Therefore the the underside become also a legit upperside.
A friend pointed out the view from the top and bottom being nice stand alone images, so the masks had a spin-off.
Long talk, here’s the full show, enjoy!
Presenting a small series of spray can characters I built over the last few months.
They’re all in midi scale compared to the 1:1 Inside the Spraycan series. Further down you can find the single interpretations.
To celebrate the series and to share my art work as a hard copy I have released an edition of 20 of the Ethereal Being. Each piece comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity. One piece will be available for 100€. Your support will help me and my family in this uncertain lockdown situation. All planned creative workshops have been cancelled.
If you are interested shoot me a mail.
There is also a chance to get a piece for free, check my instagram account for details.
Meta is one of the rare Street Artists in my city who’s work is absolutely original. He inittiated a spontaneous project, after finding a book with pictures of trains in a pile of rubbish on the streets. He forwarded all of the countless fantastic images of real and model trains to many of his Graffiti and Street Art colleagues. I was lucky to be able to pick a train from the book and the SNCF Jouef BB 26000 locomotive immediately caught my attention with the vision of a brick-ified version. The project sat on my desk for about two years before recently I managed to make my version.
I concentrated on the basic shape, the color scheme and some distinct details. As just copying something in existence does not attract me, I decided to implement two twists. First of all I wanted to break the train while keeping the shape. Secondary I included my alias into the sides of the trains, referring to Graffiti and the expression bombing a train.
