Freud’s true Colors.

Okay, im officially hooked. Here is another try – this time I’ve taken this popular picture of Sigmund Freud and recolored it. During puberty I had quite an intenisve Freud phase, reading everything about the father of psychoanalysis I could find. This fascination recently got refreshed watching the movie “A dangerous method”. So here’s to him!

Colorized.

It’s not really a new thing around the web or the design community, but I recently started to look into colorisation of old photographs a little bit more. It really fascinates me, how old photographs suddenly look so much livelier and people seem much more real after (simplified spoken) adding some color. Black and white phtography has a thing to let people and places seem to be kind of withdrawn from the real world and like ghosts from a long time ago. And to turn this around and show their real faces has some kind of big magic in it.

I made a first attempt and colorized this old photograph of a broadway actress taken from here. But you can find some really stunning examples by Sanna Dullaway around the web.

I designed this poster for a concert of some dear friends in Germany. Made mostly by treating paper really bad and a copy machine.

My inner child.

Stop making sense.

A very new illustration from yesterday…

Life keeps changing you.

I did this illustration a while ago, around New Year. It was part of a little assignment I got and struggled with for some time. But I’m quite pleased with it now…

Superman.

Another new illustration – this time no hero or at least no one in special. I started this year in black and white and thought I would stay with it for some time now. The latest experiment with “real”, not Photoshop-created colour, didn’t satisfy me that much but somehow I couldn’t stop thinking about it and one day I had a very strong feeling that I should give felt pens a try. So here is the outcome and I have to say I’m really pleased with it. This way colour really works for me – what do you think?
