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 Black and white phtography has a thing to let people and places seem to be kind of withdrawn from the real world and like ghosts from a long time ago.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.

Please don’t sing that song, that we all can sing along

Some memories of the Paul McCartney concert yesterday at Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna. It’s his Out-There-Tour and it sure was a blast, of some kind. But I don’t need to see the biggest Beatles-Cover-Band featuring Paul McCartney. I don’t have the urgent want to sing “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da” or “Hey Jude” in a drunken beer-mood. I want the real thing. I want to see a brilliant musician at work. Not an entertainer, celebrating his Greatest Hits over and over again. There should be more to it. And – I guess you can ask every real Beatles fan – there is.

My Vienna – #1

After some years of using Instagram I’ve come up with quite a collection of pictures and snapshots. Many of them not very unique or with any other purpose than documenting a single situation eventually on facebook. Like “look I made carrot salad” or “me and my husband at …”. But then there are some few pictures I really like and that can stand for themselves I think.

As I live and work in Vienna, many of my pictures are taken in this city so they come with kind of a theme naturally. I’ll just put my favourites from the past few years on display right here – and, as I am choosing to throw the “#1” behind the headline, I set myself the goal to make more “better” pictures and less “look I have a life” snapshots. So I hope there might be more soon.

Passion.

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…
