i put a little friend on this amazing childhood photo of sophia, author of the cook book i made illustrations for.
i will be writing a column about music in an.schläge magazin for a bit. starting with the current issue, where i wrote some words about how easy it is these days to record music and how i stumbled upon Connie Converse’s songs, material that was written long before i was born. the column is in german, i will also provide an illustration for each issue. this time i just took a part of the poster design i made for the Connie Converse documentary.
because of the current weather in vienna…
a study about movement, cool breezes and sudden sweat breakouts.
two years old, still relevant.
i helped out The Connie Converse Documentary by designing this film poster.
because i support people making films about things they (and i) care about.
for the video to “three minutes for a detuned diorama”, i asked people to create a portrait of a person who passed away, a person they knew, someone who was dear to their heart.
the process of receiving material mostly from strangers via email as well as my own process of filming people (mostly friends, but some of my participants i had just met) was at times almost overwhelming, in every case very touching, and resulted in wonderful hours of exchanging of stories, cups of coffee, bottles of wine, and moments of drifting off into the very dark places of the souls of humans who have lost someone.
i am very grateful that i had the opportunity to work with all of my participants, who came from all over the world (ana, angel, alex, denise, elvira, evelyna, franziska, jasmina, jean, julia, simone, sophia, tamara, and veronika.). thank you. it has been wonderful.
to pencils and paper, to clay and all our hands.
there’s this new thing i made to a song of mine.
Ian Fisher & The Present & The Reverend John DeLore have got a 7” 3-song special release coming up in september and i created the cover artwork. This is Canadian Patriot Waitress.
