My Art

I’ve been a digital hobby artist for more than 10 years and I am doing all kinds of art: art for relevant people in my life, art to express myself, occasionally work-related art and lots of fan art. Up until recently, nearly all my life I have been painting in the at least for me classical style drawing visible outlines which I then coloured. Before I went digital, I did the colouring with crayons. 

In 2015 I had my own exhibition “iAti” at the Technical University of Berlin for half a year with some of my older drawings when I won an art contest. Not long after I had a many years long art block due to RL issues where painting often felt like a struggle or worse I could not draw at all. It eventually got better, but at some point I got stuck. I did not improve myself much and was often not satisfied with my artwork anymore. 

Then in the summer of 2022 my dear colleague and friend died and two things happened: I wanted to draw a beautiful and worthy goodbye picture and I discovered by chance the artist Demelsa Haughton, whose artwork I immediately fell in love with. It is not that I want(ed) to copy her style, because I like my own way of drawing just fine. But I tried to do a picture without all the black outlines, like all her lovely pictures also have none. I just removed them during the process of colouring. To me, this little change changed everything. The result looked so different from everything I have drawn before, and I liked it a lot. I still do. The effort I must put into such a picture is much higher and it takes way more time, but to me it is worth it. For the most part I finally like what I create again and that means the world to me. You will only ever find the artwork I’ve been doing since my transition in style on this website.
