More sketchbookstuff from the 80's



This must have been around 85 or somewhere. I had developed the habit to listen a lot to German Chansons, what we call Liedermacher over here, probably because they were telling little 3 act stories in their songs, sometimes silly sometimes full of pathos. I was using their lyrics as a source of inspiration, I was kinda listening for cues, illustrating their songs or people from them.I was, without thinking, doing little character design studies. This again "just happend", I never thought about it as a concept, I was just desparatly looking for things to draw, and I always preferred stuff from my imagination rather than drawing existing people , mimicing styles or doing landscapes. I never was or will be a great draftsman. Anyway, this habit led, and you will witness that, as we go on, ( yes, there will be more of this old stuff, since I have nothing else to blog, being under disclosure from various projects for more than a year, now )...it finally led to Alfred Kwak, a character that I first met on a record as well, he will sneak his way into the sketchbooks bit by bit.
Enough talk, enjoy, H

Hallo Harald
Das waren Zeiten... Ich erinnere mich sogar noch an den Schwarzen Mo. Immer wenn ich damals sonne und ähnliche Sachen von dir sehen durfte, war das ein großer Antrieb für mich. Dafür wollte ich mich mal bedanken.
Holger

Holger, altes Haus ! Gern geschehen, und ja, Christian Schellewald war auf der Waldstrasse, ebenso wie Rainer Stock, jetzt gerade Production Design von "Das Parfum", "Lissi" und "Krabat". Die Welt ist klein.
