found film

A few weeks ago I opened a box in my bedroom that I hadn’t opened in quite a while. I found an old analog Olympus SLR camera. It was loaded with a Kodak T-MAX 400, only a few pictures were left. So I rewound the film and had it developed. Almost the whole roll is filled with photos from a bunch of flowers. But one showed a Swedish advertisement on the side of a building. By googling I found out that wall is/was in Malmö. I have no idea when I was in Malmö the last time – I guess it was around 2004/2005. So here are some very grainy, blurry, badly scanned, almost fifteen years old photos.

VSCO Roundup #42 – August 2018

In August we went hiking at Wilder Kaiser in Austria. It was quite hard and at some points even scary, but also absolutely wonderful and amazing. And after that: a weekend at the North Sea in the Netherlands with friends.

VSCO Roundup #41 – July 2018

July. It was hot. Very hot. And I didn’t do a lot besides sitting in front of a fan in a darkened room. But I did a trip by boat on the Baldeneysee in Essen and I went to see the Marina Abramovic exhibition in Bonn. On the museum’s rooftop was a huge playground with swings and tons of Lego (the latter one officially being an installation by Olafur Eliasson).

Typo Berlin 2018

While sorting VSCO photos from the previous months I found a folder with pictures I took during the Typo Berlin conference in May. I had already prepared all of them on my way home, but I couldn’t upload them because of the crappy WiFi on the train. So here’s a bunch of (very) black and white photos from Berlin.

VSCO Roundup #39 – May 2018

In May I first travelled East to Typo Berlin, then West to the Netherlands (yet again), but this time by bicycle. We did a part of the Rheinradweg, which is a bicycle path following the Rhine from its beginning (somewhere in Switzerland) to its end (the Dutch North Sea).

VSCO Roundup #38 – April 2018

Here comes April. You’ll meet the two cutest guys in the world: Nino & Fritzi. They do have their own Instagram account by the way, so make sure to follow for pawsome cat content. Also, there was a trip to the beach in the Netherlands again. We had great weather, barefoot walks on the beach, ice cream and beer, and I had the chance to try my new kite. Fantastic weekend! A Place To Bury Strangers played a gig in Dortmund and a guy in the front row drank beer.

VSCO Roundup #37 – March 2018

Oh. It’s the end of August already and the last VSCO Roundup I did was February. I guess there was quite a lot going on during the past months. But I’ll hurry up now and maybe in December I’ll be almost back on schedule. ;-)

In March I spent a weekend in Bremen (very nice) and Bremerhaven (incredibly ugly, but with an interesting museum).

Screen printing – do it!

Last week Diana and I took part in a screen printing workshop at Kaleidoskop. I basically knew how screen printing works but had never done it before and I was really excited to try it. After learning a bit more about the printing process and especially the preparation of the screen, we had a second meeting in which we finally printed our stuff. I had a really hard time coming up with an idea – the other two participants are illustrators and it was pretty clear they would print one of their illustrations. I thought about having a Nike-like motivational poster. I really love their “Just do it”, because that’s the solution for so many things, not just sports-wise. But I didn’t want to put up a Nike advertisement on my wall, so I decided to do it in German: Mach es. And then I did it. :-)

And now I just have to put up that poster on my wall and follow its message.
