As a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Photographer, I am often asked how I generate “ideas” for my work and manipulate them into images. Well, I find that looking at jobs done, reading books, talking to friends, colleagues and visiting exhibitions, helps tremendously. And viewing these experiences from different angles, for example, has always been a way (for me) to help solve graphics-related problems. That means looking at them from a different mindset. And because graphic design is art which makes itself useful, producing art involves listening to one's inner self and to then visualise a picture originating from that inner voice or attuning to a subject which has been looming up at you for some time, or just something you've been thinking about, waiting for it to be transferred into a work of design or art. It doesn't matter how that art got there and that's it. It must just please your customer and/or have increased built-in value.
Recently, over the past 10 years or so, corporate painting and graphics have become a rather splendid entity, popular not only for companies and institutions but also for private homes and private art collectors – all around the world. So what could be more inspiring (and more successful), than putting – at least some of your work – on one of the world's largest web markets for art. Are you hoping for a wider presentation?
This gallery goes on a journey through pieces with TWO pieces in any one picture. As the caption suggests: Buy One – Get One Free! The anagram of this gallery title reads TO_WIN_ONE which evolved purely by chance, is truly bewildering and makes the mind boggle!
is a gallery for lots of posters in many genres, formats, and themes. Time for fun!
is a range of colored pictograms depicting 'business types', who are being hushed around the world, trying to find the best way of making business progress in a modern, economic environment.
Well, I just cannot imagine my ArtPal presence without a nature gallery. So here it is, again one of my favorites. When touring around the countryside there is always a camera at hand. And there are some pretty awesome public gardens at disposal, just begging to be shot at – with a camera lens, of course!
✫ BLACK_AND_WHITE drawings explain what happens — or what CAN happen when the German public develops — and discusses — thoughts about their language and the effect of the media upon every-day life.
These drawings are from way back in 1998 but nonetheless still analog today.
There’s a lot of talk about Aliens nowadays: A customer of mine wanted his Corporate Image, based not on the eventual existence of would-be extraterrestrial entities, but rather what it may be like in the next 300 to 500 years or so, to experience business in the depicted kind of operating system. I endeavored to illustrate those distant happenings. Please enjoy! And: Beam me up, Bernd!
That’s some of the present collections explained. I do hope you enjoy the various galleries I’ve produced. Fact is, the largest one by far is the SOMETHING_ FOR_EVERYONE gallery with Sayings, Posters, and a little fun stuff. Rather a personal favorite.
