My little kid, Arthur...!

It took me two days to bring my little Arthur to life. He was originaly made to star in some animations for my website "Save our oceans". Unfortunately I didn't have the time in the end to use him . He still is my beloved first handmade toy though. His body is made from wire so that he can move his head and parts. He has fluff from a pillow for filling, various fabrics for his turtle skin and buttons for his nice eyes.

On the pictures you can see some of my work process and finally his latest excursion on the park.

Screen Printing

On Friday me and some other super geeks decided to attend an old school screen printing workshop and learn some basic stencil design techniques. These are the goodies we manage to make after two hours sketching, cutting and printing our designs into fabric...The rest is the lab we were working in that i found very interesting...

For more information about the facilities see Cuts Liverpool and the Art Organisation.

Art in the streets of Berlin

Such a creative city...Art and music are all over Berlin! You can discover hidden creatures on the walls ready to pop out and start walking and teasing the people around on the streets. Grunge walls and grafiti wherever you turn your head, no need to go far there to find some inspiration...

This are some pictures taken while visiting Berlin for the latest Pictoplasma Animation conference on 2007 and a second visit on Easter. Once you 've been once, there is no way you won't want to go back!

Design Show Liverpool 2008

Here are some pictures from the Design Show that started yesterday at an old warehouse in Liverpool. Catwalks, arts and crafts, furniture, jewllery and many more were exhibited. Worth mentioning was the building itself (The Contemporary Urban centre) that was a pleasure to walk around ... For more details about the show have a look at

The pictures I'm posting contain work from www.petraboase.com which i promised her a link to my blog...A girl with briliant clothes, canvases and toys for kids (or people that still consider themselves kids..!)

What got me well excited was also the handmade moving toys of Mr Robert Race www.robertrace.co.uk that him and his wife kindly let me play around with all of those...(risky, but i didn't break anything!)

Gustav Klimt- My new source of inspiration

Tate Liverpool Exhibition of Gustav Klimt...A brilliant artist...thin lines, erotic bodies, golden details, symbolism, byzantine and japanese influences are some of his characteristics. An exhibition that is strongly recommended.

I was thrilled by the golden phase of Gustav Klimt and his project "Beethoven Frieze". Erotic and elegant, it made me want to travel back in time and see the world in Vienna with his eyes, listening to the music that he was inspired by...
