Here a text from the FRIZZ Magazine ( in German):
Offene Ateliers Frankfurter Kunstsommer Open Doors ›› 13.+20.8. Atelierfrankfurt, 12-18 Uhr, www.atelierfrankfurt.de
Im Rahmen des ersten Frankfurter Kunstsommers, der sich auf die Fahnen geschrieben hat, die freie Kunstszene Frankfurts und die hier lebenden und arbeitenden Künstlerinnen und Künstler einem breiteren Publikum vorzustellen, öffnet das Atelierfrankfurt an zwei Tagen im August erneut seine Pforten. Das Atelierfrankfurt ist eines der größten Kunstquartiere Deutschlands. An zwei Tagen im Spätsommer öffnen die Künstler ihre Ateliers auf ihren jeweiligen Etagen und laden die Besucher in ihre Arbeitsräume ein. Im Atelier des Künstlers Johannes Kriesche liest die Offenbacher Lyrikerin Katharina Eismann am 13. August (14 Uhr) Gedichte vor, die teilweise vom Frankfurter Osthafen inspiriert wurden. Kriesche ist einer der drei zeitgenössischen Künstler der Ausstellung „Apokalypse des Realen“, die am 23. August im Atelierfrankfurt startet. Gemeinsam mit Federico Rosa und Gabriel Stoian möchte er mit seinen Arbeiten die Gesellschaft für Probleme sensibilisieren. In ihren Werken hinterfragen sie visuell das Reale und setzen es mit einer Apokalypse gleich. Auch Künstler und Kreative im Frankfurter Westen laden in ihre Studios ein. Das Gelände der ehemaligen Druckfarbenfabrik Dr. Carl Milchsack hat sich in eine „mehrdimensionale Kulturfabrik“ verwandelt. Von 16 bis 19 Uhr können Besucher durch die offenen Ateliers schlendern und Einblicke in den Schaffungsprozess der Künstler erhaschen. Fotografien von Niko Neuwirth und die Klanginstallation „Klangsackerl“ von Sylvia Necker bespielen den Hof des Milchsackgeländes. Um 20 Uhr startet das Livekonzert der Darmstädter Band „Messer Brüder“, auf deren musikalischer Agenda Electronic Garagerock steht, bevor es ab 22 Uhr „Film ab!“ heißt. Ein Foodtruck versorgt die Kunstinteressierten mit Snacks und Drinks. Die Veranstaltung findet in Kooperation mit dem Frankfurter Kultursommer 2017 und Gutleut-Tagen 4.0 statt und möchte auch explizit Familien einladen.

Illustrations for VOSS flavored water

Near a year ago I started working for the SPRING Design Partners on the Illustrations for the bottles of the new flavored sparkling water by VOSS.
Here are the sketches and their developing after the feedbacks. Have a look at the VOSS page! the bottles look amazing!







Label for IMBUE - American Vermouth

A couple of months ago I started a comissioned work for IMBUE Cellars based in Oregon (USA).
They wanted two labels for the dry and the sweet Vermouth bottles. This was a very special project and I enjoyed it a lot as they wanted absolutly the whole label, front and back, illustration and text, hand drawing & hand writting... as a hand-crafted product that they offer.
So here is my work, made full of love too!  ;)
Do you recognize the plants in the drawings? there is Chamomile, Juniper, Vanilla, Wormwood, Oranges, Grapes leaves...fully fresh and aromatic! I am looking forward to taste it too, now that Summer is coming!!


And here some previous sketches while developing the design:
