 So, while big Kong and little Capuchin are out of the jungle for the weekend, it´s time to introduce myself. First of all, I want to thank you all my new monkey brothers for this warm welcome. You can´t image how much joy and happiness are in my heart by joining the jungle crew :-)

As you all know since the very funny introduction by Roman, my name is Peter and I´m a good friend of him for quite some years. And well there have been some quite hard times in this years but I´m very happy to count him and Raffa to my closest friends. In my opinion the last months have been the best in my whole life. Thank you so much for this joyful experiences my friends!

Just some quick notes on my person: I´m 25 years old, have studied history and politics with my special subject in Middle Eastern politcs, its history and Islam. After my return from Egypt (just some weeks before all the hell started down there) I´m now preparing for my dissertation (and inshallah I will finish it in three years). If somebody is interested in pictures from Egypt and from Israel and the Palestinain Authorities, check out my old blog (unfortunatly the text is in German).

Well, I started painting miniatures with the age of 14, but started trying to paint a higher standard about 3 or 4 years ago. There have been hard times for me in this years because of a big lack of joy while painting. During this I thought I have to be better than other painters and forced myself to do something my heart would not accept for a long time. And poor Kong tried everything he could to change my stubborn mind, but there was not very much time to listen to him, while I was listening to this. And so, about 1 1/2 years ago I stoped painting, finished my studies and went to Cairo.

I think living in Cairo for 3 months changed a lot in my mind. When I got back, I had a new interest in painting and I was able to start thinking a new way while doing it. I may be the same stubborn guy like before, well I´m still listening to the same kind of music, but now I just want to paint for myself and feel the joy while doing it. There is no idea of competition or something of this bullshit. I think Kong´s word have finally reached my brain :-D

But enough of all this dovelike words ;-) Now I want to show you my last works:

God´s Champion:

A little lady from one of Roman´s paintingclasses:

And now my biggest and current project. It´s still WiP and there is still sooooo much to do :-) I will only show you some single pictures, the whole story will be told in some days ;-)

Best wishes,
