hey folks,
long time no hear or see..
her is my newest work..i hope you like it
its a jointventure between me and a Ernst Veingart ,a mainly historical sculptor from riga in latvia,
we met at the world expo 2008 in girona..
and as we liked each others work... we decided to do a team project..
i had a idea for a biiig project...for next world expo
but first we decided to make a small project for the start ... to see if we could work together.
our small idea turned out to become a real big thing..
starting with one of my favorite topics of all time.. Alice in the wonderland..with a picture by Arthur Rackham
and it turned out to be one of the most challenging pieces off what i have painted so far.
we thought long time how to transform this drawing in to a 3d sculptur..

i dont want to sound to theatrical but.. i must really thank Ernst for having such a deep trust in me sending me his lovechild alice ... after knowing me just a couple of days. and trusting me that i will du my best to paint her up. And his lovely wife Inara for backing him of for the nearly three month he worked full time on that sculpt.
And i whant to thank my girl kristin ....because she beared my bitchyness whenn i was going crazy because of paintnig to many cards..

and thanks to Marlene Fulde for those Fotos....
