PYJAMABAY´S REVENGE

here´s a classic video game cover attendant to the release of pyjamabay´s new video. when the bayman grabs the mic and touches the fire flower afterwards he´s on spitfire and able to kill every wack emcee!
look out for the little pyjamabay sign, for the first time in 2D!

VOODOO-YOGA

artwork for pyjamabay.


Donnerstag

SUNGODHEAD

this one is inspired by the symmetric aztec-style.
astronaut, native, sungod or a guy with headphones?
probably I´ll make a wooden amulet out of it.


Sonntag

REALEASE



Pyjamabay the album is now available as mp3 or CD!

Montag

SPOOKY-BOO

I worked for quite a while on this one.
for me subjects like occult symbolism, signs of wisdom or power, Illuminati and so on, just fitted naturally to my childhood influences like Scooby-Doo, Tintin and mysterystuff.
I mashed it all up in the hat and out came this kind of pulpy comic cover.

PYJAMABAY ALBUM

yeahyaw, Pyjamabay´s first passionate effort is finally about to drop.
a limitless and uncompromising collection of sound-spheres,
each one a kaleidoscopic bubble-universe on its own.
you might catch the drift of his beats and they´ll take you on a journey.

I designed the whole artwork, including cover-art, logos, illustrations, layout and photos. It will be released on CD in the shape of a nice digipack.

PYJAMABAY

I did some photos for the new website of my fellow Pyjamabay.
therefor I borrowed a unique handmade and very old mask from a familiar
sculptor and artist, Willi Bucher.





and check out the new Logo!

ODD OR WHUT

I loved the animated show MTV´s Oddities which ran through the 1990s 
and featured fifteen minute episodes from The Head and The Maxx.
I still dig that eyeball logo.




at the moment, in the matter of cartoons, obviously Adventure Time should be 
the shit. So I watched a bunch of episodes. It is strange and kind of dark. 
certainly I like it.




and how odd is it that the studio´s name is ...

I Goblin

JETSQUAD FOOL

made this illustration as kind of a thank-you for all the free music that Curren$y supplied us with, culminating in the release of his newest great EP, Covert Coup. 

maybe I´ll send this to him in some way. Curren$y is also gonna be at the splash 2011 and for this reason I am seriously considering to go there.

JETS, PLANES & PAPERS

last summer I discovered the music of Curren$y. since then I was thrilled and constantly listening through the tons of his releases. with him came a bunch of fellows, all kinda related to the whole Jet Life movement (except Domo Genesis, who belongs to Odd Future but the cover fitted perfect).
I put together a collection of my favourite artworks.

all illustrated and weed related.
"higher than a muh, ..."

FUMETTO

yesterday I was at the annual FUMETTO Comix Festival 2011 in Luzern.




it is the 20th anniversary of the festival and the main guest cartoonist is Daniel Clowes, creator of cult hits like Ghostworld, Eightball and David Boring.




it was a little rushed to get to all the expositions and locations on time, but I saw so much awesome stuff for one day and got a perfect crop of new comics.

FROM THE YONDER

my pal and estimated beatmaker Pyjamabay is about to drop his first official album. I helped him with the label logo. I like the simplicity and ambiguity of it.

from the yonder, baby!


Freitag

HIGH HEAD

there is a fine little story behind this picture.
it is told that during hard times the big monument of Karl Marx will rise from the ground and smash every enemy of the city chemnitz.
I mashed that with the post-apocalyptic science-fiction movie Zardoz, where a huge, flying, hollow stonehead teaches: 

The gun is good. The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was, but the gun shoots death, and purifies the Earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth . . . and kill!


Sk80s

back in the days we were rollin on those clumsy fatbreads.

Blockhead - The Music Scene

I love the top-notch animation for Blockheads new video.


 

Sonntag

FHWL3



the last few weeks I played around with different kinds of grids to create a retro-print look.


Samstag

CHILLIN VILLAIN

the clock, a tool poster, a palm tree, polo rider, 5-panel cap, toaster, the chair, a mysterious package and a paper bag mask = SWAG.




Freitag

CHEECH WEEZARD

one of my all time favourite characters is Vaughn Bodé´s Cheech Wizard.
probably because this little hooded guy kinda followed me noteless for a long time. he was generally accompanied by his lizard apprentice. I saw both first as often used graffiti characters and found out later that they where underground comic characters in 1967, too.



then I found out about the link to Ralph Bakshi´s movie Wizards and the red robot, which was inspired by Bode´s Wizard.




I wanted to do like ... call it a homage, redesign or a third step
in the history of the evolution of this character.
he´s old now but drunk and high as always.
the Cheech Weezard with his Lizard ... Chong.

KID COSMIC
