http://www.tanzstern-oriental.de - looks good. Very neat source coding there. XD
Oooh I do like those graphic concepts. ^^ I'm excited to hear you'll be pursuing a career as a webdesigner- your strong colour concepts will be good for that path. ^^ Website looks good too. All the best on that~
Also, I really like your home. It looks so cosy!
Wonderful sketch book!!
ilmenhim: Thank you! Of course my code is neat I tried a new approach this time, coding the HTML first without any CSS, so I can concentrate on the content and markup. I like that approach very much, it's additive. So instead of subtracting stuff from your mockup in order to simplify, you can make sure just to have stuff in it that needs to be in.
mike butkus: Thank you!
Here's another one. I accidentally my tea over a drawing. So I continued.
Nice sketchbook man, You seem pretty productive.
Im liking the enviroments! and that last pencil drawing is nice.
Thank you guys, I appreciate it a lot!
Fetsch: Ich hab mich aus Online-Kommunikation voll zurückgezogen, ist ein riesen Zeitfresser finde ich. Aber bei Facebook kannst du mich finden, wenn du willst
I have a few dozen drawings in my "for scanning" drawer, will come soon. Here are two spreads from my WIP uni project about pluto's loss of planetary status and the solar system in general.
The approach of setting content in neat tags before working on the stylesheet makes things so much simpler in the sense that you can then play around with the styles to shuffle content around the webpage. ^^
And haha, nice addition of tea to art. ;D Looks good~
Really like the last image- kind of like a foreboding omen. The one before that scared my housemate when I was looking at it. XD I love the colours and I don't think it's that scary though.
Thank you again! Good to see another Coder around here! Great to see I scared your housemate Also you not being afraid shows that you understand it way better!
Here's a sketch that belongs to the page layouts further above. I have to do too many illustrations to really work them out so I'm tinkering with an approach that let's them look good even though they're quickies. Will post coloured later, once I cleaned up this scanned mess.

Great to hear you like it, thanks Krato!
Here's part of my pre-diploma. Finally uploaded them today. I hope you like them.
Planet Pluto (Flickr-Set)
A University Project: Contemporary portraits of the goddesses and gods that gave names to the main objects in our solar system – to be used in a book about Pluto's loss of planetary status.
LOL at Pluto!!! Great stuff always enjoy your work.
Whisping leaves break the air as lost souls sleep unaware. Colors and sounds thrive and sway under a blind cover of mud and clay
Like your illustration! Again colours
Your university project is interesting. The dark background in the photos of the sun and planets really sets the mood. This may sound weird but I even like how you've arranged the TOC. XD
Oh thank you! It's a pleasure to come back to my sketchbook and find your posts.
ilmenhin: I tend to get too tidy at times, I don't have an objective look on the layout any more, I just hope the pages aren't too tidy. Thanks for your support!
darknight: The speedy ones are all between 15 minutes for really rough sketches up to 3 hours for more finished ones. The one with the red buildings by the lake was a little more than 4 hours if I recall correctly. I never keep track of time while I paint.
So, guess Alan Wake is in my thoughts today.
PS: Aside, I want some summer this year or I'm gonna kick Zeus' ass…
Wicked work, man. I'll keep an eye on this.
awesome AWESOME sketchbook!
Incredible art, really, please keep it up!
You're a big example to me. Why?
I study digital design and media, this is webdesign and stuff, and i'm always wondering, is it possible to be able to focus/combine both modern design and handdrawn/painted art, you're the living proof! Great job man!
Help me improve my drawing skills by commenting my sketchbook
The Flying Dutchman: Thanks!
Surion: Glad you like it. As you can see, I cannot always manage to keep the art side up.
ilmenhin: Updates soon, I wanna paint moar!
Juhani Jokinen: Thank you!
Darkside: Not Cologne, but I was in Frankfurt in 2009 (or 08?)
Starr: Thanks a lot!
A mere mini-update of mid-old stuff.
MOAR IS GOOD. Loving the updates!
I recognise the first few couple of concept pieces! Then I saw your line on updating with mid-old stuff. They're still pretty good: great forms and interesting characters.
amazing uni project! it looks fantastic. Nice topic too, seems trivial yet topical at the same time. loving thiis sketchbook thread a ton.
Thanks for sharing such great work, its a feast for the eyes.
Artur: Dank und Anerkennung!
ilmenhim: Thank you! Hope to be able to do some more of this as soon as the semester is over.
Liam: Glad you like it. I always wanted to work on something related with astronomy.
So apart from ugly guys standing knee-high in liquids, here's a city I built for a website our team created for the interactive course at our university.
It will later be the center of our website, with a sun circling around it (as the navigation). Here's a test render of the sun / shadow movement:
EDIT: Thanks, xbert! Und gude!
EDIT3: This sketchbook turned 5 years last month! \o/
Been a while, huh? I've been busy, launched my own little business about the same time I last posted in here. A lot of work, which is good. Counting some actual money is a nice thing and it keeps me going on. Almost non of the jobs I do are art-related, though. So nothing to show here either.
I finally have my portfolio up and running at jannis-borgers.de (German) and I'm hoping to get some illustration jobs next year.
I'm also going to finish my studies next spring with a nice illustration/design/motion project. More on that in the coming months.
Other than that, here's some stuff I have done in the past year. I wish I'd do this as a job (yeah, an honest *sigh* there) …
A vinyl cover artwork done for a friend of mine:
And a sculpt made for an "analogue design weekend" started by two of our lectors. This was exhibited in an art show later. More pics and info on the project and others on my website.
Did I show these little guys over here?
EDIT2: I forgot this WIP:
