A drawing from June 1998, 20x30 cm, with the title ,,Warten'' ["Waiting"]. There is a little story inspired by this picture (in german only; the old version with less devious design deterioration is still available).
Also, a non-adult variation of the same picture.
There are two versions of this pictures available, a large one (that means, 731x953 and 145 KB) and a small one (that means, 227x311 and 16.5 KB). I made the picture on 23.12.1998 (that is 12/23/1998), it has an original size of 20x30 cm. It has no title, just another variation of the "green swimsuit theme". I wrote a little text about it, in german, also featering Sibylle.
Available in three different sizes: as 327, 63 or 40 KB. Made 27.1.1999, 20x30 cm large, with the title "26 1/2 III". This is based on the image from 2.1.1998 with the rather long title, with the nude girl on the bed with the Einstein-poster (See also Picture Galery Part I for more information). I wanted to re-do this image with a more photo-realistic girl; the first attempt of redrawing was not that satisfying to me, so what you can see here is my second attempt of redrawing, or my third attempt of drawing that girl (that's why the picture is called "...III"). The girl is no longer a schoolgirl, I thing; it's now more an adult woman, and could be 26 1/2 years old (that's why the picture is called "26 1/2..."). I was told that her name is Mona. The letter on the wall calls her "Simonetta". One of the three books is Lakatos' "Proofs and Refutations", another on is a German-English dictionary; the third one is unknown to me. The socks now contain some holes.
Let's start with the second last picture of a series of nine pictures. I saw a picture in a TV magazine, with a woman wearing a dress with an interesting change of color emphasizing the breasts:
[,,Keim'', ("Sprout"), since it was the seed of the following pictures, 24/25.2.1999]
I tried to adopt this dress for an own picture, and thought about a series of pictures of one woman wearing different kind of dresses, like on the clothes-page; so I drew a picture with a woman wearing a rather old-fashioned kind of dress, and than, as a contrast, a rather futuristic dress.
[,,Allegorie von Vergangenheit & Zukunft Teil 1: Vergangenheit'', ("Allegoric Painting of Past & Future Part 1: Past"), 16.2.1999]
[,,Allegorie von Vergangenheit & Zukunft Teil 1: Zukunft'', ("Allegoric Painting of Past & Future Part 1: Future"), 16.2.1999]
Next I thought about combining both figures in one picture.
[,,Allegorie von Vergangenheit & Zukunft', ("Allegoric Painting of Past & Future"), 17.2.1999]
The girl on the left represents, as you may have guessed, past, the girl on the right the future. The pyramids stands for the attempt to stand time, the skull its futility. The rhombusdodecahedron in the middle can be interpret as a four-dimensional cube (a "tesserakt"), that means, a symbol of the four-dimensional space-time.
I liked the girl representing the future, and her dress, and I thought that she could be some kind of super-hero, and I tried to figure out what kind of supernatural ability she could have.
[,,Wonderbra versus Supertrampel'', ("Wonderbra vs. Superdope"), 19+21.2.1999]
The result of this considerations was the next picture, showing the superheroine Wonderbra, as she grills with a deadly ray of her magic bosom one superrogue. Of course, there was a natural analogy for a male superhero or superrogue:
[,,Wonderbra meets Superdick'', 21.2.1999]
a picture were Wonderbra battles with a corresponding enemy.
The next picture drops the subject of superheroes:
[,,Nachdem ich ,,zweite Fassung der Zeichnung ,,Die Komsomolzin Irina putzt sich dreimal täglich die Zähne - putz auch du dir dreimal täglich die Zähne zu Ehren des Sozialismus'' anläßlich des 222sten Jubiläums des Datums 22.2.1777, an dem, meines Wissens, nichts Bemerkenswertes vorgefallen ist'' zu ende gezeichnet hatte, dachte ich, daß ich dieses Bild vielleicht bei einem dritten Versuch sogar noch besser hinbekommen würde, mit einem noch längeren Titel'', ("After finishing drawing the "second version of the drawing "the comrade Irina brushes her teeth three times a day - brush your teeth also three times a day for the glory of socialism" on the occasion of the 222th aniversairy of the date of 2/22/1777, when, to my knowledge, nothing remarkable happened", I thought that I could do this picture on a third attempt maybe even better, and with an even longer title"), 22.2.1999]
It is, as the title indicates, the third version of this picture (the first and second version are not shown here, since they are less perfect and interesting). I was first of all interested in the change of perspective, as you wander along the picture.
[,,Undine begegnet zum ersten Mal dem Ritter'', ("Undine meets the knight for the first time"), 23/24.2.1999]
This picture shows a scene of Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué's tale "Undine", as the title indicates (it is one of the most beautiful tales I know; if you get the chance to get a copy, read it).
Finally, after drawing ,,Keim'', I did a last picture that I consider to be part of this series:
[,,Gerda the Giant und Iris the Elf auf dem Weg zu neuen Abenteuern'', ("Gerda the Giant and Iris the Elf on the way to new adventures"), 28.2.1999ii]
The "ii" means that this is the second version of this picture; it was partly insoired by some role-play games. I assume you can guess which person on the picture is gerda and which one is Iris.
I made a picture with 20 heads (four drawn by me, two by Tullio Pericoli, one by Raffael, one by Ernst), which can be used as a tiling. 400x500 pixel, finished 26.4.1999.
Since the above tiling isn't very useful as a background due to the large range of brightness values, I made another tiling which can be used as a background for black letters. 300x300 pixel, finished 27.4.1999.
