Wesley Willis

Donnerstag, 22. April 2010

this is my desk. ok ok only a little part of the things which are on my desk.
essentially i like to show you the floral- ink drawing. it was a great “schöneberger” flea market- find and this great card with amazing  colours- drawn by Wesley Willis (May 31, 1963 – August 21, 2003). i love his work so much!

Wikipedia knows it better:

“Wesley Lawrence Willis was a busker, musician, comedian and artist from Chicago. A diagnosed chronic schizophrenic, he gained a sizable cult following in the 1990s after releasing several hundred songs of simple but unique music, with emphasis on his humorous, bizarre, and frequently obscene lyrics. In addition to his large body of solo musical work, Willis fronted the punk rock band the Wesley Willis Fiasco. He also produced hundreds of unusual colored ink-pen drawings, most of them of the Chicago skyline and CTA buses.”


Besides the fact, he sang about all the things i like e.g. McDonalds, Batman i´m not really into his music…guess why?!

Mummy Boy

Freitag, 15. Januar 2010

he wasn´t a soft and pink with a fat little tummy;
he was a hard and hollow, a little boy mummy.

“tell us,  please, doctor, the reason or cause,
why our bundle of joy is just a bundle of gauze.”

“my diagnosis,” he said, “for the better or worse,
is that your son is the result of an old pharaoh´s curse.”

(…)

It was late in the day—just before dark.
Mummy boy took his dog for a walk in the park.

The park was empty except for a squirrel,
and a birthday party of an mexican girl.

the boys and girls had started to play,
but noticed that thing that looked like papier mâché .

“Look, it´s like a pinata,” said one of the boys,
“lets crack it wide open and get candy and toys.”

they took a baseball bat and whacked open his head.
Mummy boy fell to the ground; he finally was dead.

Inside of his head were no candy or prizes,
just a few stray beetles of various sizes.

Taken from TIM BURTON´S short story “MUMMY BOY“.
Abstract from a book, called “THE MELANCHOLY DEATH OF THE OYSTER BOY & OTHER STORIES

before my departure to spain i found this wonderful book (an issue from 1956)  in a sloppy cardboard box right beside my front door. i like the colours on the cover, the skirt and the way how the synopsis is written at the back of the book.
…oh so, i´m happy to be back again!

Paper Tree Notebook

Mittwoch, 22. April 2009

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich hier in München direkt um die Ecke einen wundervollen PAPIERLADEN gefunden und mir dort dieses wunderschöne Notizbuch gekauft…ich habe mich sofort in das Muster und das Papier verliebt! Einige Zeit lag es nun in meinem Regal um die optimale Bestimmung dafür zu finden. Jetzt bin ich mir sicher, Rezepte kommen da rein! Handgeschrieben, eingetippt,  eingeklebt und im Idealfall mit Fotos dazu. Genau wie meine Sketchbooks nur eben mit Anleitungen für köstliche Kuchen und Abendessen!

Ay me! it´s quite a while… such a thrilling time!
For that reason i like to show you my greatest treasures. more than ten years of writing and collecting i have various diaries including the most secret secrets. i collect receipts, photographs, tickets, poems, postcards, plusplusplus to remind me of these special times…whether they are good or bad. these days i have to start a new one (still an exciting thing for me) and i found a wonderful book. salmon- pink linnen with a mint bookmark, blank and thick pages as always- love it!

E.A. Poe Illustrated Tales of Mystery and Imagination

Freitag, 1. Februar 2008

this is a wonderful book published by Die Gestalten Verlag. Edgar Allan Poe is one of the most important american writers and was a considered part of the American Romantic Movement. best known for his mystery and macabre short storys and poems his imagination comes to life in this amazing book.  the illustrations, done by great artists combined with ten short story masterpieces send a shiver down my spine and make me loving it.
