Rifle Marksbird

Another retro futurism blade.

I'm heading for vacation next week. I wish you all a happy Summertime and many thanks for your wonderful comments on my work. I appreciate that very, very much.


  1. Hallo Florian!

    Das sind wunderschöne Viecher!
    Ganz hervorragend, und vor allem
    im von mir sehr verehrten OldSchool-
    Disney-Picture-Style (Aristocats
    ist nach wie vor ungeschlagen, oder?). Und hier ähnlich:
    Die tollen kantigen, sperrigen Linien, das Crescendo der
    Bleistiftästhetik. Ich mag am liebsten den Oger mit dem imaginary-friend-problem.
    Wenn Du Zeit findest, schau doch mal vorbei:
    oder www.figurenbrut.blogger.de
    Freue mich, alles Liebe,
    schöne Ferien.

  2. Great! Great! Great! The silhouette is easy read. The interesting character, and devices. Excellent!!!

  3. It's a snork surrounded by genetically modified beehives! Just kidding! Oh, man, this is so amazing. Were there any particular subjects that you researched in order to come up with this idea?

  4. just writing to say that i love your designs, they're all very interesting characters. amazing work here. :)

  5. Ian, Marco, Maksim, Richard, Ashley!
    Great, I'm really glad that you like this queer bird! Thank you!

    Richard, thanks! This piece was inspired by a tennis referee's high chair.

    Marco, vielen Dank, ich kann nicht leugnen, dass der "old-school" Stil meine Stifte steuert. Auf gewisse Weise aber auch die Ecole Marcinelle (Andre Franquin). Erkennbar wird das z.B. an meiner Vorliebe fuer verrueckte Apparate, Maschinen und Flug-/Fahrzeuge.

  6. still in the blue-phase? ;) ... just want to say that your art-work is very inspiring ...

    wish a great vecation-time!

    cheers fränk
