And Now for Something Completely Different: The B-Hero And His Pet

Update: "Florian, are you positive that this is B-Hero's pet?"
No. In fact quite the reverse is true. (In this connection I want to apologise to my wise writers and co-designers who are working on this project with me for tolerating all those abstruse input of mine.)


Well, he's not that kind of girl...

The Captain's Paperplane Kit, Mod. X2005

Update 2: This buffer was intended for this year's card. Together with Captain Christmas and some others.

After all, our ideas shifted to another concept... with the Capt'n, but without this birdy. BTW: He carries his entire intellect in his left big toe. So he has to radio his ideas etc. over Bluetoe to his brainhat.


Update 1: I'm awfully sorry, I forgot to introduce the plane's design engineer to you:


To get you in pre-mood for Christmas I've a little preezie for you. The Original Captain Christmas Paperplane Kit, for Paperwalker readers only.
Well, to tell the truth, this paperplane kit was part of the S&H season's greetings mailing, Christmas 2005.

My studio's website went (still going) through a relaunch. I'll miss the old sepia coloured site, but it was full to the bursting point. So - bye, old jalopy. Hello, new one.

Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele is one of my fave artists. So it's no wonder that he is a source of inspiration. For finding new conceptions on designing characters, for instance.
