I am back, once again with thesis stuff: This is the cover artwork for "Number 4", the last one missing that i finally managed to finish just in time for the oral exam two days ago (i did it btw -> i am done: Bachelor of Arts, FU§% YEAH!)... i feel a bit sad about the fact that i haven't got that much time for this one, it looks bit rushed, especially compared to the other three in my opinion (as seen in the rough close-ups above...) - but i am glad that i managed to finish it at all, especially under all the strain and the overall circumstances of a final exam. So yeah, hope you like it! :)

"Unter dem Himmel keinen Zweiten"
Guido Ludes was a professor of mine. He died the day after Christmas peacefully in the presence of his family after a long illness. He was just 64 years old. I painted this small portrait for the condolences book at the university, where everyone is allowed to write something down. The quote is in german language, an old japanese proverb which means "one of a kind".
I am glad that i had the chance to meet him.
