A Wizard Without a Shadow session IV

A Wizard Without A Shadow (IV) (107)

17/04/2023, Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪 “A Wizard Without A Shadow” is officially finished after 4 creative breakfasts, session I, session II, session III, and session IV, today. Today I had not only the – now infallible – company of Juliët, but also the company of Tineke. The three of us we enjoyed a long (very long!) and pleasant breakfast at Belle Alliance, enjoying the excellent service and atmosphere of creativity. As you can see in the video, my dear reader, I moved my hands a lot more. That’s the effect of having talked a lot more, something inevitable when I’m with T. With J. instead, we enjoy more the silence. Two different persons, two different ways of sharing the creativity. The Wizard Without a Shadow will be scanned within the next few days, printed in high quality, and will be sent as printed + NFT copy of the 1st series to the noble Chaotic Monk (S1 1/2) and the Queen of all fries Jessy Jeanne (S1 2/2). Series 2 will be available in my next markets. But tell me dear reader… What do you think of the final drawing?Did you catch a glimpse of how the cheese cake evaporated in the video?

A Wizard Without a Shadow - 3rd session

A Wizard Without A Shadow (III) (100)

10/04/2023, Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪 It is official: I have a tradition of creative breakfasts on Mondays. Today, Juliët joined me again, and dedicated her time to write some nice things that hopefully will see the public light soon 👀. We spent more than two hours, time in which I started to paint A Wizard Without a Shadow. This morning the weather was incredibly nice, a clear perfume of spring in the air, open sky, and lots of sunlight. That’s why Juliët proposed to visit a place with an open terrace: the Kaffeebar Jacobi. What an amazing place! This café is located in the limit of a cemetery near Hermannplatz, but totally covered from the chaos of this spot of the city. The whole session was very pleasant, as people around us were also in a creative / pacific / slow mood either reading, writing or chatting. Next Monday I will do the last session of watercolours, and I will give for finished the drawing (hopefully!). In any case, it looks like this artwork is going to be well received: isn’t even finished yet and L. already asked me for a copy yesterday at the market. But tell me dear reader… How many repetitions do you think we need to define a tradition?Do you like to enjoy a free time near a cemetery? Have a wonderful day 🍳☕️ NFT 🚨🚨 SUPER SPECIAL POST! 🚨🚨 Today’s is a #CelebrationPost : 100 days of daily posts!

A Wizard Without a Shadow - 2nd session

A Wizard Without A Shadow (II) (093)

03/04/2023, Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪   This morning I went to Someone Loves You to draw and to (literally) feed my emerging tradition of long and creative breakfasts (link to CB). Last Monday I had planned to do a watercolour session, but the situation took a different turn. What changed regarding the first session is that today I shared the breakfast with Juliët, who wrote some poetry while I drew. Before Juliët arrived, I started to add some details and to define a bit more those first erratic shapes started last Monday. As a result of those early explorations, I got into details to an almost obsessive level: shadows, textures and even unexpected minutiae like some Escherian scenes. As watercolours take time and I was really enjoying this stage, I decided to leave the colouring for next week. Sharing the session with Juliët was great, the creative atmosphere was palpable and materialised in a more than comfortable silence. From Juliët’s text (a gem, by the way) perhaps will emerge some collaboration. We’ll see in the next sessions of the “creative breakfasts”. But tell me dear reader… Is it comfortable for you to share the silence?What detail of the drawing did you like the most?
