…but first of all in the media. So this week drawing for the Swiss Family is about christmas, more precisely christmas cookies called zimtsterne, ehm, cinammon stars, do you know them? The story is sort of complicated, but all ends well and the cat will risk it’s life in the next episodes. So there are 7 or 9 cat drawings to come, depends on if the author is stronger attached to antique or anglo-saxon tradition.
I told you that the dresses look much more stylish on beautiful Rachel than on my animals… so, here she is. I am looking so much forward to the big photoshooting of her clothes, and even more to my own el herbst - dress…
Dear Friends of my Very International English, Animals and Fashion, I want to show you a drawing I did for my friend Rachel, who designs and makes wonderful dresses… They do look much more graceful on her than on my Tierli.
One of my favourite drawings I did for the “Schweizer Familie” magazine is online this week. Clicking on the link will take you to the story and to some other drawings, but for those of you who are too lazy or speak no German, here is a little Readers Digest:
The story is for children, funny, but extremely cruel, and goes like this: A poor, tired father comes home after a long day in the office. Instead of having his well-deserved rest on the sofa with a glass of wine in his hand, he rushes to childrens’ room and starts to read them a story (“one of the most important things adults can do in preparing children for success in school and in reading is to read aloud with them”, I just learned from an educational website). Obviously, he falls asleep in the middle of the sentence.
The two children* show no mercy nor respect towards their father and decorate him with all kind of junk. Funny thing is, this story was written by a man, Harald Taglinger, who’s inner child is obviously alive and well…which is surely a big, big compliment!
*owners of toy-crocodiles, Mum, why didin’t I have one too?
