Archive for September, 2013


Good morning!

Do you know that feeling? You are half awake – half asleep. And you realize that you are down with a cold.
I made a sketch of that scene about a year ago. And now I finally illustrated it *yay*. Thanks to (german) SCBWI, cause we are going to send some promotional postcards to publishers. Thanks Maria for that (and your tips).

So this is what I was working on the last days. This month was full of colds over here. No joking. The image is actually a perfect match for my September.
The rest of the month I illustrated some commissioned postcards and a poster which I’ll show you as soon as they are published.

I’m happy to be part of our MATS (so happy – Part B continues next week) Blog Linking. Have a look at the other monthly roundups of my new friends over HERE.


Hello Panda!

My daughter is in love with Pandas. She’s totally crazy about them. So I thought: why not illustrating a Panda for her and use it as her dinnerware? You should have seen her face when she saw that plate. She said „PANDAAAA!“ and had the cutest smile on her face :)

Hope you like it too?!

I would like to announce a new appointment that I will have on September, 21th 2013. I will be the guest at the bookbindery Meike Lehmann who takes part at „Schätze des Westens“ in Stuttgart. This is a local district shop presentation day.

You can meet me there, you can have a look at my work, books and postcards and if you buy a beautiful product from Meike Lehmanns bookbindery you get an original Ex Libris illustration by frauknopp.

Theres is also the opportunity to look behind the scenes of the bookbindery, it is a very inspiring and interesting atmosphere, I would like to see you! Best wishes from frauknopp
