M. posed for this drawing at Ludwig on Valentine’s Day, while telling us stories.
She was born on the same continent I was; nowadays she identifies as a “Citizen of the World”, and teaches German here in Berlin. She’s lived all over the planet; maybe all the experience is what keeps her so young. My friend Maurus, who owns Ludwig, calls the beautiful photos he takes of his guests “Souls of Ludwig“. I love the idea that we are all souls, meeting here in this world.
I drew these folks at ESDIP Berlin during a meeting.
We were talking about the schedule for the Illustration Intensive course for the summer, when we get students from all over the world. Sara is from Spain, Omar is from Ecuador, and Sarah is from the UK. But we were all united by a discussion of how appallingly expensive, and yet wildly desirable, the new iPad Pro with the stylus is.
Berlin is a place for all souls to freely be themselves.
And I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to tell these stories.
