EBITDA, or I sold my first picture or bookkeeping discussions

Today’s illustration shows you me, blinking into the sun. I started working on it April 18, after I took a quick photo with my phone in the morning, blinking into the sun. I used my digital drawing board starting with a 2 pixel pencil doing the contours and major areas and picked colors together with […]

general thoughts

fast-forward self and system

today, something new: a sketch that I have not done, yet.  No flower, no flacon, but a quick manga boy sketch that I did this Monday morning on the computer – or on the screen rather- while the other computer was doing its backup thing and needed a reboot. Getting all the back-ups done and […]

In need of another card going with shipments

I did not run out of the fragrance PHI-une rose de Kandahar, but I run out of the printed cards with the PHI-bottle illustration that looked like that: I still have some of the No-14 Noontide Petals illustration cards, but it is about time for a new card, in flyer format, 300 gr per m2. […]

among other things ahead, spring

Hurray: Another sunny, spring like day seems to be ahead of us. Wonderful. Today, when I got up, the moon was still shining, but it was doing so under an immaculate dark sky. I got up early today, like: really early, driven out of bed by a clear vision of a full email box, and […]

it happens

Fragrant greetings from Zurich, where I am behind commenting the comments on yesterday’s post and some facebook posts. Sorry! But here’s the thing: When headind for the factory, I run out of my data package for Switzerland on the ipad, and loading more data by paying for them did not work. It turned out yesterday […]

an illustration on Evelyn Avenue, and a word on labels

yesterday, I was sort of proud, as I sort of managed to get all all done and more. The one larger pack with scents for the US is ready. I boxed all scents and packed them ready for shipment.  Thus, I can get the “shipper’s declaration” for dangerous goods (looks like this, pdf) done by […]

At Evelyn Avenue, a picturesque insight

Over there on Evelyn Avenue, Brian Pera published an illustration of mine and my description of where and why I did it. Here is the link directly to the blog post: “Andy Tauer’s sketchbook. The Gelati cart”. I hope you find the time reading it. This is the first column of a monthly series on […]

the video of the Noontide Petals sketch used for cards

Fragrant greetings to you all! This week will be super busy and I need to keep my blog posts (and replies) a bit short. I will be trying to pack and send some orders to retailers, and I will need to continue stocking up a bit. One of these stocking up items: Noontide Petals, in […]

Illustrating NOONTIDE PETALS

Yesterday, I got the NOONTIDE petals labels for the flacon. The label that will sit on the shoulder (picture coming next week) is a bright yellow, not too loud, but bright. I picked a comparable color for an illustration that I finished this morning, during my first creative Friday hours. You can see the result […]
