monster monster on the wall

Hey folks,

a bit more than 2 month to go on the diploma. The main project is almost done, the documentation slowly drags along. I wish I just could hand in a ring book folder... or something. But noooo.
I will post a full review of the exhibition (which has ended) soon, I am still waiting for the permissions to post the photos.

In the meantime, whenever I hit a minor... very minor... mile... okay, centimeterstone in my work I scribble around on monsterstuff. I need the distraction to keep my lines in order for the diploma. So, among some "this is what i am wearing today" and gadgets for the monsterbook, here are the rough drawings of some monsters - all pages from my current sketchbooks.

Thank you for stopping by : )
At my tumblr I keep explaining some of the designs (also showing the slightly more polished, sometimes colored versions)

Here they are implemented in the still in progress monsterbook: . Soon the Submission Form is bug free, then I await YOUR take on everyday or neverday fears and annoyances.

Monsterbook and Font!


Woah, i have more material to do just one blog entry. For my diploma I created a Font I want to share with you today.

So, here it is - free for commercial and non-commercial use. Be aware that the kerning is off, though - you have to adjust it by hand. Designed for Headlines.

In 2004 I closed down a page - a collection of monsters. This font made me want to do the redesign. And while I read up tons of stuff for my diploma, I treated myself to drawing little monsters and redesigning that page, whenever I hit a minor milestone... well, they're more milepebbles...
It is not fully functional yet, but the monster entries work. I will post more sketches and stuff when i come around to make it presentable.
Later, there will be an entry form for your own monsters as in the good old days!

Have a look and laugh about my programming mistakes. Everything that is really good is done by my husband, though ; )

Thank you for your time!
