The Lindwurm, or lindworm, was a serpentine dragon (and man-eater) of Norse and Central European mythology (Fafnir was also a lindworm). It is at the origin of the legendary foundation of the city of Klagenfurt (among others), of which it is the symbol.

There are places that, thanks to their beauty alone, make us live better ...
The thoughts, and the pencil that is guided by them, run to beloved landscapes and places, to the desire and hope to see them soon ... so here is a small preparatory drawing of the beautiful medieval Rapperswil, with its very long wooden bridge and its lake (with its fauna).
The cover of the spring issue of the magazine and, next to it, the small illustration published to accompany the novel of the Author Sandra Rutschi (I am happy to have also been able to collaborate with the new direction of the Magazine!).
Medieval longbowmen, crossbowmen and a falconer. As always my illustrations (and all those of other "Sorcery: Contested Realm" artists) are hand painted!
|The Steppe Card with desert sunset!|
|In the first vertical version of the Village a small foreground was also drawn. Here a partridge. In the background a typical wooden village of the Swiss Alps (Canton Valais)|
|In this vertical version another Village and another small foreground scene: a hawk attacks the partridge. In the background there is a typical village of Lower Saxony or Frisia.|
|These are the final versions in landscape format. I am delighted to have been able to portray some of my favorite European landscapes with these village Cards|
I am truly honored and happy to have been able to create, in these years, illustrations published in the high quality magazines of the publisher Landverlag and in the beautiful book "Bildung beginnt in der Natur". Now I have also had the opportunity to create a new illustration dedicated to Christmas in a Swiss winter landscape. Thank you very much!
