A sea of doodles

Posted in Uncategorized on February 5, 2015 by Wirtz Animation

By now it’s more than clear that I particularly enjoy doodles in their varied expressions.  Last year was filled with oddball pieces I created, here’s one.

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2015 by Wirtz Animation

So last year was pretty active, one of the many shenanigans I got myself into was a design competition, Here´s some pics from the event.1399690313134 1399690313988 1399690315129 1399690316207

It truly was an honor to be featured with such talent.

P.S. mine´s the big doodle spewing smaller ones.

Work on Merchandise

This year has been quite fun, plenty of projects to tackle and lost of work done.

Here´s some samples of illustration work featured on my Society6 page and quite a few other sources.  If you´re interested, contact me for details.

I have to admit I feel pretty productive now that I see this much done.

I´m Not Charlie Hebdo (but I should be)

Posted in Uncategorized on January 14, 2015 by Wirtz Animation

2015 came along and with it, the strangeness flowed. We’re halfway through January and I still can’t shake 2014 off, it wasn’t a good or bad year; both good and bad things happened.  Bringing all these events to mind makes me ponder.   What was done right? What mistakes were made? Were the corrected? If they weren’t, can they be corrected? And how?

This deep meditation actually got me out of some funky moods that were bringing me down quite heavily and got me to take some action.  First and foremost, I picked up my markers and drew, nothing in particular at first.  I read somewhere that action and motion leads to work getting done and creativity flowing.  Turns out Picasso was right (who would´ve guessed, the masters knew what they were doing).

As dots turned into lines, lines turned into doodles, and doodles into shapes I ended with a few pieces heavily inspired by the recent events at Charlie Hebdo.  I want to make this clear. I AM NOT AGAINST ISLAM OR ANY RELIGION OR LACKTHEREOF (yes even the ones who worship snake people have a right to do so) regardless of my thoughts on any or all of them.  I am, however utterly against extremism, censorship, political-correctness (which is Bullcrap),  and all around idiocy.

So you have a different viewpoint than me, tough luck.  If your convictions are strong, nothing I can say or do will change that (and quite frankly I don´t care to do so as its not my place to impose my ideas on anyone else).  If I say (or illustrate) anything offensive or that speaks out against an idea, you have the full right to be offended and tell me about it (I might or might not stop).  Because it is, in essence, my OPINION.  The fact that I think a certain way doesn´t mean I´m right (it doesn´t mean I´m wrong either), it means I have a viewpoint.  You can accept it, or not, thats your prerogative.

I’m rambling again, I wanted to talk al little about the illustrations that just came to my hands, and all because I have to say I’m not Charlie…  but I should be,  we all should be.  This is not a time to be gullible to some idiotic political and terror inducing tactics, its time to unite as the single humanity we are, its time to put our petty squabbles aside.  Stop the violence, stop the illogical hatred, stop the nonsense.  We should all be transgressors, opinionated, we have a voice, it needs to be heard, ideally for the overall good of humanity (yeh I know impossible thoughts, so sue me I´m a hopeless romantic of sorts).

After venting all of that, I wanted to share one of the illustrations that came out of a night of odd meditation, on the plus side, I woke up quite calm.
