Hello, world!

I do art for fun, so don't expect perfection.
In my real-life, I'm a computer scientist.
I chose crafting as a contrast to what I'm doing otherwise.

You can contact me in English, German, French or Spanish (though the latter might take me some time to respond :P)

If you'd like to trade artwork or make commissions please contact me.

I've done it again, I've traded art.
I sent messages to two people who make really cool knitted beard hats so I asked them whether they'd like to trade.
Drgibbs was asking for a steampunk style leather choker in return while NadsatBabushka wanted a key keyring.
I got very inspired by their ideas and finished both the pieces in September. I sent the one for Drgibbs from home and the one for NadsatBabushka from holidays.

I kind of forgot about it then and when I came back home, I found this gorgeous hat NadsatBabushka sent (Thank you very much again!). But no second parcel. I tried to get in contact but I couldn't reach Drgibbs anymore. Neither on her email address, nor her DeviantArt account or her etsy account - though her Etsy shop was busy during that time which most likely rules out the possibility of her sudden death..

It is always disappointing when you put so much love and effort into something and then the person just disappears. Yes, there are reasons why one can't finish an art trade because life gets in the way but at the very least you should tell the other person about it.

Still I will continue to do art trades and so far, more people have been honest. What are your experiences? Have you ever done an art trade? Were you pleased when you did? What did you trade? I'd be interested to hear your stories.

Hi Steffi,
hab eben erst Deine Nachricht gelesen. Freut mich, von Dir zu hören. Schöne Sachen zeigst Du hier. Dein totes Eichhörnchen ist recht makaber. Der Männerkopf sieht aus wie jemand, den ich kenne oder mal kannte - ich komm bloß nicht drauf, wem der ähnlich sieht.
geekySquirrel Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ja das Eichhoernchen war ein Halloween gag, ich hatte die Kette zur Arbeit an :) der Kopf ist mein Freund, aber u nsere Freunde finden ihn so ohne Koerper gruselig. Ich kann aber besser Koepfe :P
Liriel2006 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014
Na ja, so dauerhaft ohne Körper, das ist schon ein wenig gruselig. Vielleicht setzt Du den Kopf einfach auf so eine altmodische Schwitztonne, mit einem Handtuch um den Hals. Dann ersparst Du Dir die Mühe mit dem Körper und Deinen Freunden eine Gänsehaut. In einen Korb, wie sie vor der Guillotine standen, willst Du ihn bestimmt nicht legen.

Hehe :) Die Schwitztonne ist auch ne gute Idee. Ansonsten kann ich mir ja einen Schrumpfkopf a la Harry Potter an den Rueckspiegel im Auto haengen :P

Nice chokers.  I made a collar; got a few of it pictures on here.
geekySquirrel Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks. Yours looks much more professional while mine is more of a case-study/prototype.
floatyboaty Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's actually my first/only one.  On closer inspection it has some flaws.

As a side note, it hasn't been worn yet.  ;) (Wink) ;) (Wink)

It's never perfect and artists always have high demands for their own work.
I'm sure you can find somebody to wear it :)
