I'm happy to finally share some of the illustrations I created for the American online course website, GoSkills (check out GoSkills.com)! These particular illustrations were made for their course in Project Management. More to come!
Happy to finally show the poster and Facebook banner I was hired to do for the Absolut.-sponsored, weekly summer event "WednesGAY" at Jinjuu in LKF (Hong Kong). Though it came with a short deadline, this was a really fun project and definitely a little bit more saturated than my usual work. Special thanks to Winyee Lai at MobArt Gallery Ltd. for the excellent art direction, and my semi-agent, Shawn Griffin, for putting us together! The full banner can be found in my "posters/greeting cards" section from the home screen and on the event's official Facebook page.
Happy to announce that my front cover illustration for Southside Magazine (Hong Kong) is finally OUT. If you're on the island, be sure to pick one up, or, if you're more of a digital person, check out the online version here.
After a few too many people have asked me if my illustrations are for sale, I've now finally taken the time to open my Society6 online shop! Apart from prints (paper/canvas/framed), some illustrations can also be found on products such as iPhone/Android cases, laptop bags, mugs, etc. Soviety6 store: https://society6.com/andreasvonbuddenbrock
Putting a little color on some of my illustrations made from earlier times in Manila and Hong Kong. I was inspired to color my graphite drawings specifically after flipping through some of the pages of the comic book "The Goon" (look it up!) in the bookstore. The comic mixes graphite and ink illustrations and uses a slightly limited and less saturated palette, which I felt worked especially well with the graphite drawings - hence, why I decided to try something similar.
Just finished up the 3rd installment of my earlier-black&white-illustrations-turned-colorful project: Mong Kok at night (Hong Kong).
The next entry in the line of previous B&W illustrations that are getting a splash of colour: "Lan Kwai Fong"! More to come.
Sketching in Dubai Creek with a random guy looking over my shoulder. He first asks me where I'm from, then watches silently. When I'm done he says "I'm a painter" and walks away.
Currently in the process of adding color to some of my older B&W illustrations. This one in particular comes from a 5-hour-drawing-session last spring at "Father Knows Best" in Brooklyn, one of my favorite coffee shops/bars where I was living. More to come!
I recently completed an article for Altpick.com about my visit to Miami Art Week 2016 a few weeks back. Along with it are five illustrations that I made from the various exhibits, which featured artwork from Yayoi Kusama, Ugo Rondinone and many others. The (short) article also comes with a photo-gallery at the end. Check it out here!
My three illustrations from the protests that occurred in Union Square on November 10 (the day after the Presidential Election). The captions for each image can be found on my Instagram page!
Shortly after getting the news about Hong Kong, I found out that I am among the 19 artists whose work was selected for the "Slideluck Prague" exhibit on November 10. The theme for the show is "city life", hence my slideshow consists of drawings I made from my times in New York City, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
If you happen to be in Czech Republic on the 10th, do drop in!

I'm happy to announce that some of my work have been selected for the "Slideluck Hong Kong III" exhibit, which will be shown in Hong Kong on November 11. The slideshow consists of pieces from my "Hong Kong In Ink" series, as well as drawings that I did for Medium.com during the Umbrella Revolution protests. The show also includes work from a couple of my highly talented photographer friends, Shawn Griffin and Lorenza Brancadoro. Take a peek if you're in town!

Halloween invitations from start to finish (sort of). It's always fun using your own style while trying out something entirely new, and making invitations was definitely one of those things. Happy Halloween in advance, everyone!
Spent part of last Friday at The Met museum, focusing all of my sketching on the Egyptian section. I've decided to buy another sketchbook that will be entirely dedicated to ancient artifacts, where I'll put these drawings, among many others, along with some written descriptions. Will go back again soon to sketch some more!
I've been having this white pen laying around for ages, so I recently decided to put it into use. I bought a "tanned sketchbook", as they call it, and wandered around Bushwick in search of something good to draw. "Kapos Auto Repair" just happened to be the lucky winner. Now, it's really the first one of many in this style, so I couldn't expect it to be perfect. Will try to evolve this way of drawing as much as possible!
While in Hong Kong (back in June), I made sure to visit Café Sausalito in Sham Shui Po, which is owned and being run by a friend's friend. After having spent some time in the café, I was asked if I could help them draw a new mural on they're wall. Obviously, the motive had to represent the theme of the café - Sausalito in California. So, a few days later, I came back and did the job. I also helped them draw depictions of some of their menu items above the counter.
Afternoon sketching in Central Park.
So I found this sketch that I made a few years ago, back from when I ventured over to visit my friend in Singapore. I've been thinking about putting it somewhere on the website, but I just can't seem to find a good place for it... (I'd put it in the travel drawings, but as of now it might look a little off with another image, design-wise.)
For some reason, I recently started gaining an interest in drawing ships/boats. More to come!
