Paris Sketchbook by Miss-Belfry
Paris Sketchbook
Last month we went on a course trip to Paris for 5 days. It was my first time there and a wonderful experience.
I recorded most of my impressions and observations in my sketchbook and felt as if I was seeing so much more by doing so because drawing really does make you look in different ways.

It was pretty cold so I had to adopt a relatively quick way of working which really helped to loosen up my drawing and had a greater impact on my overall drawing approach than I could have anticipated. It certainly helped me to value the act of drawing much more than the final outcome.
I really want to do more trips like this very shortly!

I hope you enjoy this look into my Paris sketchbook, for a more complete insight please visit my blog! :)

What is 'home'? by Miss-Belfry
What is 'home'?

The theme for my self-initiated final major project is 'home'.

I am very interested in people’s various notions of that term so it would be very helpful if you could spare a few seconds to write down your personal definition of what ‘home’ means to you. Try not to think about it too long or look at what others wrote down – I’m really looking for the very first thing that comes to your mind.

You can either leave a comment under this picture or send me a private message. English and German is both fine.


I’ll go through all of them later and chose a few to illustrate as part of my project so by sending your quotes you give me permission to reproduce them in my final outcome, accompanied by your name of course. Everyone whose quote I’ll end up using will receive a free copy of the final printed book.

I’m looking forward to see what you come up with. :)

Thank you in advance!

irgendwo im nirgendwo - Preview by Miss-Belfry

Printed copies available in English and German in my Etsy shop.
Or simply drop me a note if you don't want to sign up there.


For my latest University assignment I have been creating a short graphic novel.
These are the first ten pages of it.
It is based on a poem I wrote more than 6 years ago. Naturally it has changed a lot during that time but it's something I've always wanted to illustrate in one way or another and I'm glad I finally got the chance to do so. It's become quite dear to me.

For this project I wanted to explore the complex narrative potential of graphic novels. 
The combination of verbal and pictorial elements gives way to multi-layered, paradox structures that can be employed by the storyteller to deliver ambiguous and sophisticated narratives that affect the reader on several levels. 
Words and images have been interwoven to create a tension out of which the narrative emerges. The aim was to challenge the reader to make an effort and process verbal and visual information at once in order to extract meaning. Thereby they will in a way write the story themselves by using their own memories and experiences to which the graphic novel serves as an emotionally charged stimulus.

For more information on this project and some work in progress see my blog.

I hope this will be of interest for some of you!
all the best,
