fresh, new space

it´s done, friends - the pink wall has gone forever. Thank you for all your colour suggestions. But we thought after all the colour experiments in the other rooms, the studio has to be clean white. Even myself feels more fresh in this new, airy space.

Take a look at our new "oops-we-did-it-again" creatures. I think we will publish regularly a "oops-we-did-it-again-post", as there seems to be no chance for us to concentrate on more "profound" or "serious" work over a longer period. So here is the second "oops-we-did-it-again":

we called this creature "Schleichplotz" after a story written by Ottfried Preussler (original name of this robber is "Hotzenplotz"). I don´t know if "Hotzenplotz" is known in other countries than Germany. But if so, I would be very interested how he is called in your country. Now, I have to go back to work. There is still a lot to do until sunday (REMINDER: open studio from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. !!!!!)! Kisses, Friederike!

also den Hotzenplotz gibt es in ca. 34 Sprachen übersetzt, allerdings glaube ich das Hotzenplotz überall gleich heißt, es ändert sich nur das Wort Räuber zB. Robber, sollt es Dich interessieren wo man es überall lesen kann, guckst Du hier

Dear Friederike!

The pink wall has gone "forever"?
Look out! Nothing is carved on stone!

Kisses, yours Mabel

Studio looks great. Do like the pink wall too though but I can see how you were probably "over it ". Love the old photo with all the small canvas' on the wall.
Are the pirate looking guys printed???

It look great! Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday yeah?

Love the new creatures (I was going to attempt to write their name, but it's too complicated for me to remember!) - they look great!

You can't beat the white.

I don't know which I like better, the word 'hotzenplotz', or the dolls themselves.

That's one crazy word.
