Happy faces at the Hahnemühle booth of the international trade fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology. The caricatures of Illustrator Marc Robitzky gave the analytica visitors much pleasure. Long queues didn’t deter our guests. They queued up joyfully. Some models looked a bit unsettled hearing the comments during the creation of their caricature. However,…more
Martin Lucas, Print Manager from dStudio based in Little Clacton, Essex have very kindly shared their experiences of using Hahnemühle paper and canvas with us:
We’re a small fine art print studio serving (mostly) self publishing artists with prints of their artwork, illustrations and photographs. We started life a long time ago as a picture framers, the print studio was started in 2012 as we noticed the artists we worked with started to ask about printing and where they could get reproductions of their works produced. Nearly 4 years later and we’ve printed for 1000’s of artists from all over the world.more

I have a thing with square little sketchbooks. There are always a couple of them in my drawer. It happened to me once that I needed a new one and they had run out of them in my usual art supplies shop and I had to buy non-square one. Ever since then, when I go downtown, no matter what, I go to the shop and buy one or two (or three) of the Hahnemühle square sketchbooks. That is how I came to a little collection of square D&S Sketch Books by Hahnemühle.more

The story about Kröt & Schuhuu started during a lunch break five years ago. A turtle and a little owl experienced new adventures everyday on paper sheets of 8 x 10 cm. Around sixty short sketches resulted and were soon traded as motivational pictures among friends.
The idea came up to draw a family calendar with two of my friends. In 2012 we already printed 75 pieces and distributed them in our circle of friends, further years followed.
Draw your way to more peace and serenity with our YouTangle.art cards! For the creative break Hahnemühle now offers tangle cards – also called tiles – in a stylish metal box. Each box contains 25 cards of the perfect paper for the trendy, meditative drawing. The square tiles with rounded edges allow smooth, precise lines with fineliners and pencils. Tangle artists use also colored pencils, gel and brush pens and also ink markers.
The 9×9 cm cards are offered by Hahnemühle in a hands storage, metal box. The cards – painted or unpainted – are held like in a treasure box and are easy to carry. With YouTangle.art you can draw anywhere at anytime with a couple of pens.more

As an offshoot of the global Urban Sketchers organization the Urban Sketchers Chicago held the second Chicago Sketch Seminar on 11 and 12 July, 2015 at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts and the surrounding Gold Coast neighborhood. This two day seminar attracted participants from all around the Midwest as well as an international crowd with visitors from as far away as India. With 10 workshops taught by local Chicago sketchers, participants had a wide range of topics to choose from which allowed them to tailor their weekends to the specific skill sets they wanted to develop. From watercolor techniques, figure drawing, perspective drawing, marker techniques, to colored pencils and even incorporating text into a sketch, the weekend was filled with incredible learning opportunities.more
