Dear fellow illustrators,
Our next Digital Creative Tuesday will be on Tuesday, March 13, at 8:00 pm on Zoom. Link in last Email Blast / Newsletter.
I’d love to see familiar as well as new faces there, and spend an hour with you talking about our art and all things illustration related. As always, we’ve set ourselves an illustration prompt. This time, it’s a nonsense poem by German poet Christian Morgenstern, ‘Das Nasobem’.

Auf seinen Nasen schreitet
einher das Nasobēm,
von seinem Kind begleitet.
Es steht noch nicht im Brehm.
Es steht noch nicht im Meyer.
Und auch im Brockhaus nicht.
Es trat aus meiner Leyer
zum ersten Mal ans Licht.
Auf seinen Nasen schreitet
(wie schon gesagt) seitdem,
von seinem Kind begleitet,
einher das Nasobēm.

Striding on its noses
there comes the Nasobame,
with its young in tow.
It isn’t yet in Brehm’s
It isn’t yet in Meyer’s
And neither in Brockhaus’
It trotted out of my lyre
when it came first to light.
Striding on its noses
thereon (as I’ve said above),
with its young in tow,
there goes the nasobame.

If this inspires you, I’d love to see your sketches, or some of us might even find the time to make a finished piece. If not, you’re also very welcome to join the conversation!
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with me (
Looking forward to seeing you then,
