The PDC project
After drawing over magazine pages and my own photography in the past, I have started PDC *, a new project featuring collaborations with photographers. For this I invite artists to participate whenever their work strikes me as something unique and special and where the original image compositions tempt me to continue or alter these stories with pen & ink.
PDC will be released as a book and exhibition once completed in Fall 2014. First print editions are already available through the heliumcowboy online shop.
Photographers I've had the privilege of working with so far:
Book & Exhibition | Fall 2014
This will be an ongoing project that I will continue along the road, accompanying my main body of work. I will post the results of these collaborations here, and once I close this project the complete series will be published in a book by GUDBERG Verlag and shown in an exhibition accompanying the launch of the book, presumably in fall 2014 together with heliumcowboy artspace Gallery.
Print Editions and Original Art | Sales
Available right now will be limited editions of 5 prints from each finished photodrawing through the heliumcowboy online shop. Each image is printed at highest quality on Hahnemuehle Fine Art Pearl paper, 285 g/m, at 20 x 30 cm / 7,8 x 11,8 inches, using premium K3 pigment print with a total of nine different inks that ensure even the smallest details are visible and the colors appear freshly printed, even after 100 years. For more information and for ordering prints please visit the online shop or contact the gallery.
The original artworks are all of the same format (20 x 30 cm / 7,8 x 11,8 inches) and will be for sale at the exhibition later this year (for now, please address potential purchase inquiries directly towards the gallery via firstname.lastname@example.org, early reservations may be possible, but I want to keep the originals together for the exhibition).

If you want to keep up to date with this project, you can easily stay in touch by checking back to this site, following me on facebook, instagram, tumblr or by subscribing to the heliumcowboy newsletter or twitter.
* PDC might stand for PhotoDrawingCollaborations. But it is also short for 'pyroclastic density current', which kind of matches my approach in drawing over those photos (check wikipedia) ...
