■ notizen /// creative play time 17.01.2016 - 15:20 uhr



working on my every day life routines … a hard missed one for (too) many months: doodle play time … praise self-determination. and yes it took me a long, long time to get aware of it and to finally make changes within the next step.

bastisRIKE KRITZELEI dogs 2016

so this is one big goal for 2016 (to name a starting point and no final point): creative play time as a fixed part of my daily life.
i chose this.


i like to listen to podcasts while doodling:
the minimalists
profit power pursuit
creating your own path

■ notizen /// #bekind 15.08.2015 - 19:17 uhr

feeling kind of overstrained listening to the news through the last weeks and every day there are new stories about refugees seeking a better life while risking it on their run … stories about people who seem to believe they have the right not just to refuse to help but to act filled with hatred … forgetting that it’s just a fortunate coincidence to be born in a country like germany … #scaremongering everywhere … so I found an option to help in my city and packed a few welcome packages filled with hygiene articles which will be handed out to refugees who arrived in Leipzig yesterday. to be honest I don’t know if this really helps and yes, it’s a way to make me feel better as well. so what? I post this on my IG account knowing this could be understood as some kind of positive self-promotion. anyway I would like to encourage you to look out for your own way to help someone who is less fortunate than you … perhaps your neighbour, perhaps a refugee, perhaps a stranger you meet on the bus … #bekind …

und so reiht sich meine decke neben weiteren 59 finalisten in insgesamt 5 kategorien ein. darunter zum beispiel NAVUCKO., danadamki oder alexbender, bei denen ich selbst bereits gern zugegriffen habe. die liste ist lang und laedt zum stoebern ein.


nun seid ihr gefragt, denn neben dem preis der jury (etsy, ignant, couch und dmy) wird ein gewinner per community voting ermittelt. ich freue mich über jede einzelne stimme (klick!) und sage schon an dieser stelle danke!


aktueller hinweis: #thegridblanket wird ab anfang september wieder erhältlich sein!



bastisRIKE’s #thegridblanket got chosen as a finalist of the german/austrian #‎etsydesignawards‬


60 finalists to choose from … for example NAVUCKO., danadamki or alexbender, where I already shopped before. the long list invites to grub.


now it’s up to you, because next to the jury’s award (etsy, ignant, couch and dmy) a winner is chosen by community voting. I am happy for every vote (here) and say thank you!

current note: #thegridblanket will be back in stock by the beginning of september!

„Herman Melville said that artists have to take a dive and either you hit your head on a rock and you split your skull and you die or that blow to the head is so inspiring that you come back up and do the best work that you ever did,“ he says. „But you have to take the dive and you do not know what the result will be.“


replace ‚artists‘ with ‚people‘ if you like
