Jirō Taniguchi

I recently bought the so-called Louis Vuitton Travel Book "Venice" by Jirô Taniguchi and I must say: It´s simply marvellous! I´ve never seen so perfect architectural drawings of Venice. I particularly love his many watercolours of the sea surrounding Venice, they are of a superb quality. It also has a simple story line but basically it depicts the most famous places of Venice as seen by Jirô Taniguchi. The book invites you to quiet contemplation, I recommend it to all who are attracted to Venice and love beautiful drawings.

Karl Lagerfeld

"When I was a child I asked my mother what homosexuality was about and she said - and this was 100 years ago in Germany and she was very open-minded - 'It's like hair color. It's nothing. Some people are blond and some people have dark hair. It's not a subject.' This was a very healthy attitude." - Karl Lagerfeld

Last Monday, at the first drawing day of the nude drawing event at the "Galerie Nothburga" in Innsbruck, the nude model didn´t arrive. She had notified our supervisor Barbara via SMS that she couldn´t come because of an accident of her best friend. As Barbara couldn´t find a substitute in this short time she finally posed for the group, but not naked, of course.
