If you have a question then please read this because it may already have the answer you`re looking for. ^^…


I've been waiting quite a while to make this official. It's time for a fresh new start, so I'm going to move away from Hamburg, after 11 years, by the end of August. I'll stay at my family's place for the time being and then, once we find the perfect apartment, :icondodgermd: and me will move Vienna / Austria. Hopefully by fall / winter this year.

I've been thinking about this for a long time, Vienna has always been the only other city I had considered to live in. I'm sick of sitting in my one-room apartment all alone and :icondodgermd: feels the same.

For some reason the neighbourhood here has become increasingly worse in the last year. New neighbours above me, who apparently can't walk like normal human beings and love to be active until late at night. It's lovely when you wake up at 4am or can't fall asleep without earplugs because the elephants above you are stomping from one end of the room to the other. I've talked to them and they were pretty nice but they obviously just aren't able to be quiet.

I have the feeling every new neighbour who moves in is louder and more ruthless than the previous one. Hammering, drilling, loud music and loud talking really isn't unusual anymore. I can't remember the last night I have slept entirely without earplugs and even with those I can hear and feel the vibrations from the stompers above me or the noise from somewhere outside.

The reason why I decided to move back to my family first is that we already inspected several apartments in Vienna but all of them had to be taken right away. My current apartment has a cancelation period of 3 months. Since I can't pay double rent for several months I'll move back to Bavaria and look for an apartment from there, which is a lot more practical. I can travel to Vienna more spontaneously to inspect more places.

Hiring movers would be way too expensive so my Dad offered to transport my belongings with his car. Problem is I can't take the furniture with me and even without that I still got a LOT of stuff. I've been tidying out and selling a big part of my collection because I simply can't take everything with me.

I've been saving money for new furniture in my future apartment, which is actually cheaper than transporting my old furniture with a moving company.

But I still need around 1000€ for the mortage and additional 1000€ for brokerage ( it's really hard to find an apartment without brokers involved ). That's why I hoped for Eurofurence to be a success...well, so much for that. As some of you may know my friends and me didn't get a spot in the Dealer's Den and had to cancel the convention. I'll still travel to Berlin just for the art-show because I really hope it'll be worth it.

To earn enough for the move even without EF I'll sell sketches, prints, original art and magnets online sometime in mid-/ end of july.

However, the lack of profit from the Dealer's Den is a real a problem.

If you want to help and and feel generous I'd be really glad if you supported me on Patreon. Even if it's just one month. I don't like donations because I want to give people something in return.

For $1 you'll get high resolutions of all pictures I finished that month.

For $3 sketches, WIPs and progress-gifs.

For $5 photos and previously disclosed artwork ( only if available ).

Everything will be uploaded in a zip-folder once payments were transfered.


I apologize if I'm slow with responding to notes, but I'm really stressed right now. Until end of August I have to :

  • finish at least 10 more paintings for the art-show

  • draw magnets

  • prepare the online sale

  • sell the remaining things I can't take with me

  • cancel / change contracts

  • prepare the move

  • renovate my apartment

  • freelance work + temporary help at the supermarket

Your understanding, help and support is really appreciated. :hug:
