I like to announce my new Designer Website - and my recent signature label on VIDA is part of it - but you also find my Zazzle and Pixels designs there.
All my designs are under one umbrella:

Ich bin fassungslos und zutiefst erschüttert - habe einen guten Freund verloren,
bin sehr traurig
RIP liebe Isabella Bogner-Bader
I am stunned and deeply saddened - have lost a good friend,

Nie erfahren wir unser Leben stärker als in großer Liebe und in tiefer Trauer.
We never know our lives more than in great love and in deep mourning.

I just found this video on YT - to my surprise at 0:30 there is a photo of us together at her
"Lust und Laster" Vernissage
From 13th February to 8th May. Twenty panels and triptychs and nineteen drawings are making it the lagerest exhibition of Hieronymus Bosch in the Netherlands ever. The exhibition is a highpoint of the National Event Year Jheronimus Bosch 500 in 2016.
The Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch (Holland) will stage an exhibition dedicated to Hieronymus Bosch from 13 February to 8 May 2016. This major overview exhibition of the works of Hieronymus Bosch (ca. 1450 Den Bosch 1516) is based on extensive global research conducted into his relatively small oeuvre. Never before have so many works of the master been brought together in Den Bosch where they were made.
This is the first time in history that the majority of his returns work back to ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the town where he was born as Hieronymus van Aken, where he painted his masterpieces and from which he derived his stage name Bosch. The exhibition is the culmination of the National Event Year Hieronymus Bosch 500 which is celebrated in 2016, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the death of the artist.
Included in the exhibition is this little gem, only recently discovered:
A painting kept in storage at an American museum for decades has been revealed to be a work by Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch.
The newly uncovered painting has been lying forgotten at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, since it was acquired in the 1930s.

THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS
HORROR VACUI 2 PRINTED SHOES
Zazzle has now shoes again! So I designed a pair just to test the waters! I think they turned out good, don't you?
The sides of this shoe are a digitized coloring of my drawing 'Horror Vacui', which was then mirrored, while the back and tongue are also a digital rendering of my drawing 'Garuda Sanctuary'. Filling the spaces they are cropped. I believe they are certainly a show-stopper and quite different from any other. Chances are YOU may well be the only person in town (or even in your state) that owns such a pair! A truly exclusive design!
