The Harald Siepermann Archive wishes everybody a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Especially to Harald’s family, friends, former colleagues and followers.
The above design is a Christmas card that Harald Siepermann designed for the German city Goch in 2007. During that year Alfred J. Kwak was the mascot of that city and was used for various activities that the city organized. The little lion in the illustration is the weapon of the city Goch.
Below are several images that shows Harald’s approach for this design. Starting with a rough sketch, followed by a more defined blue pencil sketch of the individual parts of the illustration, with on top the final ink. Harald then continued in Photoshop, finalizing the composition, adding color, and some additional effects and text.
