FDC Feldpost & Luftpost / new print set

"FDC Feldpost & FDC Luftpost" / print set by FLYING FÖRTRESS


Printed on unique original vintage "FDCs - First Day Covers" by

Deutsche Post/German Post (a thing from "stamp collecting").
Each print is unique due to the different stamps & designs of the FDCs!

 

The "FDC Feldpost Basic" edition comes in 4x different colors to choose from:
orange - grey - silver - blue / ...and has 1x original stamp on each letter.

 

 

The "FDC Feldpost Green" has a totally all-new green print colorway and is printed on FDCs with 2x or more original stamps on each letter.

 

The "FDC Feldpost Yellow" is printed on FDCs with 4x original stamps on each letter (the "rare and hard to find"-ones from stamp-collecting...)

 

 

Comes in a set with 1x individual "FDC Luftpost" print.


The "FDC Feldpost" prints will be sent well protected in an extra cardboard envelope/parcel.
The "FDC Luftpost" print will be sent seperately as a "regular letter by post" with new stamps, stickers & your postal address written by hand on it!
So the "FDC Luftpost" might carry some bend&bruises as it has been trough a Post-journey and tells an individual story then ;-)

The idea was to give those "deadstock collectors' letters" a chance to do their "duty" and become a real letter finally once in their life-time!

To help to fullfill their original destiny!

 

 

Sets containing:
• 1x "FDC Feldpost" print
• 1x "FDC Luftpost" print / sent seperately "by Snail-Mail/Post"
• "FDC Feldpost" prints: 4-colors silkscreen print (green colorway)
• "FDC Luftpost" prints: 3-colors silkscreen print
• size of each print: approx. 16,4 x 9,3 cm

R2D2 Troopers for charity

This little robot with a rose (and heart).


While the first "Star Wars - Jawas" related series of hand-drawinn Troopers was purely for my "personal consumption" (buying "LEGO Star Wars" for the kids&me to kill some time during lockdown no.2)...

...this first series of 10x "R2D2 Troopers" will raise money for charity!


All profit made goes to "Förderverein Winternotprogramm für Obdachlose" (shelter & warm food for Hamburg's homeless people during this freezy winter times).
So 100% of the brutto coins made with sales of these little robots will be donated!
VAT & PAYPAL-fee from all sales is on me — i will take that to make it a round sum! I will provide donation-receipt later then on my social media channel (see Instagram).
Thank you to help helping!
Bleep bleep!

UPDATE:

i just send the collected donation straight to the charitable society!


This is the first set of 10x drawings (plus 2x additional A.P.s extra / they have a few "weird extra ink" on it... test run... see photos). I made it a total series of 22 (... R2D2... you get it!). Not sure if i have the nerves & time to draw the missing 12x pieces... let's see. So you better grab it now to make sure you own it and you helped me to help! :-)

• original handdrawn artworks by FLYING FÖRTRESS
• alcohol-markers on 220g/qm Hahnemühle FineArt Aquarell D'Aqua paper
• size: 24 x 17 cm / approx. 9.4 x 6.7 inches
• signed by the artist
• edition of 22 / 10 available now

We made it!

We made it to the "Hall Of Fame"!

 

Thank you CLUTTER MAGAZINE for the "Designer Toy Award 2019"!

 

I love the "award"-figure design by Pete Fowler.

Indeed Fowler's and Jarvis' toys made me get into collecting vinyls years ago (and later designing vinyl figures myself).

And so does my little girl and so the award already made it her personal property in her room... :-)

Tigerschnegel King

„TIGERSCHNEGEL KING“

 

FÖRTRESS: "i am doing my first ever spring gardening in my new place and i am just coming across so many new and unknown things, plants and animals. The tigerslug/Tigerschnegel is a spiecies of the nudibranch/Nacktschnecke. But the kind of a „good slugs“ as the Tigerschnegel is predatory and cannibalic to the other „bad slugs“, eating their clutches and even whole slugs. It is a gardener’s sweetheart as it helps to protect your vegetable beds! #keepthemalive So beside the „tiger“ within its name this self-destruction within the slug breed also reminded me on the behavior of all the actors and their story in the #netflix documentary... somehow. So this is my today’s quick contribution to the trending meme hype... with a little Förtress twist!"

"Stay Home - Let's Puzzle" / solidarity art puzzle

"Rasselbande" by FLYING FÖRTRESS / limited art puzzle edition

w/ AFFENFAUST GALERIE Hamburg available online now.

 

"Dear Folks!

We have thought about how we can help in the current situation as a gallery.

Solidarity is the order of the day! In particular solidarity towards elderly people, towards people with pre-existing conditions and towards people who are marginalized in our society anyway, people who are homeless and people who have to flee.

Furthermore, we are aware that freelance artists in particular will have financial problems and of course we as a gallery also have to develop a plan to get through the next months.

So how do we manage to make sure that people stay at home, that we don't forget the poorest people in our society, that we can support artists and that we stay as a company?

WE PUZZLE!

We are currently in the process of having puzzles with art motifs produced*. In the beginning we have: Nychos, Okuda, Dopperdenk, Ana Bariga, Flying Förtress and Marc Burckhardt.

Each 1000 parts (63,3 x 47,5cm) - First Edition of 500 - 25€ plus shipping costs**

5€ per sold puzzle of the first edition will be donated to #leavenoonebehind2020.

Many thanks to the artists for the fast and uncomplicated realisation. Special thanks to KingDrips for the layout.

Take care of each other! Stay healthy!

* Due to the current situation there may be delays / difficulties in delivery. At the moment we assume that the puzzles will be with you in 2-3 weeks. Unfortunately, there is no faster way.
** Only one copy of each puzzle per order. - Pickup at the gallery not possible! - For logistical reasons each puzzle is sent individually."

New DIY/Blank Teddy Troops

Finally we gave the 3" DIY Teddy Troops a nice printed packaging box. We have those "little ones" back in stock online. Regular versions and also the spray-can variant ones.

 

And also we just released the brandnew 6" DIY Teddy Trooper! After a lot of request about a "bigger sized" Trooper specially for customizing jobs we decided to get it realized. It is not as big as the "classic" 10" Trooper because we wanted to have it a more handy size to either work/customize on it but also the "big brother" should fit in row with the small 3" ones.

 

It is like a big LOTR's "troll" is marching together with the small "orks"...

size wise.

 

All 3 DIY Troops are available NOW!

Blümchenkaffee

"Finally later today we gonna release some nice new stuff that we had been working on for quite a long time. I hooked up with my brother (my real brother, not one of those hundreds "brother from another mother" graff buddies... no, my brother from my mother! ha!) to bring you some great cross-over things from both of our personal passions. Together we started our journey into graffiti back then when we were younger and we've been through some crazy good times! Stories & memories! While i kept going further into graffiti and art on my side, my brother turned into a dedicated coffee-ista. Roasting his own little company's coffee beans and running the neat coffee manufactory Markt 11 in the city of Jena/Germany. In the past i already did a lot of design work for his company but now we did a equal colaboration as a true family thing.

I couldn't stand to call the whole project "Blümchenkaffee". A German expression that is like the worst credit for a cup of served coffee. It's an old-fashioned term for "a very thin coffee". So extremely thin that you could see the "Blümchen" (floral) decor on the bottom of the porcelain cups...
Always thinking things from the other side... " FLYING FÖRTRESS

Later today we gonna drop all those new items here and on Förtress' brother company website: www.markt11.de
