This isn’t Good Bye

No, really, it isn’t!

You guys,

For a long time I made quite a difference between Jessica the animator and Jessica the fine artist. Somehow I wasn’t able to bring these two aspects of my work together. It took a whole year of shows, exhibitions and screenings to sort this stuff out. Life happens. It’s complicated even though it’s amazing.

from my sketch book: tubes (2012)

Right now there is no gap between all the things I do anymore. I am an artist, and whether I do animation or drawing or creating paper objects, it’s still me who is doing this.

When I started this blog in 2008, I wanted to document my journey in animation, and to tell you about the process of making my animated short, Ins Dunkel (engl. Into the Dark). I did this, and you responded kindly and I was always glad to have you around. I separated my animations from my other artworks by having a blog about animation here and my online art portfolio on another website though.

To make a long story short: the blog moved over to my portfolio site, and they won’t be separated any more: You’ll find everything I do now on jessica-koppe.de. No more hiding, no more multiple online personalities! Jeez, how I love that new site!

If you reed this blog via rss feed, you may want to change the feed url: the new blog’s feed is

http://jessica-koppe.de/category/blog/feed

 
and in a few weeks I’ll also change this blog’s feed into that address in case you missed this information.

This blog will remain online since it’s a documentation of a long process, and since there are still some pretty good resources here. Just crawl through all the posts if you have a spare Sunday afternoon or so! I’m going to close the comments on this site after a while, but if you feel the need to say something, just drop me a line!

I send you all much love, and hope to meet all of you again on the new blog!

All the best,
– Jessica
