Jawolla. After I won a ballon trip when I was 12 years old (never joined it by the way) I just found out about my second prize won in my life. I won a “Auszeichnung” (award) at the german creative competition ADC (Art Directors Club) with my illustrated tool for IKEA “Stoff fuer deine Phantasie”. Even though I am doing something else right now, its a good feeling though that my time as a graphic designer bore fruits now and I can announce to have at least one award.
On top of that I am happy and further confident in life and my situation. Even though my girlfriend went back to the states, I feel happy knowing her and everything makes sense in life anyways. She knows that as well as I do. I am based in Nanjing now as you can see on my new website as well. www.pflock.com . I am working as a teacher for English and German here and do my exhibition soon, which is fun. I practice as much as I can my characters and learn how to understand this language. Its great, yes. And especially in these days when I hear foreigners outside taking about China, that there would be no desire at all to visit this “evil” country. I love it. I love China. Yes. Maybe because I am interested in the people in general and not only in the country’s way of leading it. And as a German saying says: you shouldn’t throw pears and apples into the same basket. The people are great in China.
I hug you all, miss and love you.
