|"Hidden Art" combines my love for animals, nature and comics.|
How many animals do you see?
Hi again, everybody!
Here are a few news and announcements:
Jelka and I collected some wonderful entries for our Hydra design contest already, but there’s still a lot of time (by August 31) for more people to create their own pet Hydra and take the chance of winning their lovely designs as a posable art doll handmade by my skillful sister!
Read all about the contest here: rieke-b.deviantart.com/journal…
I’d be very happy if you visited or joined my new DA group which I created not only for the comic Jelka and I are working on, but also to feature awesome cartoon animal art from all over DA (both originals and fan art). I hope for the group to become a lively, friendly place for people who love cartoon rodents and dynamic, interesting stories about other animal heroes and their allies/opponents.
Jelka and I are very proud of our new art doll, the Pegasus Dragon. I painted the face, wings, head feathers and hooves. What do you think?
Here’s an amazing trailer for a new documentary about one of the most important subjects in the world: Food and the problems of industrialized agriculture. The documentary is called “Food Choices” and I’m pretty sure that it will change the views of many people.
Please take a little time and watch the full trailer. This huge topic concerns us all.
Do you use Facebook? I’ve been skeptical towards it for a long time, but now I think it can be useful to spread information. I’d really like to share some important and interesting things there with more people. I also submit a few nice animal photos there now and then which can’t be seen anywhere else on the web.
So, if you’re also interested in food, protection of animals, conservation, politics, good entertainment and could use one more friend, I’d be glad to get in touch. (Some of the things I share there may be written in German, though.)
So far, so good…

Knowledge follows the will to change...
Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m mainly self-taught, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.
I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house.
My older sis, Jelka , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.
Jelka is also a great author and comic artist and helped me to improve most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together.
I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway.
Interests: caring for my pets (2 dogs, 1 cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan food
