Wanna buy prints?

For those of you who have waited hard for this opportunity: you can now buy high quality prints of my work from the website "Artflakes"! I hope you find something you like!


Every once in a while everybody should do a piece to honour the great H. P. Lovecraft. Here is mine for this month.
I haven't postet anything in quite a while now. This was because I was tremendously busy with my new comic book which is at the printers right now. As soon as the baby is out I will post some of the frames, so you people can see that I do not ONLY paint but occasionally struggle with more inky stuff too.

Degree Show

Midjune it was time for the 2010 graduates from the University of Westminster to finally expose themselves publically at the P3 on Marylebone Road, London. The pictures are taken by Bruna Volpi, who also has a sharp eye on the music industry, as you can check out here!

Electroconvulsive Therapy

Since 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' is such an exquisite book, here's another image that's inspired by it. The table for the electroshock therapy is described as cross-shaped in the novel, which seems a bit arbitrary, but at least it's a good excuse to do an electric crucifixion scene.

I did a series of paintings inspired by 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' (the novel). One of them came out surprisingly impressionistic. It is about the final triumph of McMurphy and his spirit's rise into freedom.

Reise, Reise

I am going to have a piece of work in an exhibition at the Chomley Boy's Club in North London in early May this year. It will be this handsome Navy officer who looks a lot like me ...
The whole thing will be organised by 100sqft, which is something you might want to check out at www.100sqft.co.uk!

A show of hands

I thought it might be nice to show the process of painting a rather laborious piece for once. This one is about Faust, the soul of whom is at stake in a wager between God and the devil.
The first image is the finished piece. The following pictures show how it came into being.

The Saviours of Western Cultural Values

While I'm at it: here is yet another piece about the problematic relationship of Austrians and non-Austrians. This was not done in Photoshop by the way. This is what the original looks like.

This is a little picture on the same subject area as "Food Fight".

My Website

I just wanted to let you know that my website is now up and running. Check it out under www.paulscheruebel-art.com!


I quite like the story of Kasparov and Deep Blue, in which a computer beat a world champion in chess for the first time. The mind versus the machine. Very dramatic.

Here is a possible book cover illustration for the novel "Kipps" by H. G. Wells

Demon Kingdom

This is inspired by Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian", which is an absolutely fabulous book.

The donor

Vladimir Propp wrote a morphology of folk tales, in which he describes central characters. One of them is the donor, whose appearance is both the threat of doom and the promise of reward. He looks about like this, I think.

Food Fight

If asked what the things are that cause tensions between Austrians and Turkish immigrants, then Austrians will often mention how they have to watch Turkish people fry mutton. I am very impressed how something that peddling can be elevated to such importance. So I just join in with those who make a big deal out of what is not a big deal by providing the visuals.

Save the eluphants!

This one is meant to give evidence of my expert knowledge about nature and wildlife. So: Save the eluphants!

Hello and welcome!

I thought in order to introduce myself I'd start off with a biometric approved self portrait. This is how serious I look.
