Hi there,
I'm Jasmin - I'm an engineer who loves pretty things,
above all butterflies and photomanips*.
I used to be the gallery mod for the photomanipulation category in 2006/07 and from Nov 2010 to April 2012.

* and chocolate of course, I almost forgot chocolate!
Please Note:
  • I often don't have much time during the week, so answers to comments and notes will be slow - I do read every single comment and I do try to answer all in a timely fashion, but sometimes it can take a week or two.
  • My artwork is not available for free and I don't do commissions.
    • If you want images you can drag through photoshop, feel free to take those available at kuschelirmel-stock.
    • If you like my work and want to share it, use the share buttons, don't repost!
    • If you want to use my artwork for a book cover, cd cover or the like, please contact me via note or email at kuschelirmel<at> and don't forget to tell me something about the project and its circumstances as well as which image(s) you are interested in - I will tell you the price for licensing one of my images according to the info I get from you, so be as specific as you can!
    • I'm sorry, I do not take commissions any more as it would not be fair to make you wait while I sort out my dayjob and other real life stuff -- if you think you are the exception because your project might interest me anyway, contact me and tell me about it. Just be aware that my time issues will not go away even if I do find your project to be the coolest there is...

Which of the following is your personal favourite? Is there something about it you'd like to know (technique, concept, idea,...)? It's for a project ;)

Thank You + Obituary - things that need saying

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 10, 2015, 5:31 AM
Thank you everyone who thought of me on my birthday! I got some beautiful gifts (see at the bottom). However, the 7th of January was not just my birthday this year, it was the saddest day France has seen since the end of World War Two.

12 were killed at Charlie Hebdo (as you probably all know by now) for drawing cartoons... those cartoons may have been offensive, but no matter how offensive they might have been, nothing can ever justify the actions of the three men. Not on that day nor in the aftermath, as even more people (including police & innocent bystanders) were killed during their attempt to flee.

My heart goes out to the families and to all of France and Europe. I just hope that the hatred will not spiral out of control and that there will be enough voices of reason to not let the likes of Marine Le Pen or Pegida rule us in fear!

To you, who think that everyone wearing a headscarf or looking arabic in some other way, is somehow a criminal, I say: YOU ARE NOT THE PEOPLE! You are not fighting for freedom, you are fighting to errect walls! You do not listen to reason, you just listen to those who tell you what makes you feel better. If you need to put someone else down to feel better yourselves, I pity you.

And if you are one of those who think shouting "Lügenpresse" (lying press) and "Volksverräter" (traitor of the people)  - both of which come straight from Nazi propaganda speak - while claiming to be "merely concerned citizens speaking their minds" I say: fuck off! If you want to be heard, first learn to have a discussion instead of blindly yelling lines not even the yellow press would touch.

A discussion, btw, is not people yelling their opinion across the street. It's people engaging with one another and actually listenening to the other person's arguments. And being able to provide proof instead of feelings.

It would be a sad day for Europe if we succumbed to this shit. The three perpetrators of the Paris attack are NOT representative of all muslims or all *insertgroupofpeoplehere*. We do not need Europe on lockdown, everyone in a cloud of fear. we are free and we will stay this way!


Nous Sommes Charlie - About humans and monstersIts not east vs. west.
Its not Christians vs. Muslims.
The IS claims to fight for Allah: but they quit being muslim. Every human not working for IS is persued a "demon" and a legal target.
They quit being religious.
They quit being human.

These terrorists did. Long ago.
No muslim, no christian, no bahai, no jew, no buddist, no hindu, NO HUMAN would do this. Theres a border. If we cross it we become something different. We become a beast and we will never turn human again.
Its not east vs. west.
Its not Christians vs. Muslims.
It is Human vs. Monsters.
We are human - if we believe in a god or not, if we are male or female or beyond, if we live in Island or Malaysia, if we eat vegetarian or not - we are human, we want this to be a better world.
We want equality - so everyone can life their dreams.
We want respect - and a chance to earn it.
We want peace - so the days of fear might be
