me more about the drawings in the Daily Horoscope!
The German artist Gerda Madl Kren did the pen-and-ink drawings and collages, all in 14 x 7 cm format for the Personal Daily Horoscope. We added a slight colour tone for the web application, the originals were all in black ink and scanned in dithering mode.
The artist created a huge collection of images. Our (then) staff member Klaus Köhler associated the drawings with the actual transits. It is not a totally fixed association, but there is a certain random element imbedded in the programming which image is selected from the list of image candidates for each text. A balance is made so that there are few image repetitions in the course of the year. A different person with the same transit might get a different picture.
These images have been designed especially for Astrodienst and are not published otherwise.
In the autumn of 2010, new colour images have been added, created recently by the same artist. In the average, about six colour images appear every month for a given person, but there due to the complex selection process which contains semi-random factors, higher and lower frequencies are possible.
Those who do not like the new colour images can disable them via the profile preferences.
