There's also a German version.

Hipsters Facebook illustration


I drew this for the Hipsters facebook page, which has recently crossed 100 "like"s.

The new comic is still in the works btw. I didn't get to it earlier because I caught the flu and have been sick for over a week.

HIPSTERS webcomic 017

To read the whole storyline (up 'til now) in the most comfortable way, head over to the official Hipsters website: http://www.hipsters-comic.com/

That's also where you'll find the German version of this most recent strip.

Not much to say about this one, but I hope you enjoy it. The German version can be found over here.

HIPSTERS webcomic 013

I had to pause the comic for a week 'cause I was really busy with my internship and a bunch of other stuff, but now I'm back with a new Hipsters strip. As usual, there's a German version, too.

Happy Halloween!

I don't have any recent Halloween-themed illustrations or comics (although there will be a brand-new Hipsters strip tomorrow morning), but I do have some cool photos of my Halloween costume. I've always wanted to dress up as a zombie and have been especially zombie-crazy lately in anticipation of The Walking Dead tv show, so I made my dream come true at a Halloween party last night. Here's what I looked like:



There are some additional photos on my facebook profile.

Some zombie comics of mine:

Hipsters vs. Zombies

and so the lion fell in love with the LAMP

I made this strange little drawing as a birthday present for a friend of mine.

The story behind it is a bit complicated, so I won't tell it in detail. Let's just say that she's a big Twilight fan and that there was an unfortunate spelling error involved.

As usual, there's a German version on the official Hipsters website.

HIPSTERS webcomic 003


Monday is Hipsters day! Still on schedule, here comes the third Hipsters webcomic strip.

There is plenty of new stuff on the official Hipsters website, by the way, including a t-shirt shop and a FAQ section. So, check that out if you're interested.

And here's a link to the German version.

HIPSTERS webcomic 002


The second Hipsters webcomic arrives on schedule. The HIPSTERS website is almost finished, too, but I still need a little time to get a better hang of Comicpress.

HIPSTERS webcomic 001

I'm starting a new webcomic. If I can keep it going for a while, I'll probably build an extra site for it, but for now, I'm gonna post them here on the blog. The strip features the "hipster" characters I've previously used in Hipsters vs. Monsters and Hipsters vs. Zombies. This is the first one:


There's a German version, too.

Would you be interested to read more of this on, say, a weekly basis?

Wiesn-G'schichtn

I've already shown the pencil and ink versions of this panel from a new comic of mine. Now here is the colored version:


It's from a four-page comic for the anthology Wiesn-G'schichtn, which just came out. It's a nice large-format hardcover album with short comics by 18 different Munich-based cartoonists that all revolve around the Oktoberfest and its 200th anniversary this year. My story is about the terrorist attack on the Oktoberfest in 1980 and is scripted by Oskar Rauch. The whole project was initiated by Comicaze and published by Volk Verlag. It's now available in stores and at Amazon.de for € 16,90. You can also order a signed copy from me directly via e-mail.


UPDATE: The first review just went online at Splashcomics.de and it's positively glowing!

Sonny


After finishing up all of my BA stuff, I finally found some time again to do another one of my movie character portraits. This one's Sonny Wortzik from Dog Day Afternoon.

A little commission I did for some friends of mine. It's one of their professors as a superhero.

bachelor thesis & exhibition

I'm all done with my bachelor thesis now. Two days ago I received several copies of this good-looking hardcover book:


It's the first part of a longer graphic novel I've been working on for about a year now with my co-author Roman Senkl. This first part is 23 pages long, but the whole graphic novel is probably going to be at least five times that.

The title is "Die Anstalt" ("The Asylum") and it's a faux-documentary mystery thriller set inside a strange insane asylum.

Some of the comic pages can be seen on the illustration website of my university: HORROR VACUI (just click on my name in the list)

If you happen to be in Munich, you can see the whole thing at our exhibition this weekend. Infos about that at our official website.

second-to-last sound

Since only one of my two submitted cartoons made it into the Vorletzte Geräusche book, I can now show the other one here:

I actually liked this one a little better. (The book as a whole is very funny though and well worth buying)

Erlangen 2010


Only two more days until this year's Comic-Salon Erlangen, Germany's biggest comics convention, begins. (It goes from june 3 till june 6.) As regular readers of this blog may have noticed, I'm publishing quite a few comics there. You can find my stuff (and, sometimes, me) at the following booths:

JAZAM! (#41): JAZAM! vols. 2-5, JAZAM!'s "Nightshift" comicjam, my Hipsters vs. Monsters minicomic
Ferne Welten (#87): Ferne Welten #1
Delfinium Prints (#66): 78 Tage auf der Straße des Hasses Sonderteil 1
Süßes und Saures (#39) / Mondfähre (#37): Vorletzte Geräusche

Find the booths on the MAP. Most of the time, I'll be at the JAZAM! booth.

Also, some of my artwork is part of the Comicaze exhibition at Café Moravia.

Hipsters vs. Def & Roy

If you thought I couldn't possibly publish any more comics at this year's Comic-Salon Erlangen, you'd be wrong. I drew another short comic for a special issue of David Füleki's extremely funny manga-influenced comic book "78 Tage auf der Straße des Hasses" (78 Days on the Road of Hatred). It's a crossover of my Hipster characters and the two protagonists of David's book. Here are the first few panels of it:


And the cover of the issue (despite the cover, it's not a porno):

Ferne Welten #1

Another comic book coming out in Erlangen is the first issue of the new science fiction magazine "Ferne Welten". It's an interesting project, publishing prose short stories as well as comics. The book has 68 pages and will cost 5 €.


It was first supposed to come out more than a year ago but was delayed until now. That's also why the comic I contibuted is already pretty old now. I drew it almost two years ago (originally for another magazine) and already showed the first page on this blog. Here's another page, though:

Vorletzte Geräusche

Besides JAZAM! vol. 5, a couple more books are coming out at the Comicsalon Erlangen 2010 that have some stuff by me in them. I'm gonna introduce them here one by one in the coming days.

The first one's "Vorletzte Geräusche", a cartoon book about the second-to-last noises that can be heard before someone gets killed. I contains cartoons by 50 different artists, including me.


Details: 96 pages, hardcover, b/w, 15 x 15 cm. Price: 10 €

JAZAM! vol. 5

Finally: the new volume of the great German comics anthology JAZAM! is ready for pre-ordering. It can be ordered at our online shop or bought at the Comicsalon Erlangen next week.
I contributed the 9-page comic "Hipsters vs. Zombies" and did the layout and design, as usual. The cover was painted once again by the talented Daniela Uhlig. Behold:

Faster Than Fiction

The online comic magazine INKplosion just published their third 'flash fiction' special. Said issue contains a comic with art by yours truly, written by Roman Senkl & Marco Müller. This is it:


Read the whole issue here. (in German) It contains some very nice pages by several of my fellow JAZAM! artists.

test pages

For about half a year I've been working on my first graphic novel, the first part of which is going to be my bachelor thesis. I haven't completely finished any actual pages, but I drew two "test pages" a few months ago to find a suitable style. A bunch of things have changed since then and the two pages will not actually be part of the comic, but I'd like to show them here anyway.

G.I. Joe

Last month, I inked this kick-ass retro cover for G.I. Joe Origins #15 (IDW). Pencils by Klaus Scherwinski, colors by Levin Kurio. It's my first U.S. publication!

ink panel


An inked version of the pencil panel I posted a couple of days ago. You'd be right if you guessed this has something to do with the Munich Oktoberfest, but I'm not gonna tell you yet what exactly this is for.

Next time: colors.
