INKtober 2016

Once again, I joined the INKtober challenge, which meant I had to do one ink drawing a day through all of October. I finished two days late, but I did complete all 31 drawings, and I had a lot of fun doing it. Unlike last year, I had a theme, which was "Horror Movie Villains." See all of them here:


Have a look at each individual drawing on my tumblr: 01-04 05-08 09-12 13-17 18-22 23-27 28-31

Kunstgeld

For a party at Keller Club in Berlin-Neukölln, I illustrated these FAK€ banknotes:



The party is TONIGHT! I'm not quite sure how it's gonna work, but I believe we'll do some fun money-related things with the screen printed notes, and you'll be able to get signatures and drawings from me and the other artists, David Koslowski and Gregor Stiebert.

Also, it's my birthday, so I'm gonna do some celebratin' there. WOO-HOO!

Palms in Sorrow

This Sunday, I'm doing another Reading Panels comic reading in Dresden. This time, we're reading one of my favorite German comics, "Das UPgrade" by Sascha Wüstefeld and Ulf S. Graupner. In the comic, there's a fictional song called "Palms in Sorrow", which I recorded for the reading. Here it is:


The reading is on Sunday, October 9 at 7pm at Thalia Kino Dresden. Here's the Facebook event!

Artjom Wessjoly

A little while ago, I got the very cool job to draw a realistic portrait of Russian poet Artjom Wessjoly for an upcoming new edition of his work at Aufbau Verlag. Here it is:

Backyard Shootout (2017, Fuck Yeah!)

Once again, I was asked to be part of Schloggers annual "Fuck Yeah!" calendar, which collects cool illustrations from many of Germany's finest cartoonists and illustrators (and me).

I tried a out a new technique with this sunny illustration for the first week of August:


Here's my sketch for it:


The calendar contains wonderful illustrations for every week of the year and this cool cover by Beetlebum:


Do you want one? Just shoot me an e-mail! (price: 20€ - free shipping inside Germany)

You can also pre-order a copy at Kwimbi (where you can also see some of the other illustrations).

Dreck & Gold - episode 01

I have a podcast! A few days ago, David Koslowski and I recorded the premiere episode of "Dreck & Gold". On the podcast, we talk about movies, tv shows, comics, and other nerd stuff. It's all in German.

You can listen to it on Soundcloud and on iTunes. Please subscribe, rate & review!

Here's the cover image I drew for it:


We're probably gonna do one of these every week now.

The Bomb Technicians

I've published almost all of my JAZAM! comics on Tapastic, and now we're getting to the really old ones! This comic was first published in JAZAM! vol. 3 (topic: "Time") in 2008. Click on the first page to read the entire comic:



I have to admit that I don't like this one very much anymore, but maybe some of you are gonna find something to enjoy here?

You can buy the book right here: JAZAM! Shop

Over the next couple of months, I'm going to publish my remaining JAZAM! comics on Tapastic and here. Stay tuned!

Livestock

This comic first appeared in JAZAM! vol. 4 (topic: "Monsters") in 2009, and now I've colored the whole thing, translated it into English, and put it online for the first time ever!

Click on the first page to read it in English at Tapastic:



Or CLICK HERE to read it in German at MyComics.de

It's probably one of the most political (and cynical) comics I've done. How do you like it?

JAZAM! vol. 4 is no longer available, but you can get most of our other issues in our shop.

New game stuff

Over the past year, I've painted a couple of graphics for the browser-based strategy game "Aloha: Paradise Hotel". Here are a few of them:






You can play the game for free right here: PLAY ALOHA


Also, I recently made some item graphics for the current 2-year anniversary event of Angry Birds Epic:


They're still adding new content to that game, and I think it's really fun!

A House Divided

In Erlangen, Katja Klengel and I did a short comic reading for an event called "B1tst0rm", where artists were supposed to read some of their favortite webcomics (by other artists). We decided to read a A House Divided short story by Haiko Hörnig & Marius Pawlitza, a great fantasy comic that recently came out as a book. To spice things up, I drew this additional prologue using my Hipsters characters:



This is Katja & me reading the comic:



By the way, I also drew this piece of fan art for the comic's creators' recent birthdays:

24HCD April 2016

Some cartoonist friends and I got together this weekend to do one of our two annual 24-hour comic marathons. Studio Fizbin graciously let us use their basement at Saftladen Berlin.


During the 24-hour period, I continued to work on a comic that I'd started at our last event in October 2015. I only got 12 pages done this time (a bit of a disappointment), but in total, I'm at 31 pages now! I'm still gonna need 20-ish more to finish the story, though.


Read my other 24h comics here at Tapastic!

JAZAM! Vol. 11

The new volume of German indie comics anthology JAZAM!, of which I am an editor, is almost here! The topic this time is "Adventure" and the whole book is designed to be suitable for all ages. I myself drew a 9-page comic called "Fauler Zauber" for it. Here's the first page:


The book contains 320 pages of full-color comics by 51 different artists. I think it's our best volume yet and a lot of fun! There's a 16-page preview on MyComics.de.

Here's the wonderful cover by Natalie Dombois:


You can now pre-order the book at our online shop and you'll be able to buy signed copies at all of my future festival and con appearances, most importantly at Comicsalon Erlangen in late May.

Reading Panels: "Als ich so alt war"

For the past year or so, I've participated in a number of comic readings in Katja Klengel's "Reading Panels" series. Some of them have been readings of my own comic, Hipsters, others were readings of other artists' comics, which I just joined as a voice actor.

One of the most recent ones was a reading of Katja's great graphic novel "Als ich so alt war" in Dresden last December. This one was special because it contained several songs (which Katja and I performed live) and some live kalimba music. It was also the first one that was filmed in its entirety. See the first part here:



And see the other nine parts RIGHT HERE.

The next reading will be a compilation of several short comics by Katja, Tim Gaedke, Matthias Lehmann, and me at the Schauburg in Dresden on May 22, 2016.

ComicInvasionBerlin Podcast

Two weeks ago, I was a guest on the official podcast of ComicInvasionBerlin, one of my favorite smaller comic festivals in Germany. I talked to Lara and Carlos about JAZAM!, Hipsters, my other comics, and the festival. It was pretty fun! LISTEN HERE. You can also find it on iTunes.


JAZAM! is once again going to have a table at this year's ComicInvasionBerlin on April 16/17, where you'll be able to meet me most of the time.

Animals


I was very busy with work in 2013, so I wasn't able to draw a comic for JAZAM! vol. 8 (topic: "Animals"). Instead, I contributed this illustration.

I don't think I'd ever shown this one online, but now I've posted it on Tapastic with my JAZAM! stories.

You can buy the book right here: JAZAM! Shop

Monster Doodle

"Monster Doodle" is a new book of funny "finish the drawing" illustrations, which is coming out this week from Delfinium Prints and Comic Solidarity. My pal David Füleki edited the book and painted the cover, and I contributed two pages. Here's one of them:


You'll be able to buy the book at the Leipzig book fair / Manga-Comic-Con this week. (Unfortunately, I won't be there.)

I'm sure it'll be available on Kwimbi soon, though, and we'll definitely have a few of them at ComicInvasionBerlin next month.
