Trek & Gold: Picard

Like we did with Star Trek: Discovery, my podcast "Dreck & Gold" has been doing episode recaps for every episode of the first season of Star Trek: Picard.

For every one of those podcasts, I drew a cover illustration. Here are some of them:

Fauler Zauber - Comic Video

For the YIPPIE YouTube channel, Katja Klengel and I made a video version of my short kids comic "Fauler Zauber" from 2016 with music, sound effects and voices (in German):




JAZAM! vol. 11, where this story originally appeared, is unfortunately sold out, but our other kids issue "Schreckgeschichten" is still available at the Kwimbi shop.

The English version of "Fauler Zauber" ("Dirty Tricks") is on Tapas.

U.P.P.

I made this 6-page comic with Said Omar Eshaq in 2018 for JAZAM! Schreckgeschichten. He did the story & line art, I did the colors.






It's also up on Tapas.

Buy the whole book (theme: "Schreckgeschichten"/"scary stories") now at Kwimbi, Hummelcomic, or Amazon.de!

Stay at Home

My gf Katja Klengel & I recorded a song about social distancing / CoVID-19. Because some people just don't get how important it is, we trust in the catchy power of 'Let It Go' to educate you. So sing along and #StayAtHome!


We also made the cover illustration together. She drew herself, I drew Olaf/me & colored it.

Start || Finish

There's a new meme on twitter where artists are comparing their early sketches to the finished artwork. I did this for two pages from my comic "Die Toten: Isar Palace":



You can still get the book for just 12€ at any German comic shop or book store (please ask them to order it for you if they don't have it), or at KWIMBIHummelcomic, and Amazon.de.

Der Westworld Podcast - Season 3 Cover

I got to do another cover illustration for season 3 of this German "Westworld" podcast:


Because the official poster artwork for the new Westworld season didn't come out until I had already started working on this, I ended up doing two different versions of the background. Here's the first one that didn't end up being used:

#toonMe Challenge

There's a new art meme going around, where cartoonists and illustrators draw over half of a photo of themselves. I joined the fun:

RIVER'S EDGE Poster

Have you ever seen River's Edge? It‘s a bleak teen drama from 1986, and one of Keanu Reeves's first movies. For an upcoming special screening presented by my publisher Zwerchfell, I got to illustrate this poster:

Club 19 Season 2 Podcast Cover

Two years ago, I already did a podcast cover illustration for season 1 of the German Stephen King podcast Club 19. Now, they're in the middle of season 2 and I got to do a new one.

Here's the square version:


There's more to it, though! The Club 19 guys made a physical notebook as a reward for their Patreon supporters, for which I drew matching front (left) and back (right) covers. Have a look:

2020, Fuck Yeah! Calendar

It's become a beloved yearly tradition for me to draw an illustration for Schlogger's "Fuck Yeah!" calendar.

This time, I used some background characters I had recently designed for a kids' comic project, and painted them in a style I hadn't really tried before. Here's the result:


You can order the calendar now at Kwimbi (maybe together with my Die Toten comic and/or the new JAZAM?): ORDER HERE

The calendar contains lots of wonderful illustrations from 60+ talented German cartoonists & illustrators. Here's the cover by Susann Hoffmann:

Die Toten: Isar Palace

Some of you may have already gotten one of the small run of advance copies I had with me at Comicfestival München & Comic Con Germany in June, but for everybody else, my new book "Die Toten: Isar Palace" is officially coming out this week! After working on this for almost five years, I'm so happy people are finally getting a chance to read it.

I already got my author's copies:


The book is a new installment in the award-winning German zombie comic series "Die Toten". Unlike previous books in the series, mine contains just one standalone story and doesn't require you to know any of the others.

For more information, check out the interview I gave for Zwerchfell Verlag's website. Here are some sample pages:


You can get the book starting tomorrow for just 12€ at any German comic shop or book store (please ask them to order it for you if they don't have it), or at KWIMBI, Hummelcomic, and Amazon.de. I'd much rather you support your local comic shop or independent online retailers like Kwimbi than the big A, though.



If you want a signed copy, you can get that directly from me. Just send me an e-mail!

VIDEODROME Poster

For an upcoming special screening presented by my publisher Zwerchfell, I was asked to illustrate a poster for one of my favorite movies of all time, David Cronenberg's VIDEODROME.

I made two versions of the poster - one for the event at Harmonie & Cinema in Frankfurt on October 09, 2019, and a "neutral" version just for me.




You can buy a print of the first version at the event. The proceeds go to Sea-Watch!

Here's just the ink drawing:


And just the drawing of Debbie Harry from the tv screen:
