Radio Nukular Forscht

Popular German geek nostalgia podcast Radio Nukular are starting a new spin-off show called "Radio Nukular Forscht", and I got to illustrate the cover. The poster in the middle is going to be different every time, but the rest will be reused for all episodes.

Here's a look at my first sketch for it:

Die HNO-WG - Concept Art

I've got a cool new job: drawing concept art for Ralph Ruthe's movie based on his animated YouTube series "Die HNO-WG". The movie probably won't be out for a couple of years, but Ralph just shared a teaser trailer and my first piece of concept art:

This was Ralph's rough sketch:

The movie was co-written by Ralph and my "Orion" co-writer Haiko Hörnig.

ORION Pitch

In 2017, Haiko Hörnig and I wrote a spec pitch for a reboot of the German sci-fi classic "Raumpatrouille Orion". We wrote it just for fun, but it actually got us some interest and a meeting with a producer at Bavaria Fiction. Sadly it never went any further than that because of rights issues and competing projects at the same studio.

But maybe you'll enjoy reading it? I still think it's pretty good!

I designed a cover and logo for it:


And edited some actor photos to preview our cast of characters:

FRITZ!Box Character Designs

Before I drew the 5 episodes of my christmas comics for German wi-fi equipment manufacturer AVM, I had to design the main characters. 

AVM had already done a live-action ad with them, but I got to determine how they looked as comic characters. First, we had to find the right style, so I drew three different versions of main hero Fritz Box: 

They liked version #2 best, and after some minor adjustments, I drew my versions of Power-Liene and Repeater-Pieter:

I hope I get to draw some more comic adventures with this trio in 2021!

FRITZ!Box Advent Calendar

I got to draw a fun series of superhero comic strips for Berlin-based wi-fi equipment manufacturer AVM. There’s going to be one episode for every week of December and an extra one for Christmas - here’s the first one

The comics are part of their advent calendar, which comes with cool daily prizes! For this, I drew an illustration of the Fritz!Box heroes (aka 'The AVMgers') in holiday garb:

I can't show you the other projects I'm working on right now, but what I can show you are some of the new podcast covers I've been drawing for Eve Jay's & my Star Trek podcast Trek & Gold.

Right now, we're discussing Star Trek Discovery season 3, for which I've drawn these:



Before that, I did some more Lower Decks covers like this one:


And for our Patreon, I drew a couple of Lower Decks-style portraits of our patrons:

Trek & Gold: Lower Decks

Eve Jay and I are once again podcasting about Star Trek - this time it's about the brand new animated comedy show "Star Trek: Lower Decks", which I'm enjoying a lot. In our first new podcast, we talk about the first two episodes: Trek & Gold 59

For this, I also drew a new cover with the two of us as Lower Decks characters:

If you, too, want to become a Lower Decks character, you can get your own LD portrait on our Patreon.
