HIPSTERS webcomic 062

Finally, there’s a new comic once again! Sorry for the long break, I had some health problems and a bit of christmas-related stress. Now that that’s all over, I can finally get to drawing again, and here’s the result.

In case you’ve forgotten what’s happened before, you can read the dinosaur storyline from the start RIGHT HERE.

HIPSTERS webcomic 060 & 061

I was away last week, so I didn't get to posting the new strip then. That's why there's two of 'em today:

Tell me: Do you like the bros from the future? Do you wish there was more hipster-related humor and less time-travel weirdness? Or do you think time travel is deck?

HIPSTERS webcomic 057 & 058 & 059

I forgot to post the last two weeks' Hipsters strips on this blog, so now there's three new ones today:

Whoa, now there are ALIENS! …no, wait… what?! This is getting just a teensy bit crazy, isn’t it? Well, what did you expect from a comic called “Hipsters Vs. Dinosaurs”? Speaking of which, you can jump back to the beginning of the current storyline RIGHT HERE.

Beetlebum guest comic

Yesterday, this guest comic I drew for Beetlebum went online. Above is the English version, the German version can be found over at Jojo's blog. There are also plenty of other great guest comics by some of Germany's finest cartoonists. Enjoy!

HIPSTERS webcomic 056

Huh. Seems like dinosaurs are actually huge dicks. Who knew?
By the way: If you like this comic (ironically or otherwise), why don’t you share it with your friends on facebook/twitter/google+/tumblr/whatsit? It’s still plenty obscure, I think we can afford to spread the word a little.

HIPSTERS webcomic 055

This one’s a little late, it took me a while to get all the dinos in panel 2 right. Also, I had to finish a guest comic for Beetlebum. (it’s not up yet)

HIPSTERS webcomic 053

Phew, I’m kinda glad I’m not gonna have to draw that shirt anymore. It’s actually one of my favourite shirts, but it takes a loong time to color.

Maybe you’ve already seen it on Facebook or Twitter: my comic “Hipsters Vs. Monsters” has been selected for this month’s MyComics contest. You can vote for it once every 24 hours: Click here! I’d appreciate it!

HIPSTERS webcomic 052

The meta just won’t stop! Now I am starting to get a headache. No, wait… that might still be the rest of the hangover I had from drinking all that beer at the Munich Oktoberfest. (I only went there ironically, of course.)

This one right here is actually the 50th Hipsters strip. (not counting guest strips) But anniversaries are totally overrated, anyway...

Punchdrunk guest art

A couple of months ago, I drew a little guest illustration for Doppeltim's "Punchdrunk" webcomic. It now appeared as a poster in the background of his most recent installment. Check it out:

The whole comic (as well as Tim's other comix) is well worth reading - as long as you understand German.

HIPSTERS vs. Monsters (online)

If you've been reading this blog for a long time, you might know that I published a little comic book called "Hipsters Vs. Monsters" in 2009, which was the first in my series of Hipsters comics that turned into a webcomic about a year ago. Since the print edition of the minicomic is no longer available, I have now translated it into English and uploaded it at the Hipsters website. Check it out!

There's also a German version online at

guest comic for FLAUSEN

This is a guest comic I made for Ulf Salzmann's Flausen blog. I wasn't required to use any of his characters, it just had to fit with the theme "burnt out".

HIPSTERS webcomic 046

In case you’re wondering where you can read the zombie episode Tom is referring to, it’s called “Hipsters Vs. Zombies” and was published a little over a year ago in vol. 5 of JAZAM!, which you can order here. Unfortunately, there is no English version yet, but I’m probably going to translate it and put it up on the web at some point in the near future.

hipster money

A few weeks ago, my writing buddy Roman Senkl organized some kind of crazy art performance/party with Theater Koblenz. At the party, people were handed out these Hipsters-themed fake dollar bills I illustrated:

Comicfestival München and JAZAM! vol. 6

Tomorrow, the Comicfestival München 2011 is going to start. It's going to go on for four days and I'll be there the whole time, signing various comics at the booths of JAZAM! (34), Comicaze (41), Weildarum (32), and Volk Verlag (13). (map of the festival) Most of the time, you'll probably find me at the JAZAM! booth. Some pencil drawings for my "Wiesn G'schichtn"-story are part of an exhibition at the Bier- und Oktoberfest-Museum.

My biggest new publication for the festival is definitely JAZAM! vol. 6, which I edited and layouted. It also contains three full-page illustrations by me and a 10-page collab comic with David Koslowski. I wrote the story, he drew the pencils, I inked, shaded, and lettered it. Here's the first page:

Other available books of mine will be JAZAM! vols. 2-5, "Wiesn-G'schichtn" (Volk Verlag), "Vorletzte Geräusche" (Weildarum), and "Comicaze kostenlos 27" (Comicaze). I'm also going to be handing out these free Hipsters stickers:

HIPSTERS sticker

For the Munich Comicfestival (which is next week), I made a Hipsters sticker I'm going to be handing out for free at the JAZAM! booth. Here's the illustration I drew for it:

BTW: David Füleki made an amazing 4-part Hipsters guest comic that's up at the Hipsters site now. Read it here!

I just exchanged the little self portrait of me in the blog header, since the previous one was getting a bit old. Here's a bigger version:

Here it is, the end of the vampires storyline! Did you like it? I’d love to read your opinions in the comments!
Read the whole story from start to finish here. And tell your friends! Before the next storyline starts in a couple of weeks, I’m going to post some guest strips on the site, starting next monday. Stay tuned for that!
As a little bonus, here’s a scan of the pencils for this strip.

HIPSTERS webcomic 037

We’re getting close to the end (of the vampire storyline) now! Only two more strips after this one.

JAZAM! vol. 6

Over at the JAZAM! blog, we just revealed the cover of the 6th volume of our neat independent comics anthology. I didn't do the cover (except for the logo), but I'm still proud of how it turned out and glad to present it here. The illustration is by Boris Zatko, an amazing Swiss cartoonist.

For the new volume, I did the layout and a ton of editorial work, and also several illustrations and a 10-page comic collaboration with my buddy David Koslowski. I'm gonna show excerpts of that soon, too.

HIPSTERS webcomic 034

Sorry for the lateness of this comic! I’ve been working on JAZAM!, which didn’t leave me a lot of time for the hipsters. I’ll try to stay on schedule in the next weeks, though. After all, it’s only 5 more strips ’til the end of the vampire episode! What a perfect occasion to reread the rest of it, starting right here.

Part 30 already! Not too bad, right? The next few parts aren’t quite as gag-based as most previous ones because I want to advance the plot a little. I hope you still enjoy it!

Finally, once again a piece of non-hipster-related artwork! This is a new entry in my series of movie character portraits, which I've been doing sporadically for the last two years or so.

It's Barton Fink, of course.
