Inktober 2017 - German comic characters

Inktober is a challenge to draw one ink sketch for every day of October and share them on the web. I decided to participate once again this year and picked "German comic characters" as my topic.

Over the last month, I drew these 31 sketches of characters from German comic classics, mangas, graphic novels, and indie comics:

For the full gallery including comic titles, check out my Facebook album!

I also posted all of them on my Instagram and as a collection at

Have a look at my INKTOBER 2015 & INKTOBER 2016!

Radio Nukular Tour Merch

The Radio Nukular live tour is beginning today, and in addition to my official tour poster, I got to illustrate some other tour merch.

Firstly, I drew this poster, an homage to that first Star Wars: Episode I teaser poster (you know, from back when we all thought the movie was gonna be totally awesome):

And then I also made this simplified vector version of my tour poster, which you can get on a t-shirt:

Airport illustrations

Some illustrations I drew for a magazine last year that didn't end up being used in this form:

As you may be able to tell, these are supposed to be anthropomorphized versions of the Berlin (Tegel) and Munich (Franz-Josef Strauß) airports.

I've also added these to my recently-expanded Behance portfolio. Have a look!

Radio Nukular tour poster

The guys from popular German 80s/90s nostalgia podcast Radio Nukular recently asked me to design/illustrate their new tour poster. It's inspired by old Bud Spencer/Terence Hill movie posters and was a lot of fun to do!

And here's the line art/scribble:

Club 19

My most recent job was to draw a cover illustation and logo for the new podcast "Club 19," in which Dominik Hammes (Radio Nukular) and Simon Krätschmer (Rocket Beans TV) talk about all things Stephen King.

I had a lot of fun hiding all those little Stephen King-related details all over this pic!

And here's just the logo:
