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.

2021, Fuck Yeah!

Once again, I was asked to join Schlogger's annual "Fuck Yeah" calendar, which contains weekly illustrations by some of Germany's coolest cartoonists and illustrators (and also me).

For this year's edition I collaborated with David Füleki, whose work I've been a fan of for a long time. Roughly speaking, he drew the right half of the picture, I the left half. We both worked on the colors and the original idea came from my gf Katja Klengel.


Because the calendar is supposed to be family-friendly, we made an alternate version without the umbilical cord for it. I prefer the version with the cord, though.





Comicgate.de also has a brief interview with me about my illustration for last year's calendar and current projects.

Die Toten @ CSE digital

The German comics community was very sad when our biggest comics festival, Comic-Salon Erlangen, had to be cancelled this year because of Covid-19. Luckily, the good folks at Kulturamt Erlangen came up with a digital alternative and launched a digital platform called #CSEdigital. On it, there will be a lot of cool content from many of my fellow comics creators and me.

Together with Comic Solidarity and podcast Der Tele-Stammtisch, we made the following video, which contains a short interview and a 15-minute video version of my comic Die Toten: Isar Palace (in German). The character voices are Katja Klengel & me.



If you want to know the rest of the story, you can order the comic at your local comic shop or book store or online at Kwimbi and Amazon.de.

Six Fanarts

The new meme that's all the rage these days is the #SixFanarts challenge, in which you ask your social media followers for character suggestions and then draw 6 of them in your style.

I had so much fun with this that I did it three times this week! Here they are:

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.

It's also up on Tapas.

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:
