Livestock

This comic first appeared in JAZAM! vol. 4 (topic: "Monsters") in 2009, and now I've colored the whole thing, translated it into English, and put it online for the first time ever!

Click on the first page to read it in English at Tapastic:



Or CLICK HERE to read it in German at MyComics.de

It's probably one of the most political (and cynical) comics I've done. How do you like it?

JAZAM! vol. 4 is no longer available, but you can get most of our other issues in our shop.

New game stuff

Over the past year, I've painted a couple of graphics for the browser-based strategy game "Aloha: Paradise Hotel". Here are a few of them:






You can play the game for free right here: PLAY ALOHA


Also, I recently made some item graphics for the current 2-year anniversary event of Angry Birds Epic:


They're still adding new content to that game, and I think it's really fun!

A House Divided

In Erlangen, Katja Klengel and I did a short comic reading for an event called "B1tst0rm", where artists were supposed to read some of their favortite webcomics (by other artists). We decided to read a A House Divided short story by Haiko Hörnig & Marius Pawlitza, a great fantasy comic that recently came out as a book. To spice things up, I drew this additional prologue using my Hipsters characters:



This is Katja & me reading the comic:



By the way, I also drew this piece of fan art for the comic's creators' recent birthdays:

Next Sunday (May 22), there will be another one of our Reading Panels comic readings in Dresden. This time, we'll be reading "Hipsters in Hell" as well as several short comics by Katja Klengel, Tim Gaedke, and Matthias Lehmann. For the second time now, the reading will take place in a movie theater called Schauburg.

24HCD April 2016

Some cartoonist friends and I got together this weekend to do one of our two annual 24-hour comic marathons. Studio Fizbin graciously let us use their basement at Saftladen Berlin.


During the 24-hour period, I continued to work on a comic that I'd started at our last event in October 2015. I only got 12 pages done this time (a bit of a disappointment), but in total, I'm at 31 pages now! I'm still gonna need 20-ish more to finish the story, though.


Read my other 24h comics here at Tapastic!

JAZAM! Vol. 11

The new volume of German indie comics anthology JAZAM!, of which I am an editor, is almost here! The topic this time is "Adventure" and the whole book is designed to be suitable for all ages. I myself drew a 9-page comic called "Fauler Zauber" for it. Here's the first page:


The book contains 320 pages of full-color comics by 51 different artists. I think it's our best volume yet and a lot of fun! There's a 16-page preview on MyComics.de.

Here's the wonderful cover by Natalie Dombois:


You can now pre-order the book at our online shop and you'll be able to buy signed copies at all of my future festival and con appearances, most importantly at Comicsalon Erlangen in late May.

Reading Panels: "Als ich so alt war"

For the past year or so, I've participated in a number of comic readings in Katja Klengel's "Reading Panels" series. Some of them have been readings of my own comic, Hipsters, others were readings of other artists' comics, which I just joined as a voice actor.

One of the most recent ones was a reading of Katja's great graphic novel "Als ich so alt war" in Dresden last December. This one was special because it contained several songs (which Katja and I performed live) and some live kalimba music. It was also the first one that was filmed in its entirety. See the first part here:



And see the other nine parts RIGHT HERE.

The next reading will be a compilation of several short comics by Katja, Tim Gaedke, Matthias Lehmann, and me at the Schauburg in Dresden on May 22, 2016.
