INKtober 2015

Over the past month, I participated in the Inktober challenge for the first time, which means I made and uploaded one ink drawing for every day of the month. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you've probably already seen most of these, but I made this new collage of all 31 drawings for the blog:

If you want to see these in a little more detail, you should have a look at my Instagram or these 6 Tumblr posts:

Self Portrait Day 2015

It's Self Portrait Day again, so I painted this:

Here are my Self Portrait Day pics from 2007, 2009, 2013, 2015 (I skipped the other years):

24HCD no. 6

This past weekend, I was at my 6th(!) 24h Comic Day event in Leipzig. Now that I'd completed the challenge a couple of times, I thought I'd try a little something different, and pre-wrote a longer script, of which I only drew the first part (of 2). At 19 pages, it's not really a proper ‪‎#24HCD‬ comic, but it's the exact part of the story I prepared and wanted to get done. Here's a photo of the pages as they looked at the end of the 24h time period:

Here's a photo of the whole 24h comic-drawing troupe during a pizza break (shot by my gf Katja Klengel):

And here's a before/after group shot (left: Saturday at noon, right: Sunday at noon):

There's a very entertaining longer report about the event by first-timer David Füleki on his blog (in German): READ IT

I will likely edit and color my own 24h comic soon, although I might wait with its publication until I draw the second part at our next 24h Comic Day in spring. In the meantime, you can read all my other 24h comics HERE.

'Drink & Draw' life drawings

These are some life drawings from two recent(-ish) 'Drink & Draw' events in Berlin. One of them had a 50s theme, the other an 80s theme. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen these, but in case you're only following the blog, here you go:

Style Runner (game jam)

A couple of months ago, I did a game jam with Studio Fizbin. You can now download & play the game we made ("Style Runner") right here:

It's not completely finished & a little buggy, but I think it's pretty fun!

Offline Dating 2

Those of you who bought my mini-comic book Love & Monsters (or Liebe & Monster) have likely already read it, but now the rest of you can read it, too: the sequel to my 24hcd comic from last spring, Offline Dating.

I've uploaded it in four parts on Tapastic (in English):

Hipsters from the Deep

I know, I know – I told you Hipsters was over. But last Saturday, I participated in a 12-hour comic contest and spontaneously decided to draw an all-new 12-page Hipsters comic for it. I hope you like it!

Starting this Thursday, I'll be at Comicfestival München 2015, this year's biggest German comics convention. Here's some info about my presence at the festival:

Firstly, you'll be able to buy many of my comics at the JAZAM! table. This includes the brand-new JAZAM! Vol. X, the fairly new "Love & Monsters" (German & English editions), last year's "Hipsters" book, the second printing of "48 Stunden Angst", and many more (like older issues of JAZAM!). You can find us at booth 70 on the top floor (map).

Here's a photo of some of those newer comics:

I also contributed to an indie comic sticker album, which you'll be able to get at our table or from Comic Solidarity.

Then, there are the exhibitions. First, there's a JAZAM! exhibition at Café Kosmos, which I curated (I'm not showing any of my own stuff, though). On Thursday, there will be a big release party.
Then, there's a webcomics exhibition at Alte Kongresshalle (I think), which will include some Hipsters stuff.

Lastly, there are some comic readings. The first one's "Bitstorm - Worst of Weißworst" on Friday night, which is a "worst of" reading where I'll read a fun/bad German superhero comic I drew over ten years ago!
And finally, there's a big JAZAM! reading on Saturday around noon: "Best of JAZAM!". I'll be reading several comics there, including all of "Hipsters in Hell".

Come over and say hi!

A few days ago, the new volume of German indie comics anthology extraordinaire JAZAM! came out. As usual, I'm one of the editors and publishers and did all of the editorial design and a short comic for it. Not so usual: as this is our tenth(!) volume, the entire book is in color! And it has this amazing cover by Sascha Wüstefeld:

You can have a peek inside the book over at

Here's the first page of my own four-page comic contribution:

And here's where you can buy it: Kwimbi | JAZAM! Shop

At Kwimbi, you can also order my new mini comic book "Love & Monsters" in German & in English!

Hipsters vs. Lesung (Berlin edition)

If you missed last month's reading in Dresden and happen to be in Berlin next week, you get another chance to see Katja, Tim, and me doing a live Hipsters reading.

The reading will be on Tuesday, April 14, at 8:00 pm, at Buchhandlung Montag in Prenzlauer Berg.

Here's the Facebook event.

And the trailer (for the Dresden reading):

The reading is part of the COMICINVASIONBERLIN 2015 satellite program. JAZAM! will have a table at the CIB main event on April 18/19. Come and visit us!

Love & Monsters

After a long, silent gestation period, suddenly a lot of my projects are ready to hatch.

You may remember that last year, I published a 24-hour comic called "Offline Dating". You may also remember that I mentioned a sequel to said comic, which came into being during the most recent 24-Hour Comic Day in Leipzig in September of 2014. Well, now I'm finally done coloring the sequel and am about to put out a little book containing both parts of "Offline Dating". The book will be called "Love and Monsters", and this is the cover:

As you can see, there will be both a German and an English edition.

You'll be able to get these at various comic conventions and, presumably, at Kwimbi. But first, I have to wait for the printer to actually deliver them. With any luck, they'll be ready in time for the Leipzig book fair in March.

Here's a work-in-progress/sketch version of the cover:

And here's the first page of "Offline Dating 2":

Hipsters vs. Lesung

Have I mentioned that there will be a big Hipsters reading in Dresden next month? It's on March 8 at "Sabotage" Dresden at 6:00 pm. Have a look at the Facebook event for more details.
If you can't make it to Dresden, there's a good chance there will be another reading in Berlin in April or so!

To promote the reading, Katja, Tim, and I shot a live-action trailer! The weather was much shittier than expected and we kind of froze our asses off, but I think it still turned out pretty well! Watch it here:

HIPSTERS chapter illustrations

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but I haven’t been idle. There’s a lot of stuff coming up!

To sweeten the waiting period, here are two of the chapter illustrations from my HIPSTERS book:
