Unfortunately I couldn’t attend the Fumetto Festival in Luzern this year but at least I sent some work over there to be part of this cool project realized by Alice Kolb and Daniel Peter.
An old cigarette machine was filled with little packages of silkscreened cards designed by various illustrators, each one referring to a typical german “Sprichwort”.
Best part: it’s a pairs game!

Here’s an illustration I did a while ago
for the New York Times “Private Lives”-blog:
The “Erika-Fuchs-Foundation” is building a museum in honor of the famous
Donald-Duck-translator Dr. Erika Fuchs (1906-2005) and therefore commissioned contemporary cartoonists to contribute to the permanent exhibition.
The idea was to interpret and translate a famous quote into our personal style and “language”. Here’s a sneak peak of my contribution page.
Sadly the museum has not been able to open it’s doors yet, inauguration dates to be announced.
The Pitchfork Review Issue 4 is out and I have another 4-pages-comic in it:
Kim & Mickey in full color!
Canicola published a new anthology focused on german-based illustrators and cartoonists, featuring work by:
Jul Gordon, Sophie Martineck, Paul Paetzel, Josephin Ritschel, Maria Sulymenko, Anne Vagt and me!
