Mimi Fiedler’s “Balkantherapie” | Character & Styling

Character Design und Styling für Mimi Fiedler im Buch Balkantherapie von Iris Luckhaus

Those were my first designs for character, clothes and styling for the book “Brauchstu ma keine Doktor, brauchstu nur diese Buch! – Die Balkantherapie für Liebe, Leib und Leben” by the wonderful Mimi Fiedler, which I illustrated almost a year ago for MVG Verlag. In the book and on the cover, Mimi wears mostly the fourth outfit (striped shirt, hotpants and suspenders), and in one of the small vignettes, the blouse from the third outfit.

Super Heroine for Barbara Magazin | Drafts

I’m working on some confidential projects right now, which I’m not supposed to show (yet). Meanwhile, I’m sharing some Making Of for older work – like this first draft for super heroine Barbararella, which I designed and illustrated last year for an (unpublished) column in Gruner und Jahr’s “Barbara” magazine by Barbara Schöneberger.

With a little delay, here are my character design sketches for super heroine Barbararella, which I designed and illustrated last year for an (unpublished) column in Gruner und Jahr’s “Barbara” magazine by Barbara Schöneberger.

Super-Heroine Barbararella for Barbara Magazine

Zeichnung von Barbara Schöneberger als Superheldin Barbararella für eine Kolumne im Barbara-Magazin von Iris Luckhaus

For Gruner und Jahr’s develepment of Barbara Schöneberger’s magazine “Barbara”, I designed and illustrated the super-heroine “Barbararella”. The picture above illustrates a column in which Barbara punishes a guy she catched peeing while standing, while her superhero collegue in the background is already waiting for their coffeebreak… Unfortunately, the series got never published, but it was great fun to draw. Thank you very much, Judith!

Here they are, the “52 Aces Reloaded” poker decks by Zeixs – Books for Designers I illustrated the Queen of Hearts for a few months ago – and if you’re lucky, they’re still available!

My first all-handmade original drawing since 2004, for the sketchbook ‘Meine Welt’ (my world) by Illustratoren-Organisation. It was great, great fun and I had a hilarious weekend with the book… even though it was really heartbreaking to say goodbye and send it over to its next stop!
