Kleine Leute in Paris | Souvenirs

Verkäuferin mit Mops in ihrem Souvenirstand mit Postkarten, Postern, Reiseführern, T-Shirts, Taschen, Hüten und Sonnenbrillen von Paris

I decided to refuse the Hide-and-Seek book about Paris, mainly because (a) big top views of a rather flat place do not work well in my twodimensional “dollhouse” perspectives (if Paris had more hills and stairs, it might actually have worked!), and (b) drawing a whole city which really exists makes me want to illustrate absolutely every detail I discovered there – but unfortunately, this would take several years. Besides, I realised that there are illustrators whose whole style is a much better fit for such a project – and that I don’t have to be able to draw everything.

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Ausschnitt aus der Illustration von drei Freundinnen im Café, die Cupcakes essen, Kaffee trinken und fröhlich Gossip verbreiten, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Illustrations for a material brochure by Schock, a producer of granite sinks. My briefing was to contrast two different material lines by using the idea and mood behind them. So, this is my design for the younger, more trendy and astonishingly colourful Cristalite series: Three friends take a break from shopping, chat, drink coffee and eat pastel coloured cupackes in a street café.

Wedding Design

Karten im Set, Grafik Design von Logo und Corporate Identity für Hochzeit und gemeinsames Leben des Paares

This was one of my favourite graphic commissions those past few months: A full wedding design including a logo (in which every tiny detail has a particular, very personal reason), CI, stamps and seals (all of this not only for the big day, but also for all sorts of everyday purposes lateron) and, of course, all the stationary from save-the-date to invitation (with a little map and RSVPs) and thank you cards – all that for a very special couple I had the pleasure to get to know a lot better through this really nice project. Thank you very much for that!

On September 22nd, we had the big signing, exhibition and reading “One Night Stand” celebrating the erotic anthology “Bettgeschichten – Comics für Erwachsene” (Hrsg: Naomi Fearn und Reinhard Kleist at Zwerchfell Verlag), for which I illustrated a spread with my “Frau Nachbarin” – and it was a wonderful evening! Many thanks to Naomi Fearn, Modern Graphics, Galerie Knoth und Krüger and all those who did actually read (and tell) their comics!

You can read more about the event, look at pictures and even listen to the sensational playlist if you head over to the Bettgeschichten Blog!

Exhibition | Goethe Institut Märchenwelten

Handzeichnung mit Ölkreide zum Märchen Sterntaler der Gebrüder Grimm

I just discovered the website for the touring exhibiton “Märchenwelten” about the fairy tales by the brothers Grimm, which is travelling the world thank to the Goethe Institutes, in four copies – and it contains three of my Fairy Tale Girls. On their website, you can not only look at the exhibition, you can as well find the current dates and places to see it yourself! (Link)
