Hat in Japan

My forthcoming, self-authored children's book Hat will be published in Japan! I can't wait to see it with the Japanese typography, especially the cover. Hat will come out in the US in March 2009.

Recent Events

The past week was quite busy and I was out of the studio a lot more than usual. Last Monday, I was at PS 269 here in Brooklyn for a School visit. I had a great time with the students who were very well prepared and eager to know more about my books and about illustration in general. Many thanks to Ms. Ellen Mendonca for arranging everything.

Last Thursday I was at the American Illustration Party and got to hang out with some great people and get a sneak peak at the latest book. I'm honored to be part of the selection with one of my Destinations pieces.

And on Saturday I was be part of the 2nd Annual Children's Book Fair at the Brooklyn Museum, where I also got to meet many young readers but also some great authors and illustrators. Thanks to everybody and hope to see you again real soon!

Bridging the Gap

This is a new illustration for an article in the Boston Phoenix. The text explores possibilites of bridging the gap between red and blue, to overcome the partisanship and the divide in the country, in the aftermath of Barack Obama's election.

Evolution Animation

This is an old Flash Animation that I did back in Germany. The entire film is drawn in Flash, back then I drew it all with a mouse.
