It's a book!

I have received my advance copies of HAT, my first self-authored children's book. The book will come out officially in March. It's an amazing experience to see your "baby" in the flesh for the first time. Thanks so much to Bloomsbury, who put their faith into my project.

Freistil – Best of European Commercial Illustration

Good News from Germany! This drawing of Ground Zero will be included into the highly acclaimed Freistil 4 – Best of European Commercial Illustration. The new tomb will be all black and white, though reproduced with 5 colors and a varnish. My image will take up a whole spread and I can't wait to see the finished book! Thanks to Raban Ruddigkeit and everybody who helped making this latest installment possible.

Christmas in Panama 2

I'm bit late with this, but I still wanted to share this short film that the Panama Advertising Agency created for the Holidays, which goes perfectly with the image I created.

Christmas in Panama

This was the official christmas card for the Panama Advertising Agency this year. They sent out flutes as gifts to all their clients, and my illustration, depciting the owners Guenter Steinort and Werner Baertle in front of the very cool Panama Building in Stuttgart, was featured on the card that came with it.
