Its been some crazy weeks! Here are my SPIEGEL covers from the last weeks. I was told that I am the first artist to illustrate 3 consecutive covers in DER SPIEGEL's history!

ADC Award Winner! World Illustration Award Shortlist!!!

I'm very happy to announce that "They Let You Do It" just won a German Art Directors Club Award in the category "Editorial Illustration/Professional"!

At the same time, I sincerely apologize that I happen to be one of the 5 people worldwide to profit from this administration.

I was asked by DIE ZEIT to visually comment on the first 100 days of the Trump administration. And this is how I feel.

Happy 2017 everyone!

This was my last illustration of 2016 about not wanting to celebrate on New Years Eve. Definitely not me! For Spiegel Online and bento.

Have a wonderful 2017!


Cover sketches for DIE ZEIT

I was asked to sketch out ideas for DIE ZEIT's cover around the topic "The Endangered Establishment". Here are two of them. You'd have to imagine the headline in the Trump-Cap or in between the flying hats.

Sadly the headline changed so they were rejected. That's life.

Neue Presse article about me and my exhibition

Okay, the headline "Fighting for American values" is just maximum drama... :D:):..But any other than that, the "Neue Presse" wrote a very kind article about me and my current exhibition.

By the way, all NYC illustrations are limited to 15 prints only and some are close to sold out. Check the shop, if you are interested.

New illustration for DIE ZEIT

I got to draw an illustration for DIE ZEIT about important upcoming decisions that could decide the fate of the European Union. First the referendum in Italy and in April the elections in France. 

I always love to add the layout into my illustrations, so I'm very thankful that I got go crazy on this one. Even though this is a serious topic, drawing this felt like setting up dominos in real life. :)

Exhibition "NYC"

This upcoming Thursday I'll open my exhibition called NYC in Hannover, Germany. Please feel free to join if you happen to be in the neighborhood!
