This upcoming fall I will show my New York sketches at the Gallery of "Zurück zum Glück" in Hannover. An opening date will be announced soon!
For Trouw I drew a portrait of Pablo Neruda, who was a famous Chilean poet and politician but also a man who disowned his disabled daughter and sent her abroad.
This is the first portrait of a series of writers I am illustrating for the Dutch newspaper Trouw. Shown: a grumpy Jeroen Brouwers.
Thrilled and honored that WeTransfer chose an illustration of mine as their wallpaper!
Very thankful that I got to work for Amnesty International again! I drew the back cover of a special print issue on the 10th global Letter Writing Marathon, one of the world's biggest human rights events.
221.986 letters are sent already and every one counts!
GZ asked me to do an illustration on psychology - more specific, on the industry's pessimistic mood. The goal was to basically show that things are not as bad as they seem.
So I thought, 'why not draw a simple thumbs down but put the text upside down?' This way the reader has do the turnaround by himself.
Special thanks to AD Katja Herz for letting me mess around!
Former chancellor Helmut Schmidt died today at the age of 96. Germany lost the smartest and most humble person in politics. I got to draw him twice for my 2013 exhibition "Kanzler".
Until the end, he was a mentor for the German people. As DIE ZEIT chief editor said: "Helmut Schmidt died and we, who survived him, now have to grow up. If we like it or not."

Today is the day when Marty McFly arrived in the future. And this is how my home would look like if Hoverboards would be real by now.
By the way, today I might not answer phone calls as I am in the movie theater watching all three Parts of Back to the Future. (hashtag nerd alert)
The cover I did for Amnesty International was featured on Coverjunkie - the coolest blog for cover lovers!
Looks good next to The New Yorker or TIME covers!
Back from vacation and what do I spot at the airports newspaper stand? My cover for the Amnesty Journal!
Thanks to Art Director Heiko von Schrenk

On July 4th, my new solo exhibition "Stimmt's?" will open in Hamburg!
"Stimmt's?" (German for "Is it true?") is the name of a column that journalist Christoph Drösser writes for the German weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. In this column Drösser answers questions about urban myths, science and society - always with interesting outcome.
I am illustrating a "Best of" of this column and it will be shown from
July 4th til July 17th @
Projektor, Sternstr. 4, 20357 Hamburg
Cash in or invest? My final and sketches.
Paritätische printed an information poster which will hang in Hamburg's 2.000 day care centers for which I did the illustration for. It basically promotes a higher rate of care workers per child.
My illustration for GZ about the recycling of precious metals within the jewelry industry. Sketch ideas plus the final result.
Recently the Swiss National Bank lifted the minimum price of the Swiss Franc to the Euro. This surprising decision has major consequences - especially for the exporting industries such as watch producers. Here's the final illustration and the sketches I did for the business magazine GZ.
