When I was a legit artist for a week in 2015, I had an installation at the rad Vancouver Art Gallery.
GIZA QUASAR: I animated 4 short videos, had them transferred to the rarest 4 videocassette formats and then deleted all original digital files.
Now, one of the cassettes will be exhibited in Hamburg, at the YPON opening. Later this year, the whole thing.
Barcelona based publishing house MONSA released a new illustrated hardcover on maps. It includes several illustrations by me, and it is also very pretty otherwise, and you can get it here.
Usually my SPIEGEL illustrations are single images, so it feels overstated to post them individually. But three is a spread, right? For a non-cliché article on digital life and reclusion, I was asked to propose scenes that feel narrative. Fun fact: the desperate person at the beach, that’s me!
An anime collaboration between a German sci-fi author (who died 90 years ago), a Tokyo based animation studio from the 1950s (that doesn’t exist), and me. At the galerie b, of the Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart, on 16 video screens. スペースシュヴァーベン
michelles opfer 2016
As of now, my 20 minute short film MICHELLES OPFER, that premiered at the International Short Film Festival in Hamburg in 2014, can be screened online. Michelle’s Sacrifice yihaa!
I suppose you should watch it.
3 actual real trailers for a quiz show on German public broadcaster ARD that I wrote, designed and animated, over at SFA. Considering the premise, rather amusing and visually rad, I hope.
For electronic-experimental-rock-with-beatbox-group PeroPero from Berlin, I illustrated the cover of MILK. For more information on their album and merchandise, why not visit their their Facebook page.
I really like this, so when KiRRiN iSLAND asked, I was glad to make an action figure. Or at least an ad for one. You should probably listen to this and get yourself a KiRRiN iSLAND action figure.
For the Italian brand Mokarico, I did a package illustration. Since the coffee is decaf, the package also serves as a pillow case for your good night’s sleep. The illustration depicts the consequences of decaf consumption: jobless sheep, suffering, rioting and looting.
Thanks go to Walter Ziegler at Serviceplan. Received Bronze at the New York Festivals and at ADC Germany.
Michelles Opfer [Michelle’s Sacrifice] is an animation film I’ve been working on for the past months. In short, it’s about a girl that gets a sense of achievement through gymnastics. Also, together with a special friend, she attempts to save the marriage of her parents.
I did a spread and some single illustrations about complaining customers and their recipients for the magazine Chrismon. The illustrations are somewhat in the fashion of the Mm Oh Ah cover.
gestalten maps, feb ’13
Gestalten Verlag’s A MAP OF THE WORLD is coming out this February. It also features some of my maps for Meine Stadt.
According to the publisher, the book is a compelling collection of work by a new generation of original and sought-after designers, illustrators, and mapmakers. So now you probably want to get yourself some copies.
I just completed my first party poster. It comes in three different colors. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. …………………
meine stadt kumberg
Susanne Sota from Kumberg, Austria, has dressed the walls of her brand new Café am Platz with Meine Stadt prints. Thank you and you’re welcome and congratulations! ____ ____________
happy nature lamp
Scholz & Friends Berlin came up with this eco friendly packaging idea / cool lampshade idea, in three patterns. I illustrated the beer drinking owls and the ecstatic flora & fauna motif.
Received a Bronze Clio, a Silver ADC award, and a Gold ADC of Europe award. Thanks.
On Jon Frickey’s illustration site. It’s brand new. As these words are written. Enjoy! Holy Moly Ravioli! You’re reading a super secret message. Lucky you. The magic word is „magic“. So the first person to write Jon Frickey a mail that says „magic“ will get a super secret gift of some sort. I guess.
