Christmas is still Coming….

comic, fun, illustration, sketch

…. yes it is, although looking outside my window (in Cologne) suggests it is already spring. Last week I finally made my own Christmas Cards. This is basically the result of taking the term Christmas Card literally. This was so much work I am saving the rest of this card for another post, but here are the sketches and the orignal drawing.

Christmas is Coming

Today I am working on my Christmas card. Christmas cards are always hard because contriving something new is really hard. This not my card, but something I did for Heipha (a pharmaceutical company belonging to Merck) in summer. the absurd thing about Christmas cards is that you get these jobs in august. I should have made my personal card back then, too…..

New Book. Tierisch Verliebt

My new book which will be published in january 2015 but Amazon already shows it. It is full of stupid German puns, which can´t be translated properly I am afraid. It is about cute animals in love (moles, lions, goats, sheep, wolves, everything!)

I take this as an opportunity to show one more page and the sketches I did beforehand. Those are an exception because I did the initial sketch digitally, which is because the layout was rather complicated. Normally I prefer ordinary pencil sketches.
