A little teaser to my "Helium-Mann" Mural done for Olobianco Festival in Magdeburg. We had so much funny footage, that we couldn't resist doing this teaser. I'll upload a little making-of as soon as possible. Thanks for looking!
Big thanks to the guys over at Renderfeed Los Angeles for featuring my work flanked by a long interview, especially thanks to Patricia who did care for all the details!
Next to that I have to thank for having access to the Renderfeed renderfarm ressources to prepare my Plastic Relations exhibition. You guys rock! I need more cores at home too!
Big Thanks for the big feature of my work in the current docma magazine (#60) to MAXON and Uli Staiger. And especially thanks to Uli again for being patient with my lame responding during these busy days.
The mag focuses on digital image editing. I enjoyed the fresh tone the whole mag is carrying. Even my girlfriend had fun reading it without being involved into CGI at all (...Bad Pixel Award etc.). Definitely worth a buy!
Big thanks to Zach from Vice/ creators project over in Brooklyn for reviewing my work. It feels good to see the pics making sense not only to me. Articles like this keep me rolling!
just a reminder: tonight 7pm is the opening. I'm looking forward to see you! All is set and ready to go! Big thanks to the RWE Team, Kirsten and Schere! I'll post the first photos as soon as possible on my behance page: here.
Dear friends, I would like to invite you to my upcoming show taking place in my hometown Dortmund: RWE Foyer, Freistuhl 7, 44137 Dortmund. I'm exhibiting with my old friend Wolfgang Krell. The last canvas is drying just in time to the opening which is quite soon: Thursday, August 21st/ 7pm. I would love to meet you and have a good talk and some drinks. CU there!
...I'm receiving quite a lot invitations/ calls for entries to submit to books, magazines or competitions lately and a few experiences make me wonder how serious or exclusive these invitations are.
But this one (second mail after no reply from my side) deserves respect and caught my attention of course.
Esther, how can I miss to support your book project?
I'm already looking forward to see the physical result- your book compiled with probably even more love than your lovely invitation.
Thanks for your 3dimensional inquiry- it made my day today and you should have received my files already...interview answers are following as soon as possible!
Just received my sample copy of the "Beyond Graphics Book" published by CYPI Press (ISBN 10: 1908175311 / ISBN 13: 9781908175311). Big thanks to the author Youija Nie for sending from Bejing and featuring my work on 10 double sheets!
Love the selection of artists and content, definitely worth to add to your collection if you're into the melting of contemporary art and illustration.
Thanks for featuring my work in the actual Hi Fructose Magazine (#32) to Annie and Atta! Your mag was and still is one of my bibles...unfortunately hard to get hands on in my area- all the more I'm looking forward to my physical sample-copy!!!
Big thanks to Caro and Franziska and the whole form editorial office and Helge "Bomber" Steinmann!!! If you're interested to read the stylewriting focus go to www.form.de and click "online lesen"...German only I'm afraid. The Focus is about how stylewriting influenced the nowadays job of illustrators, designers and artists...very diverse opinions and very interesting to read. But buying this mag is definitely worth it too guys.
Big thanks To Carlos Amoedo for shooting these epic shots. Huge Thanks to Patrick and Holly/ Snap Orlando for far more than expected and to the whole Art Attacks Crew Donia, Raymond, Tyler Timelapse, photos from the opening following as soon as possible.

Loved to hear about your stories and insights about art/ commercial illustration and handling all this diversity of being an artist nowadays: Stacey Rasom and Rebecca Rose...also thanks to Donia for hosting this interesting event.
A few weeks ago I was commissioned to illustrate Tchaikovskys Swanlake. Big thanks for your trust and artistic freedom to Kamil, Magda, Tomek and Tomasz. Nice to hear it won an KTR-Award finally.
