I had the honor to participate in a collaborative animation project by Daniel Bahr called “Atemlos” (Breathless).
It’s about the lethal effects of “Feinstaub“ (particulate matter).
14 animators were tapped to participate in this project, each one producing a segment of 10 seconds according to their assigned section of the voice over text.
My part starts at 0’40” with Mister PM …
No Asterix, no Obelix either. Three double pages of gladiators and exotic animals going crazy in the good old colosseum, illustrated for children’s magazine GEOlino this February!
An explainer video for a new app called “S-Weltweit“ by German int’l network S-CountryDesk.

Adam Habib, Lead Camera and Staging Artist at Pixar came to Munich to share his knowledge about visual contrast and story, perspective and storytelling and … *pant/gasp* … virtual cinematography.

Earlier this year I was asked to do the illustrational work for the fast paced auction game “Lady Richmond – Fast Fight For Inheritance“ by author Tim Rogasch. (In German: „Lady Richmond – Ein Erzocktes Erbe“)

There will be more pictures on my portfolio page soon. Now place your bids!

“Was Illustratoren wissen müssen” (What illustrators need to know) won 1st place in the category “Erklärfilm” (explanatory video) at the Kinofest Lünen 2015, Germany. We couldn’t attend the award show, so we got the trophy at the Kinofest Lünen Event at the Berlinale 2016 in, well … Berlin this February. Many thanks to the whole festival team.
