Heart attack. Looped snippet from the collaborative animation project “AT3MLOS – Eine ungefilterte Wahrheit”, directed by Daniel Bahr (2017). Now online in my project section with character art and whatnot.

We just learned that it’s part of the “Best of ITFS-Tour 2018”, being screened all over the world.
More loops and tortured organs over at my IG Feed.

Streetfighter 2 was the theme of the month over at the character design challenge. So I draw some Blanka fan art … the character I probably picked most of the time back in the 90s. More poses of Blanka in my IG Feed.

I love animation loops. So I turned some of my favourite scenes from my animation for the Illustratoren Organisation into nice little looping candy.

New illustration online – a boxing sheep! To be honest, I’m not that much into that sport but I wanted to capture the lighting effects. And finally draw some glittering shorts ;)
You can check out the sketch on instagram.

Interview with Illustratoren Organisation e.V.

Posted on Jan 16, 2018 in animation, news

The Illustratoren Organisation asked me to say a few lines about being a freelance animator and the current market situation for explanation/explainer videos around here. It’s my subjective view of course. In any case, it features a looped GIF animation! Read the interview here (German).
