Vor einem Jahr fragte mich ASP, ob ich den Auftakt übernehmen wolle für eine kleine Reihe illustrierter Songtexte. Der Song vom Knochenmann war mir vom letzten Konzert von ASPs Zaubererbrüdern mächtig im Kopf hängengeblieben. Genau mein Ding! Insofern habe ich nicht lange gezögert, als es genau um diesen Song ging.
Ich hatte eine wunderbare Zeit mit dieser herzzerreissenden Geschichte. Das Malen hat mich entführt, jedes Mal,wenn ich den Pinsel angesetzt habe.
Ich danke ASP für eine fantastische Zusammenarbeit und dieses atemberaubende Traumprojekt!
Kaufen kann man das Buch hier,mit Song:

....the German Computer Games Award, category "Best children`s game" 2015 !!!
The Daedalic Team is very proud and happy!
We worked hard for it, and I am happy, the people like the game!
For that reason, I picked out some of the concept art I did. Hope you like it!
If you want to see a little bit of the game while someone`s playing it, watch this:
You can see more of Fire (Trailer, Backgrounds) if you scroll a bit down.
Our small but fantastic Team at Daedalic is working since winter last year at FIRE, a small but fantastic, gameplay-focused crazy adventure.
Ungh, our main character, had to watch for the fire for his first nightly vigil, but he is too tired and...well...also not the most reliable guy. So the fire gets out and his village says : "Come back when you`ve got a new one, not one second earlier!" ... and so the journey begins.
The focus is mainly on gameplay and riddles, not so much on story. We work without speech and a special way to use different cursor. We hope to reach people of all ages. So come and join us.
Out in stores spring next year!
The release of the boardgame "VOLT", Heidelberger Spieleverlag, waslast week, end of january 2015 at the Nuremberger Boardgame Fair. I was happy to made the Cover illustration. The figures for the board are at work at the moment, I will post them, when they are finished.
With a Canon 7D and very few other funds, I produced this low budget imagemovie for a very creative company in southern Germany. They convert every single car in a little artwork.
I made everyting from concept to storyboard to cut - except the sound was made by the magic Mr. Thomas Gimpel :)
Was nice to work there! What an experience...
Finally it`s done! "Goodbye Deponia", the last one of the trilogy, is in stores now and the whole team is very very proud of its baby!
Here are: Trailer, a freaky Teaser the Deponia-Team made especially for ..well...for fun... and my Backgrounds!
Oh, btw: you can buy it HERE.
This is my Background Art - have fun!:
From time to time I do some Photoshop Backdrops for famous german TV Shows, like "Mein Mann kann", "Wetten, dass...?" or "Bastelkönig". There is never much time,and so we have to finish the pics in 6 or 7 hours. Anyway - it is quite fun!
This beautiful 2D Point-And-Click-Adventure is out in stores now (since 29th of may). It`s about the boy Jerry, who dreams of being a magician. Sometimes, dreams come true, but you can never imagine what comes beyond!
I had the wonderful chance to animate some magical stuff for the game...growing trees, cheesefire and more.
It was a pleasure to work with a wonderful and very creative team.
... you can buy the Game for sure @ Amazon:

Some Animations I made for this stunning game:
Watch the Trailer:
Get an idea of the game here:
...this is a teamwork with Timo Würz and the Planetarium Hamburg.
The CEO bought once a statue of a cow in a space-suit (don´t ask, why...), and since he bought it, it stays in the middle of the Planetarium arrival hall.
What they needed now was a story for this cow...Timo and me developped it. I wrote a little booklet to introduce the cow STELLA and her awesome story to the people.Timo made the Design, I made a model of one of the story characters (Juri, the bat) and we both arranged an exhibition with a lots of funny stuff!
You can find an official text (in german) AND the story/book as PDF HERE
WOHOO!! DEPONIA 2 is in stores now, and it already got a lots of great reviews - I posted the trailer for you.

With Lisa Stachnick, I made this shortfilm (8:11),called
"Der 31. April" ("The 31st april"), which tells the story of the journey of an broken umbrella back to life.
I made Storyboard, Layout, Set Design and Animation.
It was nominated at the Animation Award 2009 in Hamburg as one of 7 international shortfilms.

Here some pictures I took for a premium snack bar.
The owner was a high-class cook and stopped that part of his career to go back to something "simple"and basic.
