Yeah! My short comic THE BIRTHDAY (from the anthology WER TANZT SCHON GERN ALLEIN (‘Who likes to dance alone anyway?’), Peter Hammer Publishing House) wins the GINCO Award 2021 in the category ‘Best short comic for kids’! I am very happy that teh story won a prize by a modern, inclusive award! Thanks to the jury, to Karin Gruß, who helped me way back with this story, and to Kami Wallner, who contributed the beautiful colors to the comic.
October 3rd, 2021 – January 16th, 2022, Ludwiggalerie at Schloss Oberhausen, Northrhine-Westfalia
I’m looking forward to the weekend and this exhibition in the Ludwiggalerie in Schloss Oberhausen: “Unpublished” shows works by German comic artists that have been slumbering in the drawers, i.e. projects that have not yet found a publisher or any other means of publication. Every now and then comic artists work on projects where it’s either unclear if they will ever see the light of day or if it’s intended that they will be published. There can be many different reasons why projects were first considered and then not pursued, and the exhibition also tries to get to the bottom of this fact and brings together originals by well-known German comic artists. I am represented with works on my two gay adventure comic heroes Damian & Alexander and will be there for the vernissage on September 2nd, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. I look forward to seeing you there!
