20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Book Concert at the Humboldt Library

June 27th, 7:30 pm, Humboldt Library Berlin (-Tegel), Karolinenstraße 19, 13507 Berlin, no Entrance fee (donations appreciated)

t’s that time again on Monday! Together with the musician Jörg Walter, we are starting one of our popular ‘book concerts’ about my graphic novels again: after the success with the musical reading for my WAR OF THE WORLDS graphic novel in the previous years, we are now performing my brand new adaptation of 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Carlsen Comics). Join us on our journey to the fantastic underwater world of Jules Verne! I read excerpts from the comic based on his famous classic to music improvisations played live by Jörg, while the panels from the comic roll before your very eyes. We let the adventures of Captain Nemo and his passengers come to life for you!

Here is a short excerpt from the event text: “Anger burns In Captain Nemo against humanity
fighting each other. Thanks to his submarine, the ‘Nautilus’, he now calls the oceans his home.
But when he captures Professor Arronax, his servant Conseil and the harpooner Ned Land, the
outside world invades his kingdom. An adventure begins for all of them as they face the dangers
of the sea and their inner demons.”

So come everyone on 27.06. at 7.30 p.m. to the Humboldt Library in Berlin-Tegel (Karolinenstraße 19, 13507 Berlin) and let yourself be enchanted! Admission is free (but donations are appreciated)!

UNPUBLISHED – Comic Exhibition at the Ludwiggalerie Oberhausen

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I’m looking forward to the weekend and this exhibition in the Ludwiggalerie in Schloss Oberhausen: ‘Unpublished’ shows works by German comic artists that have been slumbering in the drawers, i.e. projects that have not yet found a publisher or any other means of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!

Keynote Speech at WISSVibes

September 17 + 18, 2021, 4-6 pm (Friday) + 9.30 am-5 pm (Saturday), barcamp (in ZOOM)

I’m really looking forward to this online barcamp, where I’m a speaker! It’s WISSVibes21!

WISSVibes is a project by Tanja Wehr, which has set itself the goal of spreading knowledge culture (“Knowing is the new sexy”) through events such as this barcamp. In case you wonder, A barcamp means that there is a fixed schedule, but the topics are not so strictly defined in advance. Similar to conferences, speakers are booked about 6 months in advance and everything is packed up and ready, but at the event itself there is enough space and time to have the interesting conversations during the breaks because of which we all are attending, too.

I will be there with a keynote speech at the event taking place in ZOOM. My topic is: “‘Getting knowledge among the people – edutainment in comics and children’s books”. As you can see from my works shown here on this site, I illustrate non-fiction books and comics that repeatedly incorporate historical facts on the visual and narrative level. In my talk, I want to show my approach to researching and incorporating these facts into my work, and how they influence both the illustration and the narrative.

I will hold my speech on Saturday morning. But you can also find out more about the program of the barcamp here.

I would love to see you on the other side of the screen at the weekend! See ya!
