Nemo’s Cutlery

Even if it isn’t shown in the graphic novel, there were also drafts and considerations as towhat the cutlery on board the ‘Nautilus‘ could look like. Here’s a spoon from Nemo’ssilverware.

In September I was on a boat trip to Scotland. And although it was very disturbed by storms (we were unable to call many ports and destinations as a result), I am very grateful for having been to cities like Edinburgh (on the day of our visit there, Queen Elizabeth II died), Glasgow and areas like the Highlands or Islands like the Isle of Harris (with the Callendish Standing Stones). The whole country is breathtakingly beautiful! The last picture shows more of an sketched ‘impression’ of an area in the Highlands than a worked out motif.

Last weekend I was in Basel to promote my new graphic novel adaptation of 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA at the Comixshop Basel booth (at the “Fantasy Basel” fair). Tomorrow is the first sale day of this ‘sequel’ to my WAR OF THE WORLDS adaption, and we already had copies

20,000 Leagues under the Sea Graphic Novel concert at the KIBUM

November 20th, 11:30 – 12:15 am, Kulturetage, Bahnhofstraße 11, 26122 Oldenburg

Hello friends! On Sunday, November 20th, we will be guests at KIBUM, the Oldenburg Children’s Book Fair, and will be giving a reading concert of my graphic novel 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Carlsen Comics) based on Jules Verne’s famous classic!
In the concert we’ll take you on a journey through the fantastic underwater world of Jules Verne: while the images from the comic are playing before your eyes, I will be reading parts from the book to live music improvisations (played by Jörg Walter on a historic reed organ), and together we’ll let the adventures of Captain Nemo and his passengers come alive for you! Afterwards, if we still have time, I’ll give a small workshop report about how my working process on the graphic novel was like and insights into the work of a comic artist. And of course I’ll be happy to sign your copies of the book.
So let’s go to the “Kulturetage” at Bahnhofstrasse 11 in 26122 Oldenburg, on November 20th – and do this musical under water world tour all together!
