In Brussels – for the Comics, of course!

On the 25th and 26th of April, 2023, I was in Brussels at the invitation of EVA (European Visual Artists), the representation of the Collecting Societies of Europe (which care for the royalties of rights owners of copyrighted artistic material), to speak about the situation of German comic artists and the problems authors and illustrators face with the AI development.

20,000 Leagues under the Sea Graphic Novel concert at the Pfälzer Comicsalon

July 3rd, 5:30 pm, KunstScheune, Ludwigstraße 27, 67161 Gönnheim

A a new reading concert of my graphic novel 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Carlsen Comics) is coming up! On Monday, July 3rd, at 5:30 p.m., the musician Jörg Walter and I will be giving a musical reading at the very 1st edition of the Pfälzer Comicsalon!

At this event, we’ll take you on a fantastic underwater ‘world tour’ based on my adaption of Jules Vernes beloved classic: while the images from the graphic novel are playing before your eyes, I will read excerpts from the comic to live music improvisations by Jörg and we’ll let the adventures of Captain Nemo and his passengers come alive for you! Afterwards I give a small report (with pictures) about how I worked on the graphic novel, by that giving insights into the work of a comic book artist, and will be happy to sign your book :). There will be a book table, too, where you can get your copy of the graphic novel!

So off to Gönnheim! There’s a wine fest, too, at that time… ;).
