And here is the next piece for Bild am Sonntag Horoscope, fresh from the desktop. Took me 3 hours in the making. I think its a clever piece within the whole series – there is just the right dose of inner references regarding the theme Capricorn and its interpretation as a leader mentality. Note the "reading cycle".

Here we go with another illustration for FR "Einmaleins für Kinder" (Basics for Children). Again its topic is related to war (in what times do we live?): "Wieviele Kriege gibt es?"("How many Wars are out there?") I tried to solve the problem by incorporating the idea of the russian Mamuschka to show the endless number of wars.

This is an illustration piece for the horoscope of Bild am Sonntag, the biggest weekly published newspaper in Germany (it's yellowpress, of course). The theme is Saggitarius (hope, that was obvious?)
And here is the according scribble to the illustration. I did only this one, with nonreproblue pen and feltbrush-pen, had some corrections from the client on that (the couple is missing in the final artwork) and then moved directly into digital production.
This work was done for Frankfurter Rundschau, a Frankfurt-based daily newspaper. They established a column named "Einmaleins für Kinder" (Basics for Children), where difficult topics are explained in a way easy to understand. Nevertheless i had a lot of trouble visualizing this topics, i.e. this piece "Childhood in War-aereas". Duh!
