ECHOLOT/ DESTRUDO COVER ARTWORK
The progressive doom band Echolot released their third album called Destrudo on 2nd of October 2020. I had the honor to create the album artwork and some new merchandise. As it is their heaviest record so far, I got commissioned to create an artwork matching the tone of the album.
The band and I were both very excited and happy with the result.

PAZARACK COMIC BOOK
I‘ve been wanting to do this comic for a long time. Since about 5 years my thoughts slip into this other world from time to time. There‘s this watery planet covered by weird islands and grotesque life forms in my head. And somehow it doesn‘t get boring. BUT after spending so much time dwelling in a fictional world it was about time to get something onto paper! The result is just a glimpse, but I guess you gotta start SOMEWHERE..
The plot takes place within a weird island world and revolves around the main character Pazarack, an amphibious being who sets off on a journey to his recently injured grandparents.
The volume is 54 pages including sketches, prewords and credits.

FOR THE HOBBY HEART-
MASTER DIPLOMA WORK
As the basis of my work I have drawn a forty-page comic (see above). This sculpture is a life-size model kit of my comic figure Pazarack. It is based on an industrially manufactured injection-molded frame in which various individual parts of a model kit are arranged.
"For the Hobby Heart" is a tribute to an earlier hobby of mine. Assembling and painting of tabletop figures once showed me the way to my own modelling. For a long time, I`ve been deeply commited to that hobby culture, the high demand on details has continued to draw through my work. So has my interest in science fiction and its genres, which are represented in literature, film, comics and pop culture. Another important aspect that guided me was the visual relationship between the structure of the casting frame and the arrangement of the panels within the comic. In addition, there is an absurd moment of proportions, the miniature becomes life-size and the viewer may become a miniature himself. It remains the freedom to imagine the construction kit assembled in an individual way and to invent your own story with the figure.
