is a rather new field for me. Because I started with Indian ink drawing, I was used to see the image as important part. In comics, story is important and the image has to express what the story needs. That is a totally different approach ! Therefore, I often create panels or one-pagers.


Again, several comics are among my friends because they were meant as a present or reminder and so the collection is of a .. manageable size ;-)

Pangalactic Gargleblaster (1996)

This is two-pager about...well..alcohol. For those of you who have read the "Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" by Douglas Adams, have you ever wondered WHAT a Pangalactic Gargleblaster does to your brain ? The text is in German, but IF you know the book, you will understand it ;-)

Kernspalter (1997)

This shows you what nuclear science really means : dealing with very small particles. And what is more obvious than to use small tools for these tasks....? Ahh, by the way, have you seen 'The Life of Brian' ?

Rupf (1997)

The convention of German physics students, held twice a year, is called ZaPF (Zusammenkunft aller Physik Fachschaften). In 1997, it was our term again to host this convention at the Ruhr-Universitšt Bochum (RUB). Don't ask who came up with the idea to call it RUPF (RUB-ZaPF) in that year.
The striking similarity to a cockatoo named LUZI is purely coincidental ! You can buy a sweater with that bird =)$-}

Rupf II (2003)

In the year 2003, the ZaPF is again hosted in Bochum. And as one can see, the chicken has it's feathers back. (Note: ZaPFHahn in German also means beer≠tap).
