 The old series about vampyrs, that I did years ago with author Tobias O. Meißner, gets a new look in a new edition from my publishing house Carlsen. The book will contain all three parts in a new layout, colorsceme and lettering. I also exchanged some pictures that I didn't like any more and put some new drawings in it. That the effort pays off you will see when the book is in german stores in autumn this year.

12.07.2012 Sketches for Emile Griffith

 

 Under "Sketches" I put some drawings I did on Emile Griffith, famous boxer and holder of some world championship titles. This phrase is from him: " I kill a man and most people understand and forgive me. However, I love a man, and to so many people this is an unforgivable sin; this makes me an evil person."
