Book Fair Frankfurt

My lovelies,

yesterday I went to the big Book Fair in Frankfurt where my book was released! It is an essay about the motiv of being devoured in art and literature, that I wrote, designed and illustrated.
Meneater are to be found everywhere, in fairytales, movies, art... In the first part of the book that is called "Mit Haut und Haar – Allegorien vom Fressen und Gefressen-Werden" I am discussing what the allegory of being devoured means for the artist and where the fear of it comes from. The second part is a bestiary of 10 more or less prominent meneaters that I have interpreted in my own illustrations.
It was really a lot of work, but now I am very happy with the final book!
It will soon be available on Amazon, I will let you know!
If you are visiting the book fair you are very welcome to stop by in hall 4.1 in corridor M at the Merz Solitude exhibition and have a look at my book!

Please support my friends!

Two of my best friends, Judith Schöll and Alena Jelinek, are very talented  up-and-coming film producers. Currently they start a very exciting new project! Killing all the flies is a scifi-mystery-thriller series which captivated me right from the beginning of the first pitch line. The story deals with the borderline between life and death and evokes the question how solid these given borders really are.
In order to finance their ambitious TV pilot, they started a crowd funding campaign on indiegogo. So have a look at their site and if you like it and want to see the finished film – please share and even donate! They really need our support. Let´s help them to make it happen!!
