Mikrokosmos · Hamburg

Hello there! My mikrokosmos book tells a short
story about my "flathunt" in Hamburg.
Some of you already know St. Pauli, Altona,
Eimsbüttel, Wilhelmsburg and these other great
parts of town.

Flathunting (I was surprised by that term, very fitting
translation) in Hamburg can be like sightseeing,
but as in Munich, it can really be difficult.
People often search for weeks or months,
and finally stay in minuscule rooms because of the
frightfully high rents. (especially artists :)

I like this very special town with the impressive harbour,
spacious alleys and beautiful architecture,
Alster channels and the many 'alternative' districts,
not to forget the big illustrators scene.

Hamburg has a great energy.

On monday the books go to the printer - in Italy!
Best regards, Boris


Rise & Fall

Last week I prepared a new illustration for Berlin newspaper TAZ. Completing an essay about rise, glory days and current decay of the Karstadt department store empire.

Fingertips (Mikrokosmos)

I managed to finish my Mikrokosmos book. :)
'Fingertips', a song by Stevie Wonder was the inspiration.
In the beginning I was struggling with the colours. But now,
I think it's quite nice to see the subject of Motown misicians 
in red and blue colours. It's a totally different approach 
than the black and white stuff I've done.

Mr. Robert Johnson

Here‘s a snapshot of a new project I‘m working on. I‘m in the state of trying various layout-things, bringing together my pencil drawings with text elements, looking for suitable typo fonts a.s.o. Think I will tell you more as soon as the first double page is finished. Ok?

Whalehunter Doublecards

Some pieces of the „Maybe“ series, all in all 20 cards signed and numbered. I really enjoyed the manual designwork with scissors and paper odds!

Dirty Black Summer

Hi there,

these are some personal pieces I drew every now and then from life, from imagination, from images and movies. Recognize any films?

Wishing you well,
