The answer to both questions is: "Drawing weird tractors for my grandfather.“
I’ve studied Communication Design at the Hochschule München in Munich.
During my studies I’ve started working as an illustrator for several magazines – especially for NEON Magazine.
I did an internship at the NEON graphic department and after that Jonas Natterer who was the art director at that time hired me regularly for freelancing work which was pretty awesome!
NEON was so to say the 'door opener' for me.
I really love holding workshops for kids! I’ve done it several times the last years and nearly everytime was a blast!
Teaching different creative techniques to kids or developing comic characters with them is really a lot of fun!
Some of them have such a fertile imagination which is pretty entertaining and also very inspiring!
Haha – that’s where I get my ideas from – I steal them from lil' children!
Concerning work: Always do backups! You can guess what the the disaster was ;)
Don’t be so fucking scared – it’s gonna work!
After some start-up difficulties (in every sense of the word – I broke my leg on New Year’s Eve 2016) it went out really really well!
