My year 2017

2017 was a really awesome and busy year! I had the pleasure to work with some great companies and publishing houses. 
I wrote and illustrated many books and products and I received lots of wonderful samples:

I had the opportunitiy to illustrate and design the new christmas collection for kids for the moses Verlag - 
which was one of my absolute favorite jobs ever! Here are some products from the collection:

I´m over the moon that my books are now available in so many different countries!

In may I showed my art for the first time at a trade show in New York: the Blueprint show. This was a little bit crazy, 
as I was busy already and taking time for the show was not easy for me. But this was something I wanted so much that 
I just did it. The show was a great experience and I met so many wonderful people. It was a fantastic time in New York.

Unfortunately I won´t be back in 2018. There are many reasons for my decision. The biggest one is, that first and foremost
 I´m a children´s book illustrator and writer and I want to concentrate on this in 2018. It´s also very expensive and
timeintense and for me (as a „parttime“ surface designer) I don´t think that it really pays off. But  I loved the atmosphere
and being together with like-minded people so much that perhaps showing with a small group of other artist would be a
good possibility for the future. We will see...

I also met two agents from Plum Pudding illustration agency at the Blueprintshow and I´m happy to announce that they 
now represent me for children´s books in the UK and USA. Have a look at my portfolio here:

In 2018 I want to slow down a little bit and take me more time for own projects (especially books). I also want to learn and  
try out new things. Instead of showing myself I will visit the Bologna children´s book fair and I hope to meet some of you 

I wish you all a wonderderful christmas time and a happy new Year!
