In the North Sea lies the sunken town ‘Rungholt’. The unholy citizens are cursed to a life of boredom.

The release of ‘Prometheus’ is a good opportunity to take a look at our aliens. Drawing this huge double page for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung full of film monsters sure was a lot fun.

Feature in Playboy
‘O-Zapft is’ was said in the october issue of the German Playboy. That means not only can you see some girls nude that used to wear a Dirndl before, it also means that we were able to illustrate another feature.
