Hi everyone,

After a succesfull participation at the Frankfurter bookfair,
with Poste Aérienne, I'm glad to be a member of
this collective with very good illustrators and graphic designers

Especially for the bookfair, I've made a small edition
of 20 little handmade books called 'Portraitfolio'.
It shows a collection of portraits I've done in the last few years.

Hi everyone,
here’s the full interview I mentioned below. It is quite a motivation for me to be productive again. I was somewhat undecisive what to do in the last two weeks, besides a few sketches, some butter-and-bread-jobs and the nagging »I-have-to-update-my-website-soon«-bug that is in my head, I haven’t done something substantially lately. Well, the time will come...

Warm regards, Peter


New Kids On The Blog

I was a bit undecisive on what to do with
my "kids with animal masks" pieces I did a few weeks
ago - first the wolf on the kart and the pig on
the trike (boy, that sounds weird), followed by the
duckboy and the kid in the lion costume.

Since the Bologna childrens book fair is around the
corner and thankfully our school has later deadlines
for submissions for the exhibition that happens
parallel to the main fair, I thought that they looked
so nice in a group and made a fifth kid, the
boy with the raccoon mask on the far left.

I did some minor corrections on the older pieces,
most prominently a light yellowish paper tone (to
counteract the sometimes a bit harsh looking contrasts),
but I was surprised how well they fit together, considering
that I never really planned them to be a series.

In other news, here´s a pretty big piece I did for
a new exhibition at Rotopol in Kassel with
the topic "Secret Service". I was going a bit
crazy with the accesoires on this one, and it turned
out more like a mix between a spy, a policeman
and a cowboy. I´d say that this is one of the most
complex pieces I did till now (in terms of
layers and single elements). I wouldn´t want
everything I do to be this evolved, but I´m quite
happy with it. (Finally one of my drawings has some
sort of background - something I almost always have




TTC Gallery from Denmark have published a
large collection of zines from around the world.

It has a focus on the - let's say insane side of zines,
lots of deviant energy, but also playful ideas, and
it presents my Encyclopedia and Varanasi books.

Fontnames illustrated

This is just a little re-use of an illustration I once did for SLANTED, a Typo-magazine. They decided to make a calender with all illustrated fontnames (
http://www.freistil-online.de/einzigartig-fontnames-illustrated-calender-2010). It was very succesfull at the bookfair (as the publisher tells) and is now available and well done.

The fascination of diorama, miniatures and installations
inspired this little wooden box. Feels like I'll probably
do some more three-dimensional things.

Greetings, Boris


Belletristik #09 - Special Edition

Belletristik - magazine for literature and illustration - has published a special edition accompanying the festival Zeitkunst (a small festival of chamber music and contemporary literature) which has taken place from 07- 08th November at the Villa Elisabeth, Berlin.

I was asked to make the doublepaged cover-illustration and I have to say, that I really like the final version, printed in b/w and gold (sic)...
