Fred as usual

...the new Fred Fisch-Illu deals with Florida Rolf, the well known german social welfare freeloader and his shady popularity he got by means of the BILD's articles.

Rat as usual

you may think I'm not doing anything but drawing rats. Nope, that's not the case, but I'm not allowed to show the illustrations I do for my commercial jobs in public (you know... the old problem).
So I expand my rat petting zoo by introducing:

Die Wilden (the wild ones)

and Die Waghälse (the daredevils)

the daredevil is the winner of the Kopfkino routs-competition. Gamers were challenged to make up a new and unique rout and send it to the Kopfkino Team. The daredevils by Jens Borjaryn made the race and will be published in the next rats-adventure-book (and the winning author got a print and original sketch of his rat as a price *wow* ;)

The Chinese Year of The Rat

On February the 7th (so one week ago) the Chinese celebrated their New Year 2008. The Chinese calendar is based on an astronomical system and regulated by the moon phases, which causes that the New Year starts on a different day each year (so no wonder I missed the right date :)
I don't wanna talk about the calendar system (just look at wikipedia if you are interested in it), but about the fact that the New Year 2008 is the year of the rat! Yeah! So after my last year's efforts to draw mean, ugly and mutated rats I thought it was time for some serious rat sketches to please the great Chinese Rat God :P...

Happy New Year!
