Home to Paris HOME2PAGE

Open the curtain for the new Home to Paris website, that I've drawn and designed in their ideas. You see their stage from the hall cleaner's point of view after a succefull gig. Do you smell the sweat, smoke and alk that perfumes the air?

Home To Paris SNOW

It was the whitest turn of the year since centuries and fittingly Home to Paris (will they ever arrive there?) released their new album called Snow. The release party took place at the Gleis22 in Münster again and like usually they played their indi-ska-balkan-pop-mix to a capacity crowd. Was fun to witness it.

This is the poster for the concert. I played Mother Hulda (Frau Holle...), let it snow and turned the stage from their new homepage into a wunderful winter wonderland!

And I used the same picture for the cover and case design of the new album Snow: This time it comes around in a fancy digi-pack!

Homepage, poster and CD became well-rounded and I'm already looking forward their new ideas and topics.

Also see the designs of the HtP-albums Point of View, Melodienwagen and Disco Circus

Fredificated fames

For the next issue of the book columne, Fred had to slip into the clothes of a bunch of promis. Can you tell who they are?

New Blog Header 2011

I guess you already noticed it, I just added a new header and changed the colour scheme of my blog! And the Blogtopus replaces my old wise rat (don't worry, it didn't die, it just went on pension...), but:

Year 11

Happy new Year v2.11! Hope you all had a good upgrade!
To follow the same procedure as every year, I can show you my new calender for 2011. This time Fridolin, the funky pharmacy fox invented a time maschine, that may be look like an apple i-dixi mobile toilet, but it works!
Taming mammuths in the Ice Age, watching the conquest of the paradise, modelling for Leonardo DaVinci, listening to Mozart, being traced by Sherlock Holmes or finally celebrating the new year in a future Manhattan - the adventures of the Frido have never been that spectacular before! (I just got a call from James Cameron who wants to make a 12 month long pharmacy calender-movie instead of Avatar2 (...I think Andy Serkis will play Fridolin, but that's not verified, so sshhh!)

Ok, jokes apart, it was real fun again to draw the calender and it turned out ways more detailed than the last one, but it was worth the effort. And who detects him-/herself in the second last picture (november/present-day) will be in the movie too ;)

Frido in the course of time...
