MACHT MIR DEN TEUFEL NUR NICHT KLEIN


A deal with the devil – a person offers his soul in exchange for diabolical favours – is a recurring cultural motif you can find in folktales all over the world, in novellas like Chamissos "Peter Schlemihl or in popular horror movies (remember Alan Parkers "Angel Heart"!).



In a new screen printing book by Poste Aérienne ten artists now reflect the faustian bargain by the means of the „black art“ of paper cut. 

Four befriended artists – Bene Rohlmann, Michael Zander, Sung Hee Kim and Falk Nordmann – also contribute with really great artwork. Thanks to them!



This fine 16page silkscreen book (size 28 x 37 cm) is now available, printed on 250g paper from Hahnemühle, in a edition of 80 copies.

cheers,

PAPER-CUT ARTS

A new, three-part paper cut. Inspired by traditional chinese paper cuts and by the marvellous book “The History of Chinese Folk Paper-Cut Arts”, but above all from my current work as a Guest-Professor for Illustration/Digital Illustration at the Jishou University 
in Zhangjiajie, Hunan, VR China.

PAPER CUT & SILHOUETTE


Working with paper cuts, the „drawing“ with scissor and cutter, leads to an ongoing interplay between line and object, inside and outside, black and white, positive and negative, light and shadow (good and evil?). Indeed a thrilling play with dualism!

Now I've finished a fine paper cut (original size 53 x 41 cm) for a forthcoming Poste Aérienne Book project. More informations soon!

HBK BRAUNSCHWEIG


Was ist eigentlich eine Graphic Novel? Bietet der Begriff vielleicht neue Möglichkeiten und Chancen um Geschichten zu erzählen und bildhaften Autorenschaften Freiraum zu geben? Werden dabei die narrativen Möglichkeiten einer Zeichnung – eines Bildes – unterschätzt? Oder ist der Begriff heute ausschließlich reines Marketingmittel?

Wissenschaftler, Zeichner (u.a. mit David von Bassewitz, Hannes Binder, Paula Bulling, Martin tom Dieck, Frank Flöthmann, Ute Helmbold, Dieter Jüdt, Judith Mall, Falk Nordmann),Verlagsvertreter und Feuilletonisten diskutieren zur Kultur des Erzählens mit Bildern vom 02.–04. Juli an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HBK) in Braunschweig. Das Programm zur Veranstaltung und weitere Infos findet man hier.

Artists, scientist, publishers and journalists are invited to discuss new ways and chances in telling (and selling) picture-stories around the term "Graphic Novel". More informations here.
