New news!

Theater Madness!
As mentioned in a post before I am cast member of a play that will take place every Wednesday in May in New York. It’s off-off-off-off Broadway – a project by Jason Ellis and Co., who is a member of nerdNYC, a message board for people such as me. The play’s title: Barbarian! It’s a story about a wandering, singing barbarian who kicks ass and saves male damsels in distress. I am honored to die several different deaths in the play while playing a two-headed monster, a townsperson, a guard, a ninja and a lizard woman. Below is the poster I designed for the play (this time with typography by Jason Ellis)!


School Madness!

I have loads to do for school: I have to finish three pieces for the Digital painting class, an oil painting for the traditional painting class and I have to finish my historical overview for the thesis. I think I will manage, and so far I still enjoy all of the classes. See some of my oil paintings below: Please keep in Mind that they are all exercises, and that I am still not comfortable with traditional media at all.
Below is the piece I am currently working on for digital painting class - it shows the different steps I undertook. It's not finished yet - about 60% are finsihed.




Illustrating for Kleine Zeitung’s G7
I am the new illustrator for the G7 magazine of the Kleine Zeitung, a new weekly magazine published in Graz. Have a look at it. I think my illustration is usually to be found at the last page together with an awesome article my different authors. So keep a look-out! Below is the illustration for the first issue, which accompanied an article by actress and writer Pia Hierzegger.


Xoth – Reprinted!
Xoth will be reprinted. Another 500 pieces in soft cover will be printed in time for the Comicfestival Erlangen 2010 in June. I created a new cover for this edition PLUS a Xoth spin-off short will be put into the new edition! I will post more details as soon as I know them! I am really happy with the new cover though!

Graz, I’m coming!
I will come and visit good old Graz 25th of May-18th of June. During that time, my room in NY is available for rent, so contact me if you’re interested. I don’t know yet where to get a phone from in Graz but you can always reach me via e-mail! Also, I won’t be in Graz 3th June-5thJune, because I will visit the comic festival in Erlangen! I can’t wait to see all of you and have a drink in good old Parkhouse!

Random pics from NY!

I have a vendetta with the people who dress up as statue of liberty! I know they want me dead! But you won't get me the easy way, motherf****&%

Yay, Erlangen! Always great!
And my Snake-thingy-guess was quite close to the Lizardwoman-role. Right?

Seems your are an "Arbeitstier" (eager beaver)!

Thomas: I only play a lizard woman in the very last scene! I play many things, we just don't have enough extras! :-D

Annina: yes mam!

Love the traditional paintings!
I am also very proud of you being illustrator for the new Graz newspaper, which is, on my opinion, pretty cool :)

No reason to hide your paintings, hun! Especially like the bottom right one!
