I'm super excited to be part of this publication by NordSüd. It's called "the revenge of the black cat", written by Katja Alves. The book features nineteen different Swiss myths - each of them is illustrated by a Swiss illustrator. The story I illustrated is called "Ein Erdmännlein will Heiraten". Since NordSüd is one of my favourite publishing houses (I find myself reading their books ever since) it's such a honor for me to be part of this valuable project!! ))

I was honoured with the “e. o. Plauen Nachwuchspreis” for my ink drawings. E. o. Plauen (Erich Ohser) was a famous German drawer and cartoonist. He drew for and against the Third Reich. An interesting and moving story.

The winning works are exhibited at Malzhaus (https://www.malzhaus.de/programm/ausstellungen/event/740120/) - there is another exhibition which shows my additional works at Forum Galerie K (http://forum-kunst-plauen.de/).
