TINY TALES

Is it possible to find value in the incongruous? Can the ungraspable be comprehended and explained? Is there any sense in supposedly nonsensical art and creation? This zine contains a collection of illustrations based on tiny short-stories focusing on the absurd and the incongruous. Each of the stories show an answer to an unusual question I asked as part of a survey – where I introduced an absurd scenario in order to challenge the imagination of the participants and to explore the variety of nonsense, creativity and humour.

Vinyl Cover / Virtual Band

This is my design for a record sleeve I had to do for university. The task was to create a virtual band based on a real one – which was in my case alt-J – and coming up with a design for a fictional EP, featuring two songs of the band. The illustrations should not only depict the background and meaning of the songs but also contextualize the characters in a world created around and about them.

The good magazine

"The Good Magazine" stands for less haste and more life. It's content is based on the key points slow journalism, mindfulness and inspiration as well as the feeling of being "offline" and getting the chance to calm down for a moment. I created four magazine covers with the topics love, food, holidays and fashion. As it is meant to be a series, published within one year I opted for a consistent, very analogue look – to create a strong visual as well as topic related contrast between the matter of "slow life" and life dominated by technology.

FAKE

A poster I've created for an exhibition dealing with the topic "fake". It is inspired by the Allegory of the Cave by Platon and should depict the fact that our perception defines the reality we are living in.
