Illustration for the Pacific Standard. About a guy who notices that he is running better without all the gadgetry, just listening to his “inner clock”.

Illustration for last week’s DIE ZEIT. Negotiations between the EU and the USA continue in spite of the tensions between the partners. The big guys have their mind set on a deal, the people are oblivious. This was integrated nicely into the layout - see sketch. And there were also a few good alternative ideas I thought, that didn’t make the cut. Art direction by Melanie Böge.

Illustration for Wirtschaftswoche. The curves represent actual market developments. First one was the final, but I like the lower one, with less detail, better of course. Art direction by Claudia Immig.

For Engelsloge, a German opera magazine. Terms of the opera explained: this time “Synkope” (syncopation, or off-beat). Art direction by Laura Schieferle.

Sketch Analysis II thought I’d go a little deeper into some of my previous drawings, and how they were developed. Maybe just as a note to myself. Here a sketch for the New Scientist - Inner Voice illustration, I made in June 2013. The sketch shows a lot more detail, that in the end was left out of the final drawing. The figures were sitting for example in Eero Aarnio -style bubble chairs, which became more stylized into two overlapping circles, symbolizing the brain hemispheres talking to each other. The face of the bigger figure was also left out and the pose changed, which makes the image very 2D except for the two talking figures - this puts a focus on them. Coming to think of it, the concept of a self dialogue is similar to this drawing I made earlier this year.So far for Sketch Analysis I. Stay tuned for the next one …

Illustration for this weeks NZZ Equity column. There are seals and guidelines for ethical investments, among others by the UN. But it is easy to get onboard for investors and there is barely any control if the guidelines are followed by the members - a paper tiger. Art direction by Catharina Hanreich.
