SHAKE YOUR TREE at the screen printers

Do you remember when we anounced a new series of Shake Your Tree mgazines? Since then lots of things have happened – meeting, drawing, cooking, meeting, eating, calculating, writing – all together with many motivated and inspiring people. And now, finally, we are screen printing. Whilst you are watching the World Cup we are standing in the SDW in Neukölln, day and night, always together with our screen printer Louise Drubigny. The new handmade zines look amazing. Put the release party date 31st July in your diary and listen out for rumors.

The Drawing Class

University Of Applied Sciences Würzburg – Lectures in Drawing and Illustration

The summer term in Würzburg has almost come to an end. It’s presentation time and I am happy to see the results of this term’s drawing sessions. Over the last few months we had enough sunny days to leave the lecture room and do some location drawing. We went into the woods, to  stone quarry, harbour, a busy market square and more. Besides we visited the International Comic Salon in Erlangen for some impressive original artworks and exhibitions as well as loads of comic books. Thanks for a really nice term, guys.

New Studio

There is a new desk in town. I am happy to tell you that I just moved into a really nice new studio. Close to Görlitzer Park and between the two canals, it is located in an area that will make it hard to concentrate on work in summer…

I share the loft with five nice guys who put a lot of love in the old industrial space to make it nice, tidy and cosy. Check their websites for some great work: Lisa Rienermann, Lisa Schweizer, Susanne Stahl, Till Wiedeck and Julia Rompel. And of course you should check out our host: Anselm Reyle.

We even have a kitchen and a conference and dining area. …and as soon as possible a table tennis table. So - just pop in for a cup of fresh coffee.

Landjäger Magazin - The Tee Issue

The Landjäger released its latest issue. This time it is a t-shirt magazine which comes in a very nice packaging: a screenprinted box with the t-shirt (nicely wrapped by Bea) and posters each showing one of the motives of the tee edition, all featured with selected articles. There are five different motives you can choose from, one created by me.

Artist Talk

Sebastian and I will give a talk about Shake Your Tree tomorrow at the .HBC in Berlin.

For the production start of our new edition of fanzines we will talk about Shake Your Tree’s future project as well as what happened til now. We are invited to the The Permanent Bookshop Salon Event at the .HBC. This is the final event of a series of salon events initiated by The Permanent Bookshop, focusing on independent publishing production and distribution.
