This will be the last commissioned picture of Sandra and Woo characters for some time. I need to think about new subjects that are worth to be drawn in color first. During the last months, 18 drawings have been published on our website. I want to thank all artists for their great work.

In other news, I’m now a member of the German Pirate Party. I don’t agree on some of their political goals, but they are currently the only political party that credibly fights for citizens’ rights and against censorship. In September 2011, they achieved a spectacular result in the Berlin state election with 8.9% of the popular vote.
