Hey, nice to meet you.
Really. I'm glad about the chance to introduce myself to you.
I'm an artist
from Germany, illustrator
, artist of sequential art
(comic) and author
Life teached me the abilities to write, to draw and to communicate through pictures.Please lean back
, in a few seconds I'll tell you something about my projects and goals – And here we go!
I draw since I was born. No – that's a lie. But like many others, I started to draw at kindergarden. One of my first drawings were people – for real – I started to draw my mum, my dad, my grandpa and grandma ... actually all people who surrounded me the most at this time. Of course my paintings were not perfect. I wish, I have old drawings from this time I could show you: these people I draw – they looked hilarious! Big, baldy, fat balloons → their body, their head at once. From these balloon-bodies they spread their legs and arms out: The legs just sticks x the arms, sticks with other 5 sticks at the end and every stick of these five had a point at the end. The arms looks like frog arms. I draw them and show them my parents, my relatives and told them: "This is mama, this is papa, this my sister, ..." ........ actually, they looked all the same. They had just different sizes.^^
Yeah, the elementary school was the time where real shit happened. I think it was 1999? Pokémon in Germany. Man~, the kids in my class went crazy about this stuff. And me too. Of course, I played the blue edition, but to draw them (Pokémons) was a lot more exciting. And you hadn't to wait long and the other animes followed the way from Japan into German tv. I loooved'hem! I loved them all! And I wanted to draw them all! I always imagined me when I was a kid, I'll become a old fashioned artist in Paris standing at the river Seine with my easel and my Basque beret and draw the whole day with oil paint – but the Anime showed me a different way of art. At this time I wanted to become a true Mangaka ... the best Mangaka on earth! (and the greates artist on earth).
Time passed by and I met a lot of and different people. I worked on many, different projects, had a lot of talks and followed a bunch of great artists. I visited art courses, tried different styles and revised my own art again and again – and I'm still doing it. I'm still learning. And I still want to become the greatest artist on earth ... albeit in a different way. I want to be Stady, Stady One. I hope you understand what I mean. I'm here now and I'm curious where I'll lead the way. Do you wanna join me on my journey? C'mon, I have a seat for you.
One of my biggest favors was always to tell stories through pictures. I mean ... hand-drawings were may only way to leave messages for my parents (when I was a kid in the kindergarden).
Now I use my mobile phone to send them my messages – but the love to tell with pictures has remained. And I'm planing great things. One of my life-projects is: Quest Runners
QR evolved slowly in the highschool and broke out at the 24h-Comic-Day in Leipzig, Germany. That was the beginning of Quest Runners. Now I'm working on a web comic and a print comic of QR.
I'm working on the world of QR, their planet, their nations, their history – their creation of life. I'm writing scripts, books, manuals | draw and design creatures, clothes, cities, weapons | and of course stories I want you to tell.
Through all the years I kept visiting conventions with my artist mate Ming-Hatsu
) as exhibitor. We exhibit under the name NEXT DIeMENSION
... we sold stuff like our projects, but I've never sold my stuff. So I make a change here. I'm planing (and already work on) a print comic book of Quest Runners. I'll continue exhibit on conventions – but now as Stady One – and sell high-class QR comic books. That'll going to be awesome!
Envolving the world
Of course the world is not ready yet. It going to be an epic full documentated world with different nations, plants and creatures, cultures and mysteries. I write down all these stuff in text documents and hide it as references for my stories. One day I'll make something like a compendium ... a lot of work, isn't it?
Quest Runners is the main but not the only thing I want to tell. From time to time I take a break and tell you other short stories about different things and ideas that borders me. I have a lot of cool plots waiting for me to be drawn. The future will show how I'll publish them – whether as web comics or printed books. In the past I started with these little stories my profession as a comic artist (or artist of sequential art). The most of them are in my mother tongue and deleted from the web. But maybe I'll upload them again someday. Let's see.
Additional to all these things, I enjoy different social community sites (for example I'm writing a blog post on DeviantArt
now), twitter some sh*t, blog and reblog on Tumblr and pin some cool stuff on Pinterest. And I have additional projects like designing a board game or open my first art store in a few months. I make animations and I have to work of course. There are plenty much building sites I manage – but I enjoy it.
Finally a lot of work but it'll happen a lot of cool stuff too in the future.
I'm building something crazy with Stady One and Quest Runners.
Be a part of my world, be ready for Stady.
