Another editorial illustration for the november issue of Elle-magazine.
This one is about an up-and-coming
neighborhood in Montreal. It is a semi-industrial zone that has quickly
been overtaken by artists, designers and architects who are renovating
old blue-collar houses and abandoned factories and car repair shops into
homes, restaurants and bars.
For one week I had a project from the 'schlesische 27' in Trebnitz (a very small town close to Berlin) together with 30 students and three other artists. I was head of the foto & illustration group and we made stories about the mysteries of Trebnitz. Did you know that there is a tree which grows foot-leaves insted of real ones? It is because the blood of a missing child sank into that tree.
Also there is a cocodile that turns into a human every full moon, trying to get someone to swap the roles. Great week, great work, great students. thank you.
