My canadian agent is sending out christmas coasters every year. This years theme was 'Mad Men'. Inspired by the popular TV series.

marketing & fundraising activities for Tearfund’s Vision project in Uganda, Peru and Nepal.


charity illustration work in uganda

Für Tearfund UK habe ich im November 2010 in Uganda Illustrationen angefertigt.
So ein warmes Willkommen hatte ich noch nie. Eine sehr bereichernde Erfahrung mit vielen neuen Eindrücken, die ich nie mehr missen möchte.



Inbetween assignments I ry to paint. This is the last one I did.
acrylic on wood; 130cm x 90cm
Very dark and impulsive - but i like it a lot.
The poem used is written by K. Winkler.

work for free and feel happy

For the second year in a row, the Artists of AGM are offering to work for free for non profit organizations.
Last year I did some illustrations for an organization working together with canadas homeless people.
They didn’t have the budget to spend on original illustration work. When I was ask to help, I was happy
I had time and offered my services for free. It felt really great to do something for people in need.
It was really rewarding.

This year I will work together with tearfund (http://www.tearfund.org) on a very important and exciting project.
They were looking for an illustrator to join their inhouse creative team on a two week trip to Uganda. I think this is an amazing opportunity to experience truly rural African life in poor communities and at the same time do what i love most: making illustrations. I have been very fortunate and I am happy to give something back. I’m very excited and looking foreward to this trip.
I think it will be an amazing experience.
