There are many people, that I’ve “collected” in my “on my way”-sketchbook. And now it’s time to make them to my own characters ;) Everyday I add one character into this picture. Now I don’t know what is it gonna be. The white canvas is like a stage, there will be a lot of roles, who are coming up, and there will be a story. It must be fun. ;) Here are the pictures of the first week.

I’ve been back from Angoulême comic festival for a week, and finally I’ve got the time to scan the sketches that I’ve drawn on my Angoulême-trip. In the photo (by “Jaroo” Jonas) above you see our german web-cartoonist-group from the left to the right: Adrian vom Baur, Jeff Chi (Spinken), Tim Gaedke (Doppeltim), Yi Luo (me), Maximillian Hillerzeder (Hillerkiller), Jonas Röhrig (Jaroo). Oh, that little head in the middle, please ignore her XD, she was not in our team.
There’s too many things to tell about the week in Angoulême, great comic festival, countless diverse gorgeous comic books, and I had a lot of new ideas and also toothache (I’ll draw my teeth-stories some day down)… Since there are already vivid reports (with comics and photos), made by Adrian, Hiller(1+2), Jeff and Jonas. I’m just gonna tell you something with my sketches.
According to Jeff, our train had one minute delay. Our first aim was Paris!
Obwohl Germany and France are neighbors, the landscapes are totally different. And different as in Germany, between big cities I didn’t see little towns, but just a lot of grass field, little trees, and little pools…
Jeff (left) won the Wizard-game, with a lot of scores, much more than the others! So you know why he was smiling ;)
Jonas was our great photographer, he made us a lot of pretty photos, and grabbed the very moments, which we’d like to remember.
We drew a lot everyday, we did at least four pages for our improvised comic (comicjams ). The whole comic festival was great, but I think our comicjams were even greater. At the beginning we thought we could drew this comic as our Angoulême-Report, but at the end, It turned out to be an epic adventure (with our true experiences in it). Everyone put his own genial idea into it, and everyone drew everyone as his own super character. It was full of surprise and gaga ideas^^. I’m so looking forward to this 28 pages comic. Click here to see part of the comic on the Jazam-Blog, and the first page was posted on 31. Jan. Have a look at the date of the posts, if not, maybe you won’t understand the story.
Hiller, der last panel Hiller. He’s so good, that he oft received the important commission to draw the last panel of the day, and also the last panel of the whole comic.
I slept on the sofa bed in the living room downstairs, where Ganesh runs around. I liked that and felt happy, that she came softly at night onto my bed and slept on my legs.

3rd february was the day to leave. We came to the train station very early, no panic at all. Sadly it was too early that we couldn’t buy our favorite breakfast at the nice Sandwich Man, who we visited everyday. We’ve planned to draw him as a hero character in our epic comic, but as the story was once out of control, he was finally not in it. Maybe next time in the continuation next year…
As we arrived in Paris, we had fabulous weather and an hour free time there. We just sit on the square in front of the east train station and drew. It was the only corner I’ve seen of Paris, besides the subway stations. I’ve heard a lot of things about Paris, most of them are bad…But at that moment, the Paris on that square during the sunset, it was warm, beautiful and peaceful.
Angoulême, see you next time! And learn more french for you ;)
