Geo Mini Editorial

Here's one piece of mine, I created for a pitch, regarding a science magazine for children, the Geo Mini. It's an illustrated quiz-doublepage.
There were many great entries in the pitch, but mine was one of the few lucky ones to actually be printed and paid.

Our galaxy

Another page from my sun, moon and stars project.
Our milkyway galaxy as it could look like.
This picture was a lot of work.

Sun, moon and stars

Before I did my diploma, my last project was a book about our solar system.
Here are two pages from this work.
The illustrations were done with acrylics.
Originally it was thought to be for children, to explain the stars around us, but although the illustrations are good, it now seems more fitting for an older age, so dont wonder aout the text.

Zerg Overmind Diorama

Here's a work I did for the diorama contest from Blizzard Entertainment and Alienware.
That must have been around october 2010.
For those not familiar with it, this is the Zerg Overmind from the Game "StarCraft2" by Blizzard.
Luckily my modelmade it among the Top5 (no particular order, the judges just chose their favorite 5), which granted me a 3000$ coupon for the Alienware Gamer's Shop.
Thank you Blizzard and Alienware.

Finished work

Here are 4 examples from my diploma project, the children's book "Connie und Viktor auf Monstersuche". The pages are not in a particular order, in this case, it's just for show.

Diploma exhibition

I almost forgot, here are two shots from my diploma project exhibition, on campus.
Please excuse the quality, I still dont have a good camera and Im no photographer either.
As you can see, the cover is a little darker than in the digital version.
My project was even noted and shown in the local newspaper.
Now that's a reason to buy one.
