Christmas in Friedrichshain – part 1

It’s taking me forever to colour it, so I’ll just publish my diary comic from the winter holidays in installments … Shoes, mental illness, media consumption, strange dreams, and unglamorous Berlin life …

SWEET PEAS WATERCOLOURS

Some watercolours of the piggies in my book Sweet Peas that I painted for the Gothenburg Book Fair last year, with some backstories about them.

But at the Gothenburg Book Fair this September, as a warmup exercise before my signing sessions, I drew little random piggy pictures in the panels of this notebook, and it’s almost like a fragment of a comic about petty criminal working class piggies …

Self portraits

In Hohenschönhausen and in Kreuzberg, as a piggy and as a human.
