Dear followers and friends,

To be honest, when I created this blog three years ago I was not very sure how to handle it. I was not sure what to share, how often I would share etc. With all those social media platforms, facebook, instagram, deviantart – who would be even interested in reading a text here?

But I decided to use this space wisely, now: I want to write reviews every quarter of the year. This is for all those who are interested in having an overview of what is happening with my art. And it is for myself since I believe that regularly looking back and acknowledging what has happened will help me to move forward more strategically, more passionately.

Since my last blog post have been uploaded such a long time ago, this first review will be on the year 2017. The next one will be about the first quarter of 2018, the second post about the second quarter etc.

So, 2017 has been a very exciting and rewarding year. I have made huge changes privately and professionally and I have not regretted any of them so far.

Time flies and my life feels like a chaos.Salam-Schalom 1b
A positive chaos, although my body is giving me signals by muting me – my voice is gone for three days now.

So, here’s some news: I quit my job to start a new one in Berlin –  back to the roots. This means: Moving within less then 3 weeks – a challenge that won’t prevent me by following my artistic career.

The 3 most interesting news for now:

Hamburg Neueinrichtung_tuffixLife is unpredictable, subhanallah (“Glory be to God”, said when you’re impressed by something). Sometimes you’re trying so hard to reach a specific point in life and although you keep pushing persistently it won’t work. It won’t work because it’s not the time yet. And because something else was planned for you, something that comes to you so easily, you won’t understand how and why.

After having presented some artworks at the concert against racism in the Lagerhalle Osnabrück on Friday, I had the pleasure to visit Vienna for 25 hours for an empowerment-comic-workshop. It was so much fun!
Thanks once again to the organizers, hosts and to every participant who came and shared her story. I love every single comic strip that you’ve created and I really hope we will see your results, soon (:

More impressions.

I am very excited to visit the Austrian capital for the first time. I will be leading a workshop for young women as part of an empowerment project called “Sichtwechsel”!

Leaving for the “Diocese of Trier” tomorrow to teach religion teachers how to use comics in schools. Not sure if I am going to tell them the right things but let’s see. Looking forward to it!

I have been featured in the Danish newspaper “Weekendavisen”, last weekend. I don’t understand a single word (though you can guess a lot when you know the German language) but the interview was quite pleasant so I naively expect no nasty surprises.

As some of you might know, my digital journey as an artist had started on deviantart.com. It is an amazing place full of creative people, who love, make and share art in all its facets. Six years ago, I had decided to engage in this great community. I enjoyed the feedback of various people all over the world and it was due to deviantart that I managed to actually start earning some pocket money with my artwork. Three years later, I wanted to reach a German audience since most of my comics refer to the life in Germany. Again, I had decided to enter a whole new community: facebook. And again, I was overwhelmed by all the positive feedback, the support and the cooperations that this community offered to me.

I was invited to illustrate some articles about ” remembrance” in the Austrian university magazine “Progress”. Very interesting articles, e.g. about “whitewashing” and why movies like “Exodus” and other media tend to erase the history of people of color.
