I have worked on a list of comic book titles in several roles: conceptionist, coordinator, and art director.
Each project requires a different and unique combination of attention and expertise to mold it into the best possible version of itself.
That understanding and care is what I pride myself on bringing to a project.

What you always wanted to know about Beethoven but never dared to ask…

…is revealed in this graphic novel by Peer Meter and Rem Broo as they channel a wide variety of condoling
visitors, friends and admirers, that gather on the Maestro’s deathbed.

Stories about his genius are told alongside anecdotes touching on less heroic aspects of the dearly departed.
In the telling of those stories the hypocrites of Vienna paint a not so flattering picture of Beethoven,
themselves, and everything in between.

Selected notes and praise from the german press:

  • “Wer alles schon weiß über Beethoven: Das hier verblüfft, ja, macht sehr viel Freude, das Buch.”
    Natasha Pflaumbaum, hr2 Published On: 2020-03-31
  • “Das Buch bietet skurrile Situationen, aber auch melancholische Reflexionen – Komödie und Tragödie.”
    Niels Beintker, BR, BR Klassik Published On: 2020-03-26
  • “Die Bildsprache ist imposant, wo sie es sein darf, und brüchig dort, wo es der Erzählung dient. Das ist so hübsch wie schlüssig.”
    Jan-Paul Koopmann, taz Published On: 2020-03-25
  • “Eine groteske und amüsante Graphic Novel.”
    Christa Sigg, Münchner Abendzeitung Published On: 2020-03-20
  • “Mit dem Comic (…) zeigt Peer Meter, mit wie viel Energie und Eigennutz die Nachwelt am Beethoven-Pathos gearbeitet hat und
    zugleich zerlegt der Comic dieses Pathos immer wieder aufs komischste.”
    Andrea Heinze, RBB Published On: 2020-03-19
  • “Ein sehr kurzweiliges und stimmungsvolles Porträt des Genies.”,
    börsenblatt Published On: 2020-01-09T
