Pizzeria Disgusto – new book coming soon!

Good news, everyone! I’m very excited to announce my very first Kickstarter project! The campaign will start on Tuesday, May 9th at 5pm CET (17:00h) and will go on for 30 days!

Pizzeria Disgusto will be my new cartoon book about the weird and funny side of Italian cuisine. 80 pages full of illustrated puns and wordplays…

I hope to raise the money to pay for printing the book and to cover packaging and shipping costs as well as fees and taxes. And of course financing all the rewards you can choose from. Like a limited edition pizza box, art prints and original drawings. And there will be some early bird specials for the first backers of the Kickstarter campaign.

With your support, I hope to be able to make this book come to life!

Dogfish Head Interview

I recently worked together with Dogfish Head brewery on the poster for their Official Beer of Record Store Day 2017. They just put an interview with me on their blog. You can check it out here.

Besides the poster my design was also used on portable Crosley turntables, beer coasters and on a Dogfish Head x Crosley truck. The truck with my design is a rolling gallery and can be currently seen in 29 US cities from March 3rd until April 22nd. Details on https://www.dogfish.com/record-store-day/the-tour

I’m really happy to be part of this project and the roster of amazing artists like Tara McPherson, Drew Millward, Marq Spusta, Rich Kelly and Jermaine Rogers who worked for Dogfish Head before.
