After graduation he decided to study communications design at Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin. His thesis was the comic ”Wir können ja auch Freunde bleiben.“ This book, as well as his following works were translated and published in countries such as France, Poland, the USA and South Korea. His biggest success was ”Kinderland,“ which won most successful Comic of the Year 2014 as well as the prestigious Max-und-Moritz-Preis for best comic.
