KICK-ASS > Illustrations for Süddeutsche Zeitung


Editorial Newspaper Illustrations
Illustrations for
Süddeutsche Zeitung

I have been a regular contributor to Süddeutsche Zeitung from very early on in my career. These days, artwork I create for this daily paper comes in large size and full color, as opposed to black and white years ago. I have received a European Newspaper Award of Excellence for several pieces I did for Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung, published in Munich, is the largest daily newspaper in  Germany.
 

Feature: Time for Reconciliation

 

This cover art for the Easter edition of Süddeutsche Zeitung is titled "Zeit für Versöhnung" ("Time for Reconciliation"), and illustrates the dire need to come together as a society in times of the Corona pandemic, climate change, and the war in Ukraine.

Feature: Domestic Heroes

 

This wimmelbild for Süddeutsche Zeitung is titled "Helden wie wir" ("Heroes like us"), and illustrates domestic challenges.

Feature: Bureau-Crazy

 

Here's a piece I made for Süddeutsche Zeitung for a feature on bureaucracy. I had a full page to fill, part of which was also featured on the first page.

Feature: Wine

 

This is my winter cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art for the winter edition that shows a warm Christmas interior setting against the backdrop of a winter landscape, snowman and all.

 

Wine in Winter

 

Feature: Wine

 

Here is my autumn cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art for the fall edition that shows two hands saluting their wine glasses amidst a fallsih landscape.

 

Wine in Autumn

 

Feature: Wine

 

This is my summer cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art for the summer edition that shows a group of people sitting under a beautiful tree, drinking wine and enjoying a sunny day.

 

Wine under the Summer Tree

 

Feature: E-Book Writers

 

I have illustrated an article for a Süddeutsche Zeitung weekend special (SZ Wochenende) on e-book writers, showing on a full page multiple writers crowding an e-book reading device, and chipping in to write a novel together.

Feature: Wine

 

This is my spring cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art for the spring edition that shows a bunch of wine barrels laying around in-between daffodils and spring snowflakes. I also made an interior illustration showing a your woman who can't decide between red and white wine.

 

Wine Barrels in Spring

 

Feature: Angry People

 

I have illustrated an article for a Süddeutsche Zeitung weekend special (SZ Wochenende) on "Wutbürger" (enraged citizens) who take to the streets in protest of controversial issues. For the full page, I illustrated a large crane swinging a massive demolition ball crowded with little protesters.

Feature: Wine

 

This is my winter cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art for this edition and an interior illustration showing a couple dreaming of far-away travels.

This is my autumn cover for Süddeutsche Zeitung's three-monthly SZ-Vinothek wine supplement that got printed both in a tabloid newspaper format, and on a glossy wine brochure. I created the cover art and an interior illustration on Austrian wine for this edition.

Feature: Olympia

 

This collage piece was made for Süddeutsche Zeitung to illustrate a supplement on the upcoming Olympic Games in London. The five Olympic rings make for the shape of a lion, with a variety of athetes doing their thing in and around those rings.

Feature: Construction

 

Here's a full-size spread I did for Süddeutsche Zeitung's "Wochenende" (weekend) edition for an article that pleads to appreciate mistakes made on construction sites. I designed a large scaffolding full of little workers doing everything wrong they possibly can.

These are some of the illustrations I created for a Süddeutsche Zeitung special on natural heating resources. I went for mixed-media collages for this one.

Book Series: Library of Humor

 

I have created the cover art for the Süddeutsche Zeitung Bibliothek des Humors (Library of Humor), an edition of 20 all-time favorite humorous novels edited by Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany's largest newspaper.

Authors for this collection of humor classics by one of the funniest writers today include Woody Allen, Peter Ustinov, P.G. Wodehouse, and Heinrich Böll. >more

 

Library of Humorous Novels

 

Feature: Wine

 

Here's another multilayered illustration that I created for Süddeutsche Zeitung for their SZ-Vinothek wine supplement. I again used warm colors and an intricate design for the piece.

 

Selection of Wine

 

Book: Human Nature

 

This book from Süddeutsche Zeitung Edition publishers is a quirky look on the world of emotions—from pride and revenge to schadenfreude and shame, from bewilderment and desire to voluptuousness and envy. My cover illustration assembles selected emotions from the book in whimsical style. I created 25 two-colored illustrations for the individual chapters on the following topics. >more

 

Christian Weber: Gemischte Gefühle

 

Feature: Energy

 

This multilayered illustration was created for Süddeutsche Zeitung on the topic of sustainable energy. It's pretty intricate, but you can spot a lighthouse, trees, the sea, a kite, wind generators, a power plant, the sun, and the like.

 

 
 

Energy

 

Feature: Derivatives

 

In this expansive four-page feature for Süddeutsche Zeitung, I created half a dozen whimsical-style illustrations for a special on derivatives. I decided to stick to black and dark blue for the artwork that includes an info-graphic design explaining what derivatives are.

Feature: Wine

 

Here's another multilayered illustration that I created for Süddeutsche Zeitung was for their SZ-Vinothek wine supplement. I again used warm colors and an intricate design for the piece.

 
Wine Glass
 

Feature: Wine

 

This pretty intricate and multilayered illustration for Süddeutsche Zeitung was created for the SZ-Vinothek wine supplement. I used a lot of warm colors to suggest Italy, France, food, sun, coffee etc.

 
Food and Wine
 
Feature: Cadavre exquis
 

In my latest assignment for Süddeutsche Zeitung, I have composed a cadavre exquis for the career section that runs across a major part of the page.

This formerly surrealist concept works with folded pages; the top parts showing the head of a person or animal, the middle parts the torso, and the bottom parts the legs.

My "exquisite corpse" shown below was designed in a slightly three-dimensional fashion. It consists of a cowboy, a crocodile, a gorilla, a robot, a little boy, a tree, a skirt, and a fish.

 

 
Cadavre exquis
 
Feature: World Market Leaders
 

In another assignment for Süddeutsche Zeitung, I have created a number of illustrations on world market leaders. The four-page extra features interviews with market leaders in a variety of different branches.

I came up with a large splash illo in collage style and a bunch of circle-shaped icons that visualize the various branches (wind turbines, toys, etc.). I also designed colorful silkscreen print emulations of the enterpreneurs that got interviewed.

Feature: Luck
 
The Süddeutsche Zeitung has published a double-page feature on happiness and luck that features a large opening illustration of mine, as well as a handful of smaller-sized icons.
 

 
Lucky Thoughts
Soccerball Bear Face
 
Young-Old Midlife Crisis Unhappily Married
 
Butterfly Girl
 
Feature: Renewable Energy
 
A bunch of mixed-media illustrations on renewable energy has been published by Süddeutsche Zeitung. The spreads look really cool, and I am very happy about them :-)
 

 
Animals in Tree
 

Wind Energy
 

 
Smiling Sun
 

 
Water Energy

Feature: Derivatives
 
These two images have been created for Süddeutsche Zeitung. They illustrate the topic of (gulp!) financial derivatives and warrants (”Derivate & Zertifikate”), and employ rather unusual imagery.
