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 am showcasing some of my recent work here.

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: Domestic Heroes (March 2016)

 

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

Feature: Bureau-Crazy (April 2014)

 

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: Doctor-Patient Relationship (Nov 2013)

 

Here's a piece I made for Süddeutsche Zeitung for an article on doctor-patient relationships. The article suggests that traditional medicine where real people treat real patients is still superior to Internet-based knowledge. I went for a scherenschnitt papercutting technique emulating a tradition look and feel, and incorporating a variety of medical symbols.

Feature: Wine (Nov 2013)

 

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.

Feature: Wine (Sept 2013)

 

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.

Feature: Wine (June 2013)

 

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.

Feature: E-Book Writers (Apr 2013)

 

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 (Mar 2013)

 

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 (Nov 2012)

 

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 (Nov 2012)

 

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.

Feature: Local Heroes (Oct 2012)
 

I have illustrated an article written by Willi Winkler for a Süddeutsche Zeitung weekend special (SZ Wochenende) dealing with people who are feeling at ease with their particular cultures from different regions of Germany. I have showcased five different "prototypes" for the various regions here, which range from Bavaria to Berlin.

Feature: Olympia (July 2012)

 

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 (July 2012)

 

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.

Feature: Wine (June 2012)

 

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 and an interior illustration on Greek wine for this edition.

Book Series: Library of Humor (Sept 2011)

 

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 (Sept 2011)

 

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 (Sept 2011)

 

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 (Sept 2011)

 

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.

Feature: Derivatives (June 2011)

 

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 (May 2011)

 

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 (Mar 2011)

 

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 (Feb 2011)
 

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.

Feature: World Market Leaders (Jan 2011)
 

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: Renewable Energy (Dec 2010)
 
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 :-)

Feature: Derivatives (Nov 2010)
 
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.
