More Mice

CheeseMice_1998_SAs I was reasonably pleased with my mouse pyramid in the post with the dinosaur cartoon, I thought I’d share this one as well.

Stumbled across these wee guys while sorting old papers. Had completely forgotten they were knocking around and probably have chomped their way through whole mountains of Cheddar, Edam and Stilton…

Never scanned them before as it would have been far too memory consuming for the machines in olden days…


Happy Easter 2014 – Nothing like a job well done…



‘There’s nothing quite like a job well done!’

– ‘Saubere Arbeit – einfach ein gutes Gefühl!’


By way of contrast: breaking with me own tradition of pencilling in blue – this year’s Easter greetings!

this had to be turned out in a rush, like the sketchy appearance of the pencil,

feel free to share, as long as you don’t crop my mail adress, thank you,


have a great Easter everybody!

and mind your egg intake


Lamarama continued – this week: ALABAMA


Inspired by an actual mail contact with a guy from Alabama looking to commission an artist. This dates back a month now, approximately.

Unfortunately there was quite an amount of spec work required in order to be merely considered for the job and so I spend a fraction of the time this would have cost me on the following rhyme. Further on down is a German version, I prefer the English one, though, as it has better rhythm, esp. the middle part, mefinks.

There was a lama in Alabama

who’d been told chewing gum

would make him feel instantly

calmer and rather cheerful

not so glum

but his stressful disposition

caused the pressurized emission

of a bubble filled with spittle

drenched him much and not a little

„Blast, all over my pajama“

cried poor lama –

oh, the drama!




Es war einmal ein Lama

das lebte in Alabama

und bekam den klugen Rat

für STRESSSYMPTOME – in der Tat ! –

Kaugummi kauend zu entspannen

darauf vertrauend sogleich begann

das Lama

Aus deprimierter Position

sah’s Lama sich erhoben schon

doch sein nervöser Speichelfluss

bewirkt nun, dass zum guten Schluss

‘ne Spuckeblase schlicht zerplatzt

durchweicht es steht – Laune verpatzt

– MIST! Alles auf den neuen Pyjama! –

klagt das Lama – oh, der Drama!



have a fun day!

Neujahr – New Year – Gerbil-Postcard

12_NuYear_Gerbil_HÄÄppi_txt (700x556)

Krankheitsbedingt gibt es in diesem Jahr keine neue Karte und die des Vorjahres muss herhalten…

Due to the flu no new new year’s wishes, and I am posting last year’s instead:

A friend’s gerbil had both her auricles torn off in an intraspecific competition, also known as carrot quarrel…

well, focus on the positive!

To all of youse whose past year left room for improvement: have a wonderful, exciting and above all healthy year full of pleasant surprises.

Yours sincerely
