LOST PROJECT – UNTER FREMDEN STERNEN / Novel 2018

LOST PROJECT – UNTER FREMDEN STERNEN is my first Novel. I published the first part of the Paleo-Science-Fiction-Trilogy as illustrated Paperback in German Language in November 2018 on FLYING CHEESE .

Inhalt:
Die Erde im Jahr 2383: Der Einschlag des Gringer-Asteroiden steht unmittelbar bevor und mit ihm das Ende der zivilisierten Welt. In allerletzter Sekunde begibt sich Colonel Matthew Anderson zusammen mit einem Team von Wissenschaftlern auf eine gefährliche Reise weit in die Vergangenheit der Erde, um die Menschheit zu retten. Andersons Sohn Tom wird dabei zum blinden Passagier wider Willen und landet in einer Welt voller Wunder, aber vor allem Gefahren.

UNTER FREMDEN STERNEN ist der furiose Auftakt der Paleo-Science-Fiction-Trilogie LOST PROJECT. Eine explosive Achterbahnfahrt in eine unbekannte Welt. Ein einmaliger Genre-Mix und eine definitive Verneigung vor dem Großmeister des Abenteuerromans Edgar Rice Burroughs.

„Ein spannendes und packendes Buch“ (comicreview.de)

„Der Beginn eines großen Abenteuers“ (phantastische-fluchten.blogspot.com)

„Die Spannung war perfekt dosiert und ich konnte mich von der Geschichte kaum losreißen.“ (Leserbewertung)

„Denn dieses Buch ist eines, das out of the box denkt und genau das ist es, was für mich das Lesen besonders macht.“ (www.sarahlippasson.wordpress.com)

LOST PROJECT – APPALACHIA / Novel 2018

LOST PROJECT – APPALACHIA is the second part of my Paleo-Science-Fiction-Trilogy which I released in German Language on FLYING CHEESE as illustrated Paperback in November 2018.

Inhalt:
Die Mannschaft des KPG-Projekts hat die ersten zwei Wochen in der Kreidezeit überlebt. Die folgenschweren Ereignisse durch den Aufstand der Soldaten hat das Team empfindlich getroffen. Die Station ist angreifbar und der Transportgleiter im unerforschten Dschungel verschollen. Tom, der siebzehnjährige Sohn von Colonel Matthew Anderson, muss erneut beweisen, dass er den Fährnissen der Urzeit gewachsen ist. Es bleibt nicht viel Zeit, um die riskante Mission zur Rettung der zukünftigen Menschheit vorzubereiten und im Schatten des Dickichts lauern ungekannte und albtraumhafte Gefahren.

APPALACHIA, der zweite Teil der packenden Paleo-Science-Fiction-Trilogie LOST PROJECT, katapultiert seine Leser*innen unvermittelt ans Ende der Kreidezeit und entzündet ein actionreiches Feuerwerk, das SciFi und Monsterhorror zu einem genreübergreifenden Abenteuer vereint.

»Von Anfang an baut Robert Rittermann einen
hohen Spannungsbogen auf und es gelingt ihm,
diesen zu halten. Cover und Innen-Illustrationen
stammen ebenfalls vom Autor. Sie lockern den
Text auf, wenn der Leser vor lauter albtraumartiger
Überraschungen Herzrasen bekommt.«

BUMPERMAN – Comic

Client
Steinhaus GmbH VISIT

Briefing
The company needed a short comic that shows their products and services in an entertaining way.

What the client wanted from me
The client wanted a distinct visualisation from their competitors.

What I wanted from the client
The client gave me full control over storytelling and creation.

Realization
After I outlined the story and got client feedback, I did a storyboard, which visualised every determined panel. With some minor changes detected in another feedback round, I realized the full comic with digital pens in PhotoShop and lettered it afterwards in Indesign.

Conclusion
Through the well structured process of creation and transparent communication, I had fun doing this small project. It was always clear, what to do next. I’m always looking for great companies to work with!

FERMATA – Shirt Design

Client
Joscha David Mohs, Singer/Songwriter VISIT

Briefing
Joscha needed a shirt design for his Winter 2017 UK-Tour. He wanted to visualize the fermata / bird’s eye.

What the client wanted from me
Joscha wanted a near term artwork to a fair price.

What I wanted from the client

I appreciated to have the possibility to experiment with and develop my quick drawing style.

Realization
First I did a quick sketch. Basing on this I made the final work with PhotoShop and sent the result to Joscha, who gave it to the screen printer immediately.

Conclusion
I love to do last minute work, if it’s feasible. Helping clients with a high quality illustration gives me great satisfaction. I’m always looking for great bands to work with!

ANIMATED CHRISTMAS CARD

Client
Schleuniger AG, VISIT

Briefing
The company wanted an animated christmas card for their distributors and customers. The client decided to make it different than the year before, where a story based card with a flying Santa was used.

What the client wanted from me
The client wanted the whole design. The whole thing should happen last-minute.

What I wanted from the client
The company assigned the whole art direction to me.

Realization
The company has many international clients and distributors, so I decided to create a simple winter landscape without any christmas figures. They determined the size of the movie and made the score available. First I did a storyboard and sometestimages to determine the style. I chose to fully digital which gave me the advantage to have all drawn components animation-ready. With the help of a technichal editor of the company who has pretty good knowledge in After Effects we build the scene with the rough animation. First I planned to use drawn snowflakes but they were to heavy and so I used the particle system. After that I did the fine tuning with the colors and editing. After some inputs and adjustments from the company which touched the message in the end of the movie and the animation speedad the animated christmas card was finished.

Conclusion
The client gave me full freedom with the creation which was a lot of fun to me. And the company got the movie by the deadline. I always look out for working with companies.

ARTWORK KERNS „KEIN HANSA MEHR FÜR DICH“

Client
KERNS, Band, Style: Pop Punk, VISIT

Briefing
The Band needed a cover illustration for their EP „Für Dich Kein Hansa Mehr“ (Hansa is a low-cost German Beer Brand). Small Bands usually have very small budgets for realizing their stuff. So, if they decide to not do things DIY, they plan to get something valuable for spending little money.

What the client wanted from me
The client wanted a short dated „good“ artwork to a fair price.

What I wanted from the client

The client had to give me full control over the complete art direction and execution.

Realization
I found a postcard from the painter P. S. Krøyer from the 19th Century on which a party raised their glasses. The motif from a mother with her daughter was pretty suitable for the title of the record. I did the picture as a very own interpretation. I drew directly with biro pen on paper, without any corrections or sketches. Subsequently i added a digital texture, typography and the logotype, which the Band provided to me.

Conclusion
Because of the direct way of working the picture benfits with loose lines and a spontaneous look and I was able to give the Band a short dated and fair priced illustration. I’m always looking for great Bands to work with!
