I was asked to contribute three drawings to ZEIT Verbrechen, a special supplement of DIE ZEIT, with a focus on crime.
I was very happy to get this job, because I have been listening to the podcast of ZEIT Verbrechen, for a while. In the podcast veteran crime reporter and deputy editor-in-chief of DIE ZEIT Sabine Rückert talks about cases she has reported on in the past. Often she has interviewed police and criminals involved in the cases and has been to the trials. All in all you get an eerily fascinating look at the underbelly of the old and the new German ‘Bundesrepublik’. The podcast (in German) can be found here.
The latest issue of ZEIT Verbrechen has been published in late November, it can be ordered here (unfortunately only in German).
With the magazine still so fresh, I though I will for now only show some sketches I made for the three large format drawings that are featured in it. I will publish the finalized drawings later on.
