Monster Limericks
 


Monster Limericks is my diploma thesis with which I graduated from HAW Hamburg, Fakultät DMI in January 2013. Combining my love for off-beat creatures, hand lettering and playful poetry, this book contains everything I love about illustration.


 

7 monsters are portrayed in unusual ways, each portrait spreading over two double pages, along with my own hand-drawn limericks. These misfits might seem menacing and dangerous at first glance, but you will soon discover that these are mostly harmless, rather silly, and actually very human fellows.


Monster Limericks
is fully self-published, and the first run is already sold out.

But don´t worry -  you can download the PDF version here for free!
