snapshot was taken shortly after my arrival in England, and this camera-failure
happened to produce a picture which seems to describe my state of orientation
at the time quite accurately.
was a period of quite drastic changes in my personal life. Due to numerous
circumstances my life offered me a lot of (partly contradicting) impressions
and impulses, hence I felt an irresistable urge to start drawing. I have
spent a lot of time with pencil and paper, which helped me a lot coming
to terms with all those impressions I had. Also it was the last time in
my life working as an employee for a company (LKW
WALTER). From that time onwards I decided to do whatever I was going
to do on a freelance basis. Quite idealistically, since I could not quite
fathom the entire dimension of such an idea then. Fate as well as a lot
of well meaning people, however, repeatedly helped me a lot along the way.
this period I left the classical music more and more behind as an active
musician and expanded my style as a drummer in various different directions,
from Underground to Latin-Rock (a‘ la Santana).

all the in-house printed matter as well as the organisation and distribution
of all office material.
