Update: "Florian, are you positive that this is B-Hero's pet?"
No. In fact quite the reverse is true. (In this connection I want to apologise to my wise writers and co-designers who are working on this project with me for tolerating all those abstruse input of mine.)

Website


My studio's website went (still going) through a relaunch. I'll miss the old sepia coloured site, but it was full to the bursting point. So - bye, old jalopy. Hello, new one.

Egon Schiele




Egon Schiele is one of my fave artists. So it's no wonder that he is a source of inspiration. For finding new conceptions on designing characters, for instance.
