Well, if you think this world is is weird, you ought to see some of the other ones ! (Philip K. Dick)

Nobody knows better than graphic novelist, director, illustrator etc. Joerg Vogeltanz, born in 1968 in graz/austria as well as academic of literary and film/cinema-studies and awarded writer Thomas Ballhausen, born 1975 in vienna/austria, both sure-footed wanderers in the fields of gloomy anti-worlds, proudly presented the long desired part 2 of the anger diaries' first trilogy , "wired worlds" and made the most of the evening by including an on-stage-discussion, moderated by 'falter'-magazine styria editor-in-chief thomas wolkinger and, subsequently, showed a more than just fitting cineastic piece of art from the uk (THE NINE LIVES OF TOMAS KATZ) which completed the vespertine psychological de-programming of the audience.

Here are some photographical impressions of the evening (click2enlarge!):

Hey guys!!!

I hope there´s a comic drawing meeting coming in the near future. I´m eagerly awaiting more comic jams!
Unfortunately I couldn´t attend the latest get-togethers...

@Jörg: Is there a chance to take part in your FH lecture as student?

so damned hot...

the temperature was sweltering when we met for jam number 5; so we were prepared that most of our fellow drawers would stay in their swimmingpools and cryogenic tanks. nevertheless, here are some impressions of the fifth drawing jam... anna-maria introduced her very talented friend from new york city, becky, and the evening turned out as highly amusing, even with much less contributors than usual.

More stuff from the 4th drawing jam

Nice stuff, Jörg! I took some pictures of some of the drawings - I did not get all of them, so post them yourselves if you want. I had fun and hope to see more and more people coming. The drawings refer to following topics (in the same order): Alien weapons, male heroes, alien religion, female heroes.
