das bärenbuch

2014
drawings, painting and collages
literally everything and lemon juice

I made this partly for my bachelor work and also for me personally as I had this project planned for years. At the end of 4 months of nothing but creating artworks with jokes about bears I had created a ton of material of which i chose 122 works for the book print (which is 244 pages in dina4 format). At the exhibition of the bachelor works of my communication design studies there were many people who asked me if the could buy the book of which I only printed 3 for display. I collected the email contact of every potential buyer and at the end of the evening I had about 200 mail adresses on my list. So now off course I had no choice but printing the book. I started a crowdfunding campaign collecting 10,000 € for printing 1,000 copies of das bärenbuch. I went on book fairs, fleemarkets and all kinds of events to promote my book and the crowdfunding campaign and after 3 months working my ass off I sucsessfully collected the money and started printing. It was hard but also really worth it. Images of the book itself can be seen here.

Das Bärenbuch has its own page. Visit it to see more and also to buy the book on here
