Die 13 1/2 Leben des Käpt'n Blaubär

Welcome back to my blog.
It has been dead for a while now, but it is time to change that! : )

I want to start with "Die 13 1/2 Leben des Käpt'n Blaubär". The fantasy novel by Walter Moers was just re-released as a gorgeous new color-edition. I had the great honour to colorize the inward illustrations.

One highlight of the book is the new map of Zamonia, which is used as endpaper. The drawing by Walter Moers is crazy detailled and I had quite some fun to add the colors.

You can get an extract of the book at amazon.de.

Stay tuned!


  1. Wunderbar! Das gefällt mir aber gut.
    So bekommt "die Biege machen" gleich eine ganz neue, farbenfrohe Bedeutung.
    Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Florian! Tolle Arbeit.

  2. Looks amazing! I'm big Walter Moers fan, and I'm happy to find out that colorized version makes honor to his drawings :)
