In their latest book “Nimm 2, zahl 3″ (Rowohlt), the journalist team Thomas Ramge and Marcus Rohwetter explain the pitfalls of marketing strategies and online shopping venues that operate using subtle psychological tricks to maximize their profit through customers unaware of just how cleverly they are being fooled. Using whimsical style, the authors propose ways to shop smartly.
My cover illustration shows a penguin selling a refrigerator to another penguin, while my interior cartoon-style illustrations accompany the individual chapters of the book.

This is my latest cover illustration for a book by Josef Joffe who elaborates at great depth about what makes Jewish humor. In his words, Jewish wit is at the same time aggressive and self-deprecating in a whimsical way. The author is a co-editor of Die Zeit, Germany’s largest weekly newspaper.
