T
urtle Tales* is a humorous and slightly quirky comic strip about a bunch of animals in their toddler years struggling to understand the world.

What sets Turtle Tales apart from other strips is their clever scaffolding grounded in philosophy, literature, music, and art. These aren't your daily funnies drawing from Americana only.

Typical stories that would be spread out on one through four panels deal with questions of general life – why are things the way they are and not different? And how do you cope?

The Turtle Tales style is whimsical, gently humorous, distinctly humane, and occasionally downright outlandish.

The Turtle Tales characters are open-minded towards the world, sharing the belief that happiness can be achieved only by meeting life's challenges and opportunities.

This is mirrored by the loose drawing style which I think bears a little more “human touch” than you will see it many a comic strip these days.

So far, the strip has seen the light of day in magazines and newspapers as diverse as The Writer magazine, the New-York-based H.W. Wilson group, the legal ezine, LEGAmedia, Deutsche Universitäts-Zeitung, Wiener Zeitung, Westermann and Oldenbourg publishers, and a few others. The strip has also inspired my illustrations for the Rowohlt Verlag book, The Little Bestiary of Wonders.

 

Turtle Tales Main Characters

Fritz the Bird

This is the average kind of bird, interested in anything as long as it stays shallow. He’s carefree, warm-hearted, and always busy. And somewhat conceited about his looks, too (though noone understands why that is).

Max

A scientist, philosopher, and literate, this smart little creature has set out to understand the world in the quest of truth, even though truth is unattainable. “Real life,” however, has a tendency of turning out slightly different than what philosophy assumes.

J.S.

A serious composer and musician, J.S. plays the cello beautifully. Hedgehogs have a hard life, and he knows it. Johann Sebastian Bach is both his name patrion and his favorite composer. It is quite a bit of a challenge to try to pursue his trails.

Fran

An artist, and a good-hearted all-arounder. The art of being a snake affords countless challenges in life that get analysed with Fran’s best friend, his log.

Stardust

A butterfly girl, always inquiring about life and such. Questions that drive some folks up a wall.
