Katja Schwalenberg

Katja Schwalenberg’s Etwas Besseres Als den Tod Findest du Überall (roughly translated as You Can Find Something Better Than Death Everywhere, thank you GCSE German) tells the heartwarming tale of a group of melancholy creatures wrestling with suicidal tendencies. Each spread reveals the morbid fantasy of a different animal – a donkey hangs himself in a tree while a chicken drowns herself in a mug, and a poor cat obsesses over becoming a scarf. Beautifully drawn and hilariously paced, this is a life-affirming little piece of graphic brilliance. Needless to say the rest of her portfolio is well worth a browse.
