This whole “MDE – Mörder des Eigenen” (Murderers of Individualism) Project was my Diploma.

______________________________________________

About the Work:

I started working on this Project when I was 15, but only as a Science-Fiction-Horror Story, for a Novel to a Book.
It felt good at the time, reading it some years later showed, it did not fuly hold up to what was expected on the Bookmarket aimed at mature Readers.

When looking for a Diploma-Subject, I came back to it and started drawing away. The Storyline as given, but I changed some facts.
It is more interesting to start a story in the middle and then, after the reader is totally confused, go back to the beginning.
This is

a) better for the Diploma, because I can skip the Introduction and can get to the Action fast
b) good for the Reader, since he will know immediately what is to come up, and not stop reading and leaving the Series after several published Issues because it takes a Road he did not expect and does not want to travel down.
c) makes it more interesting, because if the first Chapter is already entitled “What the Fack?!” (yes, I like to spell it with “A”, good for cursing but without it’s original meaning), it just makes more curious to see what this is all about.

Besides some small Elements on the Cover, the whole Manga was drawn classically by hand, using layout markers and india ink.
Even the Logotype was made by hand, carving andcutting out Linoleum and printing it manually untill I was satisfied, scanning it, and turning all white elements to black.

About the subject:

MDE means “Mörder des Eigenen”, which can not truly been translated in it’s meaning into english.
It would resemble something like “Murderers of Individualism” and “Murderers of your true Inner Self”, something into this direction.

The whole story revolves around normal people being thrown into a world controlled by zombie-like creatures, which are controlled by parasites, and can hardly be destroyed, since they always regenerate and mutate, much like John Carpenter’s “The Thing”

References to movies are made on every second page, and the most influence I got for this was from:

Don Siegel’s “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”
John Carpenter’s Interpretation of  “The Thing”

About:

Original Idea for this Illustration: An Illustration / Self-Portrait of Dave Bonneywell, Special Effects Artist, whose page “dbonneywell.com” seems to have vanished, at least at the time I am typing this.
I thank Mr. Boneywell a lot for this Illustration, it went straight to what I imagined for one Illustration, but could not manage completely myself, all my efforts loked so “duh” until I saw his Self-Portrait. I exchanged the Parasite, Mr. Bonneywell got replaced by me, and I tried to make it look similar, but different enough to be a standalone work.
Sadly I never could show it to Mr. Bonneywell. Hope he is all right and hope I can chat to him one day again, about this illustration and some more ^__^

The Illustration for the biggest side of the “MDE-DVD-Retro-Box”….. YES, it’s gross. And I love it.

The Title itself is an Hommage to “Hypocrisy’s “Slave to the Parasites”…. love the title, though the Parasites inside the “MDE – Mörder des Eigenen” Story are the parasites are a symbol for ideologies implanted into our heads by Mass-Media, unlike in Hypocrisy’s Track.

About:

One of the two Sides of the MDE-DVD-Retro-Box.

When someone is making his Diploma in the Academy I have been, it’s typicall you do not get a lot of sleep in these six months, simply due to the fact that you never have enough Blood in Your Coffee.
So to say, you are doing a lot of nerdy Things, when you drive you never know how you managed to reach your goal alive, and so on.
When a Friend of mine helped me to render this digitalized Head (which is an Hommage to the much more insect-like deformed head of John Carpenter’s Interpretation of “the Thing”) I told her, “Ouh, what a nice Colour, this looks so….” and we called this Illustration this word from then on. I know, this play with words does not work in Foreign language, I am Sorry…
we called it “Tuffi-Tucki-Tunti-Rosa” ^__^

About:

This is one Photmanipulation of the fictional “MDE – Mörder des Eigenen” Retro DVD-Box inside a german Merchandise and Music Catalogue.
Loved the final Design on how it seemed the Hands were holding the Boxes together.

Since the whole Project is an Hommage to the Movies of glorious old time, where more heart had to be put into movies then money and crappy CGIs, from the days when Movies still have been something inventive and creative, the whole DVD-Box was supposed to have a retro-feeling to it.
Therefore the DVDs were supposed to have 8cm in Diametre, like the Game-Cube DVD/CDs for Example. This way they would fit into Old-Fashioned Plastic-Boxed of VHS-Cassettes, where special inlays were made for, so it would appear you opened one of  the Mangas.

About:

Original Motive and Idea: Copyrighted by Capcom
Resident Evil, 1996/1997
Used for Diploma / Studying Purposes Only, no Commercial background.

To present fictious Commercials, Merchandise, Online Campaigns….. we needed Illustrations for the Diploma, we have been requested so, of course.
And as naturally as I tried to make it an Hommage to B-Horror from the Sixties to Eighties, I HAD to make some connections to Capcoms “Resident Evil”, who is a great reference and Hommage to most Romero-made Zombie-Movies (and some of Fulci, of course)

One of the most inspiring and cool atmospheric Motives at that time in Summer 2007 still was the depiction of Christ stroolling down a floor, Hands everywhere, and a giant rotting Zombie walking on top of it. This is my own Version. Here you can see the T-Shirt Version.

…bringing this Motive on the Shirt

About:

A Girlie-Fanshirt for “MDE – Mörder des Eigenen” (Murderers of Individualism)
We absolutely loved the Idea that the Exe is the same time luring in views by Men, setting a focus on the breast, and that the eye will differently depending on the women’s breast size.
Just fun lil’ stuff! ^__^
