About:

Re-Brushed revisit to one of my friends, family and fans favourite little characters I ever drew until now. (Well, and he’s a big favourite of mine, too) I felt somehow I need to reBrush the old works on new papers, since it has all been black and white and was done on 80g/qm, plain copy paper and did not look all that well and clean any more after six years.
I guess it was worth the trouble, it looks fresher then before.
And helped me set the tone for “Mortimer” and thinks to come for him and his Daddy.

About the Original:

This little comic was an Excercise for my Studyings. Absolutely had no idea what to do, until one Night at 5 AM I listened to the news, where a backing company got an award for having changed all their system machines from acoustical to visual signals, so a mute and deaf boy could start his education there.

Heavily impressed Me. Still does.

So I asked myself, why there aren’t more innovative companies and ideas like this. After all, everybody needs work. And every human needs a few things, always, like Food, Beds, Houses and …. well, basically every living being needs Food, Sex and will die one Day. But the worlds population grew from 1 Billion in 1900 to almost 6,5 Billions in 2006… maybe death needs an apprentice, too? Or son?

A few Hours later this cartoon was my result.

Hope you enjoy it.
