"The City of Dreaming Books" Graphic Novel

Some of you will already know about this, but I have never made an official announcement on my own blog. For more than two years I have been working on an Graphic Novel adaption of Walter Moers "The City Of Dreaming Books". The story will be published in two books with each about 100 pages.
Walter Moers is writing the text and also drawing a pencil sketch for each page and I have the pleasure to paint the final illustrations. We already made good progress, but there is also a lot of work left.

Today I can show you the first preview image, Hildegunst von Mythenmetz´s arrival in Buchhaim, one of the large spreads of the comic.

For more information (in german) visit the official page zamonien.de or Comic Kladde. The blog is run by Philipp Spreckels and he met me some days ago for an interview about the comic and the colored book of "Käpt'n Blaubär". Link to part 1 and part 2.
