Waiting near my house for the guys at the print shop to staple and trim 60 copies of Understanding Picklets, (in German, with a rather handsome green cover), I tried my best to justify being in Berlin while Melbourne shivers.
Job done, I think.
So now I’m ready to meet Berlin-based illustrators and pitch the picklet platform to them in their native language. (Thanks to Mark Tuente for providing the German translation of my mini-comic.)
Next week I’m going along to the monthly Stammtisch of Illustratoren Berlin with a few copies of the comic and we’ll see where it goes from there.
Ben Hutchings (@benhutchings) has delivered a final version of the picklet he has created with Jase Harper (@guhcomics) and Arran McKenna (@azzamckazza) so the only missing piece is a fully functional iPad/iPhone native app. And the only thing standing in my way are long summer evenings in the beer gardens of Berlin.
Wish me luck!
