Idling in the afternoon print queue on Graefestraße

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.

First German edition of Understanding Picklets

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!
