Does This Happen to Everyone? featured on Publishers Weekly. "Taking an empathetic and respectful approach to sex education, Von Hollenben and Helms blend humor, factual information, and candid advice. A valuable resource that normalizes and affirms sexuality while suggesting that puberty is a time of both physical and intellectual growth.”
Carmageddon - special LA edition
Hello Gestalten Verlag
I am an artist and illustrator based in Geneva and I am sending you an illustration from a special zine project I made for my friends I never Read for the LA Art Book Fair.
About my work I can say:
Whimsical characters, a joyful mix of human, animal end vegetal lifeforms, are at the center of my drawings. Pseudo-documentary facts melt together with fabrications, all things are possibly alive and looking for the next ultimate experience.
Those stories and narrative situations take shape in drawings, animations, live projections and printed editions. The result is fanciful pop, made out of fast lines and a dose of black humor.
I hope you en joy the ride! You can explore more projects on my website and get a look at my self-publishing project "Elma Olmak's Ketchup Temple".
