Publication: "IKON"

After almost six years of work I'm more than happy to announce that my german publisher avant-verlag just released my new Graphic Novel IKON.

The book tells the almost unbelievable but true story of Gleb Botkin – the son of the last tsar's physician.


"IKON folgt dem Russen Gleb Botkin, der als Sohn des Leibarztes des russischen Zaren die Oktoberrevolution miterlebt und dabei seine engste Vertraute verliert – die Zarentochter Anastasia. Jahre später, im amerikanischen Exil, trifft der spirituell entwurzelte Ikonenmaler Botkin eine psychisch kranke Frau, die vorgibt, seine verlorene Anastasia zu sein und Anspruch auf den russischen Thron erhebt. Botkin, der sein ganzes Seelenheil auf diese tragische Gestalt projiziert, verliert erneut den Halt und verschreibt sich mit Leib und Seele seiner wiedergefundenen Ikone. Ikon ist eine – auf wahren Begebenheiten basierende – Erzählung über Verlust, Projektion und die Liebe zweier verlorener Seelen, die von der Brutalität des 20. Jahrhunderts gezeichnet wurden."


The book is available as a softcover and also as a limited hardcover edition with a signed artprint.
