Juno Pilgram: Zeug

"Zeug" means "stuff" in English and is about all the things we accumulate in our apartments. The more stuff we have, the more shelves and cupboards we need to storage all our books (I know this problem), clothes, vases, toys, shoes etc. And what's next? We try to sell all those things at the flea market or on ebay, but it's a lot of hassle to do all the stuff ready for sale and mostly you get very little money for it, right? Imagine your apartment would be empty, how much space you would have!

"Zeug" is written and illustrated by Juno Pilgram and published by Jaja Verlag this month. I like everything about the comic: the intelligent story, the black and white illustrations, the small square format, the layout of the front and back cover. Actually Juno Pilgram has a different prename and works as an editor at the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" in Munich, in 2012 she took some time off and studied a trimester at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Read about her experiences here (in German).
