1. If you could have one superpower which one would you choose and what would you do with it?
At the moment I'd like to be able to teleport anywhere I want, without leaving any traces.
And with no traces I also mean that once I disappeared, people instantly forget that I was there. Got captured by some bad guys? Teleport away and people forgot whom they wanted to capture. Been seen on a camera? Teleport away, the footage disappears from the data. It's less normal teleport and more like partly rewriting reality I guess. I haven't fully thought about how it'd be like living with that power, but I'd keep away the baddies from my trail and that's what I want the most: avoiding being in the center of attention of villains, because no matter how strong you are, people can be really damn clever and I do not underestimate my foes.2. What was the ugliest piece of clothing you ever had to wear and on what occasion?
Not the ugliest but the most uncomfortable thing I ever had to wear was a Lederhosen which was wayyy to small for me, back then I was 6 years old or something. I had to join some kind of festival but couldn't sit down because it was so damn tight, making me look like a tiny log in a lederhosen leaning against a chair whenever I tried to sit. Little did I know that this very problem of mine became a (pretty stupid) trend lateron in the future called planking...3. What did you once believe in that later turned out to be completely false?
This happens to me more often than I'd like to admit. Sometimes it's just a word I kept writing wrong for years (definitely, NOT definetly), and sometimes it's being at a party and thinking that the nearby lake's level isn't that high, so it's okay to go out and get some fresh air and you make a step forward and suddenly *sploosh* i.imgur.com/i5VYyxg.jpg
. I laughted it off explaining to my buddies that I wanted to give myself the "Jesus-Test" by trying to walk over the lake.4. What would you write on your tomb stone?
It was fun, thanks for having me around.
Now cheer up and grab something to bite.5. What's your biggest source of inspiration?
Whenever I hear a song, I fall into a specific mood and I like to use that mood to draw. Scary pictures need scary music, is there action in my image then I need energetic music. When it comes to boring parts like lineart or something else then I prefer podcasts.
Sometimes it happens that stories form in my head which accompany the song, making it more intense overall. I sometimes think of animating a few of these head-stories but that just eats up so much time that I quickly put that idea aside.
Yeah, I really can't draw without music.6. If you could exchange one of your skills for another one, what would it be? In other words: What skill would you give up and what skill would you like to get for it in return?
As silly as it sounds, I'm pretty good at whistling, though I prefer to do it when nobody's around. Nevertheless, I'd exchange that skill anytime for being technically skilled. I have mad respect for people who can craft tables, install pipes or repair pretty much anything they can get into their hands, being able to repair or improve your car, your house or just anything is an art of its own in my eyes.7. If you could turn into an animal (real or fantasy animal), what animal would it be and what would be the first thing you do in your new body?
Turn into a dog and live with a loving family, I think that's pretty much the best thing you can do in that case. What dog? Probably something bigger, a Golden Retriever or a German Shepherd.8. If you'd write a book about rules for a good life, what would be the first rule in it?
Treat other people as you want to be treated.9. If all art was destroyed tomorrow and you could only save one piece of art, what would it be?Wanderer above the Sea of Fog
by Caspar David Friedrich. I have a thing for wandering/traveling and this image is, for me, pretty much the essence of a true journey.
Needless to say, my favourite picture of all time.10. If you could turn one movie, book or game into reality, which one would it be?
I have no idea.
A lot of people say how cool it'd be to live in a fantasy world (there's even an own genre in animes called "isekai" which is just about this very idea), but frankly, that would be incredibly dangerous and scary in the end. I'm happy with this reality.
Although, if it would be for a limited time, I'd love to see Terry Pratchett's Discworld
in reality. Strolling around in Ankh-Morpork, witnessing this mad city with my own eyes, probably getting politely mugged sooner or later... rest in peace, Sir Pratchett, still haven't finished all your books, but I'm getting close. An outstanding series, please give it a try and read.11. If you could bring back one extinct animal, what animal would it be and what other animal would you accept to go extinct in return?
I'd bring back the Tasmanian Tiger, simply since I'd love to see one in reality. There's some old footage but it's already old and just really sad to look at.
I'd make Ticks go extinct. I hate them and nobody needs them.12. If you could meet one historic person and ask him/her one question, what person would it be and what question would you ask?
Alexander the Great, how the hell did you manage to get that elephant over the alps?!?
