What’s New

You’re viewing the newly-launched version 2.0 of Argon Cobalt! After more than four years of having the same layout up, it was bittersweet to see it go. ;_; Rip robots and rotating gears.

Added some new projects on the Design and Comics sections: Octopart, Unicef, Halt’s Maul, Berlin Am Anfang, and more. There’s now also a new section, Lulz.

One of my comics, Halt’s Maul, was published in the most recent edition of Die Streichelwurst.

As always, follow me on Instagram to see work in progress, including my collection of graphic stories and vignettes, The Rotten Apple.
