Sci-fi-tinged nostalgia runs rampant in the illustrations of Paul Paetzel. The Berlin-based artist has a knack for both narrative and humor, whether it’s his comics, illustrations, or stray personal work. Paetzel has been part of the Berlin collective known as Biografiktion, also featuring artists Till Hafenbrak and Ana Albero.
“My stories usually come from the process of drawing itself,” the artist told Nobrow Press. “So my illustrations often end up in comic strips or stories. The origins of my tales are mostly things which happened to me or which bother me. My fears, my wishes and my needs.”
