SPOOKY 16/10/2020

how does a character come to life? – i 'm layin in bed watching the random patterns of the wall. i can see the head of monkey. pareidolia. i'm sketching it and fall in love with the softness of the shape.


spooky evolution drawing

i want to bring it to life. i decide to draw a story with the little fellow. i continue sketching to understand who xe is and what xer story is.

spooky sketches

understanding what i want to think about i draw a storyboard and start working on the comic. xe is called SPOOKY. xe is a ghost. the story i 'm drawing on is for the #17th issuee of the spring magazine with the topic GESPENSTER (GHOSTS).

spooky evolution

i'm shaping clay to get a 3 dimentional version of SPOOKY's head in ceramic.

spooky ceramic head moki

by sewing a costume of the character everyone can turn into SPOOKY.

spooky costume

i wonder how a shadow on the wall can take a journey and transform into a story about life and death, longing and love. SPOOKY.

you can read the full comic in the #17th issue of SPRING magazine or here on my website under comic.

I'm dedicating this book to my brother Thomas. When we were kids we were sitting in his room reading and drawing. He said he would draw comics as an adult. I said "me too".

The novel is about complexity. Stories are woven into each other. Parallels appear, new connections are made and causality dissolves. A rhizomatic network about love & death, relationship & community, critique of the system & search for meaning. You will find abstract dancing patterns and human like characters, talking plants and dreaming giants, shape shifters, animals & smart snowflakes. Narrated trough classic panel and freely associative drawings.

my publisher house Reprodukt has announced SWAMPLAND in their magazine:


"Wie begegnet man den Herausforderungen einer komplexen und zunehmend vernetzten Welt? Gleicht unser Leben nicht manchmal einem einzigen Waten durch eine Sumpflandschaft – ein falscher Schritt genügt und man versinkt im triefenden Morast? Und ist es nicht das, wonach wir uns eigentlich sehnen? Einfach zu verschwinden und all dem zu entkommen?

In SUMFLAND verknüpft Moki viele kurze Geschichten zu einer komplexen Erzählung über Leben und Sterben, über Beziehungen und Gemeinschaft, Sinnsuche und Systemkritik. Sie entführt uns in ihre wundersame Welt, in der Tiere, Alraunen und andere Getüme lebendig sind und sich – jedes auf seine Weise – den alltäglichen Unwegsamkeiten zu stellen haben."

reprodukt frühjahr 2019 ankündigung

first version sumpfland cover



in 2012, rae mariz and i worked out an idea for a series of books about endangered animals called STRANGER THAN IMAGINATION to highlight some species so fantastical it’s hard to believe we actually share a planet with them.

we began by researching mammals, sending each other photos and facts about the wildest “rare fur-covered beasts” we could find, and choosing 11 of them to feature. rae wrote poem-like infotexts to introduce these introverts to readers young and old, and follow them on tiny narratives featuring their particular peculiarities. i painted intricate portraits of each animal in their natural environments.

these wild spaces are vanishing due to a reckless idea that humans are the only species that matter. we hope that as readers discover the wonderful creatures living right now, on this same planet, that we’ll be inspired to make sure they continue to have a place in this shared world. while we search for a publisher for this larger project, we are releasing our collaboration as a set of 12 postcards.

you can buy this postcard edition to learn and share the secrets about these rare beasts. the money will be donated to NABU for endangered animals.

10 euro including shipping in germany - mail to:m at - thank you for you support!

QUART 20/8/2018

lily wittenburg and i did a contribution for "Quart", a magazine for culture from austria. i was putting 1000 paper bags with plastic parts collected from beaches in europe in the magazine. together with a card showing a painting and this text by the artist and autor lily wittenburg:


quart moki

Wir wandern auf den Fundhorizonten einer gemeinsamen Gegenwart, sie sind die Schicht die uns verbindet. Wieder und wieder auftauchende Gegenstände. Wind und Wellen verwischen die Beweise, indem sie mit Sand bedecken, was eben noch war. In diesem Reservoir schwimmend, wird es zunehmend schwieriger, Unterscheidungen zu treffen zwischen sich und dem Herzzerreißenden der Dinge. Maschinen vermögen es, Massen und Massen von Splittern im Ozean zu berechnen, aber Empathie
kalkulieren, das können sie nicht.
Abenddämmerung. Ein älterer Mann ordnet Pappkartons in einem Hinterhof, wir sehen ihn aus der Erhöhung eines Hotelzimmers. Täglich zwischen sieben und acht ist das Quadrat des Hofes sein Spielfeld. Eine Traurigkeit von hundert oder tausend Jahren Wiederholungen schwebt über ihm.
Seither gibt es für ihn nur noch zwei mögliche Beleuchtungen, Zigaretten
und Neonlicht. Leuchtreklamen. Von der Schrift strahlt ein stumpfer
Glanz ab. Gesichter ins Licht gesunken, wie in eine Flüssigkeit, gehen vorüber. Wäre nicht die Spur noch von dem Lastwagen, der die Kartons anlieferte, man könnte glauben, es seien immer die selben, die er zu Stapeln aufeinander legt.
Im Minutentakt von Wellenbewegungen trifft der Wasserschlag den Untergrund, zieht sich das Meer zurück, um eine Grenzlinie zu ziehen aus Fragmenten. Als Scherben deuten sie noch auf etwas Ganzes hin, das sich nicht mehr entziffern lässt. Von Salzen zerfressen, an den Rändern rund geschliffen und durch die Witterung in ihrer matten Farbigkeit einander gleich geworden, zeichnen sie einen Pfad, der sich aus tausend Orten zusammen setzt. Auf einigen findet sie noch eingeprägt die Aufschrift ihrer Herkunft. China, Taiwan, Bangladesh, France, Germany. Das große Zirkulieren von Minutenwaren und dann Jahrtausende des Driftens. Wenn sie auf das Wasser schaut, sieht sie eine virtuelle Wüste vor sich, für die die Dinge in ihren Händen zerbrechliche Zeugen sind. An Uferböschungen, im Gras sich zerreibende Überreste.
Die vom Wind Verlassenen in ihren Booten. Sie fragt sich, ob es überhaupt noch möglich sei, von diesem Strand als einem bestimmtem Strand zu sprechen. Besteht er doch aus Mischungen, die von so feiner Körnung sind, dass sie ins Unendliche gehen könnten. Es ist nicht mehr nachvollziehbar, welcher Partikel von woher stammte oder wer zu welcher
Welt gehört. Alles ist überall, immer, zur selben Zeit.

‘How to find the right way in a world as complex and entangled as ours? The challenges of our time are overwhelming. It’s like navigating through a swamp—one false move and it sucks you up and swallows you in. And that is exactly what you wish for. Escape and disappearance.’ In her new comic novel, ‘Swamp Land,’ the artist Moki tries to picture this complexity, weaving stories into one other, both mysterious and visionary. This exhibition further explores the cosmos of ‘Swamp Land.’

i will present the work in progress of my new comic album "SUMPFLAND" at kulturkapelle verwalterhaus / alter st.marien st.nikolai-friedhof / prenzlauer allee 1 /berlin

this music video is a tribute to LAMBERT



in 2016 i was working with the pianist and composer LAMBERT on a collaborative project:
an exchange of expressions where piano pieces transform into painting and paintings transform into piano playing. the collaboration has now been assembled. i'm happy to present the production of "SWEET APOCALYPSE". every track on LAMBERT's album goes together with a painting. the process of the this collaboration of the pianist lambert and me
was an interchange not a one-way interpretation.
see the paintings to the music pieces

i'm synaesthetic with an audio - visual perception.
the means if i listen to sounds i can see colors and shapes in front of my inner eye.
in this video i try to dance the sounds of LAMBERT's piece "waiting room"

rare fur-covered beasts 12/9/2012

this mammal is called okapi. it lives in the rainforests of congo. it's tongue is blue-black and so long that it can wash it's eyes with it. there is a tar-like substance leaking from the hooves that helps to communicate with other okapis in the same area.
together with rae mariz i'm working on a book about mammals. it's overwhelming to do research and find out about bats as big as bumlebees, pink milk sweating hedgehogs and blind moles covered with iridescent fur.

dear friends of nature,
a team of explorers has lately discovered an ecological niche where a huge amont of strange creatures has found an island position to rest. what these six scientists have detected is so special and so rare that they instantly wrote a guideline through the breathtaking place of nature listing the endemic beings - microscopic or monstrous, dangerous or chummily.

this kooky book (with 900 colored images) will be offered for free to all visitors of the dockville-festival in hamburg because the spot where the ecological recess is located is straight beside the festival area!
