This one is pretty old but I still like it. In December 2011 Saarbrücker Zeitung asked me to summarize the whole year for the title of their new year’s eve issue – based on my Weekly News Grind project, just with a little bit more color. The final illustration features a selection of the year’s most important persons and events – both international and local.




Clockwise (don’t worry, you don’t need to read this, there are more pics if you scroll down):

Catherine Mountbatten-Windsor & William Mountbatten-Windsor (got married),
Peter Müller (became a judge at Bundesverfassungsgericht – the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany)//Thomas Gottschalk (quit hosting one of the most famous German TV shows)//Dominique Strauss-Kahn (resigned from being IMF Managing Director after allegations of sexual assault)//Steve Jobs (died in October)//Osama Bin Laden (killed by a Navy Seals team in May)//Christian Wulff (President of Germany who got in trouble because of an unmentioned credit)//Hosni Mubarak (had to step down during the revolution in Egypt)//the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster//Zwickauer Terrorzelle (a right-wing German terror group which was uncovered in November)//Anders Behring Breivik (killed more than 70 people in Norway and got arrested)//Muammar Gaddafi (killed during the Libyan civil war by one of the rebels)//Vicco von Bülow aka Loriot (famous German comedian who died at the age of 87)//Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (former German defense minister who had to resign from his position)//Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (became Minister-President of Saarland, Germany) and Winfried Kretschmann (German green politician who dealt with the public protests against Stuttgart 21).
