Illustrations for the book "Das mehrsprachige Klassenzimmer"

 I am terribly proud to write this post today: a year ago I worked for the ZAS (Zentrum für Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft, or Center for Languages Science in Berlin) and drew a series of comic illustrations for the book, "Das mehrsprachige Klassenzimmer". The book is an interesting guide for teachers of German schools whose students have a different another mother tongue than German.

The illustrations are in black and white and make fun of the peculiarities of different languages.
Finding puns that could work in any language and translate them in images was the most challenging part of the assignment.

I am very happy with the result and since the book was finally published a few days ago, I can finally post a few images of it! :-) (Click on the images to see them bigger).
