My father bought himself a microscope about one year ago. I became incredibly fascinated with the tiny creatures, that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. I also fell in love with the delicate drawings by the biologist and zoologist Heinz Streble in his book "das Leben im Wassertropfen" about the microflora and microfauna living in fresh water. At some point, I started discovering more and more funny faces in those little living organisms and turned them into comic like characters.
