For adventurers
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and the former West Germany, a collection of comics reportage was published in 2005 in which three artists from Israel and three from Germany had recorded their personal impressions of each other’s country in the form of a graphic novel. One of the artists was Jan Feindt, an illustrator from Berlin.

Jens Wiesner in conversation on "Roadmap"

Your illustrations seem very realistic, almost documentary. Have you worked a great deal with the photographs taken on location or is it simply a particularly good memory?"
