NORM – The Interdimensional Art Book

€2,311

During a friendly game of table-tennis, Norm is smashed with a ping-pong ball so violently that he is transported through four different dimensions...

His disorienting trip is completely observational and it shapes him into something entirely new! 

NORM was created in an artistic collaboration. It represents a mix of two very different hand styles.

Each page is entirely hand-drawn with ink and watercolour painted.

NORM`s trip is documented with single page comics. Nevertheless, every story is somehow connected.

As an art book, NORM supersedes the conventional comic. The four worlds are collected in leporellos – foldable leaflets. They can be read as a book, or extended and hung as posters. It's up to you!


Our publisher is Lucia Verlag.Thanks to them we will be able to distribute the first printing of our comic to bookstores around the world!

We would love to share NORM with as many of you as we can and to get it finally in your hands!

Creating these stories made fulfilled us in a way that no other work has, which is why we want to put all of our effort into continuing doing what we do.

Life is brief and we would like to spend our time making beautiful art!


We are raising funds to see NORM to print. 

To print our 1st edition of 100 books we need:

  • 1000€ for printing
  • 1000€ for binding

Anything extra would go to the continued development of publishing and printing more books.

Our plan is to print by May 2019. 

The comic NORM started to take shape in Ljubljana, Slovenia. 

We had been hitchhiking and our ride dropped us off on the outskirts of the city. During our trek back we began a conversation of creation. We felt like a comic would be the best medium to record the world around us.

When we finally arrived back in Germany, we started to sketch our pages. Our two styles began to melt into one new form of expression, and then all of a sudden we had a book in our hands!

We want to share our collected thoughts and ideas in an entertaining way.

To us, art is a subversive action which dissolves NORMalcy. 


As an international artist duo from opposite sides of the planet we are focused on creating together. 

We are in our early twenties and currently located in Europe – one in full colour, the other lost in patterns.

Risks and challenges

The comic is almost finished, we are finalising cover design.

Precautions have been taken to ensure that the printing and shipping go smoothly, but it is possible that printing or shipping issues could arise and the comic NORM could be delayed. In the unlikely case, backers will be notified and given updates on the reasons for the delay.
