Graphic artist and illustrator Henning Wagenbreth shares his story about growing up behind the German Wall in East-Berlin. Being a student in this period might be where his love for the artistic dark side comes from. When the wall fell he had the chance to study in Paris for a year, where he was amazed that there was more to comics than just Asterix and Obelix! Nowadays his handwriting is starting a life on its own as the typeface FF Prater, we ask him how he feels about that. He tells us about his observative mind that made him save all the African scam-emails he received over the years and how he refers to them as modern fairytales. Recorded at Integrated 2011, Antwerp, Belgium.
