Martin Perscheid, born in 1966, is often seen in the Cologne vicinity, where he earns his living as a copywriter and cartoonist. His cartoon series "Perscheids Abgründe" (Perscheid's dark sides) appears in more than 50 daily newspapers and magazines. He is considered one of the absolute greatest in the cartoon scene! There is hardly a theme that Perscheid hasn't already covered in drawings. His fans love him for his deep black and taboo-free cartoons, which are always located at the abyss of the bearable! Perscheid has published many books, been presented with various awards, and the Caricatura in Kassel has even erected a memorial in his honour.
