?Condenadme, no importa. La historia me absolverá?. Estas fueron las conocidas palabras de Fidel Castro pronunciadas en el juicio que le condenaría a quince años de cárcel por liderar un levantamiento armado contra Batista . Pero eso solo sería el comienzo de una larga revolución que dura hasta nuestros días. Ahora, gracias a la magnífica obra de Reinhard Kleist , que nos relata toda una vida de idealismo y lucha, podrás conocer los actos de este líder revolucionario y decidir por ti mismo si merece la condena o la absolución.
I was born in 1970 near Cologne. I studied at the school for Graphic and Design in Münster, where I graduated with the silk screen album "Abenteuer eines Weichenstellers" by the author H.C.Artmann. While I was studying, I worked on the two books "Lovecraft" and "Dorian". Now I live in Prenzlauer Berg/Berlin and work in the same studio as the comic artists Fil, Naomi Fearn and Mawil on Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg. In 1998 I travelled to New York for four months, where I worked on the book "Amerika". I work as an illustrator for books, Cds, advertisement and animation. In 2006 the book "Cash - I see a darkness" came out and has since then been translated into french, english, spanish, dutch, greek, italian and portugues and soon chinese. I spend one month in Cuba in 2008 and worked on sketches for a travel book, which was published in the same year and has yet been translated into greek and korean. I also used this trip to do some research for a book about Fidel Castro, which appeared in Germany in 2010 and will be translated soon into english, spanish, french, portugues and chinese. Right now I work on a newspaper strip for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about a jewish boxer.
