Katzenjammer Katz Wallpaper by Typaer Katzenjammer Katz Wallpaper by Typaer
These four girls together are the incredible and sweet band Katzenjammer. In addition to being great musicians, playing a wide range of instruments (about 30, I think, which they swap according to which song they are playing), they are an incredibly charming and sweet group. If you haven't heard of them before, I shall present them to you!
Starting from the left we have:
Turid Jørgensen and Børge (The instrument, a contra-bass-balalaika)
Solveig Heilo
Anne Marit Bergheim
Marianne Sveen

And also, if you haven't heard any of their music yet, I think it's time you do: [link]

I created this wallpaper from four small drawings on four small cards, given to the Katzenjammer-girls, along with a present. The drawings are cartoonish versions of all the band members, along with cat ears and tail (since they some times are being referred to as "the Katzenjammer-cats", or something along those lines)

Resolution: 1680x1050
Pen and pencils + Photoshop

Thanks! I love them too :) A redrawn and modified version of this drawing (which actually are four seperate cards I gave to the girls in Katzenjammer along with a gift) actually ended up as a t-shirt design they used and sold for a while :)

Are you familiar with The Katzenjammer Kids?
It is a very old US comic strip
based on an even older German comic Max und Moritz.
Apparently the strip is still published
making it the only comic still published
to have its origin in the 19th century.
Here are a couple of links: [link] [link]
There are many other sites.
For a long time,
I listed Hans und Fritz as my favorite cartoon characters
in my dART profile (I have since changed to Bullwinkle the Moose)
I am so happy to see your work again on dA :)

I'm very familiar with the Katzenjammer Kids. In Norway, they're called "Knoll og Tott" (Knoll and Tott). In Norway we have this tradition of having publishing "Christmas-albums", special cartoon books for a lot of different strips/series, especially produced for christmas. Everything from new, modern comics, to old, redistributed and reproduced comics are sold. If I remember right, I got a Katzenjammer Kids album this christmas!
If I remember right, Katzenjammer, the band, took their name from the Katzenjammer Kids.

I hope to start posting a bit more during the upcoming days and weeks! :)
