Carnival is a very special season in the Rhineland and a part of its culture. The carnival season starts in November and ends on ash Wednesday. The week before it ends is the week with street carnival, parades in the villages and cities. In 1999 nurses of the St.Josef Hospital founded a carnival group, called „Jecke Juppes“ („mad Josef“). The group participated in the carnival parades till 2009. For this group I made large cartoons and sculptures which were mounted on cars and trucks running with the parade. Each carnival season has its own medal (with a cartoon on it), costumes, buttons and logos…All made by me for the carnival group. Here a few pictures of the cartoons.
