Uli Stein Cartoons - Vorsicht Steinschlag farbig Teil 2
Uli Stein was born in Hannover as a son of a housewife and a public servant. He graduated the Goetheschule in Hannover. After a two-year conscription in the Bundeswehr, he moved to West Berlin where he studied German, Geography and Biology at the Free University of Berlin. Shortly before graduating, he quit his studies to work as a journalist, amongst others six years for the Saarländischer Rundfunk. At the end of the 70s, he focused on cartoons full-time. He resides at Wedemark near Hannover.
Stein's cartoons mainly focus on day-to-day-situations, portrayed by mice, cats, dogs, penguins and pigs. He also creates cartoons for other events and subjects, such as politics or soccer. Although he mainly sells books and post cards with his cartoons, there is a variety of other products based on them, such as games and articles of daily use.
By 2008, Stein had sold more than 90 million post cards and 9 million books in Germany alone and his works have been translated into a number of languages. Since 1998, he draws a weekly cartoon for TV Hören und Sehen, a German TV guide. With the advent of widespread internet usage, Stein began using the web as a medium for his cartoons, but is skeptical towards its use as a medium for books.
