Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

As Tine Fetz says, she does not have to invent things to put in a story, she simply gets inspired by the things happening around her and on global scale: “So, I either despair or laugh about it. Or draw a picture.”

In 2014, she released a new book titled This Is Not Uganda, for Jaja Verlag, in a limited edition of 500 copies. This 72-page graphic novel, is actually a travelogue, describing Tine’s several trips to Israel. There, she confronted herself with common people and their daily life as she traveled through colonies in occupied territories.
