Most of you have already seen the comics and characters of Oskar Pannier from Berlin; his best-known creations are the characters Shakes and Fidget. The stories about the Human Warrior shakes and the gnome magician Fidget were originally published as a World of Warcraft parody. In 2009 the browser game “Shakes & Fidget – The Game” from the web comic series.


The 32-year-old combined his favorite hobbies – drawing and computer games – and works as an illustrator and comic artist. Currently he is working as a full-time game designer for his Berlin Indie game studio LaserPotato, which he founded in 2014 with a friend. Their first game “Grampa vs. Zombies”, a one-touch arcade shooter is coming soon for iOS and Android.



Recently Pannier is working less because he became a father, but he will continue to work as Gronkh´s official illustrator. There he designs motives and figures for the merchandise department of the Youtuber.
