Prof. Felix Jacob, of Visual Arts Institute of Berlin in 1964 confided in me a wish. He was surprised that no African Artist published a book of Animal Drawing. He found that incredible; as Africa is rich in various animals. Through the years I held his wish dear to my heart and tried to fullfil it. The book has been created and is a modest attempt towards that goal and a commemoration to my teacher!
In the Berlin University of the Arts I also received a Recommendation letter for Meister Class and a Scolarship from both of my mentors whom I respected and were great role models to me. For that I will be forever grateful. They made me who I am today as an Artist !! Thank you for giving me these opportunities and believing in me. Rest in peace Prof. Felix Jacob, Rest in peace Prof. Walter Bergmann you will never be forgotton. Your former student Osman Shibir.
