Mart Klein studied Communication Design under the reign of Prof. Rissler in Mainz. The vegan works for aeons as an illustrator for the very best clients there are. His hobbies he forgot along the way. He has been roaming for ages as an undead bound to the earth and can't die before having worked for Marvel. After a few cups of coffee he starts to resemble a human being both physically and psychologically.
Mart Klein seems to be self-absorbed because he talks about himself in third person and wrote this text by himself.
