Mosaik, by Edith Hegenbarth

Edith Hegenbarth, born Edith Szafranski, worked as a costume designer before she was hired by Hannes Hegen to work on the production of the monthly Mosaik magazine, the most popular comics magazine of the DDR. She was one of the main collaborators, and one of the few whose name was mentioned in the credits.

She eventually married Hegen, and cooperated on the 'Digedags' until 1975. She developed over 3000 model-sheets for the characters and lived in retirement with her husband until her death in 2008.
