located in a town called Konstanz in Southern Germany, I enjoy and love my work while never being satisfied with my own work. For illustrating beautiful things my weapons of choise are pencils, a bunch of human brains, Photoshop, Illustrator and my vintage scanner.
And the most important thing: my vivid imagination, of course. Inspired by travelling, surfing, cool movies, other artists & the music of Sublime, I try my best to give my drawings a vibrant expression.
How got it started?
My girlfriend and I were traveling through Spain some time ago when a certain screamin' hand on a book cover in the front of a surf shop's window catched my eye. I dropped in pronto, leafed through this vibrant piece of paper – and was spellbound. Hm, I'd say that this incident was the initiation of my career as an illustrator. I've been drawing since my early childhood, studied Architecture and loved art & design for a long time, but Jim Phillips' biography finally encouraged me to make this step forward.
depends on each project, but normally I still start the drawing process the old school analog way. First I make some rough sketches on paper, after that comes the fine-drawing and finally the line art & coloring process in Photoshop or Illustrator with a graphic tablet. Meanwhile I'm going to fasten up my work flow by sketching directly in Photoshop. Well, there's an Undo function :)
