Andreas illustrates on paper as well as the computer. His portfolio also includes doors, buses and lots of long boards. Only the skin is not his field, so please don´t ask him to create a tattoo.
QUESTION: What drew you to illustration/design?
ANDREAS: When I was little, I always told my parents, I wanted to be a »painter without a boss«, so that somehow worked out I guess.
QUESTION: Do you have any formal design training?
ANDREAS: I studied communications design because I only knew I wanted to do something where I could be visually creative. After an internship and working in a big advertising agency, I started to really focus on illustration and I still believe it was a good idea.
QUESTION: Where do you live?
ANDREAS: In Berlin.
QUESTION: Can you describe your studio for me?
ANDREAS: Since I live in Berlin, I have quite a little work room. But it´s cosy, typically Berlin with high ceilings and wooden floor and a balcony. At most times it´s rather tidy, apart from lots of spread pencils.
QUESTION: What is your biggest inspiration?
ANDREAS: That could be anything. Especially music though and people that surround me.
QUESTION: How do you get the best ideas?
ANDREAS: Anywhere, sometimes at night, or when I go out with friends.
QUESTION: What technique do you use?
ANDREAS: Mostly I start drawing by hand with a pencil, fineliner or a marker. I also work quite often in arylic or with cans. Then I scan it and combine the elements in photoshop - quite often also with structures that I shot. Once in a while I also include something with illustrator.
