QUESTION: What drew you to illustration/design?

CINDY: Initially I wanted to become a street painter and paint pictures on the streets with chalk, because I thought that one can jump into the images and experience great adventures. I had watched Mary Poppins, where exactly this happens. As a child I strongly believed that to be real and started drawing in order to jump into my drawings one day. Well eventually I had to learn painfully that that won´t work. So I thought I should turn into an illustrator which is pretty close.

QUESTION: Do you have any formal design training?

CINDY: I studied illustration and computer graphics with a distance education program of the IBKK, during which I also worked for animation studios. Later I went to the animation school in Hamburg which sadly does not exist anymore. I am very happy that I was still able to attend the school and had a wonderful year.

QUESTION: Where do you live? CINDY: In Hamburg. QUESTION: Can you describe your studio for me? CINDY: A very nice room, just for me and my dog. It´s in an old building with a vaulted ceiling and a nice view. The walls are painted in a light, almost white green. There is a large wooden table, where I can spread out lots of things. A light table from the animation school and a chesterfield which I can´t use because my dog has occupied it. Some bookcases and a large pin board as well as my Mac with a graphics tablet. Also ther is a really nice old apothecary cabinet. QUESTION: How do you get the best ideas? CINDY: Simply by starting to draw. QUESTION: Who or what is your biggest inspiration? CINDY: I am mostly inspired by my dog and nature. Also by my friends and family and the work with my students. QUESTION: What technique do you use? CINDY: I work mainly digital and like Adobe Photoshop the best. However I always draw the first sketches with pencil on paper. I need the contact to the analog materials to reach a liveliness in my drawings. Afterwards I scan the sketches to color them digitally. QUESTION: Tell us about a favorite project you have recently completed. CINDY: I illustrated for the brochure of the Osnabrueck Cathedral for which I went there personally and got a tour of the church. That was quite exciting, also the fact that I finished this job almost completely analog with fineliner on paper, which was a new challenge for me. QUESTION: What would be your dream job/commission? CINDY: I am always happy, when I can act out my style. QUESTION: Who are your illustration heroes? CINDY: I love the atmosphere of Pascal Campion work and the wit of Bobby Chiu.
