Here a drawing from earlier this year for Wirtschaftswoche, that I haven’t shown here before, I think. The article was about economic science. Scientific standards are not met properly in many cases in this field. Very little of the research published is ever peer reviewed and if, results and conclusions can often not be validated.
In one week on Friday 31st, 2019, I will give a talk about my work at The International Illustrator Seminar in Hanaholmen/Hanasaari Espoo. More information and a full schedule of the event can be found here.
My talk will be about how I became an illustrator and I will try to also give some thoughts and insights about working internationally.
I have been thinking about my beginnings in illustration for this talk, and went through a few old things of mine. Here a little preview.
Earlier this week this illustration of mine for Neue Zürcher Zeitung about ‘influencer stocks’ was published.
And I made this illustration for DIE ZEIT for an article about the origins of the recent video that shakes the Austrian political landscape right now.
Illustration for Swiss Das Magazin for an article about “City Cards” – simple identity cards that give immigrants, no matter their legal status, access to basic communal services in the city they are currently living in.
Issuing City Cards might be a less bureaucratic way to make life more bearable for countless undocumented immigrants. Often these people are living in Swiss cities since many years. They are working, raising children, with little or no access to basic public facilities or benefits – all while being in constant danger of being extradited.
Article by Christof Gertsch, art direction by Dorothea Fiedler.
