“Iris Luckhaus est une illustratrice freelance vivant à Wuppertal, en Allemagne. Visitez son site et son blog pour plus d’illustrations. Elle présente, par ailleurs, ses illustrations dans un portfolio à illustration.de (illustrateurs allemands). She works as a freelance illustrator, stylist and designer: different fields which all include visual storytelling and different fields which inspire each other. Apart from that, her inspiration comes from real life and real people – their stories, their attitude, or just tiny details – as well as versatile characters she finds in books, movies or songs. In illustration she appreciates and enjoys the challenge of drawing in different styles related to different projects, as this enables her to continually grow, learn and feed her curiosity.
She likes to work on special themes with background and research: first of all, you have to understand the subject and/or the text with your heart. After that, you can distill the essence of it – and then visualize it, make it alive and make it sparkle. Personally, she has a passion for details that can tell whole stories beyond what you see at first sight and that add layers and life to a picture: This is what makes her smile when drawing and this is what makes her work and the whole process so precious to her.” – Merci bien!
