Hi! I am Julia Plath, a freelance illustrator, currently located in Hamburg!

I have finished my BA and MA degree at the HAW Hamburg and have been working as a freelance illustrator since 2019. My main fields are editorial and bookillustration, but I have also been doing comics, commercial work, logos and animations. 

My artwork is often described as surreal, I craft visually deep and detailled scenes and images, full of atmosphere and emotion. These illustrations are often sublime, melancholic and intriguing. Working analogue as well as digital allows me to achieve a style that is nostalgic yet modern.

As of 2023 I am the recipient of the stART.up sholarship of the Claussen-Simon Foundation. 

If you want to work with me, just give me a call or write me an e-mail!
