Hi! I am Julia, a freelance Illustrator currently located in Hamburg. I finished my Bachelors Degree at the HAW in 2018 and working since then as a freelancer mostly in editorial and bookillustration. My Illustrations rely heavily on the figurative, I love the scenic and atmospheric, often conveying a feeling of nostalgia and melancholy, paired with a dreamlike surreality. I create comics, editorial illustrations, picturebooks and animations, having worked amongst other for Hohe Luft, Rowohlt Verlag, F.A.S. and Rolling Stone. If you are interested in working with me just let me know.
