Hi, my name is Julia and I am
an illustrator and cartoonist.

 

I graduated from HS Mainz with a Bachelor's degree
in graphic design and a Master's degree in illustration which I passed with destinction.

 

My cartoons and illustrations have been published
by The New Yorker, the Nib, Avant Verlag, Narrative Magazine, The Lily and Büchergilde Gutenberg among others.

 

I'm a founding member of the all female illustrator's collective Crush Club, teach illustration as a guest lecturer at HS Mainz and FKA Frankfurt and regularly give workshops on how to draw comics.

 

I currently commute between Mainz and Berlin with my personal assistant Señor Puck who also happens to be my dog.
