Hi, my name ist Julia and I am an illustrator.

 

In 2016 I graduated from HS Mainz with a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and in 2018 with a Master's degree in Illustration (passed with destinction).

 

My cartoons and illustrations have been published by The New Yorker, the Nib and Büchergilde Gutenberg (just to name a few).

 

I'm a founding member of the all female illustrator's collective Crush Club.

 

I currently live near Frankfurt with my personal assistant Señor Puck who also happens to be a senior rescue dog.

 

If are interested in working with me,

just drop me a line.
