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.

My comic debut "Wie gut, dass wir darüber geredet haben" was published in 2019 by Avant Verlag.

 

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 can be booked for workshops.

 

I am currently living and working in Mainz and Berlin.
