Freistil Black

I am honored to have the first chapter of my book included in Freistil, the prestigious bi-annual of European commercial illustration published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz, 2009. "Freistil reveals the breath and the evolution of the culture of illustration. Here, you will discover talents, aspects and technical finesses, not to mention the trend of a culture that develops rapidly and is distinguished by the daring to take clear, individual standpoints."
