We're constantly looking for interesting artists on Instagram. We will be introducing them every tuesday in a series called Introtuesday. Please meet Germany based illustrator Katharina Bourjau.
What are you working on at the moment? I am mainly working for magazines and newspapers at the moment, which I really enjoy. I am lucky to be working for many different magazines which makes it exciting for me. When working for a children’s magazine you have to find and use a different "language" than when working for a business magazine.
What is your work process like? Usually I start with sketching very roughly and writing down some words or sentences which come to my head, so pretty much brainstorming. But I am quickly going digital using Adobe Illustrator because it is the best way for me to try out forms, shapes and colours.
Favourite work snack? Fresh orange juice and chocolate of course.
Any personal projects on theside that you're excited about? I started doing very small sculptures on the side which are called he_freundchen on Instagram, if you want to check them out. I discovered that working on them is a little bit like meditation and gets your head free.
