from anna Frohmann:

Illustration is a delicious form of eye candy, but it is capable of so much more.

The visual language has no limits. Its tools like shape, lines, colour, hue, saturation, size and the fact that it is not bound to reality make it a pretty broad field with seemingly endless possibilities. 

I like to believe that illustrators create commercial art – sounds like a contradictory combination but I think it is actually a good way to illustrate this profession. 

But don't get me wrong, I am not offering illustration… 

I am offering you a solution tailored to your specific needs. – Emotion, humor, value, information, identity, opinion, culture or simply eye candy expressed in analog and digital lines.

I am an illustrator with a background in advertising/graphic design and animation. I love to work across a wide spectrum of styles, and various fields of interest and disciplines. Contact me with your unique project/idea/question as I am always looking for new opportunities to create outstanding art tailored to your individual needs. 

 

I am an artist with a very flexible style. I like to explore, find new mediums, styles, techniques and work across disciplines – from Visual Development/Concept Art to Character Design, Layout and Animation and Supervision/Art Direction. I love my job and clients that want to embrace that versatility and like to find the best suitable style for a project. 

In my spare time I enjoy to read about about various subjects, I'm highly interested in psychology and sociology, and love to spend time in nature – studying and getting immersed in it.

My background in graphic design and Art Direction gives my approach a different level of engagement. I enjoy to tackle a topic from various angles, doing thorough research and take on new challenges.

If you have a project but are yet unsure if I am the right person to help you with it, please just drop me a line or call me directly with your inquiry. I am happy to talk things through with you. I know my skillset well and will reject a job if I do not believe I can do it to the best result possible. 

So don't be shy and get in touch!
