Shake Your Tree Studio
Thank you for visiting my website. If you like my pictures or books, don't hesitate to get in touch to talk about collaborations or opportunities of any kind.
About me: With my mates from the Shake Your Tree Network I bring you lots of eye opening design, magazines and exhibitions for you.
For myself illustration is the main thing. I do it everyday. In my work I try to combine the enthusiasm I had for drawing when I was a child with new techniques, cutting the edge skills and new contexts to find the best way of delivering information to the audience.
Last year I moved from Brighton, UK to Berlin, Germany, where I now live and work.

Shake Your Tree Network
"Shake Your Tree" Network links ideas and work of young and interesting artists from various genres, who join together in their battle against boredom. Based around an art magazine, "Shake Your Tree" Network sees itself as an intermedial instrument, designed to support communication and collaboration on the field of contemporary youth culture.
Founded by myself together with Manuel Buerger and Sebastian Haslauer.
