Christoph Niemann

21 Sep

Just stumbled upon Christoph Niemann this morning. I love his work for two reasons: 1) the old comic styling he uses; and 2) the clever ways he uses illustration to make  humorous and biting comments on contemporary social issues. He favours simplicity of illustration and concept over…well, visual complexity and lack of substance. Seems his work has graced the cover of The New Yorker countless times. Check out his website here

Also, if you have a little time, I’d highly recommend his very funny but very inspiring talk here. Seems to be a pattern with him, intelligent, stimulating content seasoned with humour.
