Valentin Schönbeck

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

My name is Valentin Schönbec, I'm an illustrator and a comic artist. Creating comics was my start, and that is the angle I use in illustrating as well. Not so much about the style in which images are made as it is about how to tell stories with images.

What part of your creative work do you like the most?

Sketching: To lure the image out of my thoughts and trap it on paper is the most giving thing, every time.

What are you working with right now?

I'm illustratin a schoolbook series in French for publisher Natur & Kultur.
