It’s been a few years since we last checked in with Berlin-based illustrator Elisabeth Moch which actually borders on the scandalous. But fortunately the launch of her new website this week gave us the perfect opportunity to remind ourselves why we’ve always rated Elisabeth so highly. First there’s her versatility which makes her so sought-after by clients who are keen for something high-quality but original – nobody likes to feel they are getting something that’s been churned out by a creative content to stick with what they know. Secondly, and crucially, in whatever medium she is working from pencil to watercolour, the work is full of soul, crackling with emotion in an exciting rather than overwrought way.
From the brilliant confetti portraits to the beautiful watercolour covers for Christian Kracht’s Imperium (designed by Christian Schneider) this is an artist who embodies pretty much everything we love about her craft. And we promise not to leave it so long next time Elisabeth!
