Another Flickr prodigy rears its multicoloured head in the form of Nadine Redlich, a German illustrator whose work is a dangerous cocktail of hilarious and magical puerility. I did some quick digging around for some more information on Nadine and came across a short bio of her on German illustration blog Rotopol Press: “Redlich was born around 1879. In her early life she began her studies at the Fachhochschule Düsseldorf in the field of communication design. She was able to end these studies with a diploma after more than 100 years.”
Thank goodness someone has written this playful little fictional tale about Nadine, because whenever you try to sum up her work in a professional grown-up way you find yourself falling short. How could you possibly comment on work like hers with anything other than a tongue in your cheek, a twinkle in your eye and a bucket of water balancing on the nearest door? This is some of the coolest illustration ever, let’s hope she’s got lots more where it came from.
