Berlin-based illustrator Josephin Ritschel makes books, prints and illustration that varies in subject from alternative forms of education, to Twin Peaks dedications and airport entertainment but maintains the impression of being in the same bustling, forested, Modernist landscape. The characters in Josephin’s drawings are reminiscent of the work of 1960s collective The Hairy Who, and the landscapes packed with fading sunsets, jagged cliffs and stylised suburbia.
We’ve featured Josephin’s work a few times before, from posters depicting moments in classic literature through to a comic about X-Men, Fresh Prince of Bel Air and a series of Risograph prints. As well as her brilliant personal work, Josephin has recently worked with Medium, The New York Times and the band Man Behind Tree.
