    Paul Paetzel: Contribution to NoBrow 6

ABBA tributes and car accidents, be prepared to add Paul Paetzel to your list of favourite illustrators

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Can we all just stop, stop for a minute and have a good, proper look at how talented this man is? I scarcely know where to begin. There was one point (whilst reading the comic strip about the crispy pommes frites) when I actually had to turn away because it was too good. Yep, you heard it, Paul Paetzel’s work is basically the illustration equivalent of the sun. One third of the Berlin-based illustration wunder-trio Biografiktion , Paul spends his days collaborating with the equally talented Ana Albero and Till Hafenbrak on publications that they sell in their dangerously alluring online shop. Stop reading this and give yourself at least an hour on Paul’s blog, paying particular attention to the delicious sneak previews of his and Till’s upcoming book “Shokaki.” Very exciting.
