Sophia Martineck’s sophisticated pencil drawings of New York and an A-Z of professions

Sophia Martineck is a Berlin-based illustration whose subtle, blocky and gorgeously detailed illustrations are child-like but also intriguingly evocative and precise. We were particularly taken by her black and white etchings of New York scenes, and her illustrations for an ABC book that showcases 26 types of professions from A to Z. Sophia has worked for an incredible list of clients, from The New Yorker to The Financial Times to Le Monde, and she describes herself as a “sophisticated pencil girl,” which sums up her drawings perfectly.
