“Born in Westphalia, Germany, in one particularly cold winter, I was raised on french comics and ancient computer games in the outskirts of Bremen.” STOP right there Till Thomas, that’s just enough information to cement the fact that your work is going to be terrific. What more do we need from the man whose confident self-publishing skills are enough to make even the most productive of illustrators feel a little edgy?
I could probably talk in substantial detail about every single one of Till’s projects, but if I could pick just one as a must-see it would be his contributions to Roger Omar’s collection of illustrations of children’s dreams – the full set you can find here – complete with very sweet copy from the children themselves.
Pick up some of Till’s minicomics “Zirp” at Treasure-Fleet to secure his talent stays firmly fixed on your bookshelf forever.
