Germany-based Tim Romanowsky’s illustrations are oddly peculiar, yet somehow still fit together wonderfully in his imaginative, if slightly surreal, fantasy world. Playful faces and creatures with cartoon-like eyes peek out from behind Tim’s abstract backgrounds made up of slices of pattern and shapes.
These amorphous characters add a layer of whimsy and interrupt the muted and disordered land Tim’s created. The illustrator is also part of a design collective called Zyklop based in Halle, Germany, with designers Tobias Jacob and Alexander Schmidt. Their work has a similarly eccentric tinge to it, but it’s great to get a sense of Tim’s personal style.
