Illustration: German image-maker Tina Berning creates stunning editorial illustration

I don’t normally go in for illustration thats composed from inky washes. It always reminds me of fashion illustration so I can’t shake the feeling that it’s somehow inherently shallow. But German illustrator Tina Berning turns my prejudice on its head with her stunning ink and watercolour portraits. Her use of line is so practiced and her attention to detail so honed that it’s impossible not to be engrossed by her vast portfolio of editorial illustration. I’ve also had the pleasure of seeing Tina speak about her work and can vouch for the rigour of her process. Seriously impressive stuff.
