Hello, Im Konrad Eyferth
I grew up in West-Berlin (and now live there again). After high school, I did an apprenticeship and became a joiner/cabinet maker. My first job was so awful that I fled on a topsail schooner and crossed the Atlantic. As a “ship’s carpenter“, I continued on tall ships for some years and worked as a joiner in Berlin. Later, I studied illustration at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Armgartstrasse). Drawing comics was my favorite during my first years as an illustrator. In Hamburg, we had great fun with multiple fantastic comic exhibitions. However, earning enough money with comics to feed a family is impractical. Instead, I went for storyboards, magazine Illustrations, school book illustrations, and other crazy projects. For 15 years, I drew a monthly double-page quiz illustration for GEOlino – a well-known internachildren’s magazine.
Mostly, I create my drawings using watercolors, acrylic, or gouache on paper and canvas and then process them digitally. If you need an illustration, give me a call! If you are unsatisfied with my work, I won´t charge for it.
