Sandra Beer

Sandra Beer lives and works as a freelance illustrator in her hometown of Frankfurt. She studied illustration and design at the University of Art and Design Offenbach under Georg Barber (ATAK) and Eike König. Until recently she conducted regular kids drawing workshops for the German Design Museum Foundation – a fun project where she also gained a lot, the illustrator feels very inspired by watching little ones draw: “They are unbiased and get straight to the point. I love their naive, direct and honest ways!“

In her self-initiated projects Sandra likes illustrating everything that nature has to offer – and beyond. She brings vibrant worlds to life, filled with animals and plants, imaginatively created in an abstract manner.

Sandra Beer has accumulated and impressive array of handmade brushes and black ink to apply her analogue works to paper. Subsequently she colours her illustrations on the computer. For this she likes to use her digital drawing tablet: „It enables me to make quick corrections and to better find forms.“ – With a strong, speedy line the illustrator creates a distinctive drawing that is only very slightly edited afterwards.  – “I am less timid when working fast, and my own style shows more clearly.“

For Toyota magazine’s road show Sandra Beer was commissioned to draw a map of Frankfurt in ink. The urban illustration of her hometown was created from her own personal view, and she filled the map with her favourite places.

At the core of the Frankfurt-based illustrator’s work lies text illustration – especially books. Fairytales and myths make Sandra Beer’s heart beat faster. So it was a special joy for her to illustrate Hans Christian Andersen’s „The Princess and the Pea“ for Little Gestalten and Oscar Wilde’s „The selfish giant“ for Chrismon.
