After seven years in Münster, it was on to America where he studied communication arts at the Virginia Commonwealth University.
“I carry a sketchbook everywhere I go,” Tin says, “and consider myself a sketchbook artist first and an illustrator second. Some of my biggest influences are Heinrich Kley, Jacques Tardi and Barry Windsor-Smith.”
He still resides in Richmond, Virginia, where he creates commercial illustrations for national and international clients.
The Wrath of Klahn “I was hired by Sterling Publishing to create a mock-up cover for the Wrath of Klahn crossword puzzle series. The project was nixed halfway through, but I still finished the colouring for myself.”
Japanese Rooftops “I like drawing architecture and in 2008 I spent two weeks exploring Japan and sketching various landmarks. This is a fleshed-out sketch that I refined in Photoshop.”
Model Drawing “If I’m not working on assignments for clients, I’m sketching everything around me. This is a quick, early morning digital warm-up figure study. I try to squeeze in a sketch each day before tackling bigger projects.”
