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.”
