kombinatrotweiss : illustrators special from beauty to portrait to storyboard & layout, plus new entry IZABE.LA’s fashion portfolio

The illustrator special by Kombinatrotweiss encompasses the whole spectrum of beauty, over portrait to storyboard & layout. The special features a diverse mixture of various styles, such as the works by new arrival IZABE.LA.

Izabela ARSOVSKA, IZABE.LA for short hails from Slovenia, studied fashion and textile design, worked in costume design for commercials and films until she finally ended up in the illustration industry. Her strong affinity for fashion is evident in the filigree drawings, portraits and detail studies.

Russian-born Daria RYCHKOVA studied graphic design in Moscow and has been working as a freelance illustrator since 2007, including the German market (as of 2008). By using fine lines and realistic drawings, she combines a wide range of visual styles. She tells stories using textures, collages, typography and storyboards. GoSee is pleased to show some of her recent, poetically inspired works right here.

Nils KASISKE on the other hand embraces a more technical and precise approach. He has been working as a freelance illustrator and artist for ten years. His art projects and exhibitions tend to deal with phenomena of the communication age. Together with the artist Mr. Nonski, he founded the Spielplatz3000 illustration studio in 2003.

Susan HASSMANN ended up in the illustration industry by way of fashion and textile design. Yet, beautiful women in gorgeous dresses are still the key focus of the fashion design graduate. Her details, coquettishly feminine and exaggerated style can also be found in her newest work, featured here on GoSee.

Two-dimensional portraits and caricatures are the backbone of Matthias SEIFARTH's work. Born in Warendorf, he went on to study design in Münster. He has been working as a freelancer for clients such as Rolling Stone, J'N'C, Hazelwood Records, Belletristik Berlin, Intro Magazine, DIE ZEIT and INDIE Magazine since 2009.

Furthermore, storyboard and portrait specialist Matthias SCHARDT also showcases new works. He has also been teaching drawing and illustration at the AMD Akademie for Fashion & Design in Düsseldorf and the Hochschule für Künste (HfK) in Bremen for many years.

Last but not least, we are presenting the latest artwork by Inke EHMSEN from way up north, who wields her – usually pastel coloured – brush for advertising and editorial clients.
