Karolin Schnoor is an artist from Berlin now living in London. We love her work and you’ve often seen her clean lines and bold illustrations at the studio… on Poketo t-shirts, pullovers and now our latest fall wallet.
We love the contemplative feel of her work and how she’s able to translate that emotion into a beautifully illustrated piece. We wondered if there was something in the London air? Or was it something else?
Our curiosity naturally led us to ask Karolin if she would kindly show us glimpses of her daily life and here’s what we got:
We have a local market nearby so most of my days start with a cup of tea and some fruit
In the mornings the foxes sometimes come into our garden, watching them is quite a peaceful way to start the day.
Sketch in progress, I draw everything in pencil, then ink it and scan it in for colouring
Here are a few illustrations I’m playing around with at the moment and a glimpse of one of my handpainted mugs (I like drawing on stuff)
If I have a new product I’ve just printed and need to list in my shop I usually take it down to the garden to photograph
Often my day involves getting customer or wholesale orders ready to ship, here is my stash of stock.
Post office pile
We are having a bit of a heatwave this week so I took the rest of the afternoon off to bike to the park in Greeenwich nearby where I spotted this shop. Apparently Greenwich is where it’s at for rustic seasonal displays.
I also passed by these curtains which I’ve spotted before, I really love the pattern.
Sketching and reading in the park (getting my own seasonal display on with some leaf drapage)
Currently reading Jane Eyre and Habibi by Craig Thompson just arrived in the post so I can’t wait to get into that, I am a big fan of Blankets, his previous graphic novel.
The view from our window is what convinced me to move to this street 3 years ago, this is the houses across from us at dusk.
