More About This Book

The delight with which Frank Höhne draws radiates from each of his illustrations and his strange humor is contagious. His style is idiosyncratic and sometimes childishly naïve. Höhne admits that “I simply do what I want to do,” but he does this so well that he has established himself as one of Germany’s leading illustrators in only a short period of time. His clients include international brands such as BMW Mini, Nike, and Aveda, as well as a broad range of German newspapers and magazines.

Frank Höhne is inspired by the things that make him human. As he puts it, “a colonoscopy gives me eight times more input than a visit to a museum for applied something or other.”
