On Monday Nov. 8th German editorial illustrator Stephanie Wunderlich graciously came in to room 802 to speak, share her experiences, and show some of her work to all four of the Soph. concepts classes. Stephanie has clients both in the United States and Europe, which made for an interesting in-class discussion on the differences in art direction between the two. Her illustration process involves cutting and collaging paper and though Stephanie has worked all digitally at points in her career, the excitment of traditional hand cut paper is still the most attractive for her.

Stephanie is a regular contributor and collaborator for Spring, a collective graphic magazine/comic published annually in Hamburg which has contributions all by women. A few issues of this inspiring, 200 page. plus, illustrative, graphic experience were passed around during Stephanie’s presentation.

Stephanie also discussed the process behind creating illustrations/props that were used in a play in Germany. Theater there is subsidized by the government and Stephanie explained that this subsidy facilitated experimental theatre.
