Hey there and thanks for stopping by!
My name is Bastian Groscurth and this is my Society6 portfolio. I’m an illustrator, graphic designer and art director currently working out of Cologne, Germany.
I’ve been drawing stuff, doodling little logos and playing around with lettering pretty much all my life. I love observing and absorbing the world around me and put tiny bits of it on paper or into the computer. Funny animals, cool characters, classic cars and suburban architecture are the motives that inspire me the most.
Although my finished art is mostly digital, it always starts out with my all-time favorite tool, the pencil, my personal peacemaker. Usually the results of my drawing and sketching end up as vector illustrations, since vector's where my heart is! I love desaturated colors with minimal bright accents. Also, I'm always in search for the perfect fusion between graphic lines and organic curves.
After graduating from University of Applied Siences Wiesbaden, where I studied design and illustration, I spent about four years in a couple of renowned German advertising agencies, such as Springer & Jacoby, Ogilvy & Mather and Young & Rubicam, working as an art director. Eventually, in the summer of 2007, I started out as a freelance illustrator and designer, which is what I’ve been doing ever since.
I hope you enjoy my work. Come back for news.
