Thomas Stefflbauer / CREATIVE CAPSULE
Describe your creative lab in a few words?
It’s a small table in a corner of our big apartment. But I also love to go into coffee houses in the neighborhood and work there.
In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique?
I either start by doodling with rough brushes in Photoshop or a loose arrangement of reference material. Then I work in many layers in order to be able to change things later on. For vector art I prefer Flash over illustrator because of its intuitive drawing process. But for more conceptual art such as logos or type-art I use only illustrator.
What is the project of which you are most proud of?
A graphic novel which hasn’t been published yet. It’s the story of my wife’s experiences from growing up in Brooklyn to traveling the middle East.
What are your favourite colors to create?
Deep, dark reds and blues with highlights sprinkled in.
Why did you become an artist?
Because I didn’t want to stop drawing ever.
In four words, how would you describe your style of illustration?
My style is that I never settled on a style. But I love to draw in whimsical flowing style with elongated, dynamic lines. I did many editorial illustrations that way in my early years.
What is the project of your dreams?
I’m doing it. It’s called "Dreamworlds". Digital paintings based on “art trouvé”-style photos. I literally aim to re-create the images I see in my dreams.
What does a typical day in the life of Thomas looks like?
I get up with my kids, prepare breakfast and work on a personal project. I’m writing stories, work on my "Dreamworlds" project or I finish my other projects. The afternoons are either for office tasks, helping my son with his homework or going to the grocery. Evenings are booked for family when I don’t have a new job coming in.
What inspires you?
Literally everything around me. I try to spend time away from the computer when I don’t work in order to be around people and nature. To me the city is nature as well.
What is your favourite blog or website?
I have to confess that it’s pinterest and speed drawing tutorials on Youtube.
