Work History

  • Freelance Illustrator, Stylist + Designer

    Iris Luckhaus is a freelance Illustrator, Stylist and Designer (MoD, Universität der Künste Berlin) since 2000. And if that's part of projects, she sometimes works as an Author, Lector, Graphic Designer or Programmer as well. Her passion – next to drawing itself and strange researches that help her find out things she'd never found out otherwise – is visual storytelling, always with a friendly approach and often in details you might only discover at third sight. The different fields she works in influence and inspire each other, and she enjoys the challenge of learning new things with every project. In Anthologies as Illustration Now! or Illusive, she is repeatedly featured as one of the "world's best illustrators".
