About the Author
Larissa Honsek is a Berlin-based graphic designer, photographer, and illustrator who loves to explore the intersections of these fields. Her tribe of bright and colorful characters is born out of experiments with a multitude of mixed-media elements: clay sculpting, photography, digital and analogue collaging, painting, drawing, printing, and scanning.
Honsek’s love for analogue pinhole photography also takes her on a second, very different route towards characters no less colorful but decidedly more mysterious. Larissa is currently working as a graphic design freelancer and co-founder of NINO Kreativ, a small company that produces creative kids’ products and materials.
