Where’s the artist ? is a masterpiece of research and illustration, a museum that fits into book shelves of any kind. Anna Morlinghaus, Krumulus Buchhandlung 

Full of “Look & Find activities”, Where’s the artist? offers a playful introduction to the arts. Eselsohr, Kinder- und Jugendbulletin

Where’s the Artist? From Cave Paintings to Modern Art:
This one-of-a-kind look-and-find book explores art through the times, highlighting the most prominent styles and artists of each era, from early cave painters to Egyptian hieroglyph carvers to members of a Bauhaus art school. The main event is the art itself, in which von Sperber cobbles together characters and details from famous works from such artists as Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Warhol, and more.  Meghan Oppelt – Booklist Chicago

Theo, the cat really wants to have some peace and quiet, read a good book or doze off. Lotti however, she’s wide awake. She’s curious and wants to find out about everything right away right now. – In the end , it’s her who’s fast asleep while Theo’s got his eyes wide open. Sounds familiar? Kathrin Köller, Eselsohr

Teaching professional. Broad range of subjects including illustration, book & magazine illustration, cover art, logo & character design, colour design, composition and associative illustration.

Book illustration
Students are asked to develop their own story, a storyboard and three doublespreads of the book. Students thus learn developing their own individual style, creating suspense and an understanding of the interaction between text and illustration.


Associative illustration
Using this method students play and experiment to become open-minded and develop their own style.
