Jürgen, an illustrator with a unique weathered-on-wood digital style, has been illustrating for editorial projects for 16 years. Based in the Seattle, Washington area, he began his career as an art director for magazines in Colorado. The need for quality illustration for various articles gave opportunity for him to try his hand at editorial illustration, which was met with moderate success. Trial and error led to a more refined technique, eventually getting two illustrations featured in the 2001 Print's Regional Design Annual. Jürgen's technique has been developed over years of experimenting with vector drawing and using photos of various surfaces to apply as channels to rough-up the work. His illustration has been featured in diverse publications around North America, including the New York Times.
