Jörn Kaspuhl discovered his interest in culture and art as a young boy growing up in Stade, Niedersachsen in the early 80s. Inspired by the nature surrounding him while wandering apple and pear groves along the German countryside, he began to draw his own comic-style stories.
In 2002, Jörn moved to Hamburg to study illustration at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Department of Design. By the time he graduated in 2008, he had already gained extensive experience as a freelance illustrator, working for several local and international magazine and book publications, as well as music and fashion labels. Since beginning commission work in summer 2006, his client list has grown to include The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Monocle, GQ, The Independent, Wired, Rolling Stone, Neon, Die Zeit, Süddeutsche Magazin and Der Spiegel.
Jörn ususally works with pencil, ink and watercolor applied to paper, using the computer as a tool to combine. He currently lives in Berlin, where he is further exploring and expanding his creative path.
