Lennart Gäbel
QUESTION: What drew you to illustration/design?

LENNART: A mixture of frustration and coincidence. After studying economy and a few years of work in advertising agencies and marketing, I longed for a more creative job. So, I quit and followed my girlfriend to live in the Netherlands. Half a year later, I sat in the first semester of art school.

QUESTION: Do you have any formal design training? LENNART: Yes, I studied Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam and at the School of Visual Arts in New York. QUESTION: Where do you live? LENNART: In Hamburg, exactly between Schanze and Eimsbüttel. QUESTION: Can you describe your studio for me? LENNART: I am part of the corporate atelier “Carniforum“ which has nine artist who share a large hall in Schanzenviertel. I have 25qm to myself. There is an analog table for ink, watercolor and oil as well as a digital table with my Wacom board and MacBook. For times of relaxation and brainstorming I have a Fatboy and a hammock. QUESTION: Who or What is your biggest inspiration? LENNART: News and articles. The best thing about it- they never end. QUESTION: How do you get the best ideas? LENNART: I put away my cellphone, shut the computer, get my pencil and look on a piece of paper for one or two hours. During the time when I lived in Amsterdam and studied in Rotterdam, the best ideas came during the traintrip. Also often helpful is to put oneself in the position of a role model and wondering how she/he would have approached it. QUESTION: Which technique do you use? LENNART: I start out with pencil sketches and then transfer it to the computer. I have a Wacom Cintiq onto which I draw. That is very useful with tight deadlines as no colors have to dry. QUESTION: Tell us about a favorite project you have recently completed. LENNART: I have completed a cover illustration for the Amnesty International magazine. Which was great because I am very committed to their work and also it was nice to see my work at the newsstand. QUESTION: What would be your dream job/Commission? LENNART: I would really like to work for the New York Times.
