For the Nachhaltigkeitsbericht der Österreichen Bundesforste 2017 I was asked to illustrate 6 rare austrian trees in watercolor.

The goal was to show as many details as possible and to give the reader an idea about the trees and how to recognise them in nature. 

1. Briefing & Sketches

I got a briefing for 4 big and detailed illustrations about deer. The briefing was good structured and clear messaged so the sketches could be done very quickly.


  • Illustration 1: deer with village nearby, tracks in the snow
  • Illustration 2: intestinal tract with leaves, gras and peeling
  • Illustration 3: deer in the snow, loves the cold
  • Illustration 4: deer in sunbeam, sucks in every piece of light he can
