In this series of posts, we will highlight the most exquisitely fascinating artworks and inspiring images crafted by one of the most talented artist from the design community.
Mike Friedrich, a 35 years young illustrator and artist from Berlin, Germany, is our featured artist of the day. Born and raised in this awesome city, he made his first steps in the commercial world of illustration and design in the 90’s by selling his dark fantasy illustrations to Berlin-based tattoo studios. Always interested in street art and wall paintings, he merged his fantasy roots with the elements of character design and urban art. The result – a sick, slimy mix with strong dark themes. Cuteness is over!
Mike started his career as a freelancer in 2000. Since then he has done a lot of illustration and design projects with different companies and labels (i.e. Nike, Nintendo, Levi’s®, Hummel, Bring me the Horizon, Celio, Be-Mag and so on). Mike has worked as Art Director for laFraise, A better tomorrow and Cyroline – fashion labels in Germany. Also, Mike has won several awards at international design contests. Since 2009 he works as Art Director for MyVideo and in his studio all the time on new funky art shizzle.
