Illustration

Interested?

If you’re interested in hiring my services as an illustrator, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Just to give some examples, I do portraits, commissions, idea-development, postcards, flyers and I also do illustrations based on live drawings for events where cameras are an unwelcome presence. Here are some examples of my work documenting events:
Feministisches Kuratieren
FORT
Caring for Conflict

I especially have experience in creating illustrations that are sensitive to feminist and queer interests.

I aim to make illustrations that represent all people. I do not work for people or organisations that support extreme-right ideologies.

You can send me a personal message at basbacker (at) posteo (dot) de. I look forward to hearing from you!
