While presenting one hundred ways to draw a bird, the author unveils the facets of life as an illustrator, in the hope that doing so will help to make everyday life as an illustrator a little simpler.
Felix Scheinberger was born on 14 October 1969 in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). The entrance exam for the FH fu¿r Gestaltung, Hamburg (University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, Germany) would be his ticket to an education. There he studied illustration, which then seamlessly resulted in self-employment. In the past ten years, he has illustrated more than fifty books, worked for prestigious newspapers and collected various prizes and awards. He has also taught in Mainz, Hamburg, Mu¿nster (Germany) and Jerusalem (Israel). His previous publications have influenced design agencies to rediscover hand-rendered drawing as well as pencil and watercolours. Felix Scheinberger now lives in Berlin and is a professor of illustration at the FH Münster (University of Applied Arts, Münster, Germany).
