American Illustration Profiles Interview: Brigit Schossow

Birgit Schössow is a German illustrator who had done extensive work creating book covers, book illustrations for children, and “a little bit of animation with music.” Over the past several years she has also created a striking series of magazine covers for The New Yorker on topics ranging from fashion to the weather to noir fiction.

Based in a small town outside of Hamburg, Schössow describes herself as “an illustrator from the boonies.” Her Photoshop-based illustrations feature an eclectic mix of styles, from the sleek graphic sophistication of The New Yorker covers to bright and fun children’s book artwork. She’s a smart and engaging visual storyteller with a keen sense of graphic style.
