Landyachtz // New Graphics by Andreas Preis
The board with the owl was in fact originally a personal project. Andreas Preis hand-painted a deck with
some fine liners and acrylics just for fun and put it online. Landyachtz liked it so much, they asked
him to create a printable file out of it. You can find more about it in the Work-In-Progress section.
When I was little, I always told my parents, I wanted to be a »painter without a boss«, so that
somehow worked out I guess. I studied communications design because I only knew I wanted
to do something where I could be visually creative. After an internship and some working in a
big advertising agency, I started to really focus on illustration and I still believe it was a good idea.
