Interview Kat Menschik, Illustrator, Berlin/Brandenburg
Where are you living?
I live in Berlin and on the countryside in Brandenburg.
How old you are? (if you don’t mind answering)
Unfortunately, I will soon turn 50 – incredible.
What inspires you?
Inspiring me: my next surrounding environment, movements, attitudes, light, shadow, compositions, city, country, flora, fauna, sea, mountains, travel, reading, pinterest, facebook, as you can see but also the Jugendstil, The Modern, the 50s, 60s. In short: to look, to be curious, then I find everything I need!
Tell me about what you do?
What I do? Drink lots of coffee, some sport, not like other, but regular. Regularly meet friends, take short trips, work a lot in the garden, with the aim of creating a lush, colorful flower garden (and to maintain and maintain it), as a hobby potter (which in the end looks better than it sounds, I thing), Of course, draw a whole lot, draw, draw.
What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?
A typical day: do not get up too late (but not too early) as I said: Coffee drink, black, without milk and sugar. Usually a little tidying up, because it must look quite right around me when I work. Then work without artist attitudes at the desk. mostly until the late afternoon. Then I make a real evening of work. Time for family and friends or hobby and garden, that is important to me.
What are some of your favourite sources for information?
Source: mostly Google, little Wikipedia, and what I like analogously
How does social media influence your life?
Social media: I’m trying to pull myself out a little, especially out of fb, It robs me of too much time and meaning. But continue to use it as a professional platform. Otherwise I hardly use social media, rather analog!
