Graphic design, illustration, book-design, typography and printing techniques had my special focus. In the third year I was encouraged to also take painting classes by one of my teachers who noticed my talent for portraiture. I owe a lot not only to my teachers but also to the fantastic workshop assistants at the diverse lithography, book-print and offset printing presses, who where such knowledgeable, talented and patient craftsman. The likes are very hard to find nowadays.
