Hi I am Falk. Nice to meet you.

I do Art, Comics, Illustration, Music and whatever-I-want-to-do based in Berlin. I love to experiment, try out new techniques and media. It would be hard to stick to only one thing for me. I guess that’s called multi-passionate.

So, feel free to explore this website, write me a mail (or DM) anytime, I love to talk about anything creativity- or art-related!

  • I’m mostly active on Instagram if you want to keep up with my work.
  • You find my solo music on Spotify and co.
  • I also have an imaginary rock band called Echo Dolphins, find the debut album on Spotify.
  • If you want to buy one of my drawings as a print send me an email!
  • Check out the FAQ down below for more info

Frequently asked questions

How old are you?

What I feel like: Between 5 and 10 years old. Reality: I was born in 1991.

But I can live with getting older. It’s not a problem for me. I love old people as seen in some of my drawings 😁

Is art your fulltime job?

No, only partially! But I’m working on it. Right now I am also working part time as a designer.

You can help me achieve this goal by buying an original or a print from me 🙂

How can you have such a high output of art and music?

Well, I can tell you that this wasn’t always the case. I was always producing a lot of stuff but I had the phases where I was creatively exhausted. Since some years though I have changed a lot about how I approach creativity and put systems into place that ensure that I can be creative all the time. Without any creative blocks.

I want to share my knowledge with all of you and get you to that creative flowstate too!! But I first have to work out how to do this in the best way. Maybe write a book? Let’s see…

In the meanwhile you can join my mailing list in which I share some of my insights  🙂

How is your name pronounced?

First of all: My first name is Falk! NOT Louis 😁

Falk is hard to say for an english native speaker, the closest word to it is… uhm, I guess… Fuck? 😅 For the perfect pronunciation check out THIS VIDEO

Louis is pronounced without the s, so it’s like the french name.

What art supplies do you use?

I work all kinds of media with all kinds of material. I am a big believer in doing whatever suits you. Just try out a bunch of stuff and see what works fine for you. It definitely doesn’t have to be expensive. I often use coloured pencils for children which cost almost nothing. My acrylics and gouache are mostly cheap starter sets. Make art, instead of thinking too much about art supplies – that’s only a distraction. And an expensive one at that.

But I know that some of you still want to know. So here’s a list without brand names:

  • For me the most important things are toilet paper and soy yogurt cartonage (not even kidding)
  • Gouache
  • Acrylics
  • Newspaper Cutouts for collage
  • Coloured Pencils
  • Manga G-Pen Nib + Ink in blue or black, sometimes red
  • Art Hack: I often just use a coloured pencil and dip it into the ink
  • Watercolour
  • White marker pen for highlights
  • normal pens
  • My brain (Brand: Falk)

What are your influences?

Sooooooo many influences!!! Do you really wanna hear about them?
