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. 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.
  • I have a comic series called Careless Comics – which you can get per mail for free!
  • 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.
  • 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.

Is art your fulltime job?

No. And that’s great actually. I don’t have to change my art for money and don’t have the monetary pressure that can really kill you. Like literally kill you.

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/gear do you use?

My most important art supply is my brain. Joking aside I work in 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. But I also am not a fan of “it’s all about you no matter the tools” – the tools DO matter a lot.

What are your influences?

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

Alright. I warned you.
