Hello, I am Tobias Zotter, graphic designer and Illus­trator living and working in Vienna, Austria.

Since 2013 I am passion­ately working for GREAT. Besides various printed and digital publica­tions over the last years I lecture about the haunted ghost of crea­tivity at the Kunst­universität Linz.

Please find some snapshots of my work on Behance, Instagram or just scroll this site. 🡣

It was suprisingly hard to draw a human without its head as a main subject of an artwork. Just losing the natural focus with its expression. Like facing people who lost their thoughts and their voice. Anyway, i sat a raven into the picture. No expression either but even a companion to the unlucky fellow. #headless #raven #head #lost #light #work #handmade #drawing #inspiration #illustration #illustrationoftheday #art #design #artwork #procreate

A while back I was invited to participate the #redesignthemarket design experiment at #designmonatgraz. It was fun, a lot of work though, creating the market stall to support lupita kager selling her jams, juices and schnapses. All natural, all "nature in tiny doses". @pixelcrash #branding #rebranding #market #stall #stand #illustration #design #redeisgn #logo #logodesign #artdirection #modelbuilding #modeling #tiny #landscape #fruits #nature #natural #workhard #workhardplayhard

Today I found this piece in one of my sketchbooks. I can't remember for which job I have drawn it—actually I can't even remember it’s idea. Something about secrets and superheroes. Something about covering and hiding. Whatever, I like it so I want to share it with you. #sketchbook #drawing #sketch #illustration #handdrawn #blackandwhite #secret #superhero #covering #hiding #question #graphic #design #illustrationoftheday #noidea #confused #edding #black #rough #lineart
