I'm Tini, and I'm a German illustrator and children's book author. My illustrations are a colorful blend of hand-drawn sketches with a digital finish. As an artist I'm self-taught, which means that the learning process is endless, and to be honest, that's half the fun! The media I use are manly crayons and a regular pencil for sketches, but my work is finalized using digital tools like Photoshop and a drawing pad.


Currently I'm living in Southern Germany, but I've spent 18 years of my life in Norway. I'm 158 cm tall, my favourite colour is autumn and my favourite food is ravioli with tomato sauce and lots of parmesan cheese. I still like watching Friends and I nap whenever I feel overwhelmed. If you want to know more, you can find me on Twitter.


If you want to collaborate, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at hallo[at]tinimalitius.com or contact my Reps at Auserlesen Ausgezeichnet.

If you just want to chat, I'm on Instagram and Twitter.


If Instagram isn't really your jam, you can get news about upcoming books, the shop and other things straight to your inbox, by signing up for my somewhat sporadic Tini Illustration Studio Newsletter!

This is a picture of me, that I shot with an old cellphone. It might be updated soon-ish.
