Clever Sketches by Christoph Niemann Turn Everyday Scenes into Humorous Moments

March 9, 2018

Illustrator Christoph Niemann (previously) plays with scale and context to create small scenes using ink and everyday materials. In his object-focused works, a few deft brushstrokes turn a pair of socks into the head and torso of a dinosaur, and a pressed paintbrush flares into a dancer’s swinging skirt. Other sketches are based on photographs, usually of the streets of New York City where the artist lives. For the past few years, he has shared these illustrations each Sunday via Instagram. Niemann also sells prints of his series of Sunday Sketches, along with original drawings, in his online store. He has also published a book, Sunday Sketching.

Intro sequence to “Abstract”. I drew this on the car window while driving with the film crew from the New Yorker offices to the Flatiron Building and then just hit “record”.
