My name is Thorsten Erdt and I am a freelance Illustrator. My fields of work are concept art, editorial/cover illustrations as well as game and fantasy illustrations.
I always loved drawing, but I learnt the fundamentals of design at the Berufskolleg Kemnastrasse, Germany; a school with extra courses and focus specifically on design. I later studied design/illustration at the University of applied sciences
Münster, Germany and graduated 2011 with a diploma degree. Since then I work as a freelance artist and with customers like:
Weißbooks Verlag Tachyon Publishing Geo mini magazine Schmitz Cargobull Macils management agency and
