Joachim Sperl
Hamburg, Germany


Sperl creates a quirky, complex and colourful world in his illustrations, with a richness of detail, ambiguity and irony in his storytelling. Many a time, he uses the “story in the story” tool for his storytelling as well. He is playful with perspective, he often uses more than one, or he ignores it on purpose.


Joachim Sperl was born in a small town and grew up in a village somewhere in the Odenwald, Germany.

He studied (after an aborted attempt at Architectural studies) Graphic Design in Hamburg and at the Buckinghamshire New University (located in a bizarre town near London, England) under Paul Plowman. Joachim works as a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator in Hamburg (currently) and he wants to drink more tea instead of coffee in the future.
