The Art Department Berlin 2024 (sold out)

Hooray! We’re joined in the artist studios by none other than longtime Playgrounds friend Iris Compiet. Iris will be doing some live sketching on Saturday 25 May.

Illustrator Iris Compiet draws inspiration from European folklore, nature, mythology, fairy tales, ghost stories, tombstones, Victorian photography, movies and music. In her work Faeries of the Faultlines, Iris guides readers through a world of fantastical creatures from beyond the veil. She is the illustrator of The Dark Crystal Bestiary and of The Labyrinth Bestiary and winner of the 2021 Chesley Award for Best Interior Art for Dark Crystal. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including Spectrum, Infected by Art, ImagineFX and 3D Total.
