02ace428943703.55dacee87ce91Welcome back! After a brief hiatus, we’re back with image of the day; we missed the blog very much indeed. As we said on yesterday’s update, things have been exceptionally hectic at Thortful HQ, and the entire team is going hard in the final few weeks before the launch of the platform. Luckily for us, though, we’ve still managed to be in touch with a variety of amazing creatives around the world.

Today’s image of the day (above) is by Bavarian-born, Berlin-based illustrator and art director Andreas Preis. Andreas has worked with Adidas, DC Comics, Nike, ESPN Magazine and Calvin Klein (among other huge names) to create wonderful, illustrative work, which is always distinct, and his mural on the remnants of the Berlin Wall for YAAM in Central Berlin was no different. YAAM’s been a hotspot and hub for creativity in entertainment in Berlin for quite some time, and Andreas’ mural is not the only one featured on the wall. In terms of style, Andreas has carved out a niche for himself creating beautiful portraiture from dynamic, decisive hatching and straight lines. His animal portraits in particular, like the one above, have been picked up by Landyachtz longboards for a very distinguished, stylish kind of ride. Now when you see Andreas’ work, you’ll know who created it! See behind the scenes of the mural being created at Andreas’ Behance page, or connect with him on instagram.
