Here is the second part of the interview with talented illustrator Silja Goetz.
What are your inspirations?
I go to art museums a lot, whenever and wherever i can. Luckily I live in Madrid, close to the Prado and the 'Reina Sofía', the Thyssen Bornemisza, etc. I admire Velazquez, the Flemish and Italian painters of the rennaissance, Dürer, Antonello da Messina, Pieter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch...
And I have a weakness for the Preraffaelites, I love those languid, dreamy women. Another favourite is Ramon Casas, a Spanish painter who was also an illustrator. And Jacques Louis -David. And Caspar David Friedrich.
To see those great masters definitely helps to stay humble!
- Thank you once again Silja! I will publish the final part of the interview after Christmas, Season's Greetings everyone!
