Here is the final part of the interview with one of my favourite illustrators, Silja Goetz.

What materials do you use in your work?

I have a variety of styles. Sometimes I start with a pencil drawing, sometimes with ink and brush, sometimes with a collage. and it always ends in Photoshop.
What is your favourite personal project to date?
Maybe this here. (below)

What other illustrators and artists' work do you admire?

My preferences are constantly changing, right now come this to mind: Maurice Sendak, René Gruau, Jenny Bowers, Sara Fanelli, and Klaus Voormann, for making the Revolver-Cover, for me one of the most beautiful record sleeves of all times.
