about / contact
Going by the name of Thoka Maer I illustrate and create animated illustrations. With pencil, natural as it is or digitally colorized I have since created illustrations for print and screen. The scope of my work runs the gamut from the figurative/narrative to the abstract/surreal, though is held together by the consistent use of pencil and crayon.
I'm located in B̶e̶r̶l̶i̶n̶,̶ ̶H̶o̶n̶g̶ ̶K̶o̶n̶g̶,̶ ̶B̶e̶r̶l̶i̶n̶, New York.

I graduated in Visual Communication in 2014 from the University of the Arts, Berlin.

I'm available for commission work.
