Jim Luckhardt

Join Captain Zaphira and his crew on the search for the Pearl Brew. Through his old sketchbook you will experience the journey as if you were there. Salty winds, heavy seas and some good tea. Let's go on an adventure!

Hi, it's me!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

Relaxed, working somewhere in a beautiful studio with lots of artwork on the walls and friendly people all around me.

Who or what inspires you?

Uncle Iroh

How do you approach a new project?

I mostly start with mood boards and research, where I can nerd out on the topics and form a solid foundation for my drawings and concepts.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Use the print lab and all the materials, like types of paper, color, oils etc. you can get. It is really a great opportunity to learn new stuff and experiment. The print lab is awesome, wanna do some lino? Yes! Wanna do some letterpress? Yea! Wanna heat deboss some fancy golden letters into your book? Oh Yea!

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

Wanted to try it out, I like it. It really kinda just went like that haha

What are you not going to miss in your studies?

Surveys, so

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

I guess I really need some sleep, oh and chocolate!

Say hi!
