While browsing this year’s AOI shortlist for the Serco Prize for Illustration where Mouni’s work proudly sits, we couldn’t resist but writing to her. She describes herself as a nice drawing person, currently based in Nottingham. There’s no doubt about it, she is very nice and has brilliant taste in colour.
She tells Kollektiv, “I was born here, but studied and spent most of my life in Frankfurt, Germany. To make a new illustration, first, I mope around a bit and dread that it’s going to turn out really bad. Then I trawl through the internet and save a load of stuff on Pinterest, to try and get myself excited about what I could draw. Then I draw it. That involves tracing different parts of a sketch onto different sheets of paper, and a ridiculous number of Photoshop layers. How I feel then depends on what podcasts I’m listening to!”
