After-Hours: Stephanie Wunderlich & Jens Bonnke
We had the pleasure of meeting several illustrators from Germany last week, among those were Stephanie Wunderlich from Hamburg and Jens Bonnke from Berlin. We had met Jens several years ago when I was a speaker at Illustrative: Berlin; both Jens and Stephanie have been regulars in our annual shows.
The illustrators were in town for the American Illustration Party and of course taking in the sites in New York. They met through a mutual friend, Orlando Hoetzel who was Stephanie's studio-mate in Hamburg and now is sharing a studio with Jens in Berlin. Contacts count. Stephanie was staying with Nora Krug in Prospect Heights—Monika Aichele had introduced the two when they both lived in Hamburg. Jens was staying with his friend Ingo Fast in Red Hook.
Stephanie and Jens were on their way to dinner at Nora's and had time to sample our homemade guacamole and tortilla chips appetizer accompanied by fresh lime margaritas!
