Liam draws what he likes and likes what he knows, so he draws that, knowingly. He confuses himself frequently by trying to explain what he does. His default illustration style has been described as everything from 'geometric' to 'what have you got against wiggly lines?' - Liam merely knows the pop-culture references are inherent, and they're easy to produce on a trackpad. His illustration and animation pieces have been displayed worldwide. He knows for a fact Stan Lee and Boba Fett like the work, and Lucasfilm's legal department don't so much.
Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss met in 2005. Since then they've run their studio in the heart of little Vienna as a team. Both having quite different professional backgrounds see their advantage as being able to combine the disciplines of illustration, photography, design, and 3D, and connecting them depending on the particular job's needs. Playing around with ideas and looking at subjects from uncommon angles is one of the ways in which the duo form their concepts. They're always training their skills on free works, in additional to the daily business. In 2010 Atelier Olschinsky launched it's most ambitious project so far: Nevertheless Magazine, a 320 page biannual compendium containing the things they have a crush on.
