Alexander Czernin Msc.
born in Vienna. Now, I am living and working here again. Stations in between were Graz, New Zealand and Nepal.
inspired by Sven Hedin´s illustrated travel reports, I discovered my passion for landscape-watercolor painting. Since then, I have always been travelling with my sketchbook and watercolors.
first cartoons evolve, in order to keep me awake during the endlessly boring night-shifts in the Austrian army. As some senior officers recognize themselves in my caricatures, I manage to demobilize without any decoration to a higher rank.
|1992 – 2011||parallel to my studies (University of Agricultural Sciences, Vienna) and to my work as a landscape planner (first planning office Gartenbau Lederleitner,- then 7 years at freiland Environmental Consulting ltd.), I attend several arts-classes in the field of portrait, comic, caricature, nude painting, architectural drawing and digital illustration. Trainings were attended e.g. at the so-called Künstlerische Volkshochschule Vienna, illuskills-Vienna, Akademie Wildkogel und Zeichenwerk.|
|2011||While travelling in Nepal during a sabbatical, I decided to follow my passion and put my focus into illustration.
|2012||Companystart freihand-zeichner e.U.|
My main focus as an illustrator:
- Graphic recording (live drawn protocolls at larger meetings)
- Big pictures
- Image videos
- Illustrations for presentations (pictures instead of powerpoint-text)
- Projectvisualisations for landscape-architects and spatial planners
