Anke Eissmann (khorazir) Profile
About / Bio
At the moment my chief inpiration are the writings of J.R.R.Tolkien, which I discovered and was immediately captivated by about 11 years ago. Linked to that are other sources of inspiration, such as mythology, history (especially the early Middle-Ages in Europe), and nature. Artists I admire and whose artwork inspires me are (in no particular order): Jan Vermeer, Edward Hopper, the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau-artists like Alphonse Mucha, British book-illustrators from the "Golden Age" of illustration like Arthur Rackham, contemporary illustrators like Alan Lee and many more. Also I am very interested in cinema and movie-making, and here in particular in animation and cinematography.
