German illustrator Daniel Stolle is known for his concept-driven darkly humorous sketches. Since the beginning of his career in 2007, he has been commissioned by a number of publications—The New York Times, DIE ZEIT, New Scientist, Men’s Health, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker, to name a few. He’s known for creating works of visual poetry, using texture, negative space, and minimal color to weave complex narratives. Stolle's preferred style is an abstract synthesis of graphic art and conceptual space. Often his works deal with modern technology, depicting iPhones, bar codes, and computers in a morose tone.

Recently, Stolle has been trying to break into the worlds of stamp design and animated film.
