Christoph Kirsch, born in 1971 in Ludwigshafen am Rhein (Germany), grew up in the Netherlands, in the northern city of Groningen.

At the age of 7, Christoph won a drawing competition at Burger King. As his prize, he was allowed to eat there for free for a whole year. That’s when he decided that he wanted to make a living drawing pictures.

He studied illustration at the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels and at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Groningen.

Since 2002 he has lived and worked as an independent illustrator in Barcelona.
