I’ve just discovered the works of Christoph Niemann, who illustrates for The New York Times, and his works come with a sense of humour that’s just indescribably wry. Take for instance, how he hijacked a game of rock, paper, scissors so the hand gestures ‘might be helpful for our representatives in Washington’.
New York Times illustrator Christoph Niemann has created a brilliant visual diary outlining the peril and pitfalls that beset the everyday passenger based on his recent experience flying from New York to his home town of Berlin.
Illustrator/designer Christoph Nieman had a hit a while back with his I Lego NY project, in which he used Legos to illustrate iconic New York buildings, street scenes, and cultural touchstones. The rest of his portfolio is equally impressive, using visual one-liners to communicate complex ideas in simple and whimsical ways.
Berlin-based conceptual illustrator Christoph Niemann’s recent LEGO post on the New York Times blog is fantastic. He recently moved back to Germany after eleven years in New York, and apparently, he misses the city a lot.
