Jörg Asselborn, born in 1972, studied design and specialised in illustration. Today, he lives with his family in Wiesbaden (Germany) and works for a design studio. He is without a doubt a most talented watercolour and urban-sketch artist who dares sometimes to refer to himself as an illustartor.
His sketchbooks are always by his side, even on holiday or for daytrips. In his work you can find what has caught his attention and what he has thought worthy of recording: assorted buildings, cars, boats and other objects, great and small. Each picture telling it’s own tale or sharing it’s sensitivity. Strangely, each object always seems a little worn, broken, used or forgotten.
These illustrations are usually done on the spur of the moment. Which doesn’t detract him from creating personal worlds, inspired by other drawings, photos or quite simply his memories while sat drawing.
