About the author

Jörg Asselborn, born in 1972, studied design and specialised in illustration. Jörg Asselborn is a tireless traveller and talented watercolour illustrator. Today, he lives with his family in Germany and works for a design studio. He is without doubt a most talented watercolour and urban-sketch artist, who dares, sometimes, to refer to himself as an illustrator. This is his first book.

His sketchbooks are always by his side, even on holiday or for day trips, for illustrations  usually drawn in the moment. In these drawings you will find what has caught his attention and thought worthy of recording; each picture sensitively telling its own tale; each object seeming a little worn, broken, used or forgotten.


Jörg Asselborn’s work exudes an acute sense of detail and finesse that it is almost uncanny. This book is a compilation of his very best work from his many journeys around the world, and from time to time he paints imaginary places too – for fun! As is typical in Jörg Asselborn illustrations, the lines and colours dance in perfect harmony, reflecting  the subtle beauty. Through his brushes we contemplate each scene and object from a unique perspective. A majestic chimney stack, a twisted wooden beam, or a magnificent beached submarine – they all come to life before our eyes.

Jörg Asselborn is a tireless traveller and talented watercolour illustrator. Wherever he goes he is never without his brushes and sketches whenever he can.  This book reveals some of the very best work from his journeys around the world, including Germany, France, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Netherlands.
