Frank Höhne

Philosophy of Bock
Posted by Lucas—08/2012

Frank Höhne brought us into his home and studio space in Berlin to show how (and why) he works as an illustrator. Pen in hand, Höhne works quickly, intuitively, and spontaneously, rarely with a plan, and always with his quirky and easygoing sense of humor. Joy, or “Bock,” as it’s said colloquially in German, is an important aspect of life and work for Höhne—something which he hilariously describes in his first monograph, The Book of Bock. It’s this combination of idiosyncratic humor, refreshingly childlike spontaneity, and down-to-earth nature that has allowed Höhne to quickly establish himself as one of Germany’s leading illustrators, with clients including BMW Mini, Nike, Aveda, as well as a broad range of German newspapers and magazines.

Höhne’s first monograph, The Book of Bock, is now avaialbe from Gestalten.

Höhne is also showcasing illustrations from The Book of Bock in addition to new works at “Bockumenta 1,” his solo exhibition at Gestalten Space, which is running from August 9th to September 16th, 2012.
