My name is Sabine Reinhart and I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer based near Duesseldorf in Germany.
I often get asked what kind of programs and materials I use for my illustrations.
Adobe Illustrator. And chocolate. If chocolate wasn’t involved my work would be pure vector illustration.

Personal Art Project 2015
2014 was a special year to me as an illustrator. There was a huge change in my style as I fell in love with children’s illustration around March/April after doing floral designs for many years. I had some sleepless nights because I didn’t know if it was a good idea to change it but in the end it’s all about development. I tried not to think too much about it and just concentrated on new illustrations and characters. It would have been great for me to have some kind of visualization regarding this process – and this is what my personal art project for 2015 is about.
I will create single illustrations that are connected seamlessly. It’s not about a compact story like a children’s book but it shall be the visualization of my development as an illustrator. I call it “Twined Journey”.
Of course I don’t know where the journey will take me. The style may vary depending on my mood and as a result of the exploration of ideas and subjects but all illustrations shall contain flowers and quotes. It’s time to combine my flowers with my characters and scenes. I think about adding some seamless floral patterns as well as I will create many many new flowers.
