Matthias Seifarth is a freelance illustrator from Hamburg, Germany. He describes his art partnership with writer, Pessi Schmitt, as follows: “We are a boy and a girl who most of the time act like a drama queen and her gay shopping buddy – the only difference being that we argue about the fine lines of drawings and letters instead of the thickening horizontal stripes of the new ASOS Tops (which we are doing the rest of the day).”
Like me, Seifarth and Schmitt, vacillate between a love of and hatred for pop culture and reality TV. But: “there’s only one topic that spreads waves of pure love through our troubled minds – Our beloved mothers and with them the mother of all: Anna Wintour.”
