Because he is insanely funny and completely tenderly true. And he will make me laugh like crazy about the whole thing. Abrams. Every single time i come across a piece of his work, or worse, which is often as he either works all the time, draws incredibly fast, it is wonderful.

Also available from christoph Niemann: Sunday Sketching and I LEGO N. Y. I love every column he did and will do. Maira kalman, author/illustrator of And the Pursuit of Happiness “Christoph Niemann is the best illustrator alive. The struggle to keep up with housework became a battle against adorable but crafty goblins, and nostalgia about New York manifested in simple but strikingly spot-on LEGO creations.

If he wasn’t such a genuinely sweet man, we’d surely hate his ass a lot. Stefan sagmeister, author of things i have learned in My Life So Far “Few books have more probingly and humorously gotten inside the mind and day-to-day experience of an artist. Npr. Org "what’s terrifying to me, certainly, and possibly to many of his peers is that nearly every idea he has seems to be equally well formed.
