Tonight's queer artist feature is Josefine Aspvik
My name is Josefine Aspvik, 24 and i'm a queer Berlin-based illustrator with she/they pronouns. I'm originally from Finland but i've been working as an illustrator and graphic designer in Berlin for about 5 years now. Despite living all around Europe, as a queer person, Berlin is the most comfortable place for me to be so i always end up coming back.
I have created an illustrational platform to celebrate unconventional queer beauties in order to make an effort to bring awareness and to break the toxic world of norms, genderroles and beauty standards as well as making an effort to normalize mental health issues. My work is quite personal and often includes pink tones, floating plants and sarcasm.
i'm very inspired by clothing designers who make sure not gender their clothing as well as unconventional beauties from around the world.
