My name is Polli aka Tintentupferl and I’m living in a small village near the Alp mountains creating work for picture books, children’s apparel, magazines and other licensing products.
My cozy and charmingly heartfelt illustrations are created with a mix of digital and traditional media and inspired by all things cute and magical.
I love nature and exploring the outdoors, so if you can’t find me in on my desk, I’ll be up in the mountains taking in all the wonderful inspiration that can be found there.

More of Me
Even in my childhood, you could find me at home with a book or crayon in my hand, when I wasn’t fighting with my friends against proud knights for the right of the poor or flying with dragons over magical worlds.
Arriving in the adult world, I decided to study media design and worked successfully in this field for many years.
Yet something BIG was missing and after a couple of years I finally found my way back to my greatest passion, illustration. Dreaming myself into other worlds has always been one of my favorite pastimes.
