What’s On Your Wall?: Karolin Schnoor, Designer & Illustrator
Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the creative spaces of the artists that inspire us.
Karolin Schnoor is a German freelance illustrator designer based in London – she’s created vivid, storytelling imagery for everyone from The New York Times to Poketo. We love her simple, cheeky illustrations, so we checked in with Karolin to see what she’s got hanging on her walls at home:
Cat keyring: A small screen-printed keyring made by a Japanese printmaker who runs her shop from Spain. Cat drawing: The first cat my niece ever drew at the age of 4. Björk portrait: Photo by Jane Bown. Fat horse: One of my screen-prints. Jumping Jack Lady: A model of one of my old doll sets I mocked up for my Etsy shop. Stripeywoman: I’m afraid I have no image credit for this, but it makes me laugh every time I see it. Oldstamp: A postcard print of an old Indian stamp. Bruce Springsteen & Bob Dylan: Photo by Ken Ragan. Icelandic women: A postcard of traditional Icelandic dress I brought back from a trip to Reykjavik 1910. Copenhagen postcard: Illustration by Ib Antoni 1950/1960.
Framework Magazine is a digital arts magazine that explores the stories behind the creative people and the beautiful things they create that inspire us at Classic Specs. Founded in 2015, Framework Magazine explores everything from the stories of artists, photographers, designers, and other creative professionals working in Brooklyn, New York to the vintage styles of the mid to late twentieth century that inspired the styles and shapes of the glasses and sunglasses we create at Classic Specs. Whether you’re an artist or an art enthusiast, we’re focused on helping you live a creative life, every single day. If you’re looking to the next art gallery to check out in your city, we curate a guide to art galleries and openings in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles every week to make sure that you’re up-to-date with the art scene happening around you. Love a pair of Classic Specs but aren’t sure how to style them? Check out our Instagram style guides, which show you how bloggers and influencers on social media style our glasses and sunglasses. If you’re going for more of a retro inspired look, read our vintage style guides to learn how to choose and style your glasses and sunglasses like fashion icons Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, and Audrey Hepburn. We’ve also got plenty of interior design inspiration in our What’s On Your Wall? series, where we invite artists from all over the world to show us what their art walls look like at home. We’re inspired by the lives of artists and creatives at Classic Specs, and we want to inspire you to live creatively, every day.
