“The devil is in the details,” a German proverb used by star architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, alludes to a mysterious element hidden in the details. Join illustrator and lettering artist Birgit Palma, who uses basic geometric shapes and letterforms in her work, to see how details are a crucial part of bringing her artwork to life, distinguishing it and making it unique, and why she’s fascinated with them as a hidden superpower, not only in design but also in life.
You’ll learn how details like these almost invisible but critical elements that make up the spirit of an illustration can completely change the tone of a work of art:
- Tiny color choices
- The right composition, not just on the canvas but also in real life
- Paying attention, being nice to other people (yes, that’s a detail too), which can help give you and your work a personal touch
