Expedition On Earth is the website of Josephin Ritschel. I’m an illustrator, living and working in the countryside in the north of germany. I’m specialized in architecture and interior illustration.

Josephin Ritschel

“Berlin-based illustrator Josephin Ritschel makes books, prints and illustration that varies in subject from alternative forms of education, to Twin Peaks dedications and airport entertainment but maintains the impression of being in the same bustling, forested, Modernist landscape. The characters in Josephin’s drawings are reminiscent of the work of 1960s collective The Hairy Who, and the landscapes packed with fading sunsets, jagged cliffs and stylised suburbia.” It’s Nice That, 2016

“Her drawings are comforting like your favourite reoccurring dream, and feature the kind of modernist homes found in dense Scandinavian forests that you can imagine Grace Kelly hanging out in while sipping margaritas.” It’s Nice That, 2014

“Her strong interest in architecture is manifested through pencil drawings in which houses are featured in often bizarre and surreal scenes” Socks
