Hello There!

My name is Maike Gerstenkorn. I draw illustrations, storyboards and comics, on commission and as an author.


I prefer to draw what enchants others, scares them and makes them laugh. I love mythology, fantasy and fairy tales, but also the hidden special features of everyday life.


A selection of my works is exhibited in the gallery. You can find an overview of my professional experience under Vita if you simply scroll on. You can reach me personally via Contact.


I would be happy to discuss your ideas with you without obligation and advise you on illustration and narrative visual art. I'm looking forward to your email!


With best regards,

Maike Gerstenkorn
