Jan Birck, author and illustrator 
I started my career as an illustrator the day I was born - in the year 1963 in Munich/Germany. 
The following years I used to paint on couches, school- tables, shirts, cars, walls and more. I did Illustrations for school magazines, before I graduated high school and began to study architecture. Headhunted by an advertising agency, I started to make money working for:
- ad agencies
- full feature animations productions, working for example together with Walt Peregoy(#101 Dalmations/Disney) 
- software productions 
- publishing houses/children books
