About

Marie Pohl, aka Marijpol, is an illustrator, comic artist and designer who lives in Hamburg, Germany. A storyteller at heart, she works in various visual styles and narrative formats trying to create tension between the mundane and the bizarre and looking for weirdness in beauty.
Recently “Hort” came out, a graphic novel about friendship, caregiving and extraordinary bodies.
