About
My name is Marius Pawlitza. I was born in Königshütte, Poland in 1984 and grew up in Ludwigshafen, Germany - spending a lot of time with comics, video games and role playing games. After finishing my studies of communication design in Mainz, I started to work as an Art Director in international advertising agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy. Yet, I never gave up my passion for drawing and started developing the graphic novel series "A House Divided" together with my life long friend and writer Haiko Hörnig, 
Today I live in Frankfurt, draw comics and work as a freelance illustrator, concept artist and art director.
Please find my full vita on LinkedIn and Xing.
Illustrations
Every product deserves its very own look, no matter if it is a cartoon character or a wine bottle. That look requires careful molding – like a stone sculpture made out of a rock. I like to develop my crafts, stay open for change and attune the illustration style to the needs of your projects.
Concept Art
My biggest passions is the development of creative worlds and character designs. This can be directly traced back to my middle-school RPG sessions: The development of a player’s character is a great playground for unique character ideas. That is why I have always loved to draw our party’s characters.
Art Direction
During many years of working as an Art Director in advertising I learned a lot about communication design, branding and marketing strategies. I like to develop simple ideas, strong visuals and creative campaigns. Projects with focus on artwork, storytelling, craftsmanship, corporate design, idea sketches or video games play into my hands.
