An original drawing by My Buemann
Buemann's illustrations are created from thin black lines and focuses mostly on communicating difficult emotions in a simple way. She strives to cut right to the bone – No unnecessary lines. In every drawing she is trying to say a lot with very little.
"I have always been interested in people and often address people's feelings – rational or irrational – in my work. I use myself as a starting point but a lot of people recognize themselves in my work. I think it’s crucial that we don’t neglect our feelings, but that we dare to acknowledge them, which is part of being alive. I hope that my drawings can be used as a tool which for a moment, makes us feel ourselves.”
