Yeye Weller’s Colourful Designs with a Refreshing Perspective

Yeye Weller has little time for clichés and doesn’t suffer tired catchphrases gladly. He has a refreshingly honest approach to his work, which comes across in the wonderful colours and patterns on which he happily focuses his time.

Yeye’s playful approach to everything he does comes through loud and clear in the images he creates. His vibrant pairings of different colours and forms makes for intense and uplifting designs.

He treats us to some fun illustrated behind the scenes photos as he talks about how he makes his work, and his perspective on how things should be.

My Name is Yeye Weller, I´m based in Munster, Germany and work as an Illustrator. 

I hate slogans on t-shirts and ‘carpe diem’ isn’t my motto in life. My biggest inspiration is the internet and anyone who says something else is a liar.

My Work is a mixture of handmade and digital. Basically, it starts with an ink drawing on paper. Doodling is great and has been my passion since the first days in school.

To go over these sketches, I use a tablet and Photoshop because I am too lazy to teach myself Illustrator. I work mainly with hundreds of layers, which is very chaotic, but I don’t care.

I love colours, humor and balance. These are the three necessities for my work. I don’t have a smart message or a device for freedom.

I am just clever enough for creating colourful things.
