Hello! my name is Klaus Pitter, I was born in 1947 in a little village in Upper Austria. I liked to draw from early childhood.
When I was around 15 years old I created my first cartoons. It did not last long and some of them were published in magazines and newspapers. It did not think this could be a real profession, but after some detours, I landed at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. We were occupied with poster designing, illustrating, photographing and trying out printing techniques.
After my studies, I was working as a freelance cartoonist and illustrator for magazines and publishing houses in Austria and Germany. Nowadays I prefer drawing my own cartoons for competitions and exhibitions and love to do some poster-designing if there is a possibility.
I have done comic-workshops for kids – although I’m not sure you can „learn“ cartooning. I would not have wanted somebody to tell me how to do…, I was lucky to win prizes and diplomas at international cartoon contests – e.g. in Argentina, Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Iran, Israel, Luxembourg, Makedonia, Romania, and Turkey.
There are many people doing great work by organizing such events and those encourage artists to try their best.
