MY NAME IS Marie Beschorner and I’m a fulltime freelance artist and illustrator based in Germany with more than 10 years of experience working in the creative industry. My interest and passion lies within the art of visual storytelling, which was probably sparked by my love for literature, films, video games and art.
MY EXPERTISE ranges from visual development and concept art to highly polished final art. I focus on environments and characters and create visuals for advertising and campaigns, video games, apps, books and films.
I’m creating art under the pseudonym Company of Wolves – a name inspired by Angela Carter’s short story of the same title – since 2013.
A GLANCE INTO my portfolio quickly reveals that I’m fascinated by unsettling and beguiling tales of alienation, intimacy and the unknown. Deep in the forests of my imagination lies another story to be told.
ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO – in the early beginnings of my freelance career – I started out with a focus on light-hearted, atmospheric little scenes with cute animal characters, inspired by the vibrant and highly rendered look of Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. I’m still enjoying these artistic origins of mine beside the exploration of darker moods and subjects.
