Artist Research (Ludwig Holwein)

So this dude (Ludwig Hohlwein, 1894 - 1939) was a watercolorist, but he started out as an architect and it is a good thing that he did not stick with it because DAMN these are some find pictures. Also, he was German, which automatically makes him some kind of guy that you do not want to fuck with or else he will spray language-spit all over you. There is not a lot of information about him that I could find (because people are IGNORANT) but from what I can tell, he made a name for himself as a poster artist (posterist?) mostly because people could instantly recognize his style. And it wasn't hard, 'cause you'd see that shit everywhere. By 1924 he had already designed over 3,000 different posters.
Note to self: Draw more and less shittily.
