Alice Oehr is a designer and illustrator based in Collingwood, Melbourne. She’s worked on projects for Broadsheet, Go-To Skincare, Frankie Magazine, Kloke and Baker D. Chirico, among others, and has featured multiple times on The Design Files. We love her and we love what she does, so we asked her to design the very first Pinot Palooza magazine cover for us. And it’s SO GOOD! Read more about her here.
Pinot Palooza: How long have you been drawing for?
Alice Oehr: Like most kids, crayons and textas were in my hands a lot when I was growing up, so drawing has always been there for me as an antidote to boredom. But as for drawing professionally, it’s been 8 years now.
PP: When did you realise you could make a living from drawing?
AO: It took me ages to realise I could make a living from drawing – it was never something I considered in high school. When I finished there, I mucked around for a few years, studying, travelling, having a good time, and then I knuckled down and studied graphic design when I was 22. After that I did a few internships, worked a few jobs, and finally had enough experience and had met enough people to begin working fulltime on my own a few years ago.
