love is love is art

Anna Goodson Illustration Agency (AGIA), an international illustration agency, representing Tina, released its Christmas Coasters collection celebrating love and the power of art.



Tina had a great new assignment from viertausendhertz, the biggest and best german podcast.
They wanted her to create an abstract, collage like illustration based on their logo (bottom right), for i-tunes, their website and other promotional material.

Lehigh University

Tina was commissioned to make illustrations for a spread in Lehigh University's business magazine.
It features their 1-MBA program and is about students and their summer internship experiences at companies like Tesla, Genetec and QVC (home shopping network).


the actuary

I created this illustration for a feature in The Actuary magazine, an insurance industry publication for people who calculate risk.
The article, on chemical and biological terrorism and its role in property contamination, addresses insurance liability in the instance of an attack.

new website!!

I am excited to announce that my new & refreshed website is live.


The updated site includes changes to design and navigation for both, mobile and desktop versions. I’ve also improved the structure of my content.
The news-page is new, the contact page is new too, well all is new really :)
And, coolest of all: I have added a little shop that I am very happy about. There’s a whole list of small but impactful changes, all to make your experience on my site much better for you.
Special thanks to Federico Guzzardi, for helping me realize this adventure.

I hope you like the new website, and if you have any feedback, please let me know.

Ma Vie 11 Dinge die wir jetzt lieben

Das neue Jahr hat angefangen. Vielleicht mal wieder Zeit sich mit Oma zum quatschen
hinzusetzen, in Ruhe einen gemütlichen Tee zu trinken oder die Wohnung zu renovieren.
Passend dazu gibt es einen kleinen Beitrag in der neuen MaVie Zeitschrift mit Illustrationen von mir.


App Autism

“For nearly a decade, academics and others have said that technology could revolutionize the communication abilities of people on the autism spectrum. That hasn’t happened yet. Part of the reason is that the field is pretty niche. A number of well regarded app producers are small operations started by people who developed something to help their own loved ones. These ground breakers inadvertently stunt innovation because their goal is to develop ways of automating pre-existing, tried and true (but cumbersome) tasks, not create novel approaches. Another factor is that academics can’t keep up with tech. Hundreds of apps flood the market faster than you can assemble a long-range study to evaluate efficacy. So no app has been deemed a gold standard.
But at least one piece of tech is threatening to break the mold. On the horizon, an app called :prose and its associated gear may be able to link a user’s thoughts to a speaking aid. This may make it possible for someone with even the most severe physical limitations to develop an amount of autonomy over their own language.” (Soni Sangha)

She has just passed her exams and is ready to give you an insight in the possibilities for personal development through art, by triggering your thoughts with new impulses. 



The Chronicle Review Big Brains, Small Minds

Big Brains, Small Minds


is about seeing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) studies in a Platonic light. 

We risk becoming a society of technological prowess and philosophical illiteracy.
We are on the verge of becoming the best trained, and least educated, society
since the Romans. And reducing the humanities to a type of soft science
will only hasten this trend. As the sciences rightly grow, a free society
must ensure that criticism of the sciences grows apace.

for Axel ;) and other readers who are interessted in the whole article:


inSync jewellery

Iris Saar Isaacs asked Tina to do an illustration
to promote the new jewellery collection of inSync design


baum / tree

Tina arbeitet an einer neuen Postkarte. Diesmal werden lauter Bäume zu sehen sein - Bäume im Winter genauer gesagt. Die kleinen feinen Äste und Zweige zu zeichnen dauert lange und beschert unserer Künstlerin den ein oder anderen Krampf in ihren Fingern.


Walrus & the Bear

Tina did this illustration for Walrus & the Bear, an art historian turned podcast-producer. 
Walrus will bring you compelling stories from Berlin, alternated with reflections on its controversial history. Because it is only after you understand Berlin’s central role in so many historic conflicts, that you can fully appreciate the unique situation Berlin is in today.

Chemistry World magazine

Tina Zellmer worked together with the Royal Society of Chemistry
for the Chemistry World magazine

The article is about how scientists can extract proteins and DNA samples from the bones
of prehistoric animals, but there is a question over how long proteins can really
survive and therefore how accurate the results of this research are.
