My Bio

Hi there, I'm Jasmin

I'm an engineer who loves pretty, colourful things.

You can also follow my art on instagram and my own website artofkuschelirmel.de.

I share my resources and tutorials at kuschelirmel-stock as well as on my youtube channel.

Please Note:

  • I often don't have much time during the week, so answers to comments and notes will be slow - I do read every single comment and I do try to answer all in a timely fashion, but sometimes it can take a week or two.

  • I am currently unavailable for licensing or commissions. I have a full time job and this is my hobby and it should stay my hobby, anything else is just too stressful.

  • My artwork is not available for free, neither.

Tools of the Trade
Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere // Nikon D7200 + D90 [18-105 mm | 70 - 300 mm tele | 105 mm macro | 10-24 mm wide angle | 50 mm] lenses

Photomanipulation Articles

Photomanipulation Articles

Photomanipulation for Beginners an article about what photomanipulation is and what you need to try it - and on the ever so important issue of "where do I get pictures to play with?"

Of Copyright & Premades is an article that strives to explain what copyright means, who it protects and that simply putting work into something will not make using something without permission okay.

Know your Basics

A series of articles that try to explain some basics in art that you may or may not have heard of before but didn't know what to do with them. All of them are written especially for photo- manipulators, but the principles should hold true in any genre.

Video Tutorials available on YouTube

Since I don't get around to updating this journal as often as I should, I thought I'd leave you some information on me and what I do in case you're interested... My name is Jasmin Junger, by day I work for an engineering and construction company based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I live in Karlsruhe though, that means quite the long commute every day (though I can do home office sometimes). That in turn means there is little time for my photography and photomanipulation hobby - so if you are trying to reach me, please don't get mad if I don't immediately respond. I have been photoshopping for more than 15 years now and I still absolutely

[You can also read this article on my blog where it was first published] There are a million and one ways to get scammed on the internet, we all know that. And of course there are also scams directed at artists specifically (1). But there is a new scam in town that I want to talk about that is geared specifically towards online artists. If you are an artist with an online presence chances are you have received one private message or other on one of your social sites. These messages differ, depending what they are trying to sell you, but they usually have one thing in common: they sound like YOU are going to be the one earning a shit ton of money – for next to no effort. And usually that is because your art is just so special. aha. sure *sigh* (hint: no ones art could ever be that special) Note 1: I am not telling you any names because the next person trying to scam you might use a different one. Ultimately, the name is completely unimportant, what is important is to know that you
