Rohrer on his process:

"I am inspired by a wide variety of things. Often when I'm out in nature or when I'm having stimulating conversations with friends. In these situations, I come up with creative ideas that I then put down on paper.

I've also often taken part in Inktober, where I was able to let my creativity run free.

Sometimes works are created very quickly, i.e. in a few hours, sometimes over years. The creation process here is lengthy and I often completely change these works until I am satisfied with them."
