My illustrations are being used for children’s/picture books, magazines, on cards and games. They are mainly characterized by a colourful spirit, a touch of fantasy and a dreamy atmosphere, sometimes a bit different to suit the style of the product.
These illustrations are meant to be for children’s books , cards, stickers and more. I aim for them to be colourful, full of atmosphere, whimsical, adventurous and fun to look at!
My card designs are being sold on several websites, I sometimes also take personal commissions for example for birth announcement cards.
Editorial and other
Sometimes I create illustrations for in magazines and books (not aimed at children) in a more substantive way, to really get a message across. Next to that you’ll find some things here which didn’t fit in other categories.
It’s great to create art for something interactive like games. I’ve worked together with several groups of people and next to that I also create art and illustrations for tabletop games. Not only assets, but environmental concept art is also something I love to do, see more of that on the ‘fine art’ page.
Kawaii & Manga
Anime (Japanese cartoons) is something I’ve been interested in since I was 14 years old. I’ve started drawing because of this and I still am loving it. Because of this, Japanese culture and fashion inspired a lot of things in my art.
Even though making art is my work, I also enjoy creating art in my personal time. Most of these are available on prints (see the shop). These are also digitally made, sometimes even on an iPad.
