Illustrations by Wouter Tulp
‘I tell stories…’ A succesful drawing tells a story. I always ask myself : What is it I want to tell with this drawing, and how can I be as clear as possible. Every element in the drawing should be supporting the story. There is a story in a traditional portrait, a children’s book illustration, as well as a cartoon character or a background design for an animation. I don’t refer to a spoken story, in words. Drawing is a visual language. My story is what you see when you look at my work. Over the years I told many stories in magazines, books, commercials and animations.
