As the typical illustrator’s story goes, Maarten has always been drawing since the day he could hold a pencil, doodling on every bit of paper that dared cross his path.
At some point during secondary school, his main focus swapped from illustration to multimedia and digital communications. He then spent the last 2 years of secondary school and all 6 years of college specialising in web- and digital design.
In 2014, however, when a friend asked him to draw something to put on a birth announcement, Maarten rediscovered his love for drawing and decided to dig deeper into the world of illustration.
At this point in time, he aims to make the world a little nicer by creating vibrant and atmospheric illustrations for everyone to enjoy.
