IN THE PICTURE

By Leontine, January 12, 2021

Last summer Lisette Jespers and Ingrid Bosma put me as an illustrator ‘in the picture’ in a four minute film. It was very nice to look back and wonder: what brought me here? I roamed through old photo albums, drawers and maps. Brought old and new work together, got interviewed, filmed and so… my story unfolded. It’s in Dutch, I hope you enjoy it!


Would you like to see more of my work, have a look at my portfolio-page. Any questions? Call me!

WILHELMINAPARK

By Leontine, November 17, 2020

Last week I finished my fifth family portrait. This one is for a family in Utrecht, living with their cat and dog aside the beautiful Wilhelminapark. They love being together in their living room, talking, playing piano, enjoying the view and the open fire, as you can see!

TOO WEIRD?

By Leontine, November 23, 2020

The main character in the movie Zootropolis is Judy Hopps, a courageous rabbit who wants to become a police officer to make the world a better place. Aaf made this costume and walked to school in it last Monday. "I don't know if this was such a good idea," she says when we're almost there. Then she goes, looks back for a moment and disappears behind the large doors.

Aaf made this Judy Hopps costume and went to school in it.

For this week I wish you individuality and courageous steps.

LINE ILLUSTRATIONS

By Leontine, November 14, 2020

Lately I made new line illustrations for several bloggers and public speakers. While sparring about the story and sharing ideas on the phone, both the story and the drawing come to life and… find focus! This one I made for Nienke Oosting from PGOsupport.

Bij blog PGOsupport: ‘Gun jezelf de tijd om stil te staan.’

MORE FAMILY PORTRAITS

By Leontine, September 10, 2020

What a festive process to paint the family life of Jaantje, André, Berend and Lot with their three cats on paper. I got to know them like this during a sunny afternoon in their garden!

Welcome!

I am a Dutch illustrator, living and working in Utrecht.

I illustrate for companies, writers, public speakers and researchers. I love to hear their stories and help to concretize and complement these with my drawings.

I also paint what I see, what strikes me or inspires me: people, exhibitions, photography, fashion… I make portraits of kids, friends and families on location and you can ask me to paint visual notes during mission/vision sessions.

Would you like me to illustrate your book, article or presentation, are you interested in visual notes or would you like me to make a portrait of your loved ones? Give me a call or send me an email!

On this page I share my latest work and news. Check out my Illustrations-page for more!
