At the age of 5 my grandfather asked me how my birthday party was. Lost for words to explain, I told him “Wait! Let me just draw it for you!”
Some things are better said without words. I guess that’s just how my brain is wired. As a kid I was always drawing comics and short stories.
Later I studied Animation at the Art Academy in Rotterdam. After graduating I started my own animation studio Anikey which I ran for over 12 years. I directed several animated short films, tv series and the feature film ‘Trippel Trappel.’
In 2020 I decided to embark on new adventures as a freelancer, bringing back my focus on what I always loved to do: drawing stories.
I am a real teamplayer with a lot of experience in bringing stories to life in fun visual ways. As an artist I am versatile, for I love to keep learning and work in different styles. Whether you need just one character, a book or an entire world! I’m your man.
