Marieke Noordhuis ABOUT ME In 2012 I began my journey at the Art academy. Here I practiced painting and video art. Eventually I worked more and more digitally and I chose to draw digitally from that moment on. I work in Photoshop and draw with a digital pen. Sometimes the drawings stay in the digital world. Sometimes I print them or I use Photoshop as a place to sketch and finish the artwork with a different medium. I like to get inspired by different shapes but mostly by what I hear or read around me. I’m not only making illustrations. I graduated as a teacher and my passion is to work with people. I like to teach anyone something new about art and even better: how to make their own art. I regularly give workshops or lessons to students between the age of 12 and 16 but that doesn’t mean this is the only age range I like to work with! I like to work with or for people because it keeps my mind at the right track. By working with other people I’m forced to think in a creative way and communicate clearly. There is no space to get tangled up in my own thoughts. I’M UNIQUE The way I draw is a sketch style and it has a hint of caricature. My work is recognizable but not necessarily realistic. Take a look at my work to get an impression of my style. I’M ON TIME I like to be on time. With my illustrations that means that I deliver on or before the deadline we agreed on and I will do anything to get there. With a workshop being on time means that I will be on the right location on time and ready to work. I’M PERSONAL I like to work person to person. For me that means that during a workshop I’m not only transferring knowledge but I try to inspire you. With an illustration that means that I listen to what you have to say as a client, what your message is and how I can put that into the illustration. "I only have one desire: to enrich myself with inspiring thoughts" René Margritte "Orange is red brought nearer to humaity by yellow." "Wassily Kandinsky MY PROCESS11st CONVERSATIONFirst we have a conversation to discover what your wishes are. What do you want, what absolutely not. We talk about the financial part as well.21st SKETCHWhen you know what you want, I make sketches of the ideas. I deliver you those as soon as possible so that you can tell me what you want me to make better and what you’re happy about. 32nd SKETCHAll the points of improvement are made better. If everything went the way it should, the illustration is exactly how you like to see it. If not, then this is the moment to tell me, so I can make it better again.4DRAWINGI take the time to give everything the right colours, make the lines as neat as possible, take out all bumps that don’t belong. In short: I make a nice product. 5OPTIMIZEI always find a couple of things that I’m not entirely happy about. I may alter a colour or a few lines. 6DELIVERYI deliver a product in the way you want it. This could mean that I deliver a physical product personally to your doorstep. But of course it can be delivered digitally as well.WORKAN OVERVIEW OF MY PROJECTSFilterAllAssignmentsOtherWorkIllustration for JoekWorkVilla ArionAssignmentsInvitation KofiAssignmentsPortrait SjoukjeAssignmentsPortrait IdaAssignmentsBiology with JoostAssignmentsBusiness cardOtherDrukke pupAssignmentsPage 1 of 21 2»SERVICESTHE THINGS I'M GOOD ATTEACHINGEverybody can make art.

The illustrations you make are very clear and informative!“Ida de Groot, “For multiple online profiles I wanted to get rid of the use of a picture but still use a recognizable image. The product made by Marieke does exactly that: it is recognizable without being a literal image. She can illustrate characteristics in a fun way so that you’re happy with your gray hair all of a sudden. I’m very pleased with the result!” https://www.linkedin.com/in/idadegroot/Kofi Boateng, I met Marieke as a potentional buyer of my car. During the viewing she told me she works as a digital illustrator. She didn’t buy the car. But she did desing an invitation and I’m very happy about it. Medaase Marieke!

Greetings, the employees of petting zoo IJsselsteeSjoukje Langelaar, For the invitation of a party I wanted to use a funny but well recognizable portrait. Marieke made me a portrait before that I use to introduce myself in the digital world. She has accomplished yet again to capture my charactaristics in a good way. Apart from making the illustration, Marieke took care of the contact with the printer. How lovely to just pick everything up ready to go.
