Elise Vandeplancke (1992), illustrator
Inspiration seeps in from all around me, often without me noticing. I love to explore the human form and natural patterns: plants, light, landscapes.
I prefer to draw on the train when I’m returning from my job: I take my sketchbook and just start. I put the pencil on paper and things spontaneously appear.
Before, I focused on graphic design, but I rediscovered drawing and it brings me a lot of joy. I want this to show in my work. I love experimenting with colour: this turns my sketchbook into a source of inspiration, full of colours and ideas.
For ‘Kashan’, I chose screen printing. It’s simple and mechanical, but also a bit magical.
