Waar ben jij zot van?

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.
