Hi, I’m Linda. I’m a freelance illustrator who loves to create characters, especially within the context of narratives.
I’ve spent eleven years studying fine art, animation, illustration, and design to better my skills with figure drawing and beyond. Echoing my childhood hobby of creating picture books about families, flowers, and cottages in the woods, I’ve settled into an artistic identity centred around storytelling and characters. I’m also taking the advice of a member of the jury who evaluated my university work: “never stop telling stories”.
I draw inspiration from both intangible and real-world sources. I love music, all kinds of visual art, magic, fantasy, science fiction, and other products of the human imagination. I’m also moved by social justice, nature, folklore and myth, history, geography, and humans’ relationships with each other and their environments.
I work mostly digitally with a graphics tablet or an iPad + Apple pencil, but I’m also fond of traditional pencils, pens, and markers.
The Cursed Vermeulen is a comic about a Baroque painter who is trapped inside his own painting for 400 years by a curse. His first real chance to escape comes in the 21st century. TCV is free to read on Tapas.
