Hi! My name is Julian, a freelance illustrator and designer from the Netherlands. I illustrate all kinds of things, from crazy characters to icon design to highly detailed product illustrations and even pin-up girls. I am 25 years old and since my early childhood I have been passionate about drawing; I have been drawing ever since. About 4 and a half years ago I finished a four year study in Graphic Design in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Since then I work as a fulltime Illustrator / designer at MediaMonks in Hilversum which is a big company specialized in online advertising. I have been featured in various Dutch (designer) Magazines as well I have had the privilege to design covers of two major Dutch Daily Newspapers. One of my works: Super Smash Brawl, is exposed in Musee de Jeu Video located in Le Grande Arche in Paris, France.
