These are a few of our illustrators

Theo is better than anyone to get an overview of a situation and give it some clarity.

With lots of experience as a comic artist, Jeroen is great to make humorous illustrations.

Mieske can sum up with just a few lines the core of your issue, and illustrate it with humour and charm.

Betina makes insightful illustrations based on her background in Industrial Design.

Live tekenen

A live illustrator is a fast-drawing artist, able to capture information in images very quickly. A live illustrator is also a kind of note-taker 2.0. Instead of summarizing what’s discussed during a conference or event, we summarize it in images. This makes ideas immediately clear and accessible to everyone at a glance.

A live illustrator adds a lot of value at events which are unusual or not a weekly occurrence. So if you’re organizing a brainstorm or a day of team reflection then having a live illustrator is a great idea.

It’s also fun at conferences or events. While a speaker is speaking, the illustrator makes a drawing to summarize what’s being said. For everyone present, it’s a nice way to see the main points of the speech. An illustrator can also make an overview of the whole day, bringing together the events of the conference.

Have a look first at which illustrator suits you best. Then you can use the ‘Book’ button to hire the relevant illustrator. We quickly check if they’re available and let you know. If so, you can make the booking final! The illustrator will contact you to discuss in advance what you want so they can prepare visually for you.

The illustrator can bring their own materials, or you can arrange this. There are various possibilities: the illustrator can make a summary on one large canvas, or make lots of separate drawings on small sheets. Depending on what you want and what suits you, we’ll try to arrange it!

Live illustrating offers us a different challenge from making films. When you’re making a film you always have time to think about things, but with live illustrating you have to react quickly and instantly transform something into an image. We believe we can really add value this way: to show things more clearly, give an overview during a conference of event and add some much need fun and playfulness!

We ensure that people get to know how to use their drawing skills during work in a low-key way. We focus on getting everyone to draw a lot during the workshop. We start with simple assignments and progress to a more complicated one. There’s always room for feedback or a particular direction.

Visual communication is increasingly important. Instead of endless discussions, it’s better to experience an idea and get started on it straight away. We ensure people develop their self-confidence when it comes to using signs and small illustrations in their work, as well as teaching people how to think visually. Because our workshops are all practical, everyone can practice their skills and take away something valuable from the workshop.

Even during conferences or on team days, it’s a fun, relaxing activity, as well as being useful. People can relax, be creative and discover they can actually draw (because most people think they can’t). There’s a nice atmosphere which make people feel much more positive about their new skills.

The illustrator can bring the materials themselves, or you can arrange that. It can be fun if everyone gets a set of markers and a notebook to keep after the session to they can keep using their visual skills. Notebooks branded with your company logo are often a nice touch. It’s a good idea to discuss this before the workshop.

We didn’t really come up with the idea ourselves, but there was a lto of demand from the companies we worked with! Now we sometimes combine drawing workshops with live illustration and making a video, so that the employees of a company are really involved in the whole process. We love to have fun and it’s really nice to see how enthusiastic people become when they realize they actually can draw….
