Nelleke Verhoeff is an artist / illustrator living and working in Rotterdam in Holland. We blogged about Nelleke’s work a while ago. For a long time she was a theatre performer, making physical and visual theatre for kids and adults, using circus techniques and masks. You can clearly see these influences in her work.
She is the owner of Red Cheeks Factory, a company named after the red cheeks she and her characters often have. Nelleke likes to tell stories through her illustrations. The characters she draws are often very recognizable. Here’s an interview we did with Nelleke on the design process of her beautiful Muscle Man T-shirt.
