Anja Mulder

Anja Mulder is a talented illustrator, a collection maker and a photographer from Holland. She has a great passion for drawing and has been drawing ever since she was a little girl. Her inspiration comes from music, nature, old books, the city, her kids, internet, friends, movies "there is a whole world of eye candy out there that is so inspiring to me." - she says.

"Usually I have a whole idea of the illustration must look like. It’s in my head, with clear lining. Then I start sketching, and the idea gets a more realistic shape. I draw a few pencil lines and ink the lines soon after that. Or, when I am impatient, I start inking immediately. It’s always a bit of a struggle to decide when a illustration is finished. Sometimes I draw too much, I can loose myself in drawing details. And then I make another drawing, just until I think it is right." - via.

You can see lot of detail in her drawings that are done on vintage paper that's sometimes patterned and have rough edges, stamped or have text on it which makes each of her drawing one-of-a-kind. You can visit her online store for prints, postcards, photographs on wooden tile.
