Hey! My name is Esther, a.k.a Vonik.
I’m a freelance illustrator from the Netherlands with a love bright colours and playful lines. I enjoy working on various projects including prints, patterns, packaging, and paintings.
While being heavily inspired by analog printing and other handmade techniques, about half of the projects I work on result in a digital end product. This has made me quite ‘fluent’ in using traditional media such as paint, markers, and inks, as well as digital tools like Procreate, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
Some of my favourite subjects include the outdoors, camping, anything botanical, animals, food, silly jokes, and funny people. A random pick form my list of dream projects: illustrated endpapers, a patterned bedding set, outdoor murals, snack food packaging, a cookbook, and perhaps an incredibly large fully illustrated puzzle?
You can find prints and postcards in my webshop, as well as in several independent stores in Europe. For wholesale inquiries, please reach out via email.
More info about the passion project named Wallnuts Murals, where Lienke Raben and I join painting forces and design and hand paint murals together, can be found here.
In addition to my obvious love for drawing, I’m an absolute sucker for pizza, Harry Potter, plants, old stuff, campfires, and birds. On my days off, I enjoy hiking, exploring new cities, visiting botanical gardens, and having a beer. That’s the short(ish) version of what I do and who I am. If you’re interested in working together or have any questions, feel free to contact me. I’m always open to new ideas.
