Hiya kind visitor, my name is Sanne and welcome to my DA gallery! I graduated in 2013 as an illustrator from the artschool ArtEZ in Zwolle, the Netherlands. I hope you will enjoy my works, I'd love to hear all of your thoughts, pointers, and comments :heart:

For more information, see my website or send me an e-mail!
Well, this is still quite old news because I am so darn lazy when it comes to updating my journals! But for the sake of having a new one since the other one was from last year, here it is. ( I used to be really good you know, as a kid I wrote whole booklets full about my life and teen boyfriend drama's and more, everyday, haha. In fact, I think writing in a diary with a pen on paper would still work better for me... ) But what the title says is still true. My thesis has been finished and it is also graded, I got a 7,5 for it which is quite high at my school, so I'm very happy with it! :heart:
Now the only thing left for me is waiting till my graduation certificate arrives at school, so I can sign it and then take it home with me as a then official illustrator! Ah, that day will be a good one.
If you're curious and would like to see a picture of my blood, sweat, and tears; take a look by clicking on the link below! It's called 'The power of craftsmanship' translated, but in Dutch it sounds cooler as it rhymes, haha. It's 182 pages thick, it's enormous and I'm in love with it.…

Right now, I can finally say the pieces of my life are slowly falling in place again. The past year has been quite a mess, with classmates already graduating while I was staying behind and couldn't really start building up my life. But it's getting better now that this major thing is finally finished! :heart: I can't even put to words how good it feels. I'm talking with a publisher right now that saw my thesis laying at the publishing house ( with some of my own artwork in it ) where I had it printed and she's interested in using my work for a upcoming book publication, and I am at the moment working as a freelancer with a dutch small company by creating artwork for products they want to sell; letter paper, stickers, postcards, and more. It feels good to be busy again and have other people being interested in my work! : ) I hope I am able to show some of these works soon! The downside is I don't have much time right now to build on my personal portfolio, but earning money right now is a good thing to do as well, as there are plans in the making I will be moving to Sweden to try build up a life together with my boyfriend there. We've only been spending time together during vacations, so it will be good and a step we need to take to try live together when he is at work and I am working at home as an illustrator too! We both felt it was time for this, as no matter how fun a long distance relationship can be, it is also very very though. I'm glad we made this decision and I can't wait till the time is right for me to go there ^-^ The first big thing on our list has been found too: a new apartment with more room for us both to live in, with a hobby room for our computers and my workspace and more! : D It's lovely and we were very lucky by getting it :heart:

I'll keep you posted ( hopefully more often now, even though I say that every time with a new journal, lol! ) and let you know how it all goes!
Thanks for reading!

Yeah so I have noticed! For once it's sunnier and warmer in The Netherlands and that says something, lol! But hey, I'm sure it will also come to us in the end C : How are you doing yourself? ^-^
