Yule Hermans, independent artist

In my illustrations, I aim to narrate small stories. I work based on emotions, creating atmospheric and poetic images. By intertwining reality and magic, my illustrations often become layered. In 2018 I graduated frond Sint Lucas Antwerp. After that I started illustration various picturebooks for Lannoo, Pelckmans and De Eenhoorn. For Postkantoor 00/00/00, I draw solace as a response to letters to people who passed away. In addition to illustrations for children’s books, I also create editorial illustrations and autonomous work. Occasionally, I relocate my drawing table to a stage, where I create live illustrations for storytelling performances.
