This weekend we’ve a look at the works of Tim Soekkha, an illustrator and draughtsman from the Netherlands specialised in, but not limited to, illustrated recipes.
Tim: I studied Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and Law at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. I’ve had jobs as a visual artist, a graphic designer, a desktop publisher, a set painter, a producer, a coordinator and a as a salesman. I also curated art shows and worked as a freelance para-legal advisor.
After I began posting ‘just for fun’ illustrations on websites like They Draw and Cook, Facebook and Instagram I was asked by etenuitdevolkstuin.nl and hungryhus.com a.o. to draw illustrated recipes for their blogs and websites.
A conscious effort to make my work as appealing as possible coincided with my favorite way of creating images: I mostly work with pen, ink and watercolors. My deliberate line work is full of vibrant energy providing an organic feel to his work.
I have my own style but like to keep all my work attractive, radiating and captivating in terms of technique, colors and concept.
