As an Illustrator, I capture atmospheres by illustrating them.

Within the graduation project ‘Thinking about you’, Guusje will share her memories of her artistic mother, who has recently passed away. She invites you to the attic room where objects that her mother had used in her creative process are stored. These objects conceal memories that present how her mother managed to deal with setbacks in an optimistic way. Her mother’s optimism is to this day a guiding tool. She wants to show that creativity can be of great importance in order to get through harsh periods in life.

The website she has created invites you to experience her memories. The illustrations of the attic room on this website were made by a miniature model and created out of cardboard, clay and acrylic paint. The line drawings of the memories have initially been drawn by hand, but were later edited digitally.
