THE CASUAL ILLUSTRATOR

THE CASUAL ILLUSTRATOR, Paul Lakwijk, is een Nederlandse illustrator en ontwerper gevestigd in de regio Eindhoven. Omdat Paul geboren en getogen is met sport, met name de voetballerij, begrijpt hij de taal van het spel en weet de emoties van het spelen te vertalen in speelse of emotioneel geladen ontwerpen. Schilder Rob Caddink zei ooit: “Life has brought me full circle, back to the loves of my childhood – football and painting. I have realized that nothing gives me more pleasure than capturing the essence of football, striving to convey the intense emotion of the beautiful game that is a metaphor for our lives.”. Door het streven naar de essentie, probeert Paul verder te kijken dan naar resultaten alleen, niet alleen in de sport, maar ook in het leven. De zoektocht naar mensen en de emoties, de dagen van vergane glorie, verhalen over tijden lang verstreken en de schoonheid in de kleinste dingen. De combinatie en de vertaling van die zoektocht in ontwerpen voor iedereen.


THE CASUAL ILLUSTRATOR is beschikbaar voor allerlei verschillende opdrachten. Van schilderijen en tekeningen tot digitale ontwerpen. Voor (zakelijke) vragen of andere verzoeken, stuur een bericht naar info@casualillustrator.nl of bel naar + 31 (0) 6 209 337 57

THE CASUAL ILLUSTRATOR, Paul Lakwijk, is a Dutch illustrator and designer based in the Eindhoven area in the Netherlands. Born and raised with sports, particularly football, Paul understands the language of the game, translating the emotions of playing into playful or emotional designs. Painter Rob Caddink once said: “Life has brought me full circle, back to the loves of my childhood – football and painting. I have realized that nothing gives me more pleasure than capturing the essence of football, striving to convey the intense emotion of the beautiful game that is a metaphor for our lives.” Striving for the essence, Paul tries to look beyond the results, not only in sports, but in life. Searching for people and their emotions, days of former glory, stories of times long gone, and beauty in the simplest of things. Combining all of them in designs for everyone to enjoy.
