Bodil Jane’s illustrations focus mainly on women. Those are painted in bright, vivid, colors, and juxtaposed against textured backgrounds, embellished with flowers and plants.
“Colors are very important in my work,” said Jane in an interview with the &Klevering blog. “I’m always looking for new and exciting color combinations. I love full illustrations with a lot of different objects and patterns.”
“I think they have a very handmade feel because I use a lot of textures and elements painted in watercolors,” adds the Amsterdam-based creative. “I like illustration styles that are non-digital or appear to be, and that are a little clumsy and charming. I don’t like perfect things in general.”
And other people seem to like her illustration style just as well, with more than 200k followers and clients that include The New Yorker to Unicef. “Growing up, I was always making things,” she recalled. “When we went on vacation I always brought scrapbooks, journals and drawing books with me.” An early passion which has blossomed ever since.
