About Me

My name is Saskia de Klerk and I am a character designer and game illustrator. I like to read deeply and widely and let my designs be inspired by theory, mythology and literature. I believe that really getting to know your subject matter and look at it through various lenses leads to a more nuanced and layered character design or illustration.

I love to get my hands dirty, whenever with paint, bookbinding or analog photography. When a project asks for a digital solution (and it often does), I strive for the same intimacy and authenticity that analog media offer.

When I’m not drawing or painting, I’m reading comics, exploring a new neighborhood or playing Dungeons & Dragons with friends.
