Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Marloes De Vries
As a child, Marloes went through a period of being bullied at school. She sought solace in drawing, and over time she realized she wanted to become an artist. She went to art school and got a good job in graphic design, but in 2010 she took a leap and became an illustrator and writer. Her Journal Doodles, created as a way to document her life, became a hit on social media and turned into books. Marloes does illustrations for book and magazine publishers in the Netherlands, where she lives, and New York. You can follow Marloes’s Journal Doodle adventures and see more of her work on her website, marloesdevries.tumblr.com.
