I’m a Dutch graphic designer & illustrator, and hummingbirds are a huge inspiration for me. Their hovering abilities, their variety in colors and shape…

To honour their beauty and variety, I started a hummingbird illustration project. In this project I illustrate 300 different hummingbird species while experimenting with different illustration styles, techniques and materials. In every style or material I illustrate 5 different species.

I started this project going back to where my love for illustration started: by making very realistic color pencil drawings. At this moment, 100 hummingbirds have been illustrated.
