Style Talks

A SELECTED BUNCH OF PEOPLE, 10 SHORT QUESTIONS AND 10 FASHIONABLE/REFRESHING/INSPIRATIONAL/AMUSING ANSWERS. THOSE ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOR STYLE TALKS. THIS TIME WE TALKED WITH ILLUSTRATOR HYSHIL SANDER.

Hyshil Sander is an illustrator and creative director. She started drawing when she was little and never stopped. Nature, memories, animals, and good conversations are big sources of inspiration. Her work is very detailed, drawn mostly with pencil and is always crafted by hand. Clients include VolksHotel, The Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Lennebelle Jewelry and Brandt & Levie. Most of the drawing takes place in her studio in Amsterdam, which she shares with friends. On several occasions she has collaborated with other creatives, allowing her drawings to leave the paper and even take three-dimensional form, from jewellery to store-windows to children’s clothing.

She has illustrated and designed two books, a travel guide and a DIY book on handlettering (Bijdehand), which she also wrote. At the moment she is working on her first children’s book, an illustrated story about a shy little girl, finding her way into the world.
