BR x Vonik
Esther aka Vonik, which is her artist name, created the illustration Thank God I’m Lost especially for Breaking Rocks. She made the illustration inspired by our prints and clothing. At the moment she is traveling through the Philippines.
Esther tells us more about herself
I’m Esther, but I work under the name Vonik, because there are already a buttload of illustrators named Esther out there. I know it’s a bit cliche to say, but as a kid I always loved drawing.I’ve had weekly lessons starting at about the age of 8, because I didn’t really want to do much else. After that I did an illustration study at Willem de Kooning art school, and here I am now.
The breaking rocks illustration was a lot of fun to do, the 420 floral sweater and the bird park print drew most of my attention; they were a great inspiration. And since I love wandering around, whether it’s on the internet, my hometown Amsterdam or a new place when traveling (of course preferably when traveling :p), I wanted to combine that feeling with the birds/flower theme, et voila, many hours later you have got this print.
My free style is kinda loose, detailed, quite colorful and maybe a bit dreamy – for my assigned work like logos or company illustrations I can get a bit more serious (only if necessary, of course). Hope you guys like it : ) And I’m happy to say: greetings from the Philippines!
