Over de Shop

Hi there and Welcome to Kokonoma!

Hi! My name is Darja Brouwers and I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from The Netherlands.

A while ago I was interviewed by the beautiful conceptstore FridayNext in Amsterdam, where I also sell my art prints. This interview shows some nice pictures of my work and gives a little insight information about me and the process when I am creating. So, I thought, it's nice to share it here. Hope you like it. : )

Could you give us a short introduction on your work. Where did the idea come from? What is the story behind it?
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
I always create my drawings with a pen, I never sketch beforehand. When I start, I never know where or how it ends. In contrast to working with computer programs, I cannot erase or adjust things. The imperfections during this drawing process are a --positive- challenge to me. And this craftsmanship and uniqueness also appeals to people. I always start from a small detail that draws my attention or a certain body pose. During the drawing process a story arises in my head and I can give it as much depth as I want.
Besides illustrator, I’m also a graphic designer. For me this is a perfect combination: compositions, colour combinations but also patterns. One thing reinforces and inspires the other.

Who has been of great influence on your way of thinking?
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
People who follow their own path, have faith in what they do, create a life for themselves in their own way, surround themselves with the right people, make the most of each day and are open for new ideas and directions.

Who and what fascinates you and how does this influence your work?
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
In general I get inspired and influenced by movies, music and photography. Especially when all the elements are in perfect harmony. Like movies and music videos by Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry who expose their drive and creativity through their work. I also find inspiration in fashion and magazine photography. For my own creative process music is very important. During my illustration work, I mostly listen to classic music or fipradio and when I’m working as a graphic designer, I mostly listen to techno or house. When I’m developing a concept I choose silence, at home or in nature.
