I am a skilled professional, fashion illustrator and designer, with a lot of international experience, specialising in print and online. I have worked to deadlines varying from months to as little as a few hours. I also love to write!

My field of work is mostly lifestyle and fashion illustration. Recent clients include: Unversal Studios and Illumination Entertainment (US, Ca), Bucherer (DE, CH, AT), Hackett (UK), Adam, the Magazine (CH), The Watch Gallery (UK), MNSWR.com (International), Hemingsworth (UK), Lutti (UK), Pelote (SE), Gemmarium (IT), Carlton Publishers (UK) and Oger (NL); have a look at my client list and you'll get a pretty good idea of where I'm at. I also design concepts for Campaigns or visual branding and storyboards for various advertising agencies and media companies. 
At the age of 20 I taught myself to play the piano. A few years later I discovered the hammond organ and I started to play in bands. My musical carreer has recently turned semi-professional with me playing the keys in the Sean Webster Band, about which you can find out on the music page of this website.
Others about me:

Claire Guillaume, Bucherer AG
I have had the occasion to work with Hilbrand on a project for Watch and Jewellery retailer Bucherer. Hilbrand is a pleasure to work with, very professional with perfect communication and attention to detail. He has been providing us with beautiful artworks, always keeping us informed at all stages of the creation of the illustrations and taking into account every instruction we gave.
ANKE LAARSHUIS, visual strategist Bureau Blink
Hilbrand is niet alleen een hele goede, snelle kunstenaar / illustrator, hij denkt ook conceptmatig en commercieel mee. Hij tilt een concept op en weet er schwung en gevoel in te leggen. Prettig en rustig in de omgang, snel en alert in uitwerking. Zijn werk brengt overtuiging, enthousiasme en energie.
MATT JONES, director MONK London
Hilbrand is an incredibly talented artist and designer, who I genuinely believe enjoys every single line and brush stroke he makes. His style is current yet inimitable and his quietly confident manner will only make you want to work with him more.
MURRAY CLARK, Editor at The Watch Gallery
Hilbrand was a very communicative and talented freelancer we contacted for an online campaign - the first instance in which we've used an illustrator. We remained in frequent dialogue with Hilbrand and the whole process from briefing to delivery was smooth, reliable and detailed. The team was more than impressed with the finished artwork and I would strongly recommend Hilbrand to any client looking for an illustrator.
