Lienke Raben is one of the illustrators whose work I’ve been following for years and she inspired me more than once.
Lienke is from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and she does these amazing doodles of anything you can think of. Her new business, Wallnuts Murals, is all about illustrating walls. She has a blast doing murals and shares her work process in this interview!

Why I draw so many animals? I think it’s because it gives so much freedom. Most of my drawings are a bit ambivalent, in that it’s not really clear “what animal” it is supposed to depict. I prefer drawing animal characters more than humans, because it leaves out so many decisions, like sex, age and ethnicity. It allows me to focus on creating a character with an emotion or expression!
