Tosca Maria Anna van der Weerden

Graduated at the AKV|St.Joost Acadamy of Arts in the Netherlands, where I studied illustration from 2013-2017. Apart from making illustrations I also love creating animations and painting murals. In august of 2017 I will begin my master in animation.


I love to tell stories with a lesson in them. These lessons can be traditionally educational, but the educational part can also be subtle. I always try to make my work colorful, detailed, humorous and real. I love to make detailed illustrations to get lost in. The biggest challenge for me is to combine rather overwhelming images with simpler work that contains a clear focus.



I love to be at Summery festivals, Museums and the Zoo.
I also love to drink tea, sketch and watch movies with my friends.

My favorite things are Motown music, really old houses and dachshunds.
