My name is Nadia Meezen, I’m an illustrator and animator from the Netherlands.
In 2014 I graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, with my short film Beren op de Weg (Bears on the Road), but I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember.
It’s usually drawings that tell a story, big or small. By themselves, supporting a written story or moving like an animated film.
To create these drawings I like to use a mix of techniques. I do this both digitally and traditionally.

I’m always interested in making illustrations or animations for new projects! I can make animations from concept to finish, but I’m also available to work in a team as a freelance character/background designer, animator, storyboard artist or director.

Apart from that I like to work on commissioned pieces like portraits, wedding cards or birth announcements.

If you’re interested in something like this, you can always email me for more information. You can email me either in Dutch or in English!
