Dutch illustrator Levi Jacobs lives in Rotterdam, where he enjoys his neighbor full of cats and plants.
As most every kid, Levi was one of those who found great fun in drawing and coloring, but just after art school, he started thinking about design as something more than a fascinating hobby. His main subjects have always been animals and there is obviously a simple reason why. He has often thought of human characters as difficult and scary as if to draw them he had to deal with a mirror-like process.
Nowadays though he started to deal with human subjects, always by giving the character a feeling of coming from another dimension, quite surreal or at least far away from its own one, comparable to a sort of human-like androids and no-emotional. This is also a peculiar trick he allows himself to have more freedom of drawing them not anatomically perfect. We could then say that Levi is a fan of geometry. He starts all his artworks from a grid and gives special attention to the aesthetic of geometry as he finds it an easy process to give more discipline to his workflow. This matters also for his chosen color palettes. He limits it all the time to few options.
As most every illustrator who started with an analog approach, he now feels a bit guilty to have abandoned his pen for the digital approach, or more specifically the pen tablet. But these are now artists tools he could not live without anymore. Again, this is for Levi part of simplifying the process to give more space to the creative flow.
