Illustrated products, prints and original art by Milou Trouwborst.
My name is Milou Trouwborst (1991), I'm an illustrator living and working in Utrecht, The Netherlands. My studio is located on a beautiful little island. This inspiring island is the place were my ideas end up on paper or are created with other materials.

In this shop you can buy the out come of my ideas as a postcard, an artprint, or the original work. All products are handled with care and personally sent by me. In this process I aim to work with as little waste and sustainable products as possible.

I try to send every order within 3 working days and I will always let you know when I do so :-) I ship world wide, for shipping details, please visit your shopping basket.

If you have any questions or request, please don't hesitate to contact me! You can sent me a message to mail@miloutrouwborst.nl

2018 🌟 This was such a lovely year for me personaly. At 27, for the first time I feel like I am exactly at the right place at the right time right now :-) So 2019, if this is what you got for me, where can I sign please? 
After graduating in 2016 but not spending much time illustrating as I’d like too, in April this year I decided to quit my side job to only focus on my own business for a while. 
Time flew, but I am so happy I did - I worked on some lovely projects and putting more time, energy and love in to it starts to pays off, little by little. I did start a new side job I love too - baking cookies, pies and bread - and right now, it all feels like the perfect balance for me.

I hope you too feel like that what you are doing, is that what YOU want. Or at least is leading to where you want to go, to live a life you want to live. I am so aware this is not easy for all of us on this crazy world, but it is what I wish for anyone 🌻

As a kid I had trouble with spelling and learning/automate certain things. I still do, but I find books so very interresting and great but I just can’t concentrate! 📚
2 years ago I did start reading to a boy with a language deficiency. I really enjoyed seeing him learn new words, and him being enthusiastic about learning me new words in his native language.
These 2 things inspired me for the story I created and illustrated during the @theworldofrosestories project. -

As the story continues (see previous post), there is no other option than that Mimoen learns to read himself. In the book you’ll see him discover and collect letters on a playful and imaginative way. This way he’s creating his own alphabet. At the end of the book, Mimoen learned to read and reads to his little baby brother, but then… he falls a sleep himself. 💤
And so the book ends with the last letter from the alphabet ;-) #tobecontinued#learningtoread#lerenlezen#voorleesexpress#newlanguage#childrensbook#childrensstory#rosestories#childrensbookillustration
Last friday I held a pitch about the childrens story I’ve been working on! 🌝
Under the guidance of @theworldofrosestories and my mentor @miljapraagman I created and illustrated a story about Mimoen, a little boy who loves books but can not read jet. Luckily his mom or dad reads to him every night. But then, every night, there is the same problem.. his mom or dad falls a sleep while reading, long before the book is finished...... 💤

Together with 16 other illustrators and authors who where also selected for this program, we presented our own stories to an audiance of publishers, film- and theater makers, game developers and more. 
I’ll tell a bit more (about the story and my motivation) in an other post, because I am always talking to much here on IG ;-) #childrensbook#childrensbookillustration#childrensbookillustrator#picturebook#illustratedbook#postcard#reading#lovebooks#project#rosestories#publisher
My first digital line drawings 🌚 Had to create vector files for a commission for ‘jeugdgezondheidszorg’, which I have been working on for a long time. After a lottt of sketching the result is about 20 illustrations like this! Eventually also with colour details but I prefer black and white right now :) Whould you like to see more?

In the bus, looking back at a lovely weekend in Antwerp at @grafixxfest ! I’ve listened to inspiring talks, observed a wide selection of exhibited work, watched beautifully made animations, went through so many books and zines, talked to lovely people and friends, made some tiny quick etchings at one of the workshops, drank beer with live jazz playing and ate fries for dinner.. A lot of good energy to bring home & to the studio :-) #grafixx#grafixxfest#workshop#creativeworkshop#etching#printingtechniques#ink#paperlover#antwerp#inspiration#feelinginspired#seeyounextyear
