Who dis?

My name is Anna Lena van Iersel, I’m 24 and I live in Gouda (NL). I work as an all-round creative and illustrator. I am obsessed with obtaining and sharing knowledge around creativity and productivity, as well as running an online art-focused business. I offer live illustration for events in the Netherlands, and aspire to teach art online. I also sell art online through various channels. Mostly I work with brands and individuals on independent illustration projects: such as blog and website images, product illustration, print and packaging, and brand illustration.

I get inspired when I see someone with an interesting outfit, a really fast motorbike, or a gorgeous old building. When I need creative input I watch old movies with my sketchbook in hand.

What can I do?

Live illustration

Can you imagine how cool it would be to have a live illustrator at your next event? I can draw guests or other images related to your event. That way, everyone will go home with a cool portrait or illustration which will remind them what a great day they had with you. I can also include your logo or company colors pre-printed on the paper. For live illustration I charge a minimum €65,- hourly before taxes. This depends entirely on your wishes, party size, and location. If you would like to charge per portrait, contact me for custom pricing.

Brand illustrations

You have an amazing product or service and a cool company website. However, your product lacks something. It needs some one of a kind illustrations! Contact me about packaging, editorial, stationery, fashion and other product opportunities – I’m dying to meet you.

Custom portraits

You don’t have a business but you want some portraits done? Great! Go to my page and check out how to order: click here! <3.


Everyone hates a boring report. No key insights mean no things people remember. How great would it be if your company report, whitepaper or linkedin images really stuck with people? I have a master’s degree in interaction design, and a love for everything technical and complex: meaning I can understand as well as visualize. In this way, your takeaways will not be lost!

Web images / social media images

You have an amazing company website or web shop but you feel it lacks personality. Or you need some graphics to explain your ordering process! Who you’re gonna call? And I’ll make it fit your company identity perfectly. That is right! No color clashes, just perfect harmony.  Contact me using the button below for a custom quote for your budget.

Happy clients!

It was real pleasure to work with Anna Lena. She is not only very talented but also communicates very well, is always open to feedback and sticks to her deadlines! We started working with her for social media content but would love to make good use of her talent for other occasions 🙂 – Aline and Emilie, TUTU Shop

De illustraties van Anna Lena maken je al instant blij, daarom vroeg ik haar een illustratie te maken voor LinYoli. Het moesten sieraden lengtes worden maar dan leuk. Anna Lena heeft dit perfect, en snel, om weten te toveren tot een informatieve illustratie die ook nog eens goed bij onze huisstijl past!

Anna Lena worked on a portrait of me and my best friend for our 20 yrs of friendship. Anna Lena has a unique style which is clean and cute. She took the elements of my story and placed it in the portrait which made it truly a portrait of ‘us’. The likeliness is there, if you know it’s you, which I really liked. Make sure you mention funny little details, they make the portrait! – Iris, Portrait customer
