About



My name is Marloes (pronounced as 'Mahr-Luce') and I work as an illustrator, cartoonist and writer. I've started sharing my comics and drawings online since 2002 and more actively from 2010 on Instagram.

Starting a community

When I started posting on the internet the group I posted for was relatively small. Over the years it has grown and of course that is wonderful! But I miss the more intimate atmosphere of the old days. That's why I decided to set up Patreon, to create a safe and friendly community.

More candid
There are more things I would like to share online but the fact that everything would be public (also for people not necessarily interested in my work) made it clear for me that it has to be in a smaller community. I've noticed I've been far more candid in my personal newsletters and that's why a Patreon-community would be perfect for sharing more, like personal stories, sketches and drawings, as well as tips on being a freelance illustrator and what I've learnt over the years.

Benefits of being a Patron
Depending on what pledge you make, I will share extra bits and bobs you won't find elsewhere. Sneak peeks of new work, my journey to a more fullfilling (freelance) life, personal posts, favourite books and films, art that inspired me, work in progress, tutorials on illustration, tips and tricks on freelancing, videos, and even original art.

My ultimate goal

You supporting me in my work means a great deal to me. I hope it will be a success so I can eventually spend more time on my own projects. I would love to write and illustrate my own picture books for children and non-fiction books for adults. Fingers crossed!

Different tiers
You can choose between 4 different tiers (groups):
  • Support buddies
  • Good pals
  • Creative friends
  • Special chums

As you may have guessed: whatever you decide to pledge to, you are dear to me.
By supporting me you give me a chance to dedicate time to my own projects and books, and I can't thank you enough for that.

You can find the kind of pledges (also known as 'tiers') on this page. See what you like best!

Thanks so much for reading!


Goals
57% complete
This is my ultimate goal: it will allow me to spend time to work on my self-written picture books for children and non-fiction books for adults. I know it's a big goal and maybe a far stretch, but I can dream right? :)
