Daphne van den Heuvel

I'm in love with these illustrations by Daphne van den Heuvel of the Dutch model/photographer Iekeline Stange. I'm a sucker for bold fields of color combined with graphic black and white "comic book" style figures. And van den Heuvel captures Stange's unique features perfectly, which she outlines and emphasizes through the use of defined black shadows, almost as if Stange is lit by spotlight in each image.

Daphne van den Heuvel is also a fashion designer. You can see a few of her designs modeled here.


  1. Fantastic illustrations! Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are gorgeous! They remind me of the outer packaging on vintage 60s era sewing patterns.

  3. Good find. Comic book illustrations lend an interesting, urban edge to fashion illustration. Love what European artists and designers are bringing to the table at the moment. Thanks for introducing this one to me!
