Drip For Drip is the portfolio of commercial illustrator Wijtze Valkema (1983). Graduated in Graphic Design in 2005 with four internships in the Netherlands and USA completed, he jumped into a freelance career. Focusing on illustration since 2012, Wijtze welcomed various editorial clients, providing the visual part of stories for newspapers, magazines and online media as well as collaborating with agencies, brands and publishers on projects ranging from murals to books to apparel to packaging.

With a background in design, Wijtze looks at his projects through the lens of a designer and believes context and application come first. His work process focuses on the composition and making the illustration work well within the context of the final product.

Hiring an illustrator is not just trading artwork for money, it's a collaboration between people, working together to make a product that's meant to be seen and experienced by people. The creative process is not the result of pushing buttons on a computer, it's people working together to communicate with people.

His personal work often includes printing in some form, as it offers a tangible framework for otherwise flat, digital shapes. Wijtze is also an active cyclist and guitar picker.
