Many illustrators take years to develop a defining personal style, but it’s apparent that recent graduate Stephan van Wyk has already found his. His imaginative, childlike and charming imagery evolved with a lot of positive reinforcement and encouragement from his lecturers at Stellenbosch Academy, but an arts career wasn’t always the plan.¬†Stephan says that his¬†road to illustration has mostly been on a whim, beginning in Grade 11 when he dropped accounting to do art because he liked to paint.


Stephan chooses painting over working digitally and says, “With computers making everything so mechanical these days, I’m enjoying being able to push and constantly playing with my own style, and to my joy, it seems the market is demanding a more human and quirky brand of illustration.”
