Visual storyteller.

My name is Patrick van den Broek and I am an illustrator, cartoonist, animator and visual designer from Golden, Colorado. Thank you for visiting.

Drawing since I could hold a pencil, I have been filling sketchbooks with characters, stories and observations from my daily life. This passion for illustration and visual creativity has allowed me to work on amazing projects and build relationships with unforgettable, creative people. I always look forward to where the creative journey takes me next.
