I’m Habiba Doorenbos; an illustrator based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

As a child I spent every spare minute drawing mermaids, centaurs, princesses and horses. Then I fell in love with film and I studied Production Design at the Dutch Film and Television Academy in Amsterdam. After a journey of discovery in the movie industry I ended up rediscovering my first love: making illustrations. After learning everything there is to know about creating illustrations digitally, I now explore hand drawing with pencil and pen. There’s nothing like the momentum of putting a line on a piece of paper.

For 6 years I have been learning some wonderful art skills from Bob Gibson of The London Police. Helping their art come to life on canvasses and big walls has been a dream come true! Check out their work here!

Greetings, Habiba
