Artist Focus: Rik Oostenbroek

Every now and then I sit browsing Behance and wishing I had even a little bit of the talent most of these guys have. Today I’d like to share with you the work of an illustrator whose work has blown me away…


Rik Oostenbroek is a 23-year-old Dutch illustrator who makes insanely unique and dynamic work, almost literally dripping with colour and created with a singular vision that’s quite unlike anything I’ve seen before. You should really check out his work, by visiting the links below or just scrolling. Go on. Just scroll a bit, you might like it!

What’s the deal?

He’s worked for a bunch of great clients such as ESPN, Viacom and Nike and you can see why they’d be interested in his visual style. It’s time for me to shut up though, and let you see the work.

See Rik’s website at and check out his Behance profile and if you’re the social kind, he’s on Twitter at @RikOostenbroek
