Wouter Tulp attended the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Since his graduation in 2001 he has been making a living as an illustrator.
Starting out as a caricaturist, Wouter now concentrates on character design and concept art for animation. Recentley he worked on a German feature project with Harald Siepermann.
Key in Wouters work is the storytelling aspect. “ the story is the main source for designing the character. I want to know how he feels, how he moves, what he thinks. I try not to design merely the outside of the character, but also the inside”.
