Ellis van der Does is a Dutch illustrator and designer based in London.
Her style is clear, while using various techniques and popping colours, often combining existing forms to create new stories.

studied BA Illustration at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, from which she graduated (with honours) in 2012. During her time at the HKU she interned with
