Commercial illustrator Wijtze Valkema (1983) graduated in Graphic Design in 2005 and did a total of four internships in the Netherlands and USA before starting a freelance career. 

Focusing on illustration since 2012, Wijtze welcomed various editorial clients, providing the visual part of stories for newspapers, magazines and online media as well as collaborating with agencies, brands and publishers on projects ranging from murals to books to apparel to packaging.

He actively curates his work and behind-the-scenes footage on his Instagram, which is also the go-to platform for showcasing his side-project Drip For Drip, where Wijtze invites illustrator friends to trade paper coffee cups.

His work was included in the 2015 exhibition Secret 7", the 2015 exhibition 'Festival der Vooruitgang' by the Correspondent and the 2016 exhibition Buiten Binnen Drenthe before curating his first solo show 'Team ASAP' at Blackbird Coffee in Utrecht, the Netherlands in 2016.
