Often one of the best things about fandom is the fanfic, the fanart, the creations surrounding a show, a book or a movie. Because yes, there’s some magic in loving the same thing and dissecting it over and over, but there’s even more magic in creating something that inspires people to use their own talents.
Now, as someone who can and has written plenty a fanfic, I will admit I always tend to gape more at the fanart that inevitably pops up in every fandom. That’s mostly because there’s no way I could manage that, but also because that’s way easier to hang on my wall, and we all want some sort of proof of how much of a geek we are, don’t we?
Which is why today I want to shine a spotlight on the uber talented Maartje van Hoorn, whom I had the pleasure of talking to about Timeless, her art, and the work that goes behind her creations. So here is a little interview with her, and, of course, a glimpse at all her beautiful art.
What’s your inspiration? How and why do you do what you do?
What’s your favored technique? What’s your process like?
Why Timeless? What is it about this show that inspired you?
Who was your favorite character to draw?
Where can people find your work?
