As an illustrator Niels sets himself to the test of presenting a concept or to communicate a message in his own unique style. He works in a variety of analogue and often surprising techniques and media, making him an unique voice in the illustration world. In the past he has done this for a number of clients such as Eindhovens Dagblad, NRC, Het Parool, Dutch Design Week, De Effenaar and musicians like Anan Ya'ari, Charlie & the Lesbians and the Mandolin Sisters.
