About me:
I am Merel Wendt (1999), an illustrator and animator, currently based and studying in Groningen, the Netherlands.
I'm in my third year of the Illustration and Animation Design bachelor at Academy Minerva.
I like to explore the analogue way of image making.
You can often find me in the lithography workshop, screen printing in my room, painting skate decks, or drawing a lot of frames for an analogue made animation. 

I just finished organizing the Illustratie57 illustration festival and exhibition together with a group of fellow illustration students. 
Together with others, I took care of organising the seminars, and curating the exhibition.
The theme of this year's exhibition was "barricades". The event has taken place in October 2019 in Groningen.
