Keith Noordzy - Illustrator

Keith’s artwork has been compared to that of Maurice Sendak, Tim Burton, and Edward Gorey. While characters may look cute and innocent, they usually have somewhat of a dark side to them.

He is currently working on Ellie Not Forgotten, his first graphic novel that deals with issues of depression/anxiety/grief through the eyes of a fifteen year old girl that has lost her soul and grown a pair of antlers after the death of her mother. To get an early look at how it is developing, please head over to his Patreon site where you can follow the journey for $1 a month and get to see rough layout sketches, concept designs of characters, locations, etc. You are also welcomed and encouraged to comment and share your thoughts on the process so far.

Currently looking for representation. Available now for full-time, contract work and gallery showing opportunities.
