My name is Libby VanderPloeg and I'm an illustrator and designer. I grew up in Michigan on the edge of the Great Lakes dunes in a little town called Grand Haven. Since then, I've lived in Grand Rapids, Chicago, New York, and Stockholm. My work comes out of my deep affinity for storytelling, music, letterforms, printed ephemera, and wildlife. None of these works could have been made without the world's finest brioche and several good, strong cups of coffee.
For illustration work, I'm repped by the lovely and talented team at Snyder NY.
