Philip Hopman

Philip Hopman (1961) graduated from the Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam. Since 1988 he illustrated over 120 children's books for Dutch and foreign publishers. His pictures are crammed with hilarious details; his dashing style shows great professional skill. Watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations capitalize on the text in comic detail.

Philip Hopman and Tjibbe Velskamp have collaborated on many children's picture books. Among them is 22 Orphans, published in the U.S. by Kane/Miller (October 1998) and in seven other countries as well. 22 Orphans was awarded a Silver Brush (an important Dutch award) in 1999.
