Melcher Oosterman (1998) is a freelance illustrator from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His work mainly consists of tragic and humorous characters who inhabit busy worlds full of details and bright colours. Ever channeling his fascination for the awkward and absurd, Melcher likes to tell stories and celebrate the imagination. He navigates between editorial and commercial work whilst always having a few personal projects in the making like a new zine or series of sculptures. His work can be found on beer bottles, posters and news outlets.
