Steam(punk)train

A couple of years back I was asked to do some steampunk
concept art for a new game project.

unfortunally the company went bankrupt.

It was a really cool looking project.
Alas - since the project doesn't exist any longer, I get to
show my train.

woot woot...




The tiger that eat the stars


This comes from a story my stepson tells my little son before he
falls to sleep at night.

It's about a tiger that eats the stars.
The girl came as a natural sidekick.

I guess there's another childrens book in the brewing...

The picture has been edited due to

The Humble Amulet

This was interesting.
Usually a book cover has to show a character and usually
that person has to look in to the 'camera'.

But here I let the house and the lighting play the main
character and the girl is now on the same side as you, the
viewer, looking up at the house.

Well... that was my intention anyhow, if it worked out or not
- you'll be the judge of that.

The locker

One morning he received a letter.

The letter contained nothing but a key and an adress.

Curious enough, it was his birthday, and the same day
his parents had chosen to vanish into thin air.

This was indeed the beginning to a peculiar day.



This is another book I'm working on, and though the drawing
itself could use some more work I'm quite happy with the mood.

The light bulb men and the mushroom fairy


This was a fun assignment.
I had complete freedom to paint whatever I wanted, as
long as it has something to do with:

1. two children
2. a time machine
3 a mystical place


So... this was the picture that popped up in my head.

I really hope nobody ever tries to analyze this picture.
Not that I know what messages lies beneath this perfectly normal
scene, but I have this nagging feeling that it's right there - the
message. Like my dreams.
They are always so simple and cliché like me running around
trying different masks... Not very David Lynch!

UPDATE:
Now you can get the Mushroom Fairy as a poster, or greeting card, or iphone cover, or what have you.
Go buy it here at once. Yes. that was an order.
Oh... and tell all your friends about it.
