// WACOM AND DOUG CHIANG
Being inspired by exhibitor Wacom on Facts I got introduced to the amazing possibilities of DIGITAL PAINTING. On the STAR WARS CONVENTION in London 2016, I got the chance to talk to Doug Chiang. I told him about my plans to attend a course of concept art, but that I was unsure if there still would be a future for me as a concept artist, having already a career behind me. He gave me the example of Ralph McQuarrie who started a 2nd career after Boeing. His words motivated me extra in my choice and so I went studying again, a fulltime course of concept art at the other side of my country. It was a steep learning curve, but I got through it and learned so much in that 1 year!
// GAME OF FRUITS
As students concept art we got the assignment to develop concept art for a short movie, themed “Evolution”. Fascinated by birds & nature, this became my subject.
It’s part of my portfolio with concept art for characters (unique bird species), setdesign (a special tree) and vehicle and props that belong to the main character “Bertil Bretel”. My project "Game of fruits", is a nod 😉 to the tv-series “Game of Thrones”, because of the fierce competition between my invented birds.
