Born 1973 in  Oldenburg (that's in the north of Germany). I'm single and spend most of my life either in laboratory or in front of a drawing. I have been drawing all my life. Originally it was always fan-work, you know, people and things from cartoons and movies. And I still do today. Everything I do is selftaught, though I have learned much through tips and advices from friends from the net. I mostly use pencil and pen, and color the drawing via computer or aquarell. I have dabbled a bit with airbrush, but am not happy with the results. My favorite genre is mysthic sci-fi (I'm a great Star Wars fan) and anime (long live El Hazard!), but I almost equally love Fantasy. As an aged roleplayer I have much experience with Fantasy and I have drawn much for fanzines and players. I even did a bit for the 4th Edition of Talislanta. I tend to draw many characterdrawings, especially for my fellow roleplayers. These drawings sadly don't always meet with their ideas of the character, but till now, no one has killed me for that. And I love to draw characterstudies of figures from novels and books. My drawings are often influenced by comic and anime art.

Favorite Fantasy/Scifi Movies and TV Shows
Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings

Being a role-playing gamer and having seen one of your art in an adventure ("The Abbananzzi"), I was very happy to find your gallery and notice some more art from the game world. I especially like Isleif.


PS: In the Adventure, they're called "Abbanzzi of the Dance".

All your pictures are wonderful: The character designs, the faces, the clothes, all are beautifully drawn. You are truly an inspiration to all of us self taught artists!

I really like the way you draw, I think you're inking and shading is very good, the characters all seem to have depth and a personality, thanks for putting your artwork up.

Bin wirklich beeindruckt von deinen Bildern.
Du scheinst wirklich vielseitig zu sein, gut dass du dich nicht auf einen Themenbereich festlegst.
Freu mich darauf, mehr von dir zu sehen

Excellent gallery, love the line word, great job. Your art reminds me of old school D & D art.

Your work is just almost perfect, you have great skill as an inker and that’s not easy to find... Loved the style, not very common here.
