Las Meninas

Caroart-las-meninas

Inspired by various artists and current events I reinterpreted Diego Velázquez “Las Meninas”.

I created a digital painting, with one collaged element – the monitoring camera. I have replaced the characters of “Las Meninas” with representative people and things of contemporary life, like a Whistleblower, NSA and EU privacy policy, commodities etc..

I feel like Dancing

This is a 30 picture animation testing / ident / fun project

Since I am a kid I am mused by dancers. I feel in animation one could either push dance – or focus on subtle movements. I tried to remain subtle, keep a nice shape and then push everything else. Hope you enjoy my little experiment.

(wondering where that black line to the right comes from .. hmm)

Game Concepts

Hello, here is some concept art I’ve been doing for a game lately. I did make some notes to how I approached it, I hope this is helpful to someone. :) Please feel free to comment if you have ideas or comments in mind.

Cheers

P.S.: I painted over the logo, since I am not allowed to show which company/game this is, sorry for the ugly grey box, I just wanted to show where the logo is situated, since it belongs to the overall concept.

Props

The Rusty Knight Preproduction 2011. Rusty is living in a world where almost everything is made out of metal and is build out of different elements. Like e.g. a Cows body is made out of toaster, her head out of a cone and her hoof out of cups. Most things are second hand and recycled into new things. The challenge in designing the props was to always create something new, out of many old things and to use iron sheet as a base material for almost everything. Therefor I took many vintage elements, to create a creature or a modern element.

The original Ritter Rost Books by Jörg Hilbert are a must read to kids. And actually also a “must hear”, since Felix Janosa composed great songs which come on a CD with the books. The wonderful thing is, parents can also enjoy the read, since there are hidden jokes for adults.

Here I did both, the Design and the depicted Colors in Photoshop.

Graphic Recording

I was allowed to spend two days on a convention of a nice company, and visualize their ideas for them to make fast and good progress, which is memorable. I was surprised how well it turned out. Since only one, out of eight groups was supported that way I could compare easily. The one which was visually supported had a very complex and advanced output. In this gallery I uploaded the recollection drawings, done in Photoshop.

Creativeness in Lisbon

Lisbon is a wonderful city with many creative people and shops. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast of an Artist – she had this super sweet sticker on her fridge. In town there was this very cute Shop of Toys called Edicare with great brands like Djeco, Mudpuppy and Galison. The work of Hervé Le Goff, Geraldine Cosneau, Mike Lowery and Benjamin Chaud were highlights to me. All the other pics are self explaining I suppose. If not, feel free to ask. :)

Illustrated Campaign

Done for a hospitals support association campaign based on my illustrations. It is saying “Some Dreams might turn into Reality …”. The green elephant is their mascot. This is an A0 large Poster (which I had to buy new RAM for), it is almost as tall as a door and when the kids sit in the waiting room of the hospital, they can travel through it.
