My traditionally painted artworks displayed for sale here have a special meaning to me as I painted them at the beginning of my career.
I started working in the animation Industry in the 90's. In those days backgrounds were still painted manually with traditional brushes and other classical tools. We worked in a variety of techniques like gouache ink and acrylics.
I was part myself of the fast digital transition that took place around the year 2000.
Nearly all background artists of my generation and surely the younger background artists now work with digital drawing boards. Our clients demand it as all pipelines became fully digital and manually painted backgrounds have become a rare item and a disappearing craft .
Enjoy viewing! Regards, Erik.
