Hi, my name is Joschua Knüppe

In the moment I study free art at the Academy of fine arts Münster and I hope to work and teach one day as a independent artist and illustrator.
My work can be split into three big parts:
1. Paleoart and Paleontography
2. fictional ecosystems, some of them on other planets
3. mythical creatures, especially dragons, depicted in a realistic way

All my work is connected together and form large four-dimensional networks which become more and more dense with the time.
In terms of an classic modernist I'm a concept artist, which means that the idea is for me always more important or interesting than the form of it, I still try to improve myself, and I see that it work, but the construct, the concept behind my artwork is the real art.

I love comments, positive and negative, try to reply each of them and 'm always open for questions.

Projects which are belong together and form large four-dimensional networks:
-Part time humans
-Dragons of the world
-Wegener 2
-Future birds and their world
-Organic technology
-Paleoart (with Jurassic Germany and many more)

Out of this I have two other projects:
-GDM (Global Dinosaur Monument)

This ID cards have a place for interests and hobbys but I'm interested in too much things so I count them here:
dinosaurs, pterosaurs, mosasaurs, birds, dragons, art, art history, paleontology, walking, annoy creationist, writing, reading, drawing, painting, working with clay wood and metal, ants, biology especially behavior, bio technology, bio informatics, fantasy, SiFi, being at DA, doing exhibtions, holding lectures, arguing and many more.

Well, take a look at my Gallery maybe you find something, beautiful, strange, interesting or more positive adjectives ;)

If you want to use my work ask first, I normally don't mind but I want still the controll over my work. Also I don't like to see my work out of it's original context, how I said: the story behind the pictures is important!

Commissions: I normally don't do commissions, exeptions are for scientists who want a reconstructions. In addition I do sometimes sketches for friends and people who ask friendly =)

If you have questions or other reasons to contact me can send me a Note here on DA or mail me under:

I'm now also on Facebook!…

My Youtube channel:…
  • Listening to: Blue Planet Soundtrack
  • Reading: your comments
  • Playing: with my sketchbook
  • Eating: paper and paint, the good one
  • Drinking: ice coffee
Hi guys, 

so apparently we are publishing now indeed a #paleostream book! At least 53 pages, probably more are planned and text is already written
down largely. Cover was just finished and we got someone to write a foreword.
What I still collect are quotes and statements from the community, so in case you have a few words to say about the project you are very welcome to write them down in the comment section :3 

In other news: because of technical difficulties we are trying in the moment to stream on twitch. 
In case you want to come over from time to time:

Hello, I really like your paleoart, so I would like to know if you would be intereseted in drawing Burianosaurus. It is our first dinosaur and I would be delighted to see your version. :) It is more of a question than a request. ;)
