My Bio
Hey everyone.
My name is Erik and I am a Photoshop hobbyist from Germany. I have started practicing Digital Art around 2005 and since then I have come to love the genres of Photomanipulation, Space Art and Matte Painting.

In the past I have pursued a digital art career more seriously, joining up several renowned art collectives such as Depthcore, SlashThree and EvokeOne.
Besides, my work has been published in various books and magazines, among them the official Advanced Photoshop Magazine, The Book of Creation and even Ballistic: Exposé.

By now I have another job and practice digital art solely as a hobby. So no use to ask me about commissions.


Thank you for your interest in my page!

Hehe glad to see you here, good old times! Thanks for the compliments! :D How are things going for you?

Good. Completely stopped doing art for about 10 years though. Im working in a completely different field. But art is like having an itch that never really goes away so decided to go for it again. How are you?
