My Bio

Did you ever had the feeling that there’s something missing from our world? Your feeling was right! Time has left many magnificent creatures, that once roamed our planet, behind. Biologist and amateur graphic designer Bas Engels is bringing them back into the world of Fossyls and you can witness them in their digital exhibits!


Fossyls are the graphically designed creatures that have been resurrected into their digital exhibits in the world of Fossyls. Long extinct animals from the past roaming around on these servers; prehistory in the making! Don’t expect them to be scary, because all Fossyls are cutely designed, but still retain their natural features that once made them unique!


Bas Engels uses his knowledge of (paleo)biology and animal anatomy to create Fossyls in his own style; cute, fluffy, but still retaining recognizable features. He works as an ecologist in the field of ornithology and uses his spare time to work on his graphic designing skills by making presentations, posters, invitations and many other designs. Fossyls are solely designed by using Microsoft Office’s PowerPoint and put in their natural exhibits using photos from Unsplash.com.


Every now and then, new extinct creatures will be resurrected en presented here on this website. You can follow the project on social media to keep up with the newest additions to the Fossyl family. Thank you for visiting the Fossyls!

Oh hey, leuk om een andere Nederlander hier te zien! Ik vind je stijl heel schattig!

Hey hallo! Dank voor het volgen en natuurlijk voor het compliment!

I didn't know you could draw with Power Point! Respect!

The possibilities are endless... if you know where to look though =)
