Hi deviant friends,

I've realized I forgot to tell you about my new blog: Questlog. It chronicles my effort to fabricate an entire Dnd 5e adventure, complete with maps and illustrations and things (yes I CAN CONFIRM IT HAS THINGS!)

what you doin' still reading this? go read my latest post a bout the creation of the evil (and also vile) Saltor!

Dear Internet,

I wish a google search for "alternate stream of revenue for an illustrator"  would turn up something good instead of wealthy Nigerian princes and pyramid schemes. I love my job, but sometimes I wish I had more time to dote on a project, you know. Polish it, cuddle it, spend a working day just pondering it while sipping a cup o tea. Yeah that would be great.

Dreams must be made into reality, is my vision on things, so lets get to it!  

From the outside at least, projects like childeren's books and the novels that Brom releases seem like good ideas. Something I can finish by meself and then shop around for a publisher. I think getting a publisher behind me is the way to go, as opposed to self publishing (or kickstarter). Self publishing requires me to find my own audiance, which I certainly do not have right now and might work eventually after years more of illustartions and some big clients. But I never was a patient man.

Perhaps the fact that I live in the Netherlands might work for me for once. Holland, like the down to earth Calvinists we are, never had a big  taste for fantasy related products like our neighbours had. No fantasy book publishers of note, no great Dutch fantasy authors or artists. We do however have a strong tradition in (exceedingly strange) childrens books, lots and lots of Dutch authors and Illustrators. So there definately is a good chance to get published if i come up with decent material. Also fantasy as a concept finally seems to take a hold here, nothing yet like our crazy neighbours, but its slowly getting better. A growing market with a small talent pool always offer opportunities i think.

Stuff to ponder about to be sure, but for the time being: pixels need smithing.

cya internet,

Nick

Dear 2011,

I love you and hate you. Its been a rough couple of months. The company where i had my day job whent tits up, that is to say bankrupt. This is one of these moments i am thankful to be born in the Netherlands. The government payed all wages and such i was due, which basically meant i had a couple of months to find a new job. Nice especially with a 7 month old baby.

the world is a strange place.

two months ago: no day job, few painting jobs, owed loads of payment by clients
now: swamped with work, clients paying, starting a new job next week and expecting an 'ooooge tax return

strange indeed

this week is gonna rock, little responsibilties loads of time to paint, which means i'll get to finish a ton of personal commisions i promised people, and my ultimate fighter entry for the contest over on artorder: theartorder.com/2011/03/23/the…

submitting to tons of potential clients, hope something comes out of it.
Also, I am gonna remove most of my monochrome from the page just so you know.
lastly, moving back to acrylic paint again like this one:

Rage Golem by mr-nick

keeps me entertained and an entertained nick is a effecient nick

Dear interweb people,

You come across as quite sensible. I mean, if you reading this you are likely indoors and baby its cold outside (great song). So Kudos. No Kudos if are reading this outside on your Iphone. Silly you, you have to take off your gloves to manipulate that arcane device, and this not interesting enough to risk frostbite. If are you risking frostbite to play Plants V.S. Zombies you do get kudos, though just a few.

On with the Biznats:
So the sci-fi sounding 2010, or 20-X as I liked to call it, is drawing to a close. So is the first year of me as a free-lance illustrator. All things considered it went better than expected. Over 150 illustrations turned in, 3 covers, 2 features in Imagine FX and published in 14  different books. Next year's  goals include, among other things, a move to better paying gigs and more colour work.
This year I did about 10 commissions for the guys at Mongoose Publishing. Two of the covers I did for these guys. I like to thank the company in general and Will Chapman(ad) in particluar.  Thanks amigos for taking a chance on some fresh meat!

Next Year (the only decent song by Jamie Culum, particularly the trumpet solo, ironically not preformed by Jamie) s'gonna be great I think! More painting, less dayjob.  
More family time, less boring late night meetings. More hoodies, less neck ties!
I wish you all a Very Mery Christmas and a 2011 as smooth as the ruby Port I'm sippin by the fire (well electric heater....)

HoHoHoHoHo!

Dear internets,

what have I been up to you ask? Loads of things as usual. Most of it trivial ofcourse. Not worth mentioning in general, unless you finds my new lasagne recipe of interest. In which case a comment stating such sentiments will get you more of the same ilk.

of more interest might be:
-I have accepted a ton more diagrams and maps to make. The client seems to really like em. Maybe worth pusruing in the future. It seems a less crowded field (though with stiff competition)
-worked with a few new clients. Note to self: dont get to familliar with fresh clients
-Apeared in the December issue of Imagine FX, useful learning experience: callibrate my monitor, because it prints out much too dark and desaturated.
-Done some interior colour work and a cover for 13 Mann, a German company. Nice guys.
-Accepted a couple of haste jobs for new clients. Not a smart thing when you have a 4 week old.... Maybe I should be more selective in the Jobs I take, though I am just coming to terms with HAVING JOBS to choose from. The work was accepted and finished in time, but I felt I could do better. I hope the client gives me another shot.

we will ditch the annoying list format for the rest of the post. My eyes are starting to hurt. If I updated this thing more I would have to cram so much stuff in here (or I could do less :) ). I started blocking out a novel with me mate Berend Golfman. We noticed there are a ton of translated Fantasy novels in the Netherlands but no original Dutch ones. Lets see if we can get it finished, both of us are major procrastinators. Which isnt helped by the fact I am playing some major MIINECRAFT atm (google it, it is teh awesome). Which is either a very good game for a creative individual, (you make castles and stuff out of stuf you mine and harvest) because its rewards creative thinking, or a very bad game, because it sucks up all time.   

so yeah if you want a killer recipe, or tips on how not to clean a deep fryer pelase comment.

love y'all

cheers,

Nick

dear web,  

I surely hope you dont contain any spiders. I have been having bizarre nightmares of spiders. I dindt used to be afraid of spiders, but I am starting to develop a dislike for the critters...

right

enough about spiders. 'been fairly busy. Painting vikings for Mongoose, and sort of cyberpunk for German company 13 Mann, and some stuff that I cant talk about but hopefully works out. Also finishing the last personal commissions before the baby comes. Speaking of the near developed infant: the baby acoutrements are all complete. Clothes, bed, all sorts of arcane devices of which they diclose the function only to those with mammary glands, diapers, the whole shebang. All bought, assembled, arranged and ready. Phew, that feels great.

If you want a personal commission  check out the FAQ: mr-nick.deviantart.com/journal… and shoot me an e-mail.

right y'all, peace out!

nick

p.s if you have any questions, make some noise: info@nickegberts.

p.p.s I like the idea of a postpostscript, but i have nothing to add :(

dear world,  

things are going swimmingly. Well better then swimmingly actually, since i cant swim very well, I just kind of float (i can float) and paddle like a dog. My client repertoire is growing, my day job is nice and unobtrusive, and I finished most work on my house. so yeah. The baby is coming in August so I'm sure that i'll shake things up a bit.

Last month I started doing personal comssions and so far that has been going great. If you want an illo before november (beacause of the baby) i have got two spots left. The first couple should be in their new owner's inboxes now . Check it, its there. Commission info/rules: mr-nick.deviantart.com/journal…

Dear internet,

I just made a poll on my page about having a 5 year plan. I have a one year plan and its kind off sucky. It consisted of one thing-> "paint a cover". In January that seemed like and farof and mystical thing. Once obtained all would fall into place... I must have had an aneurism or something when I wrote that plan. Last month I actually did paint a cover for Mongoose Publishing (nice lads they are, its for their Lone wolf line)and its was well received to boot. I focused all my energy on that goal and when I achieved it, I was like: mkay checked that box now what?

I reverted to my, Ill just paint and play video games a bit state, which isnt healthy at all. yuck

So now what? I'm gonna write up a plan with a broader (5 years if you will)scope, so I always have new goal lined up. Ill let you guys know how that pans out. If you have any ideas 'bout this please share below.

see you around,

Nico

dear Internet,

how arrrr you feeling today? Thats great. I'm doin' awesome thanksss for askin'. When I say great, I mean Hyper. Like some Synergyst cast Haste and Bravery on me. Im sorry for the geeky Final Fantasy reference there. Thats what happens if you drink copious amounts of espresso. Mmm it tastes sooo good. Teeth chatteringly so.
If you are an addict like me there are only two options IMO. You either fight it and go decaf (boo hiss), or give in and indulge/revel and seek increasingly better highs. Being spineless, I never was one to supress any urges. As a reult, I bought an 'ooge fully automated, bean grinding espresso machine (of doom).

I spent the last couple of days between working on my first cover commission for Mongoose (thanks for deflowering me guys :P ) and playing the latest in the field of spkikey haired epic games. Both are exceedingly enjoyable, also, Square-Enix seems to have lots of love for the busy creative:
A. because the game is achingly georgous and obsessed with showing that off.
B. the design of the monsters and world and vehicles is very creative and ispiring.
C. the game is flooded with save points, and as such perfect for a break between painting.

However a coffee infused nick franticly fighting a difficult boss whilst gulping down too hot coffee is not a good combination. It turns out my x-box controller does'nt like coffee as much as it's owner does /sadface

dear Internet,

Today I found out that Internet companies you do not have a subscription with, can cut you off from the company you do have a subscription with. Our neighbours applied for an internet subscription. Their choice company cut of our line to replace it with the one for the neighbours. Lovely. ETA on a working connection? 3 weeks. Thats a lot of time for a junkie like me, and I would like to take this moment to apologise to my wife to upsetting the harmony/wa of our homestead my frustration. Sorry dear, love you alot :D , the upside is ill spend more time with you and less with WOW.

As some of you regulars have noticed, I have have started a semi weekly sketchbook ( mr-nick.deviantart.com/gallery… ). These come from my vast folders filled with sketches. Vast because I find designing creatures and characters extremly relaxing and often do so. These tend to be done in pencil, on a4 size printer paper, and get tossed on a pile on my desk. Once in a while, (usually when my wife complains about the state of my desk) these get sorted through, and the ones with a bit of potential (and not too many coffee stains) get filed away.

Some of you are freelance artist or art directors, some are not. I'd like to know your opinion on them. Do you think it adds something relevant to my page? Do you think it gives me an advantage with getting a job? Are they interesting enough to keep uploading? If ye got a couple of minutes please check 'em ( mr-nick.deviantart.com/gallery… )out and let me know.

This morning I was doing my semi-daliy Blog tour and I found an interesting read on
Jon Schindehette's Artorder blog ( artorder.blogspot.com )conceirning me. A while back I entered in one of the site's many contests, the eventual end result is winding up in one of my favorite mags.  This is what Jon wrote about it:

" This weekend I finally got my hands on the U.S. October release of ImagineFX. A while back I had been contacted by ImagineFX to be a part of a news story. They had been contacted by a couple of artists concerning ArtOrder and wanted to feature the blog. To say the least, I was very honored. I would like to thank the artists that believed in this blog enough to mention it to the magazine staff. I'd like to thank Claire Howlett and Beren Neale for the wonderful write-up. Most of all, I'd like to thank the artists that take part in this little community on a daily basis. It is because of you that this blog continues to grow and thrive. My most humble thanks go out to each and every one of you. Also, I'd like to congratulate J Lonnee, Michael Franchina, NICK EGBERTS, and Jorge Lacera on having their artwork selected by the magazine to represent ArtOrder in the article. "

awesome.

Dear Interweb,

I'll be out of office for two days (The 30th of april and 1st of May), as it's Queen's day in Holland and I intend to spend it lounging in the country. Three cheers for the Queen: Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

cheers,

Nick
