For over 25 years, I have been working as a creative director, conceptioner and texter in a advertisment agencies. Then, I started to rediscover my love for developing artwork, and slowly built up a side business until going "full freelance" in 2017.
So I started out as a hobbyist but have always done semi-professional stuff in one way or the other. During the years, I have done art and text for several publishers and systems.
In the Nineties I did computer game graphics for Amiga games by Silver Style Entertainment (who did Risen II and Simon the Sorcerer, among other things).
I also did several pix for the German releases of Feder & Schwert, the German publisher of White Wolf's "Vampire: The Masquerade" (German art and extra content of "Berlin bei Nacht" and extra art for the "Brujah Clanbook" and "Milwaukee Bei Nacht").
Oh, and I did the full artwork for the Berlin BloodBowl League Rules Pamphlet. That was great fun.
In 2006 I started doing freelance stuff "in earnest", and have since contributed art and writing to
– Shadowrun RPG by Catalyst Games
– Shadowrun RPG (German) by Pegasus Spiele
– Aborea RPG by rising systems
– D&D RPG (in this case via InMediaRes)
– Battlelords of the Twenty-Third Century RPG by SSDC
– Battlelords of the Twenty-Third Century Online Game by Athena Virtual Productions
– Traveller RPG (German) by 13Mann
– Contact: Code Omega RPG by Robert Hamberger (biometal79)
– Transfer for the Universal Roleplaying Game URPG
Apart from doing illustrations, I also write for some RPG systems, my biggest contribution being the development of the "modern" (post-2060) Berlin setting for Shadowrun both in published books (Berlin sourcebook, Berlin 2080 sourcebook, Datapuls: Berlin PDF, all by Pegasus) and on my quite extensive website www.shadowrunberlin.de
Thankfully, I am supported by several fans over at Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/aasartconcept), my biggest dream being to be able to live off Patreon and provide the RPG community with free content both artwork- and content-wise. (One is allowed to dream, neh? ).
Since the question pops up every now and then: YES, I ABSOLUTELY DO COMMISSION ARTWORK. Just send me an e-mail (see www.aasartconcept.com) or contact me through social media, i.e. FB (please do not contact me via DeviantArt, as I am apparently too dumb to see new notifications there). I'm sure we can work something out that suits your request as well as your budget.
