Don't quit your day job.




Some of you might be interrested in what I normally do when not crouching under a table on all fours searching for a small piece of grey plastic.

I work as an illustrator, nowadays mostly with childrens books, but I've also done a lot of stuff for computer games, roleplaying games and film.

The worlds Games Workshop created has always been a source of inspiration for me in my work and references to it pop up in the most unexpected places - especially when I do concept art. I often try to do designs that would work as a miniature - strong silouettes, easily read and less cluttered than your standard computer game charachter. Jes is obviously an inspiration in this regard...

Anyway - here's a link to my official homepage: www.egerkrans.com

    1. Hmmm... Interesting style but not really what I'm going for...

      I like a classic approach -JRNs style is more in my vein

  2. Very nice! I'm studying to be an illustrator myself, it's great to see that you don't have to give up all your hobbies to work as an artist.
