Hi, ....Don't got much to say, but I felt like it was time for a new journal ^^:

If you like you can follow me on instagram:
www.instagram.com/dreamchaserart/
or at my facebook page:
www.facebook.com/dreamchaser.art.5/

I am way more active there ^^;;
It has been a while since I posted anything here right? Lately I even forget Deviantart exists XD How are things going for all of you?
I am doing well. I am happy to say that my manga " heartlandstories:Robocity" has sold out! :D It went so fast. the books were gone within 3-4 months. Now I am working on the second book. I have the story and storyboards finished but for the remaining few days that are left in 2015....I am taking a little break from it and then will continue working on it in 2016.
I also hope that I can create more drawings and full on colour illustrations in 2016. I feel like I hardly did any this year...sigh :/ well...I have no lack of inspiration so there's that :D but as usual...it's time that I lack.

For those who are interested; A few months ago I also opened my own patreon page wich you can find here: www.patreon.com/dreamchaserart… with your help I can be able to bring my ideas and projects to life. :)

I wish you all very happy holidays!

Aright! After a long time of contemplating about this and checking out how it all works I have opened a Patreon page
www.patreon.com/dreamchaserart

Patreon is a site where you can support artists you like creating stuff that you love. It works a little like an ongoing Kickstarter - the pledges start much lower, and the rewards (prints, tutorials, original art, commissions...) are ongoing, too.

It's a dream of mine to be able to work as an artist full-time. Patreon gives me the chance to try if it can work. If you can imagine supporting me - starting as low as 1$ per month - head over and see what's in store for you in return!

This is still very experimental, and if you have any more good ideas for rewards or stuff to do and share in the patrons' feed, please let me know!

I am kinda late writing about it here, however I have been very busy recently because of the publication/release of my comic: Heartland stories:Robocity wich debuted at the animecon last month. It is now available in shops all over the Netherlands and Belgium ( both offline and online stores) The comic is in dutch so I will be writing in dutch again from here on out. I do plan to have it released on another language in the future ( i am looking at german or english) so if you are interested, feel free to like the facebook page of my comic for future news updates :) www.facebook.com/heartlandstor…

De strip is te koop in allerlei zaken online en offline zoals bol.com, de fnac, stripspeciaalzaken, de bruna etc. Maar uiteraard verkoop ik ook een aantal exemplaren in mijn eigen etsy shop, die ik dan ook direct voor je kan signeren :)

Mocht je graag een gesigneerd exemplaar in je bezit willen hebben, dan kan dat via mijn webshop hier:www.etsy.com/nl/listing/238879…

Mis hem niet! ;)

This upcoming weekend I will be attending the biggest animeconvention in the Netherlands. who else is coming?
I will be there with my own stand, but sitting alongside the dark dragon books stand who is the Publisher of my manga book " heartlandstories: robocity" wich will also make it's debut on that convention :)
During the dutch manga awards i will also hold a small presentation about my comic...wich i am quite nervous for >_<;;

So if you are visiting....please stop by to say hi :) I will also give away  the last few remaining small promo/art booklets for anyone who buys a copy of my comic :)

I would first like to thank everybody who has wished me a happy birthday ^^ thank you guys and gals haha.

The following message will be about the pre order of the dutch language version of my comic "heartland stories: Robocity" so I will be writing in dutch from here on. Sorry ^^;

Heb je interesse in een exemplaar van mijn eerste hardcover strip " robocity"? En wil je er ook een gratis gelimiteerde print bij? Dat kan! Je kunt nog pre orderen tot 31 mei! even voor de duidelijkheid hieronder nogmaals hoe het werkt:
1: je stuurt een bericht naar het volgende email adres: dreamchaserart@gmail.com met daarin je naam en hoeveel exemplaren je zou willen.
2: je krijgt van mij een bevestiging per email met verdere informatie.
3: Je hoeft van te voren niet te betalen. Betaling vind pas plaats wanneer het boek daadwerkelijk gedrukt is ( in juni)
4: na betaling word het boek met de prent naar je toegestuurd, of kun je de bestelling op komen halen op een van de beurzen waar ik aanwezig zal zijn.
5: elke print en boek zal ook worden voorzien van een handtekening :) emoticon

Mochten er nog vragen zijn, dan hoor ik dat graag!

Hello everybody!

I wanted to give an update on conventions that I will be attending this year so far.

At the end of April I will be attending Antwerpcon for the very first time  in Belgium :) it will be held at sunday the 26th

23-24th of may It will also be my first time attending Dokomi in Germany. I look very much forward to meeting german anime fans :)

12-14 June I will be at Animecon in Den Hague in the Netherlands. It is here that my first manga book in the heartland series  "Robocity" will be released and be available for purchase for the first time :D I look very much forward to see the end result of my book in Printform :)

Although it will be released in the Dutch language only at the moment, I most certainly plan to have it released in other languages as well, so if you are interested,  then you can follow the progress of my comic and any news related to it on it's official facebook page. It currently has 200 followers and counting. Once it reaches 400 followers, I will do a little give away ;)

Hello everyone.

For the past few years I have been working really hard at my comic "Robocity" wich was published in the (short lived) Dutch comic magazine named Strips2go. After the magazine quit, I decided to continue my comic and finally after a lot of hard work, I will have it published in a few months. It will be my first professionally published book wich I am very excited about.

The full title of my comic is " Heartland Stories: Robocity" Heartland stories is the name of a possible series that I might make of this. Robocity is the title of the story that is presented in this book itself. It is a self contained, completed one-shot story that takes place in a steampunk like fantasy world.  If you like steampunk and fantasy, then this comic might be for you ^^ If you are not a fan of steampunk, don't worry, this comic does feature colours instead of the brown only colour pallette that is found in many steampunk stories, no top hats, no goggles, no victorian-ness but instead, just my own style and idea of how I like to create a steampunk world.....it does feature a lot of robots though......but robots are fun...don't try to admit it hehehe ;P

Although the comic will be published in Dutch language only at first, I will definately have it published in English in the future as well and maybe in different languages as well if there is enough interest :)

You can follow the progress of my comic and any news related to it on it's official facebook page. It currently has 200 followers and counting. Once it reaches 400 followers, I will do a little give away ;)

I will of course be attending there with my own booth selling all sorts of stuff including several new things :) of course i will be bringing my artbook, prints, necklaces, keychains and more with me....and this time, in order to promote my upcoming comic, I will be handing out free mini promo booklet's to anyone who buys something from my stand :)

My booth will be right at the entrance of the dealerroom so you can't really miss me XD See you there!

Ahem! first: a happy new year and I wish you guys all the best and creativity in the new year!

Sorry to start this year on a bit of a downer  though ^^;  but I have been notified a while ago that some artworks of mine were used by this Wholesale manufacturer www.salesmanb2b.com/ Mainly their game of thrones and star wars chibi metal alloy charms. When checking the site, I suspect that they also use artwork from other people. After checking around google I even found a few  journals on deviantart from other artists that had their art stolen by them and warning others. This is one of the journals: celsa.deviantart.com/journal/O…

wich is why I decided to put it on here. If you create fanart, you might want to check their site out as well. I suggest especially taking a look at the charms and keychains. If you notice fanart from other artists, please let them know as well.
Time for an update here I guess :)

As the title suggests, I have been doing some interviews lately. I did an interview for the newspaper of the province of limburg in the Netherlands ( not local since it is bigger but not national either) and my first tv interview :) if you are curious about it you can check it out here but be warned that it is all in dutch and also in a dutch dialect. it basically is about me and my work and manga in general. it is pretty short: www.tvl.nl/nl/programmas/limbu…

I am getting used to it but I am Always nervous giving interviews since most reporters/journalist and other people have no clue about manga at all ^^;;

Aside from that, I have been working on my comic as usual and now all the linearts and flat colouring is finished and I have started on the real colouring deal :D can't wait to get it done. hopefully I get the colouring finished before 2015 but knowing me......ah well...i will try.

See ya next time!

okay were to start...oh yeah! erm about a month ago I was at the FACTS convention in Gent Belgium and it was fun :) I sold well and met a lot of people again old and new ^^ thanks to all who came by to visit my booth.

Now that things have calmed down a bit, I can finally continue working on my comic and commissions as well as update my store. I have already added a few new things to it but more is still to come :) why not take a look? the holiday season is coming after all..;) www.etsy.com/shop/dreamchasera…

I am  happy to announce that Edolie is out! Edolie is a story-oriented RPG made in association with Amaranth Games, and the fourth game made by Eridani games.  It is the first game of theirs that I provided artworks for. So what is it about?

All across the world of Edolie, people are gathering to celebrate Harvest, the biggest event of the year. Feasts and dancing will mark the passing of yet another generous year.
For Willow, it's a chance for her to travel to a neighbouring island to watch the festivals unfold, but this is going to be a Harvest unlike any that have come before.
Troubles from a dark past and conspiring events are about to be unleashed. A discovery is made far away that will bring everyone into danger... so why does nobody care?

If you are interested, please visit :iconeridanigames: for more information about the game and screenshots!
The game is available at
www.amaranthia.com/modules/ole…
and you can read more information at: www.eridanigames.com/forum/vie…

It was so much fun doing the artwork for this game ^^ I might even try doing a game all on my own....but it will take a while since I got a game of my own since I am so busy now >_<;; More news coming soon! peace!

I hope I can get my items and some new artworks, but most importantly: my new artbook, done in time >_<;;; if all goed well my next artbook will be ready in september....but i still need to create a few more artworks for it and i am sllowwwwwww...;_;

I will also be visiting Abunai con. I will not be going there as a dealer however, but as a visitor this time :) it has been so long since i last visited an animecon as a regular visitor and not need to stress out and work hard those days and being able to see and do stuff there freely. I do hope i can manage to get a stand there next year though.

will you all be visiting a lot of conventions this year? wich ones are your favourite? and did you ever try attenting a con as a dealer/artist? i am curious to read other people's experiences :) If i do not forget about it, i might plan to do a journal on do's and don't as a dealer/artist at conventions based on my experience :)

Hey ho everyone :) how's it goin'? :P

Just stopping by to say that the amazing skin company Decalgirl has released new skins for devices of a new piece of artwork of mine...well...new...it was not licensed by them before so that makes it sorta new i guess :) the drawing they choose is a picture named " A Vision" I don't think i have it in my DA gallery...
oh wait what's that you say? " what is a skin??" a skin or a Decal is a sort of protective sticker for any kind of device. they have them for phones laptops, gaming devices and much more. I also got a few for my Phone, iPod and playstation 3. so

So if you feel like pimping your favourite device with some of my art, you can also find some of it here in my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/dreamchasera…

I am going to lay down for a bit since my headache has been killing me a bit for a few days now ^^; i hope it will pass soon so that i can continue working hard on my artbook and manga.

Have a nice day guys!
