Joschua Knüppe
Artist | Professional | Varied
Hi, my name is Joschua Knüppe

In the moment I study free art at the Academy of fine arts Münster and I hope to work and teach one day as a independent artist and illustrator.
My work can be split into three big parts:
1. Paleoart and Paleontography
2. fictional ecosystems, some of them on other planets
3. mythical creatures, especially dragons, depicted in a realistic way

All my work is connected together and form large four-dimensional networks which become more and more dense with the time.
In terms of an classic modernist I'm a concept artist, which means that the idea is for me always more important or interesting than the form of it, I still try to improve myself, and I see that it work, but the construct, the concept behind my artwork is the real art.

I love comments, positive and negative, try to reply each of them and 'm always open for questions.

Projects which are belong together and form large four-dimensional networks:
-Part time humans
-Dragons of the world
-Wegener 2
-Future birds and their world
-Organic technology
-Paleoart (with Jurassic Germany and many more)

Out of this I have two other projects:
-GDM (Global Dinosaur Monument)

This ID cards have a place for interests and hobbys but I'm interested in too much things so I count them here:
dinosaurs, pterosaurs, mosasaurs, birds, dragons, art, art history, paleontology, walking, annoy creationist, writing, reading, drawing, painting, working with clay wood and metal, ants, biology especially behavior, bio technology, bio informatics, fantasy, SiFi, being at DA, doing exhibtions, holding lectures, arguing and many more.

Well, take a look at my Gallery maybe you find something, beautiful, strange, interesting or more positive adjectives ;)

If you want to use my work ask first, I normally don't mind but I want still the controll over my work. Also I don't like to see my work out of it's original context, how I said: the story behind the pictures is important!

Commissions: I normally don't do commissions, exeptions are for scientists who want a reconstructions. In addition I do sometimes sketches for friends and people who ask friendly =)

If you have questions or other reasons to contact me can send me a Note here on DA or mail me under:

I'm now also on Facebook!…
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Watching: funny Ark Let's Play
  • Playing: with my sketchbook
  • Eating: Apple
  • Drinking: Moisture from the air
Some will notice it already, there is a new paleomeme making its rounds on Facebook.
#Addeyestothefenestrae was shamefully initiated partly by me after leaving this comment under a picture
of a Spinosaurus with eyes in it's anorbital fenestrae.

"That could the next big thing after the laser show! Add eyes to every fenestra, orbit, nostril etc. you can find!"

Than :icontitanlizard: created the hashtag and :iconyoult: produced the first examples of paleoart with wrong eyes.

 This isn't the first time someone provoked a facepalm moment of this type but maybe ie was a bit too stupid this time
and maybe it will spread enough to educate some people this way how to make it better :3

Here my first try:…

any trilobites you would like to suggest for my new project?…

What about Arcticalymene?
The entire genus is named after members of the Sex Pistols!
A. jonesi, A. cooki, A. viciousi and A. rotteni!
Or the genus Mackenzirkus, where each species is named after a member of the punk band The Ramones?

I really enjoy your hypothetical biology works. You ought to compile them into pdfs, maybe touch up some of the grammar, fill out a bit more info on the species and you'd have something I'd love to buy.
I'd especially like to see more of…


I liked the idea of pterosaur evolution as if they were species that Darwin could discover. Keep going, you're very much the next Dougal Dixon

Will there be birds and reptiles (not dinosaurs or other prehistoric reptiles, modern reptiles such as lizards, snakes, crocodiles, turtles, etc.) in Nea? I'm just saying.
Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2015  Professional General Artist
Yes, all living classes of vertebrates and invertebrates will be present on Nea =)
