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!…

Hi guys,

I was on vacation (in the Eifel, which mean many old volcanos and castles) for two weeks, visited a friend right after that and work at the moment on my first real scientific commission (but I will not talk about that yet)

Many things have happen!

I submitted my third video with the last part of sketchbook 10:…

There is a new tapejarid, where I made the first, non-paper picture for:…

Homo floresiensis is still a own species, a wonderful article about bad science:…

Oh! And I will visit most likely the SVP annual Meeting in Berlin this year! I hope to see some of you there (I know that Emily Willoughby will come...) :la:

Duane Nash has a very interesting hypothesis about the locomotion of the newest Spinosaurus reconstruction:…

Aaaaaaand I had much time to think about my new camcorder and to experiment with it. I had the idea to document myself during the act of sketching a creature suggested by the community, maybe this could be a YouTube channel (Sketchbook Empire could be a name... ;))
What do you think about that, what extinct critters should come to live on the paper?

That's all for now.

All the best,

Ich bin per Zufall über deine Gallerie gestolpert und muss sagen, dass deine Paleobilder wirklich beeindruckend sind! Besonders deine Fische haben es mir angetan. Das verdient wirklich ein dickes Lob und von mir, die ich auch ein kleiner Paleofreak und angehende wissenschaftliche Illustratorin (ich studiere seit einem Jahr Scientific Visualization an der ZHdK in Zürich, auch wenn ich noch nicht gross dazu kam meine diesjährigen Arbeiten in meiner Gellerie hochzuladen bzw. die Paleontologie etwas habe schleifen lassen, wegen meines zur Zeit vollen Zeitplans und mich mehr den Comics gewidmet habe, was sich hoffentlich bald bessern wird) bin, auch gleich nen Watch.
Bei deinem Talent kann ich nur sagen, weiter so! Ich würde mich freuen bald mehr von dir sehen zu können =)
