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!…

Just giving a little update on what is going on with Pteros, we have no a lot more species online,
just today a Bellubrunnus of me was added, you can now search actively for genera.

On my artist page you will find now a lot more portraits, also two new species, Pangupterus and a 
still unnamed wukongopterid with a weird crest. More Wukongopterids will come in the future, I did the whole family a
while back.…

Hey bro, I think you are the one who might know this!

I own this huge book with tons of classic drawings, which you must have enjoyed a lot in your childhood, too.…
(Leben in der Urzeit von Zdenek Spinar)

but it is in German... Do you happen to know what's its English name and if it was ever published in En?

I have this book indeed on my bookshelf... 

The book wasn't originally published in German, unfortunately I don't know the original titel and the German
titel is difficult to translate, it's roughly "Life during primeval Times"

If you want art from Burian, I would search for his name =)

Ah, no, I mean that I have this book in German (Leben in der Urzeit), but I would like to find and buy it in English :) 
Meaning I have art, but I want to read the book, as well :) (Smile)
