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!…
  • Listening to: WWD soundtrack
  • Reading: How the brain got language
  • Playing: with my sketchbook
  • Eating: paper
  • Drinking: Moisture from the air (and ice coffee)

After the post yesterday I felt like, and :iconmattmart: acknowledged me in that, to apologize for the little but dirty part I played in the Montanaspinus affair. Again, it wasn't to make us look or feel superior but was intended to be humorous and with a little educational background. I think in both cases we failed pretty much and the tactics we used weren't fair. I think I can speak for all people involved that no one of us had this in mind when it started, I was skeptical about it but hadn't imagined that someone would pick it up and would write a Wikipedia article about it*. Rants from colleagues and others are in many ways justified. I feel very bad about all this and I hope after writing this down I can have a few calm nights here on vacation again. 
So sorry for all this mess. :( 

Someone commented recently: "Boi, that escalted quickly." And that's true.

I know this can't make things good again but maybe you wouldlike to hear that I'm working in the moment on a real new theropod, and a giant one too. Hopefully it will be published in the next days. I know at least a couple of guys who will be pretty excited about this.

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?
