lifemachine's Profile Picture
falco verholen
Artist | Professional | Varied

my name is Falco Verholen aka lifemachine. i’m a freshly graduated video designer (HKU) and illustrator from the Netherlands. besides working as a filmmaker and illustrator i also have experience in creating and publishing graphic novels and short stories.

i love to create surreal, sometimes bizarre and dreamlike imagescapes. nature, animals, anatomy, fierce asian ladies, seductive young men and cold machines are among my favorite sources of inspiration. i love working in the morning or late at night and cannot create without music.

i am currently available for commissions. i do both original work as well as fan art and erotic drawings. message me at lifemachine at gmail com for more information. i'd love to work for you!

also, i'm currently happily working on a long-term webcomic. check to follow the adventures of Kyoko and Ashley as they venture through nightmares and deep forests to retrieve what they lost.

when i’m in a wild, unrestrained mood, i tend to draw nsfw stuff that ends up a little bloody, gory or bizarre. if you’d like to take a look, Message me and i’ll send you the link.

feel free to drop me a line and say hello or ask me something. i like finding messages in my inbox :-)

take care,

falco / lifemachine

A commission for a friend of mine wanting a gift for her father, whose family name is Loewenhardt. The dog belongs to the family. An exotic combination for sure!

A slide created for a day of workshops and networking for illustrators in The Hague. It felt great to compile an image from work that I'm actually proud of. :)
hey there sweeties,

i've decided to get a bit more active on dA again. connect with other artists, discover more awesome art and work on my own reach. i hope some of my old followers are still with me. it's been a while!

there will be some re-uploads of old work, but after that, a whole bunch of new pieces is going to pop up! i've worked hard to improve both my skills as well as my conceptual capabilities and diversity. incorporating graphic elements into my work has become really enjoyable for me. but the surrealism and felines (and hot dudes) will never go away!

i hope you're all doing great and enjoying the creative life. take care!
