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.

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
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!

Hola! Qué tal?? He escrito un journal sobre manuales de anatomía artística y he dejado unos links con las imágenes más interesantes de cada parte del cuerpo humano... A lo mejor te interesa verlo. Un saludo desde Valencia!!
